I'm as blinded by pretty paintwork as the next bike fancier, but I've a soft spot for the rather plain Pinnacle brand.

That favouritism isn't for any personal reason (I've never owned one) but they remind me of the best traditions of family-friendly British transport design: modern two-wheeled versions of the Mini or Morris Minor. They're not flash, just quietly efficient, and they look utterly dependable.
