While the Plowman Craven-Evans Cycles team has been using the Pinnacle Aeos alloy/carbon frameset this season, to give the team the greatest competitive edge at the Tour of Britain, Pinnacle has produced a full carbon frameset, the C3.
Pinnacle says that all the best features of the original Aeos have been taken and further developed into the all new carbon frameset. Although only available to the team at present, the Aeos carbon will be available as a complete bike with several different groupset options from December this year, ranging in price from £1,299 - £2,499
Gordon McCauley and Tony Gibb recently rode the first carbon frames in the standard Pinnacle team colour scheme at the Tour of Ireland. It was then decided to fit the complete team out for the Tour of Britain with custom painted Plowman Craven-Evans Cycles framesets in the team's striking pink and blue colour-ways.
"The guys have been riding stock frames all year with excellent results and very positive feedback", says Scott Hargrave, brand manager of Pinnacle Bikes "Pinnacle have worked with the team riders to produce a carbon frame that we and they are very happy with. This isn't just a run-of-the-mill stock frame we have bought but a completely original ground up design. We are thrilled with such positive feedback from the riders for such a young brand and look forward to developing this relationship in the future."
