Pashley Britannia 8spd Blue Information

Season : 2017

Brand : Pashley

Code : PashBri8bl

Available in a range of patriotic colours, it is a fun and beautiful way to explore the countryside on weekend adventures or even just nip around town, filling the classic wicker basket with your shopping as you go.

In true British fashion, the Britannia is suited to all sorts of weather, with the chainguard and mudguards keeping you clean and looking your best, whilst the reliable hub brakes and gears are effective no matter what the conditions. Based upon the model we have produced from our very earliest days in the 1920s, the curved frame is coupled with a classic sweeping handlebar to give you an elegant upright seated position that lets you glide along through the countryside in comfort. This comfort is enhanced by the inclusion of a hand-made Brooks B66S saddle - made only thirty miles from our factory here in Stratford-upon-Avon - which gradually shapes to your form to become a truly customised and supportive seat. A front dynamo headlamp completes this luxurious lineup, never needing batteries to keep you safe at night.

All this is brought together with our long-earned experience and British craftsmanship, making the Britannia a gorgeous and reliable bicycle equipped to be a lifelong companion.

Sizing Information

Sizing Guide

Pashley’s cycles come in a variety of frame sizes. To select the correct frame size for you, first measure your inside leg length (from the sole of your foot to the inner top of your thigh) in inches. Then, use the table below to find the frame size you will need. 

Frame sizes are shown in bold followed by the corresponding inside-leg length range:  

Cycle Size 1 Size 2 Size 3 Size 4 Size 5
Princess / Britannia / Sonnet / Poppy 17.5" = 27.5 - 31.5" 20" = 30 - 34" 22" = 32 - 36"    
Guv'nor 20" = 27 - 31" 20.5" = 29 - 33.5" 22.5" = 31 - 35.5" 24.5" = 33 - 37.5"  
Speed 5 / Speed 3 20.5" = 29 - 33.5" 22.5" = 31 - 35.5" 24.5" = 33 - 37.5"    
Roadster 20.5" = 30 - 34.5" 22.5" = 32 - 36.5" 24.5" = 34 - 38.5"    
Roadster 26 20" = 27 - 31"        
Roadfinder 48cm = 28 - 31" 50cm = 29 - 32" 53cm = 30.5 - 33" 56cm = 31.5 - 34" 59cm = 32.5 - 35"
Pathfinder 50cm = 29 - 32" 53cm = 30.5 - 33" 56cm = 31.5 - 34" 59cm = 32.5 - 35"  
Clubman / Countryman 20" = 27 - 32" 21.5" = 28.5 - 33.5" 23" = 30 - 35" 24.5" = 31.5 - 36.5"  
Aurora 18" = 27 - 31" 20" = 30 - 34" 22" = 33 - 37"    
Parabike / Penny / Tube Rider 19" = 28 - 34"        
Picador / Tri-1 15" = 25.5 - 32.5" 17" = 27.5 - 35.5"      
Pickle Child's = 17 - 20.5"        
Robin Child's = 16 - 22"        

 

Please note that your inside leg length may fall in-between two frame sizes. If so, you may wish to choose the larger frame size if you have relatively long legs for your height and the smaller frame size if you have relatively short legs for your height.

The frame size in inches is the distance between the centrepoint of the cycle's bottom bracket (where the pedal arm extends from) and the top of the frame's seat tube (where the seatpost enters the frame).
 

Saddle and Handlebar Position

All models have easy seat height adjustment, with some fore and aft movement and angle adjustment for fine tuning your riding position. The saddle should ideally sit level or be slightly tilted downwards and the height should be set so that, with the pedal at its lowest position and the ball of your foot (in normal shoes) on the pedal, your leg is very slightly bent. If you then place your heel on the pedal, your leg should be straight. On step-over frame models (e.g. the Princess) you should be able to ‘put a foot down’ when you stop, whilst on leg-over frame models (e.g. the Roadster), as they are built to a traditional pattern with a high bottom bracket, you will need to slip off the saddle when you come to a halt.

Your cycle’s handlebar can be raised and lowered, and also canted to give the most comfortable riding position. If a shorter reach is required, the handlebar stem can be reversed bringing the handlebar much closer to the rider.

Due to variations in riding styles and cycle usage patterns, any stated bicycle weight limit is somewhat subjective. However, we are legally obliged to provide weight limits for our cycles; please find these in the table below:
