I believe it is. Assuming the Trek 7.3 is the same as USA, seems so, having checked the UK site. The first Pinnacle has a Shimano crank which looks good. The consensus is that Shimano cranks are better than brands often spec'd on bikes at large that use Shimano component groups; Truative , FSA and the like. Just from what I've read HERE. It's appearance struck me. The second Pinnacle as well as another bike or so have a shape frame a bit to compressed for my liking. Alex rims have their critics but the new ones (and old) are OK. Botrager is the butt of jokes.
Sora long range ders. works as good as anything at almost any price. Deore is good too but Sora's more roadish. Deore's touring and mountain. Acera (Scott's) has always been a lesser group and I believe shifts less crisply. I could go on and on picking away but since you've asked, that's a start.
Treks, even those who buy 'em, agree that they're a bit "over-priced" though I've a great deal of respect for them, Scott, Felt & Spec. To me, the first bike seems exotic as it's not sold here. Pinnacle Co. really broke their heads to formulate it overall. Treks are not at all elan to me. Perhaps I can't speak of them without prejudice.
Again it's a horse race.
