Pashley Princess Sovereign 5sp Green Information

Season : 2017

Brand : Pashley

Code : PashPS5Grn

A sense of refinement and elegance runs through every aspect of the Princess. It is fitted with a combination of beautifully enamelled, hand-lined mudguards and rear skirtguards to keep you dry whilst preventing any mishaps as you glide through your surroundings. Also included is a full chaincase, which protects you from any unsightly grease marks and reduces any maintenance your bicycle may need. The Princess therefore represents the perfect marriage of beauty and practicality, making owning and riding this cycle the utmost pleasure. 

You have the choice of two distinct models: the Classic with reliable 3 speed hub gears for a simpler and lighter bicycle, or the Princess Sovereign, with the full complement of 5 or 8 wide-ratio hub gears, a handy frame-fitted lock, a versatile rear luggage rack and a front dynamo headlamp that never needs batteries. 

The styling of the Princess has been used at Pashley since our very earliest days in the 1920s, and as a result it is plain to see that the design has stood the test of time. The combination of this classic reliability with hand-built quality and the very best modern components makes the Princess an unrivalled cycling experience that will charm you with years of comfort, dependability and joy.

  1. Classic step-over frame design with elegant upright riding position: an easy to mount/dismount frame with comfortable upright riding position that allows you a good view of other road users and the scenery, and the added bonus of encouraging a healthy posture. The frame is hand-built using 100 year old traditional methods - with tubing hand-brazed into lugs - for the attention to detail that only a frame crafted by hand can possess.
  2. Large 'ding-dong' bell: lovely and loud, announce your arrival with Pashley’s splendid ‘ding-dong’ bell.
  3. 5 or 8 speed hub gears: With an easy-shift gear lever, they allow you to tackle hills and glide along gracefully on flatter terrain with ease. Fully enclosed gear system that requires minimal maintenance.
  4. Classic wicker basket: this iconic basket sits elegantly on the front of your bicycle and is just the right size for your daily food shop, picnics or even a small dog!
  5. Classic front lamp and rear LED light: a fully-fitted lighting set offers added safety with a dynamo powered classic headlamp - no batteries needed - and a high-visibility rear LED light.
  6. Low maintenance hub brakes and gears: enclosed and sealed from all weathers, hub brakes and gears are long-lasting and robust and provide excellent stopping power come rain or shine.
  7. Traditional style mudguards: with beautiful hand-applied gold-line detail, they protect you from unsightly mud splashes, providing all-weather practicality.
  8. Reflectors for added visibility: front, rear, pedal and tyre reflectors all help to keep you safer on the road at night.
  9. Versatile rear carrier: a strong and durable alloy rack with an 'easy-fix' system that allows for quick-release/attachment of Pletscher branded luggage or child seats.
  10. Protective skirtguard: helps to prevent flowing attire from entangling in the rear wheel.
  11. Traditional Brooks B66s sprung leather saddle: One of Brook's most loved saddles, it's classically sprung with double support rails for supreme comfort. The ideal all-rounder for daily city or touring use in an upright riding posture. The leather allows the saddle to breathe and form to your shape over time becoming uniquely comfortable. With handy rear luggage loops.
  12. Convenient frame-fitted lock: secure the bicycle, through the rear wheel, with the simple push of a lever and key-turn, giving security and peace of mind without the need to carry a separate bike lock.
  13. Classic frame-fitted pump: a traditional design in highly polished chrome, it fits securely to the cycle frame via integrated pump-pegs; easily at-hand when your tyres need an extra top-up of air.
  14. Easy-to-park propstand: a sturdy ‘kick-down’ propstand allows you to stand your bicycle upright with ease.
  15. Fully-enclosed protective chaincase: protects you from greasy oil marks and helps to reduce wear on the chain from grit and water.
  16. Robust tyres with extra puncture protection and reflective side-walls: Hard-wearing tyres with secure tread design and an inner SmartGuard layer made from a flexible, special rubber that offers extra resistance to shards of glass and pins. A reflective band around the circumference of the tyre walls provide extra visibility after darkness.

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.
