INTERBIKE 2009 – Pashley had its usual collection of high class English style represented, and on center stage was this level example of craftmanship: The Clubman prototype 3-speed fixie.

Finishing off the elegance are these chromed wingnut axle bolts.  MSRP for the bike will be $1,895 and it should be available in Spring 2010.
