Advantages of Diamondback 2013 Overdrive Sport 29’er Mountain Bike’s 29-Inch Wheels
The Overdrive features 29-inch wheels which are designed to dampen the impact of getting over obstacles by decreasing the angle of attack and roll over obstacles. These large wheels enable better momentum and offer stability in riding due to the relative position of the bottom bracket and cranks to the wheel axles. The 29” wheels also accommodate commuting and off-road tires.

Diamondback 2013 Overdrive Sport 29’er Review
Diamondback 2013 Overdrive Sport 29’er Mountain Bike is affordable, easy to assemble and performs very well. The bike is lightweight and users will appreciate the hydraulic brakes and adjustable front shock which makes the ride easy to control. Some riders may have to take their bike to a local bike shop to check whether they have assembled the bike properly, especially in adjusting the brakes, the crank and derailleurs. After some adjustments, the crank and derailleur have smooth action and have no issues. The bike works even in wet and muddy trails, the tires and alloy foot pedals were durable.
However, the handle bars are not adjustable and users may have to purchase valve adapter for the common air pump. [Read More Reviews …]
