Diamondback Sortie 2 29er Bike - 2013 - $1,877.83

If the mission is to achieve some sweet, sweet trail stoke, the Diamondback Sortie 2 29er is a fully capable rig for the job, thanks to 120mm Fox suspension, responsive frame and a solid spec. 6061-T6 Weapons Grade Aluminum frame boasts an array of hydroformed and butted and formed tubes along with a tapered head tube to deliver a strong, stiff and responsive ride. The heart of the Sortie 2 is the Knuckle Box platform, which keeps the rear suspension low, tight and plush to optimize efficiency, small-bump compliance and leverage ratios. Fox 32 Float CTD 29 Air fork has 120mm of travel that can be simply tuned between the 3 CTD settings (Climb, Trail, Descend); 15mm thru axle helps stiffen the front up. Fox Float CTD Air rear shock features Boost Valve technology along with the CTD ProPedal platform to give the bike plush, efficient suspension with great bottom-out protection. 3x10 Shimano drivetrain boasts an XT Shadow Plus rear derailleur and SLX front derailleur guided by SLX shifters; triple crank and 11-36t cassette supply versatile gearing. Shimano hydraulic disc brakes put responsive, progressive braking control in your hands with a 180mm rotor up front and 160mm rotor in the back. Sturdy WTB Speed Disc double-walled rims are outfitted with WTB Wolverine Comp folding tires, which handle everything from loose to hardpacked trails. Oversize 1.5 in. tapered steerer on the fork pairs with the tapered head tube to ensure plenty of strength and handling precision.
