the Guv'Nor

I've got the written quotation for my new bicycle tucked away in a drawer at work - the minute they commence registration this week for the Cyclescheme (tax-free bikes through your employer) I'll be there waving it in my grubby paw. Excited isn't the word - who doesn't like getting a new stuff? Especially if it's transport and tech-porn too!

But isn't it always the way, as soon as you've signed on the dotted line you see another model - different yet equally intriguing... I must confess I have a bit of a pash for the Pashley Guv'Nor.

It just looks so damn fine!

A beautiful contemporary Edwardian aesthetic - with a touch of the Board Track to my mind as well. As my cycling becomes about pragmatism as much as bragging rights I'm also attracted to the low maintenance drum brakes and three-speed hub - with the correct sprocket on there I can't see myself needing any more.

I think the modern brake levers are a shame, but I reckon you could fix that pretty easily. I love it, and its made by a traditional British firm too - check out their website the loving attention to period detail abounds there too.

That's a nice bike. Proper classic lines and looks. Looks head and shoulders better than most of the paper round bikes you see in the bike rack at work.

I am looking forward to the delivery of my spanky new Specialized Rockhopper Comp 29er next week. Yes, I have turned to the dark side and gone big O wheels.

I agree with the brake lever comments, not sure how well they'd work on a push, but the bar end mounted (reverse) levers would look the part.
