Diamondback Catch 2 27.5+ Mountain Bike
The 2016 version of the Diamondback Catch 2 is at the leading edge of current dual suspension trail bikes as it feature's Diamondback's Level Link suspension and 27.5 Plus wheels. Designed for riders who are looking to push their limits, or just want to try out something new, this bike offers a unique yet familiar ride.

Diamondback chose tried and true aluminum for the frame, with modern geometry that enhances the bike's go-anywhere vibe. 130mm of travel feels like a lot more on trail, especially with Level Link and 27.5+ mid-fat tires on Diamondback's signature Blanchard rims. It's consistently surprising how efficiently the Catch 2 pedals and with a SRAM GX 1×11-speed drivetrain there's a gear for the trickiest of sections. A Fox Float 34 suspension fork, SRAM Guide R hydraulic disc brakes, plus a KS Supernatural dropper post round out this forward-thinking bike.

Comments about Diamondback Catch 2 27.5+ Mountain Bike:

I am very happy with my purchase of Catch 2, amazing build for the money. I got a fantastic deal from Nashbar, and shipping was great. I would have to spend at least 1500$ more on something comparable from other brands. Disclaimer: The below review applies to 2016 catch 2. The 2017 model is a bit different and some of my gripes are not applicable.

I opted to go small for my height of 5.7. I could have gone Medium but very glad i went down a size.
The frame is heavy which is ok in my book, but the welds are a bit sloppy. Considering the MSRP on that bike I would think the QA would be better. The cable routing was also a bit sloppy especially on the dropper post. I ended up replacing the post with an Easton with internal routing to clean things up a bit.
The back wheel hub was very tight and making noises. After adjusting it all seems ok.

The bike is very capable and comfortable and makes me feel like a better rider even though I am not. I am able to do trails that I was not able to complete with my older bike due to more travel and amazing traction. Another surprising aspect is the quality of the high quality pedals included. They are taking a beating, go through water crossing, and are still smooth, comfortable and quiet.

The suspension works great once set up correctly. Supportive, stable and effective when needed. The brakes are very strong but noisy. Might replace them at some point with Shimano XT.
