Pashley / F.W. Evans 90th Anniversary Special Edition Touring Bike

 
 
FeaturesReviewsDeliverySelect

When Frederick W Evans first designed a bicycle in 1921 his aim was to create forward-thinking framesets and products for UK cyclists. By the mid-Thirties he held patents for innovative frame designs as well as the CTC Silver Plaque award for his patented dropout design. Now in 2011, we’re looking back at our history to celebrate 90 years of the Evans name in the cycling.

When we thought about how best to celebrate Evans’ roots as a company in our 90th year, a British-made bike, true to F.W. Evans’ ideals, seemed most appropriate. British-built and British-designed is rarer now than it was in F.W. Evans’ days but there are still a few cycle manufacturers in the UK that have survived the changes in manufacturing over the last few decades.

 

Pashley are one of our favourite cycle brands at Evans, we love their hand-crafted quality and the finish is second-to-none. They are made in Stratford-upon-Avon in a way that F.W. Evans himself would recognise, since lugged and brazed construction is still a highly-regarded method of building some of the most desirable frames. When Pashley agreed to build a bike for us based on their ever-popular Clubman model, the F.W. Evans 90th Anniversary bike was born. We chose a specification that would have been typical for an F.W. Evans cycle in the 50s and 60s. Touring and road bikes were F.W. Evan’s speciality so a wide-ranging and lightweight tourer was the most suitable celebration of Evans’ roots.

Limited to a run of 90, each one is individually numbered and finished with powder-coated traditional F.W. Evans green paint. With Brooks leather saddle and bar tape, a triple Stronglight chainset with bar-end shifters and centre-pull callipers, this is a bicycle that any of us could load up and enjoy a weekend break seeing the quiet roads of the Peak district or week-long ride among the high passes of Italy. It’s also a comfortable, high-mileage ride for the days when racing is the last thing on our minds. A unique and British-made bike for all road cyclists, whatever distance you have planned.
