Pashley’s original 1930s Path Racer is reimagined for the 21st century in the extraordinary Guv’nor. True to its heritage, the Guv’nor is built with relaxed, elegant geometry using the legendary Reynolds 531 butted cycle tubing. This is a bicycle designed for the Renaissance Man.
From the gold limed black alloy Westwood rims to the Brooks B17 leather saddle that has graced the best racing cycles for over 100 years, every aspect of the Guv’nor has been carefully selected to evoke the glory of path racing history. Add to this the benefits of Sturmey Archer hub brakes, enclosed to be reliable in all weathers, and puncture-resistant Schwalbe tyres, and the Guv’nor becomes the epitome of refined British road cycling with the very best componentry.
The Guv’nor is a real head-turner that has the performance to match, and is guaranteed to give you years of riding and racing pleasure.
