Pashley Country Clubman - $1899

Not a used bike, but a demo we have had in the store for a while.  Pashley is a company that builds bikes in England in classic styles reminiscent of older designs.  They are probably best known for their gorgeous interpretations of the classic old English 3-speeds, but they also make this lovely Clubman, which echoes the design of road bikes from days gone by.  Built around a Reynolds 531 double butted, lugged steel frame, and equipped with a mix of modern and "retro-styled" parts, it's a great riding bike that stands out in a crowd.  We've had it for a few years now, but it's got fewer than 10 miles under its tires.  The Brooks leather bar tape and Brooks Swift saddle (with titanium rails) are a bit faded, but a treatment with leather dressing should freshen them up.  New this bike sells for $2695, but now we have it at $1899.  A 24.5" frame for the taller rider.
