Bike Review: Pashley Princess Sovereign & Roadster Sovereign

Bike Review: Pashley Princess Sovereign & Roadster Sovereign

Recently I had a chance to make a trip up to Logan Square and pay a visit to the folks at Boulevard Bikes – a great neighborhood bike shop right on the circle.

Back to the Bike Blog – But Riding a Cruiser Bike??
