    A classic thoroughbred the Pashley Roadster Sovereign combines traditional styling with modern components to offer an unrivalled ride experience. With its relaxed frame geometry and swept back bars the Roadster offers a stable upright riding position for comfortable cycling on even the roughest of roads.

    Hand-crafted in England the traditional steel frame is combined with modern quality components and offers an efficient and reliable ride. The Shimano Nexus 8 speed hub gears offer reliable, low maintenance gear shifting over a wide range of gears to get you up and over the hills. Hub brakes offer reliable stopping power in all weather conditions.

    The Brooks B33 leather sprung saddle is ideal for a bike of this calibre and adds comfort. Full length mudguards and chaincase will keep you clean while a rear rack will carry your luggage. A full light set is fitted ready for night riding and the front light is dynamo powered so you don’t need to change the batteries. Frame mounted pump, lock and swing down stand add practicality to this well thought out hybrid bike.

    Pashley Roadster Sovereign 8 (green)

    I took my new bike for its inaugural ride yesterday and was very pleased with its performance. It was smooth and quiet and comfortable to ride. Stopping and putting your feet down can be a bit tricky as the lower frame is higher from the ground than standard. There are lots of positives, but I would like to offer constructive advice on the negatives. On the end of the brake cables there is affixed a round metal disc that slots into the roller brake assembly. That can easily be inadvertently popped out as was the case yesterday when I was wheeling the bike past a bush along our garden path. If that had happened while I was cycling, I would have had no front brake. I suggest having a split (cotter) pin or a clip over that disc to prevent its coming out. (I'm very surprised there isn't one.) Also, I had difficulty engaging first gear (Shimano Nexus 8): it would only go to second, but after a while pedalling uphill it would "crunch" into first. It's probably the cable that needs adjusting - I'm going to have to have a "fiddle" to see if I can adjust it. A third point is the length of the handlebar grips: my hands aren't massive, but I found that another inch of grip would have proven more comfortable. I also have to get used to the slippery Brooks leather saddle as I was continually having to push myself back on it after sliding forward. (I may put a seat cover on it to increase the resistance.) And watch out for the hex wrench (allen key) that's required to remove the rear light lens (to change the batteries) as it seems to be an obscure size and not one of the ones included in the Tredz multi-tool that is supplied with the bike. Luckily, I had one in my own collection. (I needed to remove the lens because the little battery-enabling plastic pull-out tab snapped when I tugged it.) I understood the lamp was supposed to have a choice of flashing or constant, but I can't seem to determine how to select the flashing mode. Another suggestion would be to have rubber feet on the stand as the paint got abraded as soon as I used it, and when the stand is returned to the rack position you can see this abrasion which not only will attract rust, but detracts from its looks. I'll perhaps wrap some masking tape around the offending areas. Hopefully, some of these ideas will be incorporated into future designs. Those comments aside, the bike is a pleasure to ride and to look at - I already received one comment on its attractiveness during my "official launch." I'm looking forward to many more rides now I'm in my first month of retirement, but I will need that first gear to negotiate these Cornish hills!

    Lovely Bicycle

    I love this bike, but I can't begin to justify that statement rationally! It's ridiculously heavy, less aerodynamic that a brick and twice as energy sapping as my 'best' road bike (a Ti framed, Shimano Ultegra equipped 'racer'). But it's just fantastic fun to ride! The relatively wide gear range (with the Shimano Nexus 8 hub), the built in lock, the rack and the mudguards add some practicality, but there are lighter, better equipped Dutch style bikes available. I reckon the bottom line is that if you're hankering after this bike you'll love it for its looks, its upright position and its general presence. If you're tall enough to get the double top-tube version even better! Budget a few quid to change the horrible hard plastic grips (that look and feel as if they came off the child's Tricycle you had in 1970) to something better. Also consider how much you need to use the front light - it looks pretty but is next to useless as a light to see by (as opposed to be seen). Overall this is a bike to enjoy. Buy it with that as your main priority and I doubt you'll regret it! Great service from Tredz as well. I tried to buy this bike from 2 national chains who have branches local to me and neither were willing to help (despite being Pashley stockists) as this is a new model. Tredz kept me informed and delivered as promised.
