Pashley Guvnor : A revival of one of Pashley’s oldest designs, the 1930s Path Racer, but updated to cope with the demands of modern life. Legendary Reynolds 531 steel is used by our craftsmen to produce a frame with a classic slack geometry. Which provides you a dynamic yet natural riding position aided by the inclusion of authentic North Road handlebars.
Pashley Guvnor is not only a unique Cycle in its ride quality but in its aesthetic, exuding an elegance that hearkens back to the simple beauty of the original design. From the gold-lined black alloy Westwood rims to the Brooks B17 leather saddle that has graced the best racing cycles for over 100 years.
Every aspect of the Guvnor has been carefully selected to evoke the glory of path racing history. Add to this the benefits of Sturmey Archer hub brakes, enclosed to be reliable in all weathers, and puncture-resistant Schwalbe tires and the Guv’nor becomes the epitome of refined British road cycling with the very best componentry.
