The Century 1 is an endurance road bike designed for the rider who is looking for an alternative to the stereotypical fit and high prices of top end race oriented bikes. Using the Diamondback Enhanced Performance Geometry, the frame incorporates a taller head tube to take the stress off your neck and back and provide a more comfortable fit. Diamondback completely redesigned the frame. It is built from 7005 aluminum alloy with custom butted and beautifully formed tubing to deliver a balance of strength, durability, lightweight, and sleek looks.
They do ship them as “Ready Ride bikes”. That means the bikes are shipped 95 percent assembled. Typical bike assembly is time-consuming and requires technical know-how. Ready Ride reduces the time and skills needed for the final, four-step assembly.

Selective geometry

The geometry likewise requested somewhat more exertion from us on the trips. The two of us, short and since quite a while ago legged, were a touch further back off the bicycle than we feel is perfect. Indeed, even with the Diamondback Bicycles the distance forward our legs needed to achieve forward more than favored, and thus we were battling more than we could have been. Now and again it felt like additional endeavors were expected to hold the front end down on slopes that weren’t even all that precarious. Bringing down the bars and stem similarly as they go assisted gnawing.
