The undisputed ‘King of the Road’, this imposing gentlemen’s bicycle offers an unsurpassed ride thanks to its sturdy 28-inch wheels and regal riding position. Ideal for country jaunts, the Roadster Sovereign transports the rider to a more relaxed age using the finest low-maintenance componentry and hand-built quality.
Hop up onto the Roadster and it becomes clear that the refined elegance of this machine is far more than skin deep. A fully-enclosed chaincase and matching mudguards keep you dry and clean as you glide along, whilst the addition of a coat guard on the rear wheel prevents any mishaps that could otherwise spoil the riding experience.
The Roadster Sovereign's full complement of 5 wide-ratio hub gears, a handy frame-fitted lock and a front dynamo headlamp that never needs batteries ensure you enjoy years of reliable and, most importantly, pleasurable riding wherever you go.
Demand has been high and the 22.5" variant of this model is currently sold out. However, new bicycles are due for delivery to Blackwell and Sons in September. We recommend reserving yours in advance to avoid disappointment.
