The Princess is the epitome of the classic English cycling tradition. Its timeless looks and upright riding position hearkens back to a simpler time of relaxed trips into town, tranquil jaunts into the countryside and an altogether more peaceful style of cycling.

A sense of refinement and elegance runs through every aspect of the Princess. It is fitted with a combination of beautifully enamelled, hand-lined mudguards and rear skirtguards to keep you dry whilst preventing any mishaps as you glide through your surroundings. Also included is a full chaincase, which protects you from any unsightly grease marks and reduces any maintenance your bicycle may need. The Princess therefore represents the perfect marriage of beauty and practicality, making owning and riding this cycle the utmost pleasure.

You have the choice of two distinct models: the Classic with reliable 3 speed hub gears for a simpler and lighter bicycle, or the Princess Sovereign, with the full complement of 5 or 8 wide-ratio hub gears, a handy frame-fitted lock, a versatile rear luggage rack and a front dynamo headlamp that never needs batteries.

The styling of the Princess has been used at Pashley since our very earliest days in the 1920s, and as a result it is plain to see that the design has stood the test of time. The combination of this classic reliability with hand-built quality and the very best modern components makes the Princess an unrivalled cycling experience that will charm you with years of comfort, dependability and joy.

Classic step-over frame design with elegant upright riding position: an easy to mount/dismount frame with comfortable upright riding position that allows you a good view of other road users and the scenery, and the added bonus of encouraging a healthy posture. The frame is hand-built using 100 year old traditional methods - with tubing hand-brazed into lugs - for the attention to detail that only a frame crafted by hand can possess.

Large 'ding-dong' bell: lovely and loud, announce your arrival with Pashley’s splendid ‘ding-dong’ bell.

5 or 8 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.

Classic wicker basket: this iconic basket sits elegantly on the front of your bicycle and is just the right size for your daily food shop, picnics or even a small dog!

Classic front lamp and rear LED light: a fully-fitted lighting set offers added safety with a dynamo powered classic headlamp - no batteries needed - and a high-visibility rear LED light.

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

Traditional style mudguards: with beautiful hand-applied gold-line detail, they protect you from unsightly mud splashes, providing all-weather practicality.

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

Versatile rear carrier: a strong and durable alloy rack with an 'easy-fix' system that allows for quick-release/attachment of Pletscher branded luggage or child seats.

Protective skirtguard: helps to prevent flowing attire from entangling in the rear wheel.

Traditional Brooks B66s sprung leather saddle: One of Brook's most loved saddles, it's classically sprung with double support rails for supreme comfort. The ideal all-rounder for daily city or touring use in an upright riding posture. The leather allows the saddle to breathe and form to your shape over time becoming uniquely comfortable. With handy rear luggage loops.

Convenient frame-fitted lock: secure the bicycle, through the rear wheel, with the simple push of a lever and key-turn, giving security and peace of mind without the need to carry a separate bike lock.

Classic frame-fitted pump: a traditional design in highly polished chrome, it fits securely to the cycle frame via integrated pump-pegs; easily at-hand when your tyres need an extra top-up of air.

Easy-to-park propstand: a sturdy ‘kick-down’ propstand allows you to stand your bicycle upright with ease.

Fully-enclosed protective chaincase: protects you from greasy oil marks and helps to reduce wear on the chain from grit and water.

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 offer extra visibility after darkness.

Hybrid Bikes Guide

What is a Hybrid bike?

With fast rolling 700c wheels and flat handlebars hybrid bikes bridge the gap between road and mountain bikes. They are great all-rounders.

What type of hybrid bike do I need?

Hybrid classic bikes

With an emphasis on comfort and practicality, hybrid classic bikes combine the looks of a traditional bicycle with modern components. The upright riding position makes them easy to ride as well as being comfortable. Often ready fitted with mudguards, racks and even baskets on the front, these are great bikes for gentle rides around town.

Hybrid sports bikes

Faster and more efficient than the classic hybrids, these are ideal for fitness training and commuting. There are two main types of hybrid sports bikes that can be defined by their fork.

  • With a suspension fork – These bikes are robust and are designed for riding both on and off road. The suspension fork helps to smooth out rough tracks and the tyres, being slightly wider, offer a little more cushioning as well as improving grip on loose surfaces.

  • With a rigid fork – Designed specifically for road riding these are the fastest hybrid bikes and are ideal for urban riding. Tyres tend to be narrower so they roll quicker on smooth surfaces.

What are the frames made of?

Aluminium alloy- These are strong, lightweight and are found on most hybrid bikes. More expensive hybrids tend to have lighter ‘butted’ frames.

Steel – These frames are heavier but offer a smoother ride.

What gearing options are there?

Derailleur gears

Most hybrid sports bikes and many hybrid classic bikes feature mountain bike derailleur gears. With triple chain rings on the front and 7 – 11 cogs on the rear cassette these offer a wide range of gear options so you can cycle up steep hills as well as power along the flat.

Hub gears

More common on hybrid classic bikes hub gears require less maintenance tend to be more reliable than derailleur gears. 3 speed hub gears offer a limited range so are best for fairly flat riding. 7 and 8 speed hub gears offer a wider range so you can take on the climbs.

Which are the best brakes?

Rim brakes – mountain bike style V-brakes are powerful in the dry but less powerful in the wet.

Disc brakes – these are powerful in all conditions.

Hydraulic disc brakes – these offer increased power and braking precision in all conditions.

Can I fit mudguards and a rack?

Yes. All hybrid bikes have lugs on the frame and fork for easy fitting of mudguards and racks.
