Product Description

Pashley Roadster Sovereign

If you want to ride tall in the saddle and enjoy the view, this is the vehicle for you.

  • 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 and coat guard helps keep loose clothing clean and safe.
  • 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 B33 leather saddle with spiral-wound rear springs and looped front spring - prototype rear suspension.
  • Gold-lined mudguards.
  • Schwalbe Marathon Plus 28" tyres.
  • Rear LED light.
  • Sturdy rear stand.
  • Pashley's recommended sizing: 20.5 inch frame suits 30- 34.5 inch inside leg; 22.5 inch frame suits 33.5-38 inch inside leg; 24.5 inch frame suits 35-39.5 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.

    Sometimes you have to wait for the good things in life.

    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.
