Pinnacle Cobalt Three 2012 Hybrid Bike

For riders who enjoy country lanes one weekend and forest tracks the next. The Cobalt's a wide-ranging bike that makes fewer compromises, a bike that's at home on mixed terrain and remains comfortable on longer rides. All models use Suntour suspension forks with lockouts for tarmac use and feature the widest possible gear ranges with a wide-ratio triple chainset up front and a mountain bike gear set at the back. It's an ideal bike for fitting a rack and mudguards for all-weather commuting, or simply just having one of the most all-round bikes available.

So Good, it's been nicked already

Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good value, Good quality
I purchased this bike from Evans three weeks ago and it is without doubt the best bike I have ever owned.
I'm not a hardened cyclist, but had recently got back into it and upgraded to this bike as a treat to myself.
For the price it comes with fantastic components. The Hydraulic disk brakes are brilliant and the gear shifters are seamless. The two rides I took it for demonstrated just how much better this bike was than some of the cheaper options and if you can stretch to the price, it will make such a difference to the quality of ride.
Unfortunately some local scumbag must have had an attack of the green eyed monster and took it upon themselves to break in to my garage and help themselves.to my fantastic new bike.
I'm awaiting a rebate from my Insurance company, but the second this comes through, I'll be rushing straight out to replace it with exactly the same bike.
My fingers are crossed to win the £250 vouchers to cover the excess and the cost of the heavy duty security kit I'm going to have to buy to keep the toe rags away from it.

An excellent hybrid - does what it says on the tin

PostedOctober 9, 2012
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good value, Good quality, Comfortable, Lightweight, Looks great
I bought this bike to be a Jack of all trades - goes to the local shops with kids at the weekend, commuting and a little bit of off-roading.
It does all of these - gearing and gear changes are smooth and logical; Front forks absorb every single bump (did I hear you say pot-hole?) i've found both on and off-road.
The colour - much less vibrant (shall we say) that in the picture and it does show up very well. I do have the large version, so when i'm on it we make quite a sizable and visible lump on the road.
I'm really impressed with the build quality of this machine and would highly recommend it.

Brilliant bike, great features!!!

PostedSeptember 23, 2012
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good value, Good quality, Comfortable, Lightweight
My boyfriend and I both bought one of these, I thought Id find the womens version more comfortable but didnt. Admittedly I dont know a great deal about bikes but friends of mine who do say this is a great bike! The breaks are brilliant and Ive been out on this for 5 hours and have not experienced any discomfort and its also nice and light. Gears are nice and smooth. Ive been on some rough terrain and it coped very well.
