Pinnacle Dolomite 4 RRP: £800 | Cyclescheme price: £600
Evans Cycles’ typically good value own-brand road bike is aimed at the commuter looking for a capable weekend ride. The aluminium frame is smoothwelded for a sleek look and the fork is carbon with an aluminium steerer. There are mounting points for a rear rack, and enough room for mudguards, though they are not fitted as standard and Evans says you can’t fit anything fatter than a 25mm tyre with mudguards in place. The Dolomite comes with disc brakes for the first time in 2016 – TRP Spyres – among the best of the current crop of cable-operated disc setups. evanscycles.com
The Cyclescheme price is the most you will pay for a given item, including Transfer of Ownership fees. Price assumes you are a standard rate taxpayer; higher rate taxpayers will pay less.
Internal cables not only keep the sleek lines of your road bike’s frame free from clutter, they help keep grit and grime out
TRP Spyres are easy to set up, reliable and provide good modulation – possibly the best cable-operated disc brakes you can buy
