The Pinnacle Gabbro 2 2013 Women's 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. The geometry retains the close-clearance, short wheelbase feel of a race bike while balancing the nimble feel with secure, stable handling - a perfect blend of characteristics for a bike that can be ridden year-round in the UK. A carbon fork, 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. Ideal for your first road bike, the Gabbro's slightly re-balanced geometry offers advantages in comfort and performance for female riders that we couldn't achieve without starting from the beginning with tubes and geometry. The Gabbro Two uses narrower shallow-drop handlebars, a women's saddle and shorter cranks and stem to improve the fit and Shimano 8-speed 2300 gearing for benchmark performance.
