The Pinnacle Dolomite 1 2013 Road Bike offers the speed and efficiency of a light road bike with the practical advantage of being able to accommodate larger tyres and mudguards due to the deeper-drop calliper brakes. The geometry retains the close-clearance, short wheelbase feel of a race bike while balancing the nimble feel with secure front end handling that would be at home in the Belgian spring classics - a perfect blend of characteristics for a bike that can be ridden year-round in the UK. A light all-aluminium fork keeps the weight down, slim seat stays and a taper-oval shaped top tube increase rider comfort while the front end of the bike retains plenty of stiffness for power transfer and a quick handling response. The Dolomite One has a full gear range from the compact Shimano Tourney A070 50-34T compact chainset and 12-28T rear cassette. 25C tyres help smooth out rough roads and the shallow-drop bars give more hand position options without the potential discomfort of a pro-racer's riding position.
