Bakerlite bike shop

Bakerlite sells Pashley bikes
and it is a lovely little haven of steel.
lots of tasty frames in sensible and serviceable colour schemes
like black,
and Sturmey Archer hubs.
and 28 inch wheels
and fat white Schwalbe tyres.
older than old school.
Steve the proprietor is a lovely chap
like all good bike shop owners, 
is happy to gasbag about bike related 
for those of you who don't know them
Pashley bikes are made in Stratford upon Avon and 
have built the same frame designs for the last 80+ years.
if you love path racers
the Pashley Guv'nor is probably the closest thing you're going to get
without going bush and trawling through a bazillion farm sheds.
