Pendleton Drake Hybrid Bike
Slinky Studio, Review, "When you reach speeds of over 30mph you can truly appreciate how well built this bike is - the ride is so confident that nothing shakes or rattles as you dart along, it just rolls ahead smoothly and is brilliant fun! But when you want a slower cruise the Drake is a winner too: all that can be heard is the gentle sound of the tyres rolling and air travelling through the rugged steel spokes." Rated 5 stars!

Rated 4.3 out of 5 by 32 reviewers.Rated 2 out of 5 by ObsidianWinter Not great - not awful I bought this bike as part of the cycle to work scheme my employer ran, and had I known it had sturmey archer gears I would have chosen something else. The gears themselves function to an extent, but they are not easy to maintain yourself (I’m so glad I also got the Halfords bike care plan too!) and doing anything at all with the back wheel is next to impossible. I can’t even fix a flat tire on that wheel without taking it in for the technician to do because the gears are so awkward to work with. They also can’t really cope with serious hills. I live in Yorkshire so my commute involves 4 miles of suburban terrain, and a couple of dauntingly steep hills. This bike struggles to take me up them. Maybe it would be better in an area which is slightly flatter like Holland, maybe, or Norfolk, but do not expect this bike to be good at anything more than a mild incline. Other than the bad gear system the bike is ok. It’s not great but, for what you are paying, it’s decent value. Unfortunately, the gears impact pretty much every riding experience. So in summary, if you intend to ride on predominantly flat ground, and either know how to work with sturmey archer gears or are happy to take it to a professional if anything needs work, then it’s fine. If not then avoid it. 16 August 2016Rated 1 out of 5 by Fattyattheback Buy something else I bought this bike for my wife a few years ago for getting in and out of work as it seemed to have good features. The tyres supplied were of poor quality so we replaced them with Continental hardshell ones. The gearing makes removal of the rear wheel extremely difficult and although the nuts were tightened, they kept slipping and the chain would then go slack and come off. Now it's just sitting in the garage. 01 July 2016Rated 5 out of 5 by TGNC Super comfy, fast and cute - great bike for commuting or weekend cycling! Having not cycled in a long time, and having never cycled on London roads in a commuting capacity, the main criteria for me whilst looking for a bike was a product that would give me confidence on the roads, be comfortable and look nice. As it's a 45 minute commute one way by bike I wanted something that was both agile for speed and stable in an environment which requires a lot of stop - start. The Pendleton Drake covers all of these and I'm so glad I chose it! It makes the commute on traffic filled roads enjoyable and is really fun to ride. I actually find myself missing being able to cycle it on days where I work from home! 14 August 2016Rated 4 out of 5 by SueR72 Very light, comfortable bike I was looking for a nice looking, light and basic bike to cycle to the park or just around town. This bike suits me perfect, with only 3 gears and 12kg of weight it fits the bill for me just fine. Love the style, color and it's easy to ride for a beginner like me. If you are looking for a short commute bike or just for leisure is perfect. 06 August 2016Rated 5 out of 5 by Sali244 Lovely Stylish Bike Having not ridden a bike in almost 20 years, I decided it was time! Looking around my local Halfords i instantly loved the look of this bike and decided to take the plunge! I have no regrets and absolutely love it. It's very comfortable to ride and simple to use with only 3 gears to choose from. I had read in previous reviews about the ticking noise from the hub which I was dubious about but to be honest although you can certainly hear it, it's fine and you get used to it. I have added matching black/orange accessories to make it my own and I have to say it's looking fabulous! Great purchasing the bike with 10% off too :) 09 June 2016Rated 5 out of 5 by Issie1991 Halfords Tooting Bec/Balham Love my bike so much, it's perfect for cycling on the roads around London. 01 May 2016Rated 5 out of 5 by Mishydishy Simple and Stylish Bike I wanted a bike to commute to and from work. When I first saw this bike, I knew it was the bike for me. It was perfect for what I needed. It looks great, simple to work with, yet it is stylish. I always get compliments on how nice my bike is, and how expensive it looks! I only have just under a fifteen minute journey each way most days of the week, so I didn't require a bike with lots of gears etc. It is smooth and glides nicely along the river path that I cycle along. Another good thing is that I purchased the bike in the sale so I saved money too, which is always a good thing! It's not as racy as I had imagined, but it is still a great bike! :-) 22 December 2015Rated 4 out of 5 by Mandy1987 Cheap first bike Snazzy looking bike and I was nervous about getting on a bike for the first time in over a decade. This bike rides well, looks good, fair price and great replacement for buses and cars. Down sides are it makes a ticking noise as the chain moves and there is no suspension. Your lower back/bum would ache after a longish journey (and I have no pre-existing conditions) It only has 3 gears, could have done with a few more but it's still a good price considering its price and performance. I also used the halfords 6 weeks check up offered to all bike purchases but really I don't think they did anything with mine. 25 September 2015
