- Pashley Guv'nor
I've got one and I love it, it was probably my picture whenever. I think when I posted the image I said it's one of those bikes you get or don't, Pete obviously gets it, everyone who disagrees is obviously wrong, but won't think they are because they don't get it.
It really isn't that heavy (Reynolds 531), you can fit mudguards but why? It would spoil it's looks. The steering is incredibly vague, if you shake the bars you can see the wheel trying to catch up. It seems to take an age to get up to speed due to the size and weight of the wheels (28” steel rims), but once you’re off it’s got a lovely feel to it.
If I want to ride off road I've got an MTB, if I want to ride on the road I've got a road bike, if I want to go for a pleasant amble with my wife I'll take the Guv.Posted 8 years agoourmaninthenorthSubscriber
But surely its the type of rider that's contrived – not the bike itself?
Ahj well, that's always the problem with "marketing" and "lifestyle", isn't it.
If that was mine, I'd push it to the top of the nearest hill, hold on and use the nearest wall to stop…
I'd like to see the look on your doctor's face once you'd picked yourself up.
A very good friend (whose opinion on many things I respect enormously) likes them. It's the one thing on which he and I differ..!Posted 8 years ago
