Pinnacle Dacite 1 2019 Touring Bike – Review [+/-] $1000

Last updated:
pinnacle dacite 1 travel bicycle

Pinnacle is the own brand of British bicycle retailer Evans Cycles. Started in 2006, Pinnacle is now a well-established manufacturer of urban, hybrid and cyclocross bicycles.

Their touring bike, the Dacite 1, seems a quite nice and versatile bicycle for travel. An aggressive geometry with the sloped top-tube, a wide rande of gear, plenty of eyelets, and mechanical disk brakes.

It comes equipped with Tubus rear rack and a mid-range drive train. The components are one step behind the Fuji but its design is captivating and offers a comfortable riding even on rough terrains.

Nice choice for a mid-range tourer capable of round-the-world bicycle travel
