Dawes Duchess Review

These days, bikes have become about looking sleeker and being almost robotic in both form and function. From the first moment that we laid eyes on the Duchess, we realized what a nice break it was to see something different. This is a proper fashionista’s bike, right down to the little basket. Once we had gotten over the fact that this bike was a total throwback to an earlier era, we got down to business.

At 16 kilos, the Duchess is no lightweight. However, unless you plan on tackling steep inclines, this is not something that you have to worry about. Despite the extra weight, the overall design of the bike make it a great option for those who are a little smaller.

The thing about road bikes is that we typically need them to perform more than one function. Here is where the Duchess really shines. Once we hopped on, we decided to head to a few different trails. First, of course, were roads and here the ride was absolutely wonderful. We decided to head down a less uniform path and were still pleased to see that the Duchess held up. Despite this comfort, there is a limit the kind of terrain that you can tackle.

One of the things that we were pleasantly surprised to witness was how easy it was riding up small slopes. Here, the weight had little impact. If we had tackled more serious ones, it may have been a problem but you will be fine attempting the less steep ones. The basket is not just for aesthetic purposes and really adds to the overall feel of being a commuter’s bike. It can easily hold a variety of objects for you.
