Pashley celebrated the Coronation of King Charles III by releasing the Special Edition “Kingsman” bicycle.
Styled on the Pashley bicycle that HRH Prince Charles rode in support of the British Asian Trust in 2021, the Pashley “Kingsman” derives its name from The King’s Men, the acting company authorized by royal patent, to which William Shakespeare belonged.
The Kingsman frame is made from legendary Reynolds 531 steel, painted in a regal ‘Royal Blue’, complimented by a golden chain and hand-made leather grips. The frame geometry provides a relaxed riding position, with the renowned Brooks B17 leather saddle that shapes over time for lasting comfort.
As with all Pashley’s cycles, care has been taken to ensure a reliable performance and ease of maintenance with all-weather hub brakes and gears (a choice of 3 or 8 speed), plus reinforced puncture resistant tyres. A classic front dynamo headlamp and rear LED light keeps you visible at night, and a sturdy ‘kick-down’ propstand allows you to stand your Kingsman ‘to attention’ with ease.
Hand-made in Shakespeare’s birthplace of Stratford-upon-Avon, the Special Edition Kingsman is a true British bicycle fit for a King… and for you all!
NB: Leather 'bottle bar bag' pictured is available as an optional extra.
|Frame Size||Inside Leg Length||Stand-over height|
|24.5"|| 33-37.5"||35.5" (DTT)|
The Kingsman comes in three frame sizes shown in the table, followed by their corresponding inside leg length range and stand-over height.
The frame size is the distance between the centrepoint of the cycle's bottom bracket (where the pedal arms extend from) and the top of the frame's seat tube (where the seatpost enters the frame).
Leg length should be measured from the sole of your foot to the inner top of your thigh (in inches) - please note that this is a different measurement to your trouser inside leg length. If your inside leg length falls in-between two frame sizes and you are unsure which size is best for you, please visit our Sizing Page for further guidance.
DTT stands for 'double top-tube', where an additional top-tube has been added to the frame.
The stand-over height is the height from the ground to the top of the top-tube. The Kingsman has a higher than average top-tube ("stand-over") and bottom bracket height. If your inside leg is at the lower end of a frame-size range, you may need to support yourself on tip-toe when stopping on your bicycle.
