    Good replies, yep the pinnacle certainly doesnt have the best name, underated is never a great word to use when describing a product for sale. Even if true!

    and i like the analogy on the credit card too that sums it up well

    Hatred of hardtails? Fair enough. I thought everyone loved them 😀 i could easily turn it rigid and miggt do if i can find a good fork with lots of mounting points that fits…

    I probably can afford to keep it, esp if i can resist the urge to tinker…

    Thanks for replies, i think the vagabond has ‘normal’ shifters this year.

    Will look at those others as well if its a main stream brand then 0% finance can come into play! 😉

    Looking at this for commuting, winter riding, general bimbling about with the intention of some bikepacking at a later date.

    What else in a similar price point/capability can one recommend the madon insearchof looks great but sure is spendy…

  • Had this dilemma a few months ago. Rode lots, looked at loads more. Settled on trek fuel ex8 which this year is 2800 with a great spec amd drivetrain choice (shim or sram)
