Ideal for your first road bike, the Pinnacle Gabbro One 2012 Women's Road Bike features a slightly re-balanced geometry that 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 One 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 assured performance and durability.
The Gabbro offers the speed and efficiency of a light road bike with the practical advantage of being able to accommodate larger tyres and mudguards. Based on a women's geometry version of the Dolomite, 2012 Gabbros use an all-new frame design with revised tube profiles and geometry - all for a more comfortable and well-balanced ride feel. 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, so it has 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.
