  3. My apologies, not a brilliant picture.

    My 2010 Pinnacle Dolomite. Was my Winter commuter, hence the guards and reflective additions. Now reassigned to daily general use duties with my retirement.

    Not long after I got it I parked it up next to a Kinesis Racelight and was gratified to see the frames were identical, all bar the decals. It's on 28C tyres, with 105 mechs and brakes, but I kept the Sora brifters as they're great for riding in traffic up on the hoods. Therefore, it's still 8 speed but I've never felt the need for finer gaps between the gears on this one.


    It's been used hard, but maintained hard too. Photo was taken this morning and shows it's still in close to new condition.

    All change again!

    It's now become electrified, and what a civilised way to travel around town, and to and from work, it is :becool:

    Kinesis is quality at a fraction of the cost

    My first ever aluminium frame bike. Been a bit of a struggle getting out for a ride lately, but just had a nice blast through the woods.

    My first MTN bike. Aluminium frame with hydroformed tubes (whatever that means! LOL).


    My first bike was a hand-me-down from my older brother when I was around 9 years old. It was a Schwinn Stingray, gold, with a banana seat and those big long handle bars. I rode the stink out of that bike for quite a few years. Boy, have they come a long way since then!

    My Multitrack 7100 and my brother's Crossrip 3, just Trekkin in the woods about a week ago. Yes, fenders/mudguards are on my list, haha! I am thoroughly enjoying this 'new' 12 year old bike, she is a beauty!
