Pure Bliss

Pashley

If there were a bike made specially for me, I’m almost certain it would be the Pashley Sonnet Bliss (or the pure, I’m not sure yet).

Either way, it’s utterly beautiful.  I haven’t seen a more perfect color combination like this before.  Cream and claret they call it.  Heaven is another good name I came up with all on my own.

The Bliss model comes with 5 speeds and the Pure is 3 speeds.  Bliss has a few extra features (like a Dynamo headlight), but overall they’re pretty similar.  Brooks leather sprun saddle, Gorgeous/big wicker basket, wonderful wine colored accents (or navy if you’d prefer).

I guess I just like classic English styling on bikes.  I like them heavy and pretty.  This bike is perfect for me.  I was looking at the Flying Pigeon bikes because they’re cheaper (not that I”m buying a new bike) and because they had some fun colors like green, but nothing like this.  I can’t shut up about it. I can’t stop staring. And drooling….

I guess I’d like a mixte too.  A lighter frame that I could use on longer treks.  A Pashley, and a mixte and that’s all…. And a tandem. A Pashley, a mixte and a tandem and that’s it. And my Raleigh. A Pashley, a mixte, a tandem, and my Raleigh and that’s it.
