I'd like to built a commuter/utility/messaround type bike. I like hub gears, and I want a steel frame.
I've been looking at older Dawes bikes. Specifically a 'Streetwise' or Galaxy.
I know some have 135 OLN already (though I'll have to check before I buy). Are all other components standard? Meaning headset dia and threading, bottom bracket, brake mounts, mudguard and rack mounts etc.
I've already been caught out with the non standard-ness of older Raleigh and Peugeot bikes,
