The Newest and Most Improved Hot or Not

Road Cycling ďIt is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.Ē -- Ernest Hemingway

It looked like an SES aero but the bar end caps threw me off.

Thanks.

This is probably the hottest bike on the thread so far, and a Giant too. Who knew?

Well done.

Yeah Giant makes some of the best carbon in the world but they have never been know for aesthetics.

Thanks. It was a gamble as I got it for a steal before the build, but I run pretty much same length stem , rise, and drop on my other 54 TT frames so it felt right off the bat once I had my saddle dialed in.

Esthetic,
Can you tell us a bit about the frameset? I am unfamiliar with that name.
What kind of bottom bracket?

A beauty. Any riding characteristics downside to the aero improvement? Is the bike notably faster at higher speed compared to your other more conventional tube bikes?

As a public service and as the Voice of the Industry , please check out the video below of what bars the pros use. This has revelevance to bar width...I have switched to all narrower bars on my road bikes and vastly enjoy them more and a 40cm bar versus 44cm...I am just over 6' tall...feels so much better and more aero...but reason for posting the following video is because of all the bike handlebar setups I see with the hooks pointing down at the ground. You guys do that because you want to raise the hoods and tip them back a bit.

A suggestion and only that is...don't fall into that trap. Instead, set up your bars like the pros. They know what they are doing and the amateur less so. As a 'priority' first set your hooks level to the ground. This is 'so much' more supportive for low grip pressure in the drops and while sprinting.

Then, push your shifters up or down on the top of the bar to suit your wrist position. I would say a universal trap is to push your shifters back. I would say although not as critical as hook position, again look at the pro position. Hoods are typically more forward. If you don't have the flexibility, then use a shorter stem to place the bar more below you. Pushing the levers back aside from wrist position is compensation for lack of flexibility or running too long a stem.

Just wanted to share and point out we can all take a page out of how the pros ride and why they do what they do. Handlebars and shifters are designed by manufacturers with a given design intent. Rotating bars and positioning shifters back isn't ergonomically what the designers had in mind.

Two bikes above display the rotated handlebar syndrome which btw is more common than not in amateur ranks but 'rarely' seen in pro ranks. This is because rotating the handlebar back raises it with a given stem rise. A bandaid. Robbing peter to pay paul. Peter is the critical hook position. Better riders want to use the drops. The drops are the most comfortable and secure hand position on the bike 'provided the hook profile is correct'. Among pros, hooks are level to the ground which feels so much more supportive and hoods aren't pushed back because reach isn't a problem.

You will see it here and it makes a notable difference while out riding.

Hereís my submission for this time around. Almost a year on this bike now.

That's one of the hottest bikes on the planet. My Litespeed titanium bike with its red and blue accents is sitting right across the room from me as I type. I am going to type this quietly. I'd dump her in a heartbeat for your Speedvagen.

Thanks mods for giving us this playground again. I love looking at what other folks ride. Thanks to everyone who dares to put their prized possession on display for comment. I would participate, but my garage door is faded brown.

Thank you, i think so. I sure can, long in the tooth too, as i did a fair amount of digging up on it

Its a PF30, though i'm running GXP as the frameset as i purchased it was using Shimano and had a pretty nice Praxis bottom bracket in it already.

This was their flagship frame, the Podium Equipe . Unlike most manufacturers Diamondback doesn't offer 'tiers' of carbon, every group level gets same frame, same carbon layout. This particular frame is in the mid 900g range (i'd wager more due to its candy shell paint job), but a good blend of weight and strength.

DB has had pretty radical Aerodynamic developments (Serios TT, Andean Tri bikes) for a company out of the niche fray . That said this reincarnation of the Podium got trickle down Aerodynamic touches and wind tunnel development from its Serios Time Trial bike as a base point, several design cues are evident. Particularly the chunky downtube flow out to the rounded stays, i find that the most unique aspect of the overall look to the bike

This being a 2017, it was last the year they offered rim brakes. For 2018 it was disc-only, The Podium Vitesse. From the looks of it, that marks this mode's run. Nothing for 2019, unless another incarnation is in the works.

The Podium does have some race/sprinting pedigree coming off this 2015 redesign. 2017 was a break-out year for both the men’s and women’s Rally Cycling squads: Together they won nine national championships in the US and Canada and took the overall win at five top stage races in North America. The most notable was was the Tour of California, Evan Huffman and Rob Brittons 5 man breakaway sprints in Stage 4, taking first and second , with the Tour favorite Peter Sagan coming in 6th.

The bike certainly loves to sprint, and seems to holds its speed better on the flats than my TeamMachine, albeit not finding it as lively a climber.
But honestly i have not ridden that many miles using these wheels yet to get a great feel of the whole package in desirable conditions , as i had a tire clearance issue while they were setup tubeless , so the majority of the time in the saddle i was using box rims as winter salt had already hit the roads. At this point of the year in the east coast its the low point of my fitness, really looking forward to warmer days with less headwind to grow with it more and hammer some miles on it. Also may dial front end in more, may be sliding the bars down one spacer down the steerer.

Main warning i have on the frame is the rear clearance is spotty for 25c tires. Tires like Schwalbe Pro One 25c/ Specialized 26c rubbed, while i had better luck with Giant and Hutchinson tires which have a shorter sidewall and dont plump up as tall on a 17c-20c internal rim.

Congrats on building that cool bike and good luck in the forthcoming riding season.

Actually the Podium Equipe did return in 2018, but only with disc. I have one Same basic paintjob and frame shapes. I have mine with Dura Ace mechanical and hydro discs. Put around 2k on it so far, it loves to accelerate quickly, so I second that sprinting comment. However, it's a lot comfier than many other racey frames I tried out before buying the DB. Came with HED Jet 4+ disc wheels, and that's been the only problem. The rear hub seized up last week and I had to send it in for warranty repair/replacement. Not DBs fault though. It would be a shame if the bike did not make a reappearance, as it's a great frame and a great value.

Sorry about the water bottle and saddle bag, but I can't be asked to go out to my shed and take a photo without them on there. Mudguards are removable, but are on for the winter.


I posted this one on the last hot or not thread. Made a few changes, namely bar tape. The colour scheme isn't for everyone, but I like it.
