Diamondback Overdrive Expert 29er Mountain Bike - Nashbar Exclusive
Your ticket to fun and fitness at a fabulous price has arrived - the Diamondback Overdrive Expert 29er mountain bike. It's trail-ready plus light, comfortable, and versatile enough to be your do-all bike for any purpose - be it commuting, a trek down the local greenway, or simply exploring the neighborhood.

The Overdrive Expert's foundation is a 6061-T6 aluminum alloy frame featuring tubing formed and butted for both strength and light weight. What this means out on the trail or on the road is that you're piloting a nimble, maneuverable machine. You'll revel in the comfort and precision steering supplied by the SR Suntour XCT suspension fork featuring a plush 100mm of travel to smooth out rough terrain. The fork also sports an external lockout feature that enables you to maximize power transfer in situations where suspension isn't necessary, such as climbing or rolling along on asphalt or other smooth, hard-pack surfaces. There's also an external preload adjustment to further dial in the fork's performance.

A 3x8-speed Shimano drivetrain means 24 smooth and responsive shifting options for steep climbs, quick accelerations, or prolonged efforts. This makes for excellent performance when pedaling off-road on strenuous terrain as well as easy, comfortable trips across town. And rest assured you can stop quickly and safely with a set of Tektro Aries mechanical disc brakes delivering plenty of power and control.

The 29er's large-diameter wheels are ideal for rolling smooth and fast over rough terrain and the Overdrive Expert certainly delivers with a splendid wheelset. There's some ultra-reliable SL7 aluminum doublewall rims, 32-hole SL7 aluminum hubs, plus tried-and-true 14g spokes laced in a 3x pattern. This all equates to a rugged set-up that's built to tame any terrain - exactly what you'll be doing on each and every outing.

Comments about Diamondback Overdrive Expert 29er Mountain Bike - Nashbar Exclusive:

I previously owned an older Diamondback Overdrive base model, and while it was very nice, it was too small for me. When researching a replacement, I found a great deal on Nashbar, and ordered it without much hesitation.

The bike got here on time, and it took about 15 minutes to get it put together, and ready to ride. The only issue I had was with the disc brakes, but that was due to a brain-fart on my part.

I've ridden it a few miles now in the two weeks or so that I've owned it, and haven't had to adjust the derailleurs, brakes or anything. The only thing I might change is to rotate the handlebars a bit so that reaching the brakes is easier.

A fantastic beginner bike for a great price. Thanks Nashbar!

    Great buy

    About Me Casual/ Recreational

    Comments about Diamondback Overdrive Expert 29er Mountain Bike - Nashbar Exclusive:

    Bought this from Nashbar for my 14 year old son. 2 days later they offered a 25% off promotion. I called Nashbar and the immediately and cheerfully issued a 25% refund to me. The big arrived quickly in a clean box. I hired a bike mechanic off of Craigslist to assemble it for $50. He was extremely impressed at the quality of the components, especially considering what I paid. He said normally you'd see these on bikes hundreds of dollars more. My son loves is. He's 5'11 and the 16" was a good fit. Very happy with Nashbar.

      Handles climbs, downhill and rocks very well. Great beginner bike at a great price! Super fun bike for hitting the trails and hills. Between the oversized tires and front suspension, handles terrain very well!

        I use the bike for light commuting and light off road riding. I was worried ordering on-line, but it worked out perfect for me. I'm 5'-11" and got the 18" bike. Went together easily and I don't have any complaints. Wait for a sale thought to get the best deal! I'm typically pretty stingy with a good rating, but this bike exceeded my expectations.

        Comments about Diamondback Overdrive Expert 29er Mountain Bike - Nashbar Exclusive:

        Bike had a few issues when shifting gears. It basically wouldn't engage at times when shifting. Then about my 5th or 6th time riding it the chain snapped in half and I wasn't even riding it that hard. Just got the replacement part today. Customer service was good and got it out quick. If this chain holds up then I would give it 4 stars.

          I bought these for my wife and daughter for causal street & trail rides. Good quality, light, GREAT value. The 29" wheels make them feel tall. I wish I'd gone with smaller frames (18" for 5'7 was way too big). These look like $$$.

          Great bike and much less than you'll pay for something comparable at a bike store. Still getting used to 29" wheels (comfortable but bike feels tall). I'm 5'11" and wish I'd gone with the 16" frame instead of the 18". I also have 16" and 18" Overdrive Expert bikes (also happy with these but the Comp components are a dramatic step up). Out of the box the rear brake mount rubbed and needed to be adjusted away from the disk. Otherwise setup was easy.
