Diamondback Overdrive Pro 29er Mountain Bike – Nashbar Exclusive

Carbon fiber gets a large number of attention at the moment, but it surely was once aluminum that was once first used to build ridiculously mild bikes. The Diamondback Overdrive Professional 29er mountain motorcycle continues that prime-performance hardtail legacy by incorporating tried and true 6061-T6 aluminum in custom shaped and butted tubing that exemplifies strength and lightweight weight. Its 1-1/8″ to 1.five” tapered head tube creates a stiff front finish to deliver crisp, accurate guidance, and the solid rear dropouts with a replaceable derailleur hanger make sure a serviceable, long life. Up front, the Fox 32 Waft CTD 29″ suspension fork provides you with 100mm of shuttle; masses for blazing along cross country singletrack. The fork also features external rebound and lock out plus a 15mm through-axle for stiffness and security below acceleration. Speaking of tried and true, the Shimano 2×10 drivetrain is the epitome of reliability, strength, and precision. Shifting is handled by a Shimano SLX Rapidfire 2×10 setup at the bars, a Shimano Deore front derailleur, plus the exemplary Shimano XT Shadow SGS rear derailleur. There may be also a Shimano SLX 38/24T crankset in addition to a bombproof Shimano HG50 10-speed cassette. Oodles of precision stopping power is provided by the Shimano Deore hydraulic disc brakes, complete with XT rotors. The quick-rolling 29″ wheels feature incredibly reliable SL7 aluminum doublewall rims in addition to 32-hole SL7 aluminum hubs. Rounding out the wheelset is a suite of Schwalbe Fast Rob 29×2.25 tires that sport an aggressive, all-around tread pattern for improbable bite plus a kevlar belt to maximise puncture resistance. Hand-built 6061-T6 aluminum 29er hardtail frame features custom shaped and butted tubing for strength, stiffness, and lightweight weight FOX 32 Waft CTD 29″ suspension fork delivers 100mm of shuttle, external rebound and lock-out, plus 15mm through-axle Shimano 2×10 drivetrain with SLX shifters, Deore front derailleur, and XT Shadow SGS rear derailleur Shimano SLX crank
