Maiden Voyage

Just a quick note to say that my Pashley got her first 12 miles or so today. I am VERY pleased with her performance. Even on hills.

More on that and first impressions later. I just wanted to share a quick picture of her at the Donkey farm and to say that I do believe I am in love!


  1. Ohhhh she's gorgeous! So glad you're enjoying her.

    What are your thoughts on those lovely looking Brooks grips? I've been considering them for when I finally get my Pashley.

  2. Great photo - great looking bike! But of course, I'm biased.

  3. Melissa - So far I really like the grips. They were a pain to put on. Not sure if I was doing something wrong or what, but it was a really tight fit. They are comfortable, seem to be a good size and look really good on her. I'd say go ahead and spring for them when you buy your Pashley. Compared to the cost of the bike, the grips are nuthin'! I think that in the long run they will turn out to be a good investment.

  4. She is beautiful! Congratulations and I'm happy that you are pleased with her her performance and look forward to reading more impressions.

    The stock grips on my Pashley were replaced (by the previous owner) with the Brooks Honey Leather grips; they look nice with the Ivory frame and feel nice too.
