Update from Santa: Don’t get caught out this holiday season!
If you’ve been good, Santa might deliver your Pashley himself this Christmas…but we don’t think even he will manage to get it into your stocking!
Pashley is England’s longest established manufacturer of hand-built bicycles. Every Pashley cycle is hand-crafted in the town of Stratford-upon-Avon
The cycles are traditionally hand-built by our dedicated team of skilled brazers and assemblers, who use traditional methods to create work of the highest standard and an attention to detail that only a frame crafted by hand can possess.
Brooks Saddles: With a heritage spanning back to 1882, the Brooks saddle continues to be the ‘Rolls-Royce’ of saddles. Made from the finest materials, their designs form to your shape over time becoming uniquely yours, and with many featuring additional ‘bump’ absorbing springs, they offer a supremely comfortable ride.
Sturmey Archer Hub Gears: Although manufacture has now moved overseas from Nottingham, Sturmey remains the original British-designed hub gearing system, first patented in 1902 by Henry Sturmey. The majority of Pashley Cycles continue to be fitted with the latest versions of these enclosed hub gears, which have proven record for reliability and low-maintenance in all-weathers (particularly British weather!).
Reynolds 531 Steel: The original British ‘standard of excellence’ in frame building, Reynolds tubing is used for many Pashley cycle frames for its high-strength yet lightweight qualities. Although steel is sometimes regarded as ‘old-fashioned’, it is actually an excellent material for building bicycle frames. High tensile steel has a far greater ultimate strength and stiffness value than aluminium or titanium alloy. Steel responds well in fatigue conditions, and is able to withstand the repeated stress typically placed on a bicycle frame. Specifically, a steel cycle frame can impart a better ‘feel’ and ride comfort than its aluminium or titanium alloy equivalent.
