Product Details

Pashley Princess Sovereign Classic Bike

Not only does the Pashley Princess Sovereign look just right: with its lugged steel frame; Sturmey Archer 5-speed hub gears; dynohub-driven headlamp; Sturmey Archer hub brakes; integral 'Dutch' lock, Brooks B66 sprung leather saddle; gold-lined mudguards; wicker basket with carrier; and Schwalbe Marathon Plus 26" tyres: this bike boasts one of the most complete specifications you'll find today at this sort of price.

Ordering a Pashley Bike 

Pashley bicycles are not mass produced. Every one is built to order. This means that we do not hold stocks of Pashley bicycles, bar the display bikes in our shops, which you are very welcome to come and admire (and test ride even) but which are not for sale. This means that if you order a Pashley from us, you can expect delivery around a month later. As with any order, we will keep you informed of its progress.

Key Features

  • Brazed, lugged steel frame - joining the tubes with lugs (cast steel sockets) then brazing them creates a strong reinforced frame that happens to look brilliant too
  • Long-raked steel fork with tubular crown
  • Sturmey Archer 5-speed hub gears for clean, dependable, low maintenance gear shifts
  • Full chaincase prevents your trouser cuffs getting caught in the chain
  • Skirt guard keeps skirt out of the rear spokes
  • Dynohub-driven headlamp is always there, never requires batteries
  • Sturmey Archer hub brakes are oblivious to the weather
  • Integral 'Dutch' frame fit lock demobilises the bike while you nip into the shops
  • Brooks B66 sprung leather saddle
  • Gold-lined mudguards
  • Schwalbe Marathon Plus 26" tyres - the most puncture resistant we've ever tested.
  • Rear LED light, alloy rack and kickstand

Pashley Sovereign Size Guide

The sizing below is a guide only, so please get in touch if you're unsure or between sizes. Height is in feet and inches. 

The frame size in inches is the distance between the centrepoint of the cycle's bottom bracket (where the pedal arm extends from) and the top of the frame's seat tube (where the seatpost enters the frame).

  • 17.5 Inch Frame: 27.5 - 31.5 inch inside leg
  • 20 Inch Frame: 30 - 34 inch inside leg
  • 22.5 Inch Frame: 32.5 - 36.5 inch inside leg

Pashley Bicycles

Pashley bicycles are handbuilt in Stratford-upon-Avon, as they have been since at least 1926. That's amazing when you consider that famous British brands such as Raleigh, Dawes and Claud Butler no longer manufacture a single bike in the UK. If you are uneasy about globalization and would prefer to buy local, consider a Pashley.
