Product Description

Stylish cruising on the Pashley Roadster Classic 26 hybrid classic bike. The frame is hand-built in the same factory, using the same techniques for nearly 100 years, and uses steel for its comfortable and robust qualities. The Sturmey Archer 3 speed hub gears delivers well-spaced gearing, making sure you’re comfortable riding around the streets and countryside. Full-length mudguards, a rear rack and stand, and large bell make sure you have all the riding convenience you need.

  • Sturmey Archer all weather, low maintenance hub brakes

  • Colours: Buckingham Black, Regency Green
  • The Pashley Roadster Classic 26 is available with 0% APR finance

Known as the ‘King of the Road’, the Roadster has a well-deserved reputation as a classic thoroughbred. Originally designed to handle the cobblestones that were once common across Britain and the roughest of country tracks, the traditional 28 inch wheels are paired with a double-sprung Brooks B33 leather saddle that lets you glide effortlessly over all terrains in the utmost comfort.

The regal riding position afforded by the classic swept-back handlebars and the relaxed frame geometry makes the Roadster the perfect bicycle for all manner of journeys, whether you commute across town every day or fancy weekend jaunts into the beautiful British countryside. Hop-up onto the Roadster and it becomes clear that the refined elegance of this machine is far more than skin deep. A fully-enclosed chaincase and matching mudguards keep you dry and clean as you glide along, whilst the addition of a coat guard on the rear wheel prevents any mishaps that could otherwise spoil the experience of riding the ‘King’.

You even have the choice of two distinct models: the Roadster Classic, with reliable 3 speed hub gears for a simpler and lighter bicycle, or the Sovereign, with the full complement of 5 wide-ratio hub gears, a handy frame-fitted lock and a front dynamo headlamp that never needs batteries. Whichever you choose, you can be assured that your Roadster will give you years of reliable and, most importantly, pleasurable riding wherever you go.

Classic geometry with elegant upright riding position: Comfortable 'sit up and beg' style 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. With a long stable wheelbase and relaxed steering geometry. 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.

Classic 3 speed hub gears: With a traditional easy-to-use thumb gear lever, they allow you to glide along flatter terrain with ease and climb inclines at a gentle pace. Fully enclosed gear system that requires minimal maintenance.

Reflectors for added visibility: front, rear, and pedal 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.

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

Rear carrier with easy flip-down stand: a rear carrier with an integrated stand that can be folded down to provide a sturdy parking base for your Roadster.

Protective coatguard: helps to prevent your gentlemanly attire from catching in the rear wheel.

Traditional Brooks B33 leather sprung saddle: Classically sprung, it's the only Brooks model to still feature front loop springs; its strength and durability make it ideal for heavy-duty cycling. The leather allows the saddle to breathe and form to your shape over time becoming uniquely comfortable. With handy rear luggage loops.

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.

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

Classic tyres with puncture protection: With robust, densely-woven carcass' that offer great puncture resistance, but using a fabric that needs less rubber coating and thus has a reduced weight. An inner Kevlar Guard belt provides additional puncture protection.

    Pashley roadster

    I was looking for a bike a bit different from the norm, I choose the Pashley light roadster. The reasons I choose it , it's British, hand built to order the way they used to make them, it's a traditional bicycle with a proper saddle, it's heavy,slow, the brakes slow you down gracefully and silently, it rides so smoothly and I love it. I would recommend to anyone.

    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.
