The Clubman is the epitome of the club cycling tradition firmly rooted in British sporting culture. In the heyday of this noble pastime, one bicycle would be used for many purposes, anything from short distance city rides to the thrill of time trials and the challenges of touring across the country or even the world. Here at Pashley we have strived to distill the very best of this tradition into a reliable and beautiful modern bicycle. Indeed, the use of legendary Reynolds 531 steel with investment cast lugs was the choice of the men of this era, offering a perfect balance between weight and performance through an elegantly refined aesthetic.
The Clubman Urban is the simplified version of the Clubman designed specifically for reliable and agile city cycling. The Major Taylor drop handlebars give an aggressive yet comfortable riding position, and luxuries like the narrow Brooks Swift leather saddle and iconic GB wingnuts create an understated sense of beauty and pace.
There are two Sturmey Archer gearing options: the S3X 3 speed fixed hub, giving the control of a fixed gear with the flexibility of three gear ratios, or the S2C 2 speed coaster hub, affording you the ability to brake or change gear with no more than a quick back pedal. All this comes together to produce a bicycle with real versatility and simplicity, perfect for speedy rides across town.
