Pashley Sold

As the title of this post reveals, the Pashley Princess Sovereign has been sold. I put the Pashley up for sale about three weeks ago, and though it received some local interest, I had a feeling it would more likely sell on a national stage because there aren't a ton of city bike riders in the area... at least not the kind looking to fork over a substantial amount of money for an around town bicycle. So, against my better judgment, I also posted the Pashley on E-bay. Within three days I had nearly two dozen people watching the bike. I was in shock!

To make a long story short, I accepted an offer from an individual who resides outside of Dallas, Texas. She seems very excited to get the Pashley, and I hope that Laura will ride the bicycle and enjoy her every bit as much (actually, more so, I hope!) as I did.

The delay in posting the news was mostly due to settling down the transportation issue, and I have been unsure as to whether or not the sale would actually stick. Laura hoped to have it shipped whole (without disassembling), and set about to find a means to do so from her end. As of late Tuesday, the Pashley was to be on her way to her new home... but, as luck would have it, the driver who was on his way from Idaho, fell into a nasty patch of ice and slid/rolled off the road. Thankfully, he is okay, but it's delayed transport for just a bit. I've been assured, however, that a new driver will be by within the next two days to proceed as planned.

As for me, well, I hope to get a new pair of boots out of the deal, while saving the rest to

make some additions to my newly acquired Raleigh Lady Sports. For now, I hang tight... waiting to bid farewell to Miss Pepper Potts.

  1. It's funny - just as I'm getting into riding a city style bike, it seems that most of the bloggers I read who influenced my decision to get this kind of bike are moving away from them.

  2. Cecily, the Pashley was a beautiful, fun bike to ride, and if I lived somewhere she was getting the use she deserved, I would certainly have kept her. I feel better having a lesser "city bike" (the old Raleigh) now because it just doesn't get the same use as my diamond frame. Sometimes, I think it just takes some time to figure out what it is that works for us, and for me, a lot of it has to do with living in the middle of nowhere. :o) Your bike is SO beautiful, and I'm sure you'll get great use out of her.

Word verification is on, but I've turned off the moderation portion in an attempt to make it easier for you to know that your comment has indeed made it through. We'll see how this goes, but I'm hopeful that this will help out and I'll try my best to weed through and remove spammers comments. Additionally, I recommend copying comments before hitting publish as the "blogger comment eater" seems to continue his snacking.
