Diamondback Overdrive Sport 29er Mountain Bike Product Description
The Overdrive Sport has a formed and butted 6061-T6 aluminum frame. It makes use of a high-end frame technology that allows tube shapers to lessen bulk in lower-stress areas so that the bike weight is reduced significantly without compromising the bike’s strength. Its Suntour suspension fork facilitates safe downhill riding by absorbing force from obstructions on the trail. The combination of the frame’s all-purpose geometry and the fork’s 100mm travel suspension works well with the mounted on the 29-inch wheels with double-walled alloy rims and Wolverine Comp tires. Its 30-speed drivetrain consists of Shimano Altus shifters and Alcera rear derailleur that produce a variety of smooth and responsive shifting options.
The Overdrive Sport also features handlebars and a seat post that are DB Lazer-forged, as well as a DB 3D alloy stem. Its Shimano hydraulic disc brakes can perform a superior stopping function and can evenly distribute weight throughout the frame when the bike is suddenly stopped, thus preventing the rider from tilting or tipping over.

Diamondback Overdrive Sport customer reviews
Customers usually find the frame of this bike really nice, with high quality parts that are well-designed and well-built. It can hold up for a long time and provide a sturdy ride. The bracket height and head tube angle of the bike make it a good climber and provide a comfortable ride on flat terrain. And as long as the SR is stripped and cleaned regularly, it will always provide a good fork.
When it comes to this bike’s weak points, customers only suggest that it can do better in some aspects such as the brakes, shifters, the saddle quality, and the position of the seat tube. Nonetheless, it is already a fine bike on its own and is reasonably priced. [Read more reviews …]
