Our bikes

We are pleased to offer the following Pilgrim bicycles, all of which are hand-assembled at our shop in Westhumble from top quality components.

Pilgrim Tourer  – the green ‘un

The Pilgrim Tourer is our popular off-the-peg touring bike.  £1450.00.  * * Fully available in all sizes currently (May 2021) * *

Now into its sixth year, our off-the-peg Pilgrim Tourer is built to order at our Westhumble shop, with the same attention to detail as our other bikes.  With a tried -and-tested Reynolds 725 touring frame, and using 9-speed triple running gear, this is a great package at a great price, which includes Brooks B17 saddle, Tubus rear rack and double-eyeletted Mavic wheel rims.  Nothing that needs upgrading in fact.

Normally a rather lovely dark green but black is also available for no extra cost.   Sora STI levers are standard but bar-end shifters and flat-bar versions are always popular and available built to order at the same price.

The 48/36/26 9-speed gearing gives the full range for all occasions, whilst the relaxed cyclo-cross handlebars and mountain bike transmission ensure a stylish, modern and rugged ride that is ready for whatever you have in mind.

Dynamo lighting, USB output and front rack are all common upgrades priced as required.

We put loads of miles on one of these bikes before offering them for sale, both on and off the tarmac, and we really rate it as something special.  Our happy owners keep us updated and seem just as delighted with the bikes as we are.  Bike number 1 often finds it catches the selector’s eye as our daily transport all year round amongst some stiff competition.

Full details available on request.  This is a bike to use for everyday transport, days out and serious adventures.


Pilgrim Tourer – disc version  – the blue ‘un

The disc-braked version of our popular off-the-peg Tourer.    £1550.00  * * Fully available in all sizes currently (May 2021) * *

20190418_16130820190418_16133620190418_16134420190425_133136 20190425_13311520190425_13301020190726_171208 20190726_171224 20190726_171259

Built to a similar spec as our tried-and-tested Pilgrim off-the-peg Tourer but with TRP Spyre mechanical disc brakes.  Also available with STI or bar-end shifters for drops or straight, trekking, Jones or butterfly bars as required.  Or any other setup please just ask!

Normally a nice dark blue this is also available in dark green (subject to availability).

As with all Pilgrim bikes, this is hand-built to order on-site at our shop nestling under the Pilgrim’s Way in the ancient folds of the North Downs, where the chalk byways still step out ‘neath yew and box, home of that most ancient of ancient Britons the badger, haunt of bats and owls…  oh and some French cows and Dutch sheep..  but we digress..

The ‘Whitedown‘ is our fast tourer / audax bike, using a lugged and brazed Reynolds 631 frame hand-built for us in the UK by world-renowned frame builders who we are delighted to be working in partnership with.  Allow about 6 to 8 weeks to ride the complete bike away after placing a deposit.

This is the bike for sporty light touring (the end- to- end staying at B&Bs for example) eating up the miles with comfort and speed. It is also perfect for lengthy commutes, day or night rides, sportives and audax events. It can accommodate 25mm tyres and mudguards as standard, or the ‘Whitedown Plus‘ option has clearance for 28mm tyres and ‘guards.  A Brooks B17 Narrow saddle is standard but other choices can be requested.

The ‘Whitedown’ is available in half-inch frame increments, built to order in a choice of colours and finishes.  A typical build using the Shimano 105 groupset with audax wheels and mudguards would be £2,195.00 for the complete bike.  Changes to the spec are welcome and may affect the price.  Campag Centaur would be a small increase for example.  Reynolds 853 tubing can be used as an upgrade over the standard price and fork upgrades are also available.  Either a 1″ quill or Ahead type steerer can be specified.

LADIES FRAME OPTION – the ‘Whitedown Plus’ can also be built with a traditional ladies lowered top tube.  This can be built up to audax or tourer spec and makes a lovely choice for anyone wanting a traditional “ladies” frame for a serious bike.

The ‘Northdown’ is our full touring build from £2,245.00   ** DISC BRAKE VERSION FROM £2,365.00.  ROHLOFF OPTIONS AVAILABLE **

The ‘Northdown‘ is our full-on tourer, again based on a lugged and brazed Reynolds 631 frame from our UK frame-builders with a global reputation. This frame has slightly over-sized main tubes and braze-ons for front as well as rear racks. This frame can be built for either a 1″ quill stem or 1 1/8″ Ahead stem.

The final build is normally a Stronglight-style chainset with mountain bike hubs and rear gearing. Wheels are hand-built in the UK by a highly regarded touring specialist. The price includes mudguards and rear rack, and a Brooks B17 saddle if required.

Frames are built to order in half-inch increments in a wide range of colours to suit your taste.  Disc brakes are popular upgrades on the Northdown.  As with the ‘Whitedown’, allow about 6 to 8 weeks from placing a deposit to riding out of the shop.
