- Looking for a bike shop that sells Pinnacle bikes
From another thread, someone suggested a Pinnacle Arkose Two. It could be the perfect bike for me. The problem is that I want to buy it via the bike to work scheme and work has a bit of a unique scheme but have negotiated special deals with bike shops in the Somerset/Bristol area. I’ll give Evans a call.Posted 4 years ago
Update spam, pics done, stock arrived. Looking like 32-35 depending on brand is the limit on the back of the seat tube rather than the 38s, due to the shorter road-length stays. If it had longer stays it’d be so close to the Arkose as to be not worth it so no suprise. 25s fitted as std. Loads of space for wider guards etc.
Done a couple of 100+ milers on one now, one in the dark on bigger tyres with a 100 lumen light – ie hit a few minor holes on the way. No bother. Love it. tbh with 32+ tyres the difference in comfort between Al and steel is hard to tell / gone and the impression I got was the lower weight (or same overall as a steel roadie with calipers) and a bit more drive stiffness.

Aluminium was always good? : )
mattscm, thanks. I think 😀 I reckon the black looks better up close with the blue matt, the silver BB7 SLs and 105 bits stand out nicely. Silver one looked like it was trying to be retro, or even cheap? Couldn’t decide. Anyway. I have some tanwalls one one here and it looks good. Weight – will weigh one later this week, haven’t done so yet. About 2 BB7 SL calipers, a bigger dropout and a smidge on the fork’s worth over the Dolomite 5?Posted 3 years ago
