Diamondback Option Bike 2014.
Since 1978, the Diamondback brand name has been synonymous with precision, durability and integrity. Diamondback is a brand that built its reputation on top of the line BMX bikes. 30 years later, they are bridging that gap from their high end BMX to high end mountain bikes. The Diamondback Option adds a little variety to the DB dirt jumper line with it's fully rigid design and cost saving options, resulting in a rock-solid dirt jump bike for the price-conscious shredder.
Built upon a full cromoly Dirt Jump frame, the Option features a butted top tube and downtube, Mid BB, an integrated internal headtube, and horizontal BMX dropouts. Diamondback incorporated a suspension corrected full cromoly rigid fork with internal flutted legs and one piece CNC steerer tube with an integrated crown race for a fully rigid set up ideal for street riders or those looking to save a buck.
Tubular cromoly cranks add a stiff and bullet proof platform for generating power. A single speed set up with an 11t driver keep things simple and quiet. 32h, double wall rims laced to sealed bearing hubs make for a bombproof wheelset while the Hayes HMX-5 mechanical disc brakes offer a ton of stopping power. DB bars and stem round out the cockpit and a DB Tour Pivotal saddle and post keep things low and tight.
