Product Description

Product Description

The bike industry sees fads come and go. Innovation doesn’t always assure success or even relevance. Luckily, the 29er revolution is one that’s here to stay--and for good reason. There’s no denying the rock crawling, root crushing power of a larger wheel. Making the largest of obstacles the smallest of matters is a defining trait of these muddy beasts. By offering decreased rolling resistance, increased traction when cornering and improved ground clearance, one ride upon one of these massive behemoths is sure to sway even the staunchest skeptic. The Diamondback Overdrive packs a punch in terms of value and affordability and takes 29ers to a new level. The improved 2013 6061-T6 Aluminum Overdrive series frame boasts of newly formed top and down tubes, a machined headtube, and forged drop outs with a replaceable derailleur hanger. The Geometry is spot on. The ever so sloping top tube provides ample standover clearance. A 71° head tube angle and a 73° seat tube angle create the perfect XC/trail geometry. The 390mm (15.4 inch) chainstays equate to an extremely snappy rig and the ability to easily get the front wheel off the ground – something that not all 29ers can be so proud of. The Overdrive is a fantastic entry level 29er well balanced between value and performance. The SR Suntour XCT gives you 100mm of travel for the perfect amount of cushion up front. Add to that Disc brakes courtesy of Tektro and you have one of the best in class values for an entry level 29er period.

Key Upgrades Upgrades from Overdrive V:

Brakes: Mechanical disc brakes have better stopping power than rim brakes, especially in wet and muddy conditions
Drivetrain: Shifters, rear derailleur, cassette, & chain have all been upgraded to 8-speed compatible for a total of 24 speeds to choose from
Wheels: Disc brake compatible wheels
Upgrades from Overdrive:

Fork: Lock out allows the fork to be "locked out" or stiffened for more pedaling efficiency on smoother surfaces, but also be "opened up" for bump compliance on uneven terrain.
30mm Stanchions - Bigger stanchions equate to better steering and less fork flex.
Brakes: Hydraulic disc brakes allow smoother stopping power, aren’t effected by grit on the cable, & provide better braking modulation while the larger front rotor means more powerful braking for the front end.

I had written a long review about some issues I had with the bike. I said I would send in an update after I spoke to DB today.

Here is the quick recap of my first review:

1) DB could do a better job packaging by adding some sort of cushioning packaging material. May be the cause of the wheel issues below.
2) My front wheel was very untrue
3) My back wheel was slightly untrue (to the point where if this had been the only issue I would have just lived with it)
4) I was shipped the wrong pedals (resin instead of the metal pedals spec'ed on the DB and Amazon website)

Update:

I just spoke to Jason at DB. He called a couple local dealers and got one to true up the wheels at no cost (to me anyway). I'm really happy about this. I was was hoping I wouldn't have to ship parts back and forth to get this issue resolved. I plan on taking it in this afternoon.

I noted to Jason that I got the wrong pedals. He said the specs are subject to change. I understand that, but the spec's then need to be changed on the websites (Amazon and DB). Don't downgrade a part and still spec out the previously better part. However, at the end of the day we are talking about me getting a $10 resin pedal over a $15 metal pedal, neither of which I really want. I've already ordered the DB sound pedal as an upgrade and I would have done so if I had gotten the pedal I was supposed to. I noted it more for the principal of the thing.

The bike is more assembled out of the box than I would have thought (I've never bought a bike online before). It was just about ready to go except the handlebars and front tire are removed and zip tied to the frame. After getting those on you just need to tune the breaks and the derailer and its ready to go.

After reading reviews for weeks on all the 29ers out there, i decided to give the Diamondback Overdrive V a shot. I am new to mountain biking. That being said, this bike is amazing. It feels very powerful. The upsized 29" wheels feel like they can take anything you throw at them. Assembly is extremely easy. I also love that Diamondback uses the same frame throughout the Overdrive line, so the pro model has the same frame as the V. I also love that even though the V comes with cantilever brakes, it has the mounts for disc brakes giving the option to upgrade later. Really the only drawback is that Diamondbacks warranty DOES NOT COVER any bike delivered to your home in a carton. To me, that's just not right. But, all in all, this bike is an absolute STEAL for the price. My recommendation is that if you are looking for a beginner to novice 29er, this is the bike to get. You just can not beat the quality of a Diamondback for this price.

My name is Amanda and I work for Diamondback Bicycles. We DO cover warranties on bikes delivered to a consumers home in a carton. Please note that a warranty is an item that has a manufacturer's defect only (this does not include incorrect assembly). If you have any questions on how to assemble your bike we do recommend taking it to a local bike shop for help.

Size Name: 22-Inch/X-Large Verified Purchase
I'm a big guy at 6'6 and 310lbs. I'd about given up on finding a bike that fits me and took a chance on the 22" frame Overdrive. This bike is gigantic is size, and everyone that's seen it are amazed. A guy I work with, couldn't even get on the bike without standing up on a 8" curb, Lol. The bike came almost completely assembled, just had to install the front wheel, handle bars, pedals and adjust brakes. I was missing the tool set that was supposed to come with it, but luckily had the tools to complete the assembly. I was a little concerned about damage because of other reviews I'd read. The box that it was shipped in, had no visible damage to it at all. To my surprise the only damage was a couple of scratches on the frame. I can live with the scratches, so I'm not complaining. The wheels were straight, and after assembly the gears seem to shift good without any adjustments to the derailleurs. My local Dicks Sporting goods bike mechanic said that he would assemble the bike and do the adjustments for free if I needed help, but I haven't had to take it to him, may take it there for the first tune up. The seat that comes with it is not very comfy, but I ordered the Planet Bikes Anatomic Relief Bicycle Saddle and quickly changed that out. I've also added a handlebar riser that adds 3" to the height, that makes a huge difference in the lean forward. If you're looking for a nice entry level mountain bike that won't break the bank, I recommend this bike. This is my first real bike since I was a teen, and I'm smiling ear to ear.

Size Name: 16-Inch/Small Verified Purchase
This bike seems to be of high quality. However, the box that the bike is shipped in is inadequate, and that is being nice. The front tire is ziptied to the frame, metal on metal. This led to scratches on the frame of my bike. Additionally, there is no padding inside the box, so our front tire was bent. We were able to straighten the tire, but the scratches/dings are not fixable. In addition, the description of the bike says it comes with Alloy Forged Pedals. The pedals we received were made of cheap plastic. I chatted with an Amazon representative who told me my only option was returning the bike, despite the box being destroyed and waiting on a replacement. At this point, I would just like the correct pedals and I will chalk this up to a learning experience and will be more diligent in the thoroughness with which I read the reviews on items. Had I read all of the reviews, I would have seen many others having the same issue as me, both with the scratches, bent wheels, and incorrect pedals. I was contacted by a 2nd Amazon rep who was much more helpful. She is going to provide the correct pedals for me. In the end, no, I am not happy as this is unacceptable with purchasing new items. There clearly is an issue with the packaging, and I feel Amazon should provide feedback to Diamondback on this. Maybe they have, who knows. Regardless, I am unhappy about paying for a 'new' item and receiving it in such condition. My concern with receiving a replacement is I have 0 confidence I will receive a replacement in 'new' condition, given the reviews on packaging for this bike.

Buyer beware!
