    Nice badge Alan. It seems best framed on the more regal 22.5 inch Pashley, a bit cramped on the 20.5. Often, I find the proportion and “composition” of a classic relaxed steel frame to be strongly influenced by the frame’s “face”– the length of the head tube between the intersection of the top and down tubes.

    I’m unfortunately a bit short in the leg and generally end up on a frame without much face, and character. How tall are you to be comfortably on the 22.5 inch Pashley Roadster sitting atop those big 28 inchers?

    Pashley makes the bikes used by Britain’s Royal Post … except the Post last week decided to get the delivery people off bikes.

    Seems they’ve calculated a savings of some kind by putting the delivery folks in machines — fewer postmen and postwomen can cover a larger area.

    Too bad for Britain and too bad for Pashley. That’s got to hurt.

    @Rider:

    Didn’t UPS make the opposite conclusion recently (at least for some deliveries)?

    I’m 6’0″ and have just enough clearance. It’s a BIG bike.

    Yeah, that’s an awful shame that Britain’s Royal Post is taking a huge step in the wrong direction at precisely the wrong time.
