Dawes Racing Team- All the talk about the Dawes bikes beeing rubbish. Do any of the other racers out there remember the the Dawes Racing Team in the mid to late 70's and perhaps what they were actually racing on. Were they even conected to the Dawes bikes talked about here...I remember them beeing a fairley strong team and I can't imagine they were racing on rubbish frames and components....
