Pashley Speed 5

Made in England, the Speed 5 is a tribute to the heyday of gentlemanly British cycle racing. The British racing green and gold colour scheme hints at this heritage, and the traditionally slack frame geometry gives a dynamic riding position. Every Speed 5 is meticulously constructed from legendary Reynolds 531 steel. Classic 5-speed hub gears and a powerful fully-enclosed 90mm hub allows to brake late for corners and have ultimate control over speed.

Product Description

Details

The Speed 5 is our tribute to the heyday of gentlemanly British cycle racing. This was a time when riders would come together in the noble pursuit of record-breaking times with only the satisfaction and thrill of success for reward. It embodies all that was great about this era, allowing you to follow in the footsteps of these men in your own exciting cycling endeavours.

The British racing green and gold colour scheme hints at this heritage, as does the frame-mounted number plate, and the traditionally slack frame geometry gives a dynamic riding position for maximum speed and performance. This sense of lineage is bolstered by hand-built quality - every Speed 5 is meticulously constructed by our dedicated craftsmen from legendary Reynolds 531 steel to produce a bicycle that will last a lifetime. The quality of construction is matched by the components we have chosen for this most special of cycles. The wide diameter Sturmey Archer hub brakes allow you to brake late for corners and have ultimate control over your speed, and the classic Brooks Swift leather saddle gradually forms to your shape for a high level of comfort and full range of movement.

The Speed 5 is not simply a revival of path racing tradition but an advancement of the sport, embodying the principles of the early pioneers with a refined design they would be truly proud of.
