For Sale: Pashley Roadster Sovereign

I mentioned it in passing a while back, but I wanted to make an official announcement that my Pashley is for sale. The size is 22.5″ which is appropriate for riders with a 33.5″ — 38″ inside leg measurement. It was purchased in May of last year and religiously maintained. Those who know me know that I baby my bikes, and the Pashley was no exception.

The bike can be seen and test ridden at Gold Country Cyclery in Shingle Springs, CA. I’m asking $950 (retail is $1595). I’d be happy to answer any questions you have, or contact Rick Steele at Gold Country if you’d like to set-up a test ride. —Alan

Please note: The Roadster that’s for sale is the diamond frame shown in the photos. The step-thru is a Princess and it’s not for sale. The price includes everything except the bags.

    Can you really adjust the seat up high enough to accommodate a 38″ inseam? Is that because of the slack seat tube angle that gives it a semi-crank forward position? I guess it has a pretty long seat post.

    Hi, is the bike still available? I might make a trip up from the Bay Area just to try it out. :)

    I like the bike and am seriously considering buying it. Only problem is I am in Calgary, AB, Canada and need to know if you can ship, and at what cost.

    Dear Alan,
    thanks a lot for the very quick response! I would love to have the Sovereign right now in my hands, instead of waiting for at least one month! I hope it is worth waiting.
    Both Basil and Nigel Smythe bags are wonderful. Any ideas of how i can purchase Nigel Smythe bags in Europe?

    Kind regards,

    This is sold I suppose?

  • Alan says:

    Hi Seth,

    Yes, it sold a while ago. Thanks for asking.


  • Amoeba says:

    Would you mind elaborating on your reason for selling the Pashley?

  • Alan says:


    The combination of the weight, the limited gearing, and the shallow seat angle ended up being a little hard on my bad knee, otherwise it was a fun bike.
