Note: Pashley bikes are hand-built to order & have long dispatch dates
It’s hard not to love the timeless styling of the Pashley Sonnet 28 Bliss Womens hybrid classic bike. The hand made frame is comfortable and give an easy, upright riding position. For city convenience, the rear rack and front basket allow you to carry essentials, while the mudguards and chainguard keep you clean even in the rain. A light-set makes sure you’re well seen in traffic, making it a great commuter. For the ideal gearing in town, an easy maintenance Sturney Archer 5 speed hub gear is used.
Just like our classic Princess, the Sonnet hearkens back to the early days of cycling, when elegance and pleasure took precedent over speed or competition. With the Sonnet, we have taken this tradition to celebrate our roots in the 1920s and 30s - the beautiful two-tone colour schemes are a nod to the inimitable style of this period. Such a unique look combines with the beauty of our curved frame design to make the Sonnet the eye-catching pinnacle of cycling chic.
Only the very best will do for such a wonderful aesthetic, and this is reflected in the high end components fitted by our team of committed craftsmen. The Brooks leather saddle has springs to ease your journey and over time becomes shaped to your form, whilst the classic wicker basket is perfect for trips to the shops or even your daily commute.
There are two distinct versions of the Sonnet to meet your exacting needs: The Pure is the simpler and lighter model, with reliable 3 speed hub gears that are perfect for everyday riding, whereas the Sonnet Bliss comes fully-equipped with luxuries such as 5 seed hub gears for all terrains, a handy built-in lock and a front dynamo headlamp to keep you safe at night without the need for batteries. Whichever you choose, the Sonnet is the embodiment of the refinement and class of a bygone age, and will transport you to a world of uncomplicated riding pleasure that is so very rare in our hectic modern world.
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.
