Pinnacle Arkose One 2013 Cyclocross Bike - Medium (Soiled). This is an ex-demo or soiled bike. Soiled bikes are bikes that have imperfections or have suffered wear during the course of sale here at Evans Cycles. They include ex-demo bikes, bikes that have been returned by customers or bikes that are scratched or suffered a minor dent during transport. These bikes are only available online for Mail Order or collect in Store and cannot be ordered into store for test rides.
The Arkose rolls fast over tarmac, towpaths, woodland trails and country bridleways. It takes influence from Cyclo-Cross race bikes without compromising its intended use as an efficient high-mileage, all-round, cross-terrain machine. Using a tapered-steerer all-carbon fork and a taper-oval top tube for accurate handling and reduced impact shocks makes this a comfortable ride at speed. The geometry is relaxed enough for high-speed off-road use in wet conditions as well as retaining a neutral feel on tarmac. A chainstay disc mount with maximum heel clearance matches well with narrow Q-factor road chainset and ensures simple fitting of mudguards or racks.
