From the very first time you set eyes on the Penny you know that it is a wholly unique bicycle. The flowing multi-tube frame, inspired by our traditional ladies town cycles, exudes beauty and elegance, and the choice of subtle matte paintwork adds an understated beauty that complements its unrivalled stylings.
The Penny is designed specifically for comfort and versatility, and this is reflected in the choice components we have selected. The hand-made Brooks leather saddle gradually shapes to your form, becoming a truly custom product and offering the quality support of over 100 years of manufacturing experience.
For more rural rides, the Sturmey Archer hub brakes and gears are sealed off from the elements and perform reliably in all conditions, whilst the full length mudguards keep you clean and splash-free whatever the weather. All this makes the Penny a refined alternative to the modern hybrid bicycle, combining Pashley’s traditional values with the very best contemporary design and componentry.
