The Pinnacle Gabbro 3 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. Overall we can offer advantages in comfort and performance for female riders that we couldn't achieve without starting from the beginning with tubes and geometry. So, gearing up for your first big Sportive or Triathlon and want a bike that can handle the winter miles as well as race-day? 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 Three uses Shimano 20-speed Shimano Tiagra gearing, plus narrower shallow-drop handlebars, a women's saddle and shorter cranks and stem to improve the fit.
