Product Description

A classically styled bike to enjoy your weekend rides with, the Pashley Parabike gives an upright riding position for easy-going riding. The Multi-tube frame is hand-built in Britain and delivers a comfortable ride, helped in no small way by the sprung leather Brooks saddle. To get moving, the low maintenance Sturmey Archer 5-speed hub gives ideal gearing for town and canal cruising.

Key Features:

  • Multi-tube hand-built frame with braze-ons for attachment of a rear carrier and bottle cage
  • Sturmey Archer XRD5 5-speed hub gearing offers easy riding
  • Sturmey Archer all-weather, low maintenance hub brakes are great stoppers
  • Brooks leather spring saddle offers superb comfort
  • Laid back handlebars give you an easy-going riding position
  • Sizes: 19”
  • Colours: Dusk Blue, Ash Green
  • The Pashley Parabike is available with 0% APR finance

The Parabike is the epitome of practical, reliable and stylish cycling, being as it is an evolution of the Airborne bicycles of the Second World War. These were carried by British paratroopers dropping into occupied France, who would use these cycles to get around both city and countryside on their important missions. It is this unique heritage that makes the Parabike the perfect companion in all aspects of your life, wherever you may wander.

For city rides, the Brooks B67 saddle, weather resistant mudguards and an upright yet dynamic riding position all make for an efficient and relaxed ride. The further addition of robust Schwalbe tyres with extra puncture protection, reliable Sturmey Archer hub brakes and wide-ratio 5 speed hub gears means you and your Parabike can head out of town on all sorts of adventures, safe in the knowledge that your bicycle can stand up to the rigours of even the most rural of rides.

The Parabike is therefore a wholly refreshing alternative to the modern hybrid bicycle and carries with it reassurance of a long-standing history of excellence, both in its military roots and the stamp of Pashley hand-built quality.

Sweeping multi-tube frame with relaxed riding position: Unique duplex-tube frame, giving a comfortable ride and unmistakable style. Features rear carrier and bottle cage mounts for additional retro-fit storage. Hand-built with an attention to detail that only a frame crafted by hand can possess.

Soft touch cork grips: with ergonomic shaping these soft-touch cork-compound grips give added comfort and secure handling whilst cycling.

Small 'ding-dong' bell: a dainty ding-dong bell which sounds an elegant little 'ding-dong' to politely let pedestrians know you are arriving.

Classic 5 speed hub Gears: With an easy-shift gear lever, they allow you to tackle hills and glide along gracefully on flatter terrain with ease. Fully enclosed gear system that requires minimal maintenance.

Reflectors for added visibility: front, rear, pedal and tyre reflectors all help to keep you safer on the road at night.

Low maintenance hub brakes and gears: enclosed and sealed from all weathers, hub brakes and gears are long-lasting and robust and provide excellent stopping power come rain or shine.

Corrosion resistant painted steel mudguards: withstanding the rough and bumps of everyday use, they protect you from mud and water splashes, giving all-weather practicality.

Traditional Brooks B67 aged sprung leather saddle: Aged natural leather saddle with elegant tie detailing. Ideal for country rides, absorbing the bumps as you go. Classically sprung for supreme comfort, the softer aged leather makes this saddle comfortable from day one and allows the saddle to breathe and form to your shape over time. With handy rear luggage loops.

Quick-release seatpost with saddle micro-adjustment: Allows saddle height to be adjusted and secured with ease and without the need for tools. Fine-tuning of the saddle position and angle can also be achieved for improved/individual comfort.

Protective chainguard: a streamlined chainguard that protects you from greasy oil marks, and helps prevent your attire from catching in the chain.

Robust tyres with extra puncture protection and reflective side-walls: Hard-wearing tyres with secure tread design and an inner SmartGuard layer made from a flexible, special rubber that offers extra resistance to shards of glass and pins. A reflective band around the circumference of the tyre walls provide extra visibility after darkness.

Parabike
by Jim W on 24/06/2017

A fantastic stylish bike in this world of lightweight mountain and road bikes. Very comfortable and smooth, only issue (very very annoying) is the "crank" noise as you peddle. Took the Chain guard off and problem solved (after trying to adjust it for hours) but spoils the look of the bike. Shame.

Hybrid Bikes Guide

 

Hybrid Bike Guide

A hybrid bike is a general-purpose bicycle, for cycling over a range of terrains with a mixture of road and mountain bike characteristics. Hybrid bikes will usually have flat handlebars similar to a mountain bike, but come with rapid rolling 700c road bike wheels. The flat handlebars offer a more upright riding position compared to that of a dropped handlebar road bike. This makes hybrids popular with commuters as they offer better visibility than a road bike when cycling in traffic, while the fast rolling 700c wheels mean they are quicker and more efficient than a mountain bike.

Hybrid bikes aren’t restricted to the road though. While the tyres are not as wide as mountain bikes, they are suitable for light off-roading on gravel tracks and canal towpaths. Hybrids also tend to have a wider gear range than road bikes making them easier to pedal up hill.


Are there different types of hybrid bikes?

Hybrid classic bikes

These look similar to traditional bicycles, and offer an upright, comfortable riding position. They are ideal for relaxed urban cycling as hybrid classic bikes are often supplied with chain and mudguards ready fitted.

Step through women’s bikes are very popular and may have both a basket and rack attached, making them perfect for trips to the shop or a picnic in the park.

Hybrid Bike Guide

Hybrid sports bikes

Hybrid sports bikes are more performance orientated and feature a riding position that has greater efficiency than a hybrid classic.

There are a variety of hybrid sports bikes available. Some will have wider tyres and a suspension fork up front to take the sting out of rough roads and tracks, while others will have narrower tyres and a rigid fork for smoother tarmac riding.

Hybrid Bike Guide

Should I buy a hybrid bike, a mountain bike or a road bike?

Off road only

For gravel tracks and forest roads then a hybrid sports bike with wider tyres and a suspension fork up front will be ideal. A mountain bike will be best if you intend to ride on technical off road trails and cross country tracks.

Hybrid Bike Guide

Mixture of on-road and off-road

A hybrid sports bike with wider tyres and a suspension fork up front will be ideal.

Hybrid Bike Guide

Urban roads

A hybrid sports bike with narrower tyres and a rigid fork is a good choice as it offers better visibility and easier handling than a road bike but will still be fast and efficient. Hybrid classic bikes are also ideal for more relaxed urban cycling.

Hybrid Bike Guide

Rural roads

A road bike will be faster and more efficient on quiet rural roads, especially on longer rides. Hybrid sports bikes are still suitable for riding on country roads if you value comfort over efficiency.

Hybrid Bike Guide

What to look for in a hybrid bike

Frame

Aluminium frames are lightweight and robust. Steel frames are heavier than aluminium but do offer a smoother ride. Carbon fibre is more expensive but provides the combination of a light frame and compliant ride.

Drivetrain

Most hybrids feature mountain bike style derailleur gears with a triple chainset upfront and a seven, eight, nine or 10 speed rear cassette.

This offers a wide range of gears with plenty of options at the lower end for easy climbing. Some higher end hybrid sports bikes will feature road bike style derailleur gears with a compact double chainset for faster riding.

While less common, hub gears offer the advantage of very low maintenance with the ability to change gear while stopped. Hybrid classic bikes tend to have a narrower range of gears suitable for lower intensity cycling on relatively flat terrain.

Saddles

With an upright riding position, more of your weight will go through the saddle. For this reason, hybrid classic bikes have wide saddles with plenty of padding. Too much padding can be a disadvantage with a more aggressive riding position, so hybrid sports bikes have narrower saddles with less support.

Forks

A suspension fork will help to smooth out the trails but does add weight. A rigid fork is ideal for efficient road riding.

Wheels and tyres

Nearly all hybrid bikes have 700c wheels but tyre width does vary. A narrower tyre (those with low numbers) will be faster while a wider tyre (those with higher numbers) will offer more comfort.

28c - 35c tyres- These tyres have a low rolling resistance and are ideal for road focused riding. The 28c tyres are typically found on high-end sports hybrids.

35c - 40c tyres - These are often combined with chunky tread and are found on hybrids with a suspension fork. They are suitable for riding on both road and trail surfaces.

40c – 50c tyres - Providing increased cushioning for a more comfortable ride these are found on hybrid classic bikes, where comfort is more important than speed.

Mudguards and racks

While all hybrid bikes are compatible with mudguards and racks, fitting them can sometimes be tricky. Fortunately many hybrids come with mudguards ready fitted and this is the best option if you know you require them before you buy.
