Who is this bike for?
Urbanites who prefer nippy handling to get them from A to B quickly on roads and cycle paths. Taking their shape from mountain bikes and mixed them with the advantages of a road bike. They used bigger wheels and slimmer tyres to make them faster on tarmac and have evolved into a mix of different styles. Urban bikes come in a myriad of styles and options, all with practicality and comfort at the heart of their designs.
About the Bike
The Pinnacle Neon is light, fast and comfortable. We’ve all heard that claim before but here your fast fitness rides, city commuting and social countryside outings are all done on a bike that remains comfortable and confident. The Neon is a true hybrid in the way it blends cyclo-cross and road bike design cues with a comfortable flat handlebar riding position and a refreshing lack of race-bike twitchiness. This mix of riding position and easy speed makes the Neon both easy-going on lanes and easy tracks and nippy about town.
Interested in a fast bike but not after a racer, prefer some fitness riding on a light bike to more rugged off-roading? The Neon might be your ideal ride.
Good value bike for commuting ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ I chose this bike as the price for the Pinnacle Neon was good for the specification I wanted. Criteria for the bike fitted my needs exactly as I wanted a no-frills bike, specifically with a single 42 tooth chainring, v-brakes, thinner tyres than a mountain bike, 700c wheels, and a freehub/cassette (not freewheel). So this was perfect.
- 6061-T6 heat treated Aluminium Frame allows easier handling across all terrains
- Alloy Fork for durability in the urban environment
- Shimano Acera 8 Speed Drivetrain delivers Quick and easy shifts with great power transfer
- Tektro RX1 V Brakes for controlled stopping in all conditions
- Kenda K-west, 700 x 28c Tyres give plenty of grip in all conditions

Today, the Pinnacle name is seen as one of Britain’s most respected marques when it comes to efficient road, cyclo-cross, mountain and particularly hybrid and utility bikes. But necessity is the mother of invention and to begin with, Pinnacle started life with a very different goal in mind. “We did our first Pinnacle photo shoot in August 2006, launched the brand at the London Bike Show in September 2006, and the 2007 model year bikes were the very first Pinnacles available to the public.
