Pashley 26GHZ

16 posts in this topic

This was too nice not to make a topic for. Got it off Ben Davies. I had one 8 years ago and loved it but I never liked the Pashley forks, too short and too much offset but I just rode it as it was as I didn't have any better forks at the time. With modern 410mm forks it's...

1013

+8

383

About 73, I don't have a protractor.

Only had a little manual about but it feels so right already, I think it was the most underrated mid-school frame there was, the other big old school ones were all too dated and there hasn't been much since apart from a Hex which I don't like the bb height.

Absolutely beautiful, totally agree that it was under rated. Looks like a dream to ride. Nice work!

Cheers, they weren't cheap and I think they came around when short bikes were on the way out and long seatless ones had been taking over for a while, they can't have made many either, they hardly ever come up.

I love these frames, such a good design and the thin steel tubes look great. I think because Pashley always used those oval downtubes they are straight gauage. I would have thought that if they replaced that with a reynolds butted tube they could have shaved quite a lot off the weight!

It's actually been re done in satin black, but I think it was one of those horrible burgundy ones before. I can't see any numbers, paint must have covered it.

I loved my yon broon yin! I didn't underrate mine at all.

Lets all just remind ourselves how well they rode by watching Danny.:rolleyes:

Yep, burgundy before, when I acquired it from @skuzzbucket it had had about 70% of the paint removed, I had it powder coated and those decals are official Pashley ones!

Yeah, I'm kind of over the whole, must have a seat to look like a normal bike (aka BMX) thing. I blame my change of tack on Kenny B.

Any pics of the marino floating about ross ?I love how your style is still very trialsy on that bike :)

Is the geo aimed in that direction or more towards bmx/inspired style ?

Probably flog this ko km1 bike and get a marino build ,Cant get on with mod anymore since owning the onza zoot

Which Marino is that bud? Do you mean the Vader? I know how everyone loves that name. Anyway, Cocky has it now and is doing a better job of riding it that I was!...before his ankle kissed the ground.

The geo was aimed at using a short stem on a frame that was roomy enough to throw around like a comp bike. It worked, to a certain extent.
