Fran's Friday Five

This week I have been liking...

The Pashley Briton

The new Pashley Briton arrived in-store this week and I took it for a test ride as I do with all new models. I was pleased to find that Pashley have managed to make a cycle with an even more relaxed riding position that the Roadster. 


Brooks B33 in Honey

Originally designed in 1938, the Brooks B33 is the daddy of all saddles. Its gently undulating ride will bring to mind bouncing on your grandma's bed as a child.

Alex Moulton From Bristol to Bradford on Avon - a lifetime in engineering

I've been reading Alex Moulton's autobiography this week with a view to selling it in the shop. It's a fascinating account of his life and career including his aeronautical, automotive and of course, his bicycle work.


Jack White - Connected By Love

This has been my constant and uplifting companion this week whilst working in the workshop.

Grand Designs guest stars

I was watching an old episode of Grand Designs on TV and what should pop up during the grand reveal of the modernist pad but a Pashley Roadster and matching Princess.
