The Pashley Britannia is a colorful update of the classic Princess Sovereign model. In honor of it's British heritage it is available in red, white & blue. Like the Princess Sovereign it is a direct descendent of bicycles built by Pashley in the 1920s. The frames are crafted by hand in Pashley's Stratford-upon-Avon factory using the traditional construction of steel tubes brazed into lugs. The frame geometry is carried over from the original Pashley models. Even the wheel sizes are entirely authentic to the classic English bicycle.
The Britannia is built on a beautifully made classic upright English steel frame. The Brooks leather saddle softens as you use it and forms to your body shape. Matching fenders and chain guard keep your clothes clean and dry while riding in the city or the country. Swept-back handlebars keep you comfortably upright so you can enjoy the sights. A honey wicker basket with bottom support keeps your belongings in sight. Your pedaling powers the front headlight. A frame mounted air pump is always available to top off the tires no matter where you are. 5 speeds from the internal Sturmey Archer gear hub help you climb hills. The internal drum brakes last practically forever and work just as well in the rain and snow as they do on a sunny day.
All 3 sizes (SML, MED, LRG) and colors are usually in stock.
A full range of Pashley leather handlebar and saddle bags are also available.
