I'd been looking for something to replace my aging Merlin and found a screaming deal on the 2012 Diamondback. It was a bit of an unknown and I really wasn't looking to go Campy, but the price was just too good to pass up.

Keep in mind that it arrived in the box from the factory. Many of the concerns I have would be corrected by any self-respecting bike shop during buildup.

So without further ado...

The eight thousand dollar question: Can Diamondback build a high end carbon frame? Yes. It has an aggressive, lively feel to it while still absorbing a lot of road noise. How a bike feels is personal preference, but this one can hang with anything I've ever thrown a leg over. Further, it's a good looking bike to my eye--with tasteful graphics and nice shapes.

The main drawback (as with a number of other high end frames) is that the internal cable routing creates a fair amount of friction and is a pain to maneuver cables through.

Out of the box, it's not good. Campy 11 is notorious for not liking cable friction and this thing has a lot of it. Replacing the cables with properly lubricated Jagwire Ripcords solves the problem.

This is the main complaint in the reviews I've read and no wonder. The brake cables the bike comes with look like they started life holding up a Soviet bridge. Also, the included brake pads are not designed for carbon rims. Once these issues are corrected it stops fine.

Build Kit Sizes
My 58cm bike was not speced as stated on the website. It came with 46cm bars and 177.5 cranks--nether really appropriate for the frame IMHO. I replaced both. Also, keep in mind that this is a standard crank, so if you're a fan of compacts, you'll have to swap them out.

I can not believe anyone would spend this much money on a bike unless you're in the tour de france.
