I had read about Adeline Adeline in the NY Times a while back and knew I’d want to check it out this summer. http://www.nytimes.com/2010/04/15/fashion/15bike.html ,
And then of course, on Let’sGoRideABike http://letsgorideabike.com/blog/2010/08/pashley-pride-in-nyc/
I called a week ago for some specific information on the pashleys, and found the salesperson very helpful. Greeting pedestrians as they pass by, are sturdy dutch bikes lined up along the sidewalk. Upon entering I met Marci (sp?), and when I mentioned I had previously called, she quickly informed me that I had spoken with her. Marci was helpful and informative, as were her colleagues. When I took a Pashley Princess Sovereign out for a spin, I knew my infatuation with this charming bicycle was justified. I found the 17. 5 framed 5 speed both functional and beautiful.
