Whats Better?

Postby jaybiking » Wed Jul 25, 2007 15:31 pm

Hi All,

Novice here again, just a quick question, i've had a look at two bikes at the same price. Ones a Trek 6000 Disc 2007 and the others a Pinnacle Evolution 1.0 '07' any tips on what to go for, two of my mates have Trek's and they have had no problems whereas I haven't heard of Pinnacle, thats coz of my stupidity I know. I know of Trek, is that a good make.?

Thanks lads , every bit helps

Trek are a good make that have been around for years. The only problem i see with the brand is the price. They seem a little expensive compared to some competition.
Pinnacle are, i believe Evans Cycles in house brand. They only appeared last year and although the bikes themselves look reasonable, they also look a little overpriced.

Having never ridden either brands i don't know how much my 2 penneth worth counts for. But it is here anyway.

Couldn't agree more, the Pinnacles are behind on spec for their price, and at these competetive points a good fork and parts can make more of a differene than the frame.
