The Pashey Parabike is the epitome of reliable and stylish cycling. These bicycles accompanied Paratroopers dropped into occupied France, helping them ride around town and country on their vital missions.

In the city, the Brooks B67 saddle, mudguards and an upright yet dynamic riding position all make for an efficient and relaxed ride. Puncture proof Schwalbe tyres, 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 an awesome alternative to other modern hybrids, but carries Pashley's heritage and hand built quality.
