Diamondback designs all kinds of bikes from tour-level road bikes, race level mountain bikes, and in recent years Diamondback has made incredible strides in multi-purpose bikes that are excellent for everything from commuting to fitness to leisure riding. The Trace fits the versatility bill to the letter. With wider, more comfortable tires, flat bars, and a 21-speed drivetrain, Trace can get you across down and across the park all in one breath.
Trace's 6061 Aluminum frame is lightweight, strong, and corrosion resistant, this material being the same material companies us on high-end bikes as well. A straight blade fork works with large 700c wheels and tires that are slightly wider than regular road bike tires to deliver a smooth ride that can transfer from the road, to dirt/gravel, greenway, or sidewalk without adding the unnecessary weight associated with suspension forks. Plus, a Shimano 21-speed drivetrain offers two essential promises. Firstly, the name Shimano means you're shifting with some of the industry's best engineers--the promise being smooth, dependable, and reliable shifting for years to come and with little maintenance. Secondly, 21 speeds promise that you'll have options for amazing top speeds, quick, responsive acceleration, and hill-climbing ability such that no incline will have you walking your bike.
