Steering geometry is fairly sporty, wide stock tires let me cruise faster over bumpier/looser surfaces while the CF frame/fork really do seem to absorb some vibration compared to steel. I'm a lightweight rider but it feels strong enough for a heavier rider. Largest size is 59cm but top tube is a bit sloped.
Wow. I had no idea Diamondback was making something like that. That looks like a totally sweet bike. Have you toured on it? If it weren’t through axle I would seriously probably start saving for one. Have you ridden one of the AL ones with standard dropouts?
