Diamondback 2015 Century 1 is an endurance and well-performing road bike. It is designed for the rider who is looking for an alternative to the stereotype fit and high prices of top end race oriented bikes. Based on Diamondback’s Enhanced Performance Geometry (DEPG), it incorporates a longer stem to take the stress off your neck and back and provide a more comfortable fit.

Diamondback 2015 Century 1 has the frame built from 7005 aluminum alloy with custom butted and formed tubing to deliver a balance of strength, durability, and lightweight. With the excellent handling and damping of the Performance Alloy fork, a Shimano drivetrain, and HED wheels, you have a great new bike at an even better price.

 

PROS
Customer reviews validate our opinion – it has good parts and shifting is smooth and accurate thanks to the mid-class Shimano Sora groupset, cheaper bikes, unfortunately, don’t have this. It has a lightweight aluminum frame that is perfect both for a beginner and an adept rider. Carbon fiber fork reduces weight. Has a stylish custom made frame. If you find the riding position not entirely comfortable, you can easily turn the stem upper position to change it. Water bottle holder is included in the price.

CONS
Some customers have found the saddle to be less than completely comfortable. FSA parts for this bike are as strong as stone but heavy though. If they wear out, you can exchange them for lighter ones.
