Diamondback Haanjo Trail Gravel Road Bike - 2016. If you're looking for a set of wheels that offers the practicality of a commuter and the versatility of a gravel adventurer, the DiamondBack Haanjo Trail is definitely your bike. It's been a favorite of ours for a couple of years now, and the tweaks DiamondBack has made this year make the Haanjo Trail just that much better and just that much more fun. The Haanjo's frame is made from fully butted 6061 T6 aluminum tubing, the alloy of choice for mid-to-high-end road and mountain bikes because it's light, can be shaped for strength, and delivers years of tough, rugged dependability because it won't corrode. A tapered, integrated head tube excellent steering response, control, and road absorption. The frame affords you a more comfortable riding positon, with a taller headtube, while a longer wheelbase increases stability at speed. The Haanjo Trail is equipped with some of Shimano's finest components that are built with the kind of rugged dependability you want on your gravel-grinder adventure or cross-town commute. Shimano Ultegra 6800 11-speed components put you in control of all the gearing options you need no matter what kind of road you explore. An FSA Gossamer cyclocross crankset, with the ideal combination of 46/36T chainrings, propels you across pavement or trail. A DB GP saddle gives you a comfortable supporting perch to enjoy the ride, and HED Tomcat disc-brake wheels provide a lightweight and durable set of wheels that aren't intimidated by unimproved country roads or an underfunded city boulevard. The Haanjo Trail's excellent brake modulation and all-weather stopping power is truly impressive thanks to the Shimano RS-785 hydraulic system, with 160mm and 140mm rotors front and rear, respectively. This is probably one of the most versatile bikes you'll ever own, and is perfect for everything from exploring hard-pack to touring and commuting and light trail riding. DB X-furo Flaero Gravel handlebars, DB 3D forged stem with a +/-7 rise, a DBR Performance micro-adjust alloy seatpost, and 700x 40 knobby tires complete the Haanjo Trail and make it a steady performer on any ride.
