The Gladstone Cinder Path Racer


Gladstone is proud to announce the launch of our Cinder Path Racer.
A quintessentially British handcrafted bicycle, harking back to the period of the Cinder Path Racer,
but bought up to date for modern roads with the finest handpicked components.

The choice of components throughout is a reflection of Gladstone’s mantra of simplicity and style.
From the nickel plated fleur-de-lys lugs to the functional 2 speed cable tree hub.

As each Gladstone Cinder Path Racer is bespoke and built to order,
the exact specification can be tailored to your individual requirements on request.
We have also been asked by some of our customers for an 18 speed,
calliper braked version of out Cinder Path Racer.
This is now being finalised and will be built to the same exacting standards.

Please contact us for more information.
