Pendleton Somerby Hybrid Bike - 19"
Has there ever been a more stylish bike than the Pendleton Somerby Hybrid Bike? We don't think so. Taking its cues from Dutch style sit up and beg bikes, this beauty is extremely comfy and makes us think of sunny days running through meadows and warm loaves wrapped up in pretty floral scarves.
The Somerby has 7-speed Shimano gearing which is great for those rural hills, a padded and sprung leather-style saddle and it's topped off with a rear luggage rack.

Built in mudguards, chainguard and luggage rack
700c wheels for a smoother and more efficient ride
7-speed Shimano gearing
Padded and sprung leather-style saddle with matching handlebar grips

Bought one for my wife as her old mountain bike is horrible for her to ride and she is starting to get into cycling so this will get her out more and be much more fun

Just look at that saddle and handlebars

You are very welcome

Make sure you pick up some GT85 as well -- it's £2.25 on the site at the minute. You're going to want to give this a spray everywhere apart from the grips, brake levers, saddle, brakes and rims, then a quick rub down to take off the excess. The bike has a lot of steel parts and it's sure to rust unless you take preventative measures. Nothing better than a little film of oil over the most of the bike.

Has there ever been a more stylish bike than the Pendleton Somerby Hybrid Bike? I hope so - my Grifter certainly was

Or my chopper - original 1970s with the proper gearshift etc not the remake

Loved that bike

Heavy steel frame... This will also be horrible for her to cycle on.

Says it's alloy but even with the rack & mudguards, I'm not sure how they've managed to make it weigh 15kg. But then the published specs are tosh as it says the front mech is Shimano - it hasn't got a front mech. So quite a limited gear range if you live somewhere hilly.

Edit
Looks like it may have been a misprice, now £279. Prices changed while I was looking at it!

One day only. Yesterday Wednesday 16th. Expired.

I own one of these and i have to say i love it !!!!
It is a joy to ride and look at. The only think you have to watch out for is that the wheels are REALLY THIN so going over white lines in the road when wet can be a little dicey

I did not realize it was one day only - sorry folks I would have mentioned that if I knew

Completely threw me. When i first looked at around 4:30 your link went to £199. Then looked at other models & the special editions were £199 but the original was now £279. Shortly after the SE was also £279. Which is all a bit of a **** as I was going to order for my granddaughter. No way they're worth the full price IMO so back to trawling Ebay.
