In the years when I was starting to ride a mountain bike (well not that long ago — I am talking 1991-1992 timeframe) Diamondback was certainly one of the recognized brands and good bikes in the hills. Then they sort of disappeared from the radar of at least me and my friends. Now they are back with brand new models including a very high-end road bicycle, a 29inch mountain bike and many models in between. Long story short — they are now again a contender for attention (and your wallet and muscles)
Here is a video of the introduction of their high-end Diamondback Podium 2013:
And then please check out the video of the new Sortie 29 Black:
The 29-inch bikes are a new update to the model that was released in previous 2011 and 2012 but they are with some nice additions — from what I understand the new mountain bikes add a larger front tire and a smaller BUT faster rear tire — I need to check this out in my next visit to a local bike shop. In the mean time — check out the new bikes at least on the Web 🙂 I will be doing the same.
