I had a longtime customer order a Pashley Princess for his wife, so I brought in a Guv'nor too just for fun. Ended up selling the Guv'nor to him too so he would have something to ride with his wife. (Harry Friedman would be proud of me.) The white Schwalbes and titanium Brooks and leather grips are a nice touch. A bit heavy, but heck, it is a frame like they made in the 30s. If you google Pashley Guv'nor and L'Eroica you will find a story and movie about a couple of Brits who rode the long ride this year on their Guvs. Man that would be a long haul.
