This month’s customer review was written by Joanna Moore on the Pinnacle Gabbro Women’s road bike, and as usual, he is entitled to the £250 voucher.
I bought this in the summer and have enjoyed over six months cycling all over London and some cycling holidays on it. It feels light and speedy, but the wheels are a decent enough width to make me feel safe on different terrains and in rain. When I looked at womens’ road bikes (four shops, over ten bikes tried) I was put off some by their flashy design. But the gabbro’s deep purple and white isn’t sporty, it’s simple but stylish, so I don’t feel worried about it drawing too much attention when I lock it up and leave it outside in town.
Definately worth investing in a female-specific bike rather than a small mens bike, as the handle bars feel much better sized and spaced.
The white handle bars got grubby quickly, but that’s only because I use it so much! I was prepared to spend a bit more but was really pleased to find this one, and it’s good value.
I’m 5’7” and the medium size suits me perfectly.
