Pashley Clubman Country
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.

- 16 speed Shimano derailleur gears: Versatile gearing allowing you to tackle all inclines as well as cruise on the flat. With traditional downtube indexed gear levers like the classic ‘ten-speeds’ ridden by pros and club cyclists until the end of the 1980s.
- Brass ‘ping’ bell: A classic bell that is a refined addition to any bicycle. The bell has a domed shape body with a simple sprung finger mechanism that sounds out a clear ‘ting’ to let others know you’re approaching. The bell can be attached to either the handlebars or the stem.
- Classic centre-pull brakes with lightweight levers and gum-rubber hoods: Due to their increased power over side-pull brakes, centre-pulls were favoured by the original cycling tourists and were also de-rigueur for club cyclists up to the end of the 1970s. Still powerful today, these brakes are made on the original tooling and paired with lightweight levers with gum-rubber hoods to complete the period look.
- Classic drop handlebars: Versatile bars that allow for switching between a semi-upright to an aerodynamic riding position. Finished with traditional leather bar tape.
- Skin wall tyres with extra puncture protection: A touring and urban tyre with excellent ‘all-round’ tread patterns, and an inner Kevlar guard for extra puncture protection. Skin sidewalls are more flexible than standard carbon black, which helps to reduce rolling resistance.
- Sleek stainless steel mudguards: highly polished and made from corrosion resistant stainless steel.
- Traditional Brooks ‘Swift’ Saddle with titanium rails: The handsome ‘Swift’ is a lightweight saddle with delicately hand-skived lower sides for greater comfort whilst pedalling. With as titanium chassis, it’s one of the lightest saddles in the range. The leather allows the saddle to breathe and form to your shape over time becoming uniquely comfortable. Finished with large hand-beaten copper rivets, and handy loops on the rear for luggage attachment.
- Traditionally hand-built Reynolds 531 lightweight steel frame with investment-cast, fine cut-away lugs: A classic touring frame with a versatile riding position. Built using 100 year old traditional methods, with original lightweight Reynolds butted 531 tubing hand-brazed into fine cut-away lugs. Finished with pointed wrap around top eyes featuring the Pashley name in relief, and matching lugged and brazed raked fork. Cast drop-outs with mudguard eyes and a full compliment of braze-ons for the fitment of a rear pannier carrier and a frame-fitted pump
- Classic bottle cages: Two classic cages with leather grip detailing. Effective design to keep your refreshment bottle secure on the move.
- Pedals with traditional toe-clips and leather straps: keep your feet in securely place, helping to transfer your pedal-power more efficiently.
- Iconic GB chainset: light alloy chainset with classic square fluted crank.
- Double-wall alloy rims with double-butted stainless spokes: Stiffer than standard single-walls, double-wall rims provide added strength without increased weight. Rims also feature a heavy-duty box-section rim profile and double-butted stainless-steel spokes which help relieve impact stress from the rim and build a lighter, more resilient wheel.

City & Leisure
Pashley’s cycles come in a variety of frame sizes. To select the correct frame size for you, first measure your inside leg length (from the sole of your foot to the inner top of your thigh) in inches. Then, use the table below to find the frame size you will need.
Frame sizes are shown in bold followed by the corresponding inside-leg length range:
|Cycle||Size 1||Size 2||Size 3||Size 4|
|Princess / Britannia / Sonnet / Poppy||17.5" = 27.5 - 31.5"||20" = 30 - 34"||22" = 32 - 36"|
|Country Living Special Edition||17.5" = 27.5 - 31.5"||20" = 30 - 34"|
|Guv'nor||20" = 27 - 31"||20.5" = 29 - 33.5"||22.5" = 31 - 35.5"||24.5" = 33 - 37.5"|
|Speed 5||20.5" = 29 - 33.5"||22.5" = 31 - 35.5"||24.5" = 33 - 37.5"|
|Roadster||20.5" = 30 - 34.5"||22.5" = 32 - 36.5"||24.5" = 34 - 38.5"|
|Roadster 26||20" = 27 - 31"|
|Pathfinder||50cm = 29 - 32"||53cm = 30.5 - 33"||56cm = 31.5 - 34"||59cm = 32.5 - 35"|
|Clubman / Countryman||20" = 27 - 32"||21.5" = 28.5 - 33.5"||23" = 30 - 35"||24.5" = 31.5 - 36.5"|
|Aurora||18" = 27 - 31"||20" = 30 - 34"||22" = 33 - 37"|
|Parabike / Penny / Tube Rider||19" = 28 - 34"|
|Picador / Tri-1||15" = 25.5 - 32.5"||17" = 27.5 - 35.5"|
|Pickle||Child's = 17 - 20.5"|
|Robin||Child's = 16 - 22"|
Please note that your inside leg length may fall in-between two frame sizes. If so, you may wish to choose the larger frame size if you have relatively short legs for your height and the smaller frame size if you have relatively long legs for your height.
The frame size in inches is the distance between the centrepoint of the cycle's bottom bracket (where the pedal arm extends from) and the top of the frame's seat tube (where the seatpost enters the frame).
Saddle and Handlebar Position
All models have easy seat height adjustment, with some fore and aft movement and angle adjustment for fine tuning your riding position. The saddle should ideally sit level or be slightly tilted downwards and the height should be set so that, with the pedal at its lowest position and the ball of your foot (in normal shoes) on the pedal, your leg is very slightly bent. If you then place your heel on the pedal, your leg should be straight. On step-over frame models (e.g. the Princess) you should be able to ‘put a foot down’ when you stop, whilst on leg-over frame models (e.g. the Roadster), as they are built to a traditional pattern with a high bottom bracket, you will need to slip off the saddle when you come to a halt.
Your cycle’s handlebar can be raised and lowered, and also canted to give the most comfortable riding position. If a shorter reach is required, the handlebar stem can be reversed bringing the handlebar much closer to the rider.
Due to variations in riding styles and cycle usage patterns, any stated bicycle weight limit is somewhat subjective. However, we are legally obliged to provide weight limits for our cycles; please find these in the table below:

|Penny||110 kg||240 lbs|
|Parabike/Tube Rider||120 kg||265 lbs|
|Aurora/Countryman/Clubman||120 kg||265 lbs|
|Pathfinder||120 kg||265 lbs|
|Tricycle||Max Load (rider+luggage) in KG||Max Load (rider+luggage) in lbs|
|Picador||110kg + 25kg luggage||220lb + 55lb luggage|
|Tri 1||110kg + 25kg luggage||220lb + 55lb luggage|
|Pickle (child's tricycle)||25 kg||55 lb|
|Robin (child's tricycle)||30 kg||66 lb|
Pashley Cycles are built to very high standards and as well as being elegant in their design, they are also extremely robust, and are rigorously stress tested. It is important to be aware that heavy riders and those who frequently carry heavy loads will place more stress on their bicycle and on its components; these riders should ensure that their bicycle is serviced at frequent intervals. Cyclists who have a good riding style and ‘ride light’ tend to place less stress on their bicycle frames and components; all cyclists are encouraged to learn these skills, not only to enhance bicycle durability and reliability, but also to improve efficiency. Ultimately, all cycles – regardless of the load they carry – should be checked and serviced regularly.
