If you like to ride gravel rather than race on it… | Singletrack Magazine Forum

Got one last year for Mrs R, turns out I ride it more than her for going round to the shops etc. As above, heavy but loads of fun and a very smooth ride because of the flex.

I’m 6′ with 34″ inside leg if that helps, she’s 5’7″ and it’s fine for both of us. Even got a basket on the front for carrying the newspaper! Would be a bit crap off-road though, things bounce out too easily. 🙂

I`ve got one, very cool indeed, you sit perfectly upright, quite heavy tho so hills are a bit of a bugger, best for smooth flat cruising.

Bought mine from Velorution in central London, they let you have a go first too which is nice.

I love mine in fact Im just off for a circuit of Bushy park on it now.

I was a bit surprised so few seemed to like this bike, then I realised it was the sort of bike that was common when I was young, so while its appearance is “right” to me, it’s all wrong to later generations.

To me it’s an evolution of the British sporting roadster, which was the do it all bike in my day. The quality of the good brands was superb and the bikes could be ridden for tens of thousands of miles with very few problems.

But some of the comments about 3 speed hubbed bikes may be based on misconceptions.

For the benefit of those who have never owned a Sturmey-Archer hub bike, the hub does not make the bike “slow”, it just means it’s not likely to be ideal if you want to ride in a peleton.

A few generations ago it was a good choice if you wanted to knock off 200 miles daily for over a year. (Google Tommy Godwin) If a bike is slow, it’s not the hub holding the bike back, that’s down to the rider.

My 3 speed with upright bars has done a few 125 mile audax distances comfortably within audax pace without trying hard, and also climbs hills quite well. It is regularly ridden in what many would consider mtb territory. The pic up there is it on part of the HT550 route from Erchless to Orrin dam, which as anyone who has ridden it knows, has some parts that are hard work on any bike.

That’s why I thought the Pashley would make a decent gravel bike, a bike for getting to the scenery rather than cxing through it.

Maybe someone needs to take one for a test thrash on a good long distance gravel route. I’d volunteer. 🙂



….And proper brakes since the lanes are steep on the way down too.

I like the feel of winding a bike out too, so I know what you mean. It’s pretty hard to beat.

The number of gears is a personal preference, and the 3 speed hub is well proven, but I am surprised that Pashley didn’t offer the 5 speed hub with its wider range.

I find the problem on steep gravel isn’t usually gearing, but traction. That’s the limitation on my 3 speed Pompino with 38mm tyres when I hit the steep stuff. I haven’t ridden in your neck of the woods but there’s some reasonably steep stuff up here north of the Cairngorms.*

I use the same drum brakes on the bike I usually race in the StrathPuffer. They are perfectly adequate for the job, and have very nice modulation, and that is an advantage for descending on steep loose gravel. I haven’t found anything I’m prepared to ride down where the brakes are a limitation.

Like most cable brakes, how good they are really depends on the quality of the levers and cables used. Sort that out, and they are perfectly ok..

*Ironically our local group of Rod-brake Roadster Randonneurs have settled on the Cairngorms to get a decently long gravel loop because it’s not too steep for some of the

I’ve got one and planning on selling it (TBH if you offer me a crate of nice beer I’ll take the swap).

Ridelow 24″ lowrider, think it was a one off imported by ridelow, originally owned by Ged “the head” (MTB/BMX legend and Brooklyn importer)

looks a bit like this, but with solid tripple clamp forks (because steering accuracy matters with a 30deg head angle) and 24″ wheels.

<img src="data:image/svg xml,» alt=»» title=»» class=»bbcode-image» data-lazy-src=»×550.jpg»>

Your’s for 24 bottles of nice microbrewery beer (seems fitting seeing as I bought it while drunk)

As my friend says, we have a Princess Sovereign for sale. My wife also really likes it and has used it with the trailerbike with the children. We bought it for that purpose but the school run has changed and it is now not getting the use it should, we were also using it for trundles out but we have tended to go mountain biking more was well.

As for weight my wife is 5’1″ and 50kg wet through. Her other bikes are a Soda at under 22lb and a Look racer, she has no problem with the Pashley even on the hills with the trailer bike, it just rides and rolls really nicely, I do agree though if you have to lift it up onto car roofs or carry it anywhere, not good for that!

We’re looking for about £450 . its the 17″ model in Buckingham green. It was very hard to get hold of I know that the back order was 3 months.

email in profile if you’re interested but I’ll be putting it on ebay if no interest on here.
