i know what you mean; i fancy one too it would be lovely to just have one, but don't really think i'd get enough use from it to justify the price however...

Oh joy! I have my lovely new Princess outside the front door as we speak :D

I've done all the hills in my local area and it's fine - low gear and go really, really slow! No need for any messing with gears.

Couldn't be happier.

Thanks for all your advice.

May you have many happy miles together.

My "shopper" is a single speed Pashley Delivery bike in Hovis Livery. It has one speed and rod brakes. I simply adapt my style to the cycle. It isn't a racer, it is a stable load platform, and ridden as such is a superb and comfortable ride.

Pashley Princess

How about the Pashley Provence? Thats a beautifully curvy bike, just the opposite to my Orange Clockwork! I still love it though. It's not quite so 'Miss Marple' as the princess but it does have style. It is quite flat where I live.
