Diamondback Overdrive Sport 29er Mountain Bike

If you're a member of the declining population of riders who still hasn't thrown a leg over a 29er, the Diamondback Overdrive Sport might just be the bike to push you off the fence. There's just no denying the rock-crawling, root-crushing power of a larger 29" wheel. Making the largest of obstacles the smallest of matters is a defining trait of these rigs. Throw decreased rolling resistance, increased traction when cornering, as well as improved ground clearance into the conversation and this 29er is sure to sway even the staunchest skeptic.

First off, this lightweight aluminum bike is a climber and an obstacle-conqueror par excellence. At its core is a 6061-T6 aluminum Overdrive series frame boasting newly formed top and down tubes, a machined head tube, and forged drop outs for added durability. The ever-so-sloping top tube provides ample stand-over clearance while geometry-wise the frame is perfectly on target for making quick work of cross country and trail-riding endeavors with a 71° head tube angle and a 73° seat tube angle. The 390mm (15.4 inch) chainstays, too, ensure this 29er is extremely responsive and a flat-out joy to ride.

The Overdrive Sport's 29" wheels give you a leg up when it comes to rolling over rocks, roots, and such but you'll surely appreciate the SR Suntour XCT-LO 29 suspension fork up front that ably delivers 100mm of travel for the perfect amount of cushion. Changing gears is a piece of cake on the 24-speed drivetrain with trusty Shimano derailleurs front and rear coupled with Shimano trigger shifters on the bars. The SR Suntour XCR SIX crankset features a tried-and-true 44/32/22t chainring selection and coupled with a wide-range 11-32t cassette on the rear wheel you've got the tools to both ascend like a mountain goat and stoke your inner speed demon on rip roaring descents. And speaking of bombing downhill, the Shimano BR-M395 hydraulic disc brakes and their astounding stopping power will let you rein things in before they get outta control.

Weinmann is a renowned purveyor of quality rims and their SL-7 Doublewall aluminum model here on the Overdrive Sport provides peace of mind and trusty, predictable handling over any terrain. While wolverines are not something we recommend tangling with in the wild, we'll make an exception when it comes to WTB Wolverine tires as their slight tread profile belies its fierce bite. This fast-rolling, 2.2 width tire tackles dicey descents, flies across flats and devours steep climbs all day long.

With such a bevy of awesomeness exuding from the Diamondback Overdrive Sport we wager it's a lock that this rig will boost the fun factor up to Mach 10.

          Comments about Diamondback Overdrive Sport 29er Mountain Bike:

          Easy to assemble out of the box. Front brake caliper directions did not show an expanded view of parts but by putting on the front wheel first, it all came together. Gearing was adjusted by the factory just fine. I am 6'2" with a 32" pants inseam. The XL fit fine although I like to ride more upright and will get a handle bar with a rise. I also replaced the seat with a more padded, ergonomic model. Have put about 150mi on so far and very pleased.

            Comments about Diamondback Overdrive Sport 29er Mountain Bike:

            Researched lots of bikes and this one had the most bang for the buck. Brakes and shifting are awesome. Comparable to my $1800 bike except for forks. Will upgrade to air forks later but the ones on it work fine. The forks are just a little heavier than air forks. Great details on this bike. Seat, grips, cables, all good quality.

              Comments about Diamondback Overdrive Sport 29er Mountain Bike:

              Bought this to replace a Mongoose Stat. Better than average Components, and a nice discount made this a good value.

              The bike was almost completely assembled, but the front caliper was not clearly shown in any of the documentation. A little reseach online, and it was evident how it was assembled.

              Have only put about 50 miles on it since purchase, but all of them have been smooth, and worry free.

              The Hydraulic Brakes stop on a dime, and the mid range derailers, and crank set shift with ease.

              DiamondBack managed to offer a list of sought after features, with mid grade components, at a reasonable price.
