Packing a similar punch to it's carbon fiber big brothers, the Diamondback Overdrive Comp 2014 is an excellent option for enthusiast riders looking to get into the 29er game. The Diamondback Overdrive Comp packs a punch in terms of value and affordability donning a performance driven package that is spec’d on a frame built to withstand punishment from the trail making it the ideal 29’er for any level of rider. The improved 2014 6061-T6 Aluminum Overdrive series frame boasts of newly formed top and down tubes, a 1.5“ tapered machined headtube, and forged drop outs with a replaceable derailleur hanger. You get the strength where it’s needed while saving weight so you can go a further faster, and with less energy exerted to keep you on the trail longer.
The geomety of the meticulously designed Overdrive Comp is spot on. The ever so sloping top tube provides ample standover clearance. A 71° head tube angle and a 73° seat tube angle create the perfect XC/trail geometry. 440mm (17.3") chainstays equate to an extremely snappy rig and the ability to easily get the front wheel off the ground.
There’s no denying the rock crawling, root crushing power of a larger wheel. Making the largest of obstacles the smallest of matters is a defining trait of these muddy beasts. By offering decreased rolling resistance, increased traction when cornering, and improved ground clearance, one ride upon these massive behemoths is sure to sway even the staunchest skeptic.
The Rock Shox XC 30 TK 29" fork with 30mm stanchions gives you 100mm of travel for the perfect amount of cushion up front and a turnkey lockout feature to give you rebound control for help on steep ascents. Shimano BR-M445 Hydraulic Disc brakes with 180mm front and 160mm rear rotors provide one of the best in class values in a braking system. A full on Shimano Deore drivetrain grants you smooth shifting performance that works in tandem with the Shimano Dyna-Sys 10spd crankset (24/32/42t) with outboard bearing. Add in Diamondback SL-7 double wall rims with WTB Wolverine Comp tires and you are set to conquer any and all obstacles. The Diamondback Lazer Series 31.8mm low rise handlebars and custom DB AL6061 stem coupled with the DB Micro Adjust seatpost and Race saddle round out this incredible cockpit package.
The 2014 Overdrive Comp is an economical means of getting you onto a premier 29er. Whether you’re just “testing the waters” for your first 29er, or whether you want to add a new steed to the stable, the Overdrive Comp won't disappoint.
