    Pashley Guv'nor

    I was browsing the Pashley site trying to find out if they have any U.S. Distributors for their Ice Cream Trikes, when I saw this. DAMN! Now I really wish they had a U.S. Distributor. Not exactly affordable, but a 1930s styled path racer with 531 tubes? Nifty!

    I think it looks awesome, but I honestly can't think of a time that's I'd ride it. Maybe it'd sub out for my SS MTB on lazy runs to the coffeeshop.

    Give it a Wald on the back, and it'd be great for a rails-to-trails trip.

    It's a very nifty bike with seriously Old timey slack geometry. It's very suitable for rough pavement and dirt roads, but then so's my MTB.

    Yeah I can't really think when I would ride it either, but that's not the point. It's PURTY! Check the fork crown and seat stays.

    I really want the Classic 33. I wanna ride around town all summer ringing my bell and selling ice cream to packs of kids who will chase me down the road when they hear me coming. Screw romanticizing messengers I romanticize ice cream men!

    The two plans I have for bikes are:

    1.) 80's road bike. I don't want a new one. I can be just as fast/get just as good of a workout on an old one, plus I'm not racing. I'm looking for a frame for this now.

    2.) Ultra-slack townie/cruiser-- my basic idea is exactly what is going on on this bike.

    We bought the bike below to use for a mobile tea service in our town. It's awesome, though not as awesome as the Pashley. Incidentally, I love the Guvnor too, and also their limited edition balloon tyre bike.

    Each and every imageinable kind. The missus placed our first order yesterday - around $800 worth of tea, something like 30 types (to start with)

    Oh that is sooooooo lovely. It looks a lot like my own English 'Wearwell' fixed gear Club bicycle; - though my 'Wearwell' is an early 1950s bicycle and not from the 1930s.

    If I were taking a ride to buy tea from a bicycle vendor, I'd take the Pashley Guv'nor.

    I get nostalgic about the area I used to live where Mexicans sold fresh mangos or melon, tamarind and watermelon juice from their bikes. Oh man, nothing better after a sweaty ride home.

    Well boutique coffee houses crossed the pond and came here, so I don't see why we shouldn't export the Tea Tricycle franchise. Today, Southampton, tomorrow the world......

    Hi,
    I will have the Classic 33's as well as the Guv'nor's available in the USA in two weeks. Just in time for Ice Cream weather. Belmont Distribution - www.belmontdistribution.com is my company and I am an importer of Pashley Cycles. My plan was to fill a 33 up with rocket pops and drumsticks as well.

    I'm very seriously considering one of these now. They look good quality, have nice custom options, and the price is good.

    Sammyboy, how much does that thing go for. I'm about to pull the trigger on a Haley Trike, but I'm wanting to compare what else is out there. I can't find anything nearly as nice for the money ($930 base) Worksman Trikes are close in price, but they've got just a rear coaster brake which makes them fairly useless for anything but the flattest of the flat. I shudder to think what it's like to try to stop 500 lbs of bike cargo and rider with just one coaster brake in the back I also like the fact that the Haley uses standard 26" bike wheels.

    21 speeds, two brakes, easy to find(in the recumbent world) 16 front wheel(with 110 PSI 2 inch tire!), super low center of gravity, and TWO wheels so it actually rides like a bicycle.

    Its a slimmed down roadster. Its the classic style of bicycle suitable for use in the countryside but here Pashley was seeking to save weight in both its design and construction. This is not a typical road bike. Just the opposite.

    Apparently they DO have a US distributor, in Phoenix.
