Diamondback Podium ETAPE Road Bike Carbon

Diamondback Podium ETAPE Road Bike Carbon 

The Diamondback Podium ETAPE is a state of the art carbon competition road racing machine. Featuring aggressive carbon shaping and internal cable housing design, there were no expenses spared with this frame. It clocks in at a mere 950 grams thanks to the newly designed tapered Continuous Fiber Technology full carbon fork with integrated carbon crown race. The frame is outfitted with Shimano RS-21 clinchers and a Shimano 10 speed drivetrain.

Diamondback looked at the handling, feel, weight, and geometry of each frame and each size so they could make sure every product has the signature Diamondback feel. Then Diamondback does conceptual sketches, 3D Modeling, and Finite Element Analysis (FEA) before they even make the first steel mold. They set clear and concise goals to make the Podium a world-class frame and they strive to make an already incredible product…better. Diamondback feels that only after going through all these long, tedious processes that this is the only way to create a high performance racing bicycle worthy of the Podium badge.

  • Continuous Fiber – Diamondback’s Continuous Fiber Technology uses full-length carbon strands to manufacture the fork that extend from the top of the steer tube to the bottom of the drop outs. Using that same AMMP technology employed in the Podium frame, they’ve created one of the stiffest forks available. With a lower integrated crown race that’s completely carbon, they’ve eliminated the need for a separate aluminum race. This makes the overall system lighter, stronger and more responsive.
  • Tapered Head Tube – 1.5 Tapered head tube provides front end torsional stiffness for precise steering and control.
  • Compliant Stays – Seat tube and seat stays are designed to work together to produce an optimally compliant ride.
  • Pressfit 30 –An oversized BB shell coupled with a larger down tube and chain stays provides increased rigidity for out-of-the saddle-sprinting, maximum acceleration, and optimal efficiency.
  • Closed Circuit Cabling – Closed Circuit Cable routing provides a clean, uncluttered, and sleek finish to the frame.
  • Replaceable Front Derailleur Hanger – lightweight and easy to mount in the correct position… every time.
Pedals are an important component on a bike, and highly dependent on a rider's style. As most bikes do not come with pedals, be sure to have a look at our selection of road pedals before checking out. They are listed here.

My bike hasn't been the best purchase I've made, but I guess I've gotten what I paid for. Pros: comfortable ride with carbon frame; smooth and quiet gear changing with Shimano 105. Cons: Wheels not true out of box; extremely loud and annoying cable noise when braking and riding over over rough roads; bike came pre-built, but front derailleur loosened up on second ride and slipped into crank.

Very happy with the buy so far. I'm 5'11" with about an 18" torso and the 56 fit fine. The stock wheels seem solid so I put those on another commuter bike and put an old bontrager race x lite wheelset on the DB. No major mechanical issues so far - normal drivetrain tuning, greased the headset because it was pretty dry. Handling is great. Solid on the steep curved roads. Climbs really nice; comfortable to stand and crank hard on the uphills. 105 groupset works good. Great buy, don't hesitate; awesome bike at this price.

Those were the words from my LBS that assembled this beauty! They're a Cannondale/Scott dealer and weren't aware Diamondback made road bikes of this caliber. As many noted, there will need to be component upgrades down the road, but out of the box it's much more than i expected. Very solid feeling and the 105 components are smooth. Brakes are much better than I expected. Since this is a 10 speed cassette, know that if you want to go with an 11 at some point it will require a new drive train components and rear wheel or hub at least. Highly recommended!!

Good price, details need to be improved - Sep 02, 2015

First of all, very good value. Frame is light, my XS frame plus components (including 105 pedals) weight just 8 kg. Components are not shining high-end equipments yet they're still enough for rookies (like me). On the other hand, some details of this stuff need to be improved. According to the official introduction, on an XS sized model should be equipped a 400mm handle bar, 300mm seat post and 165mm crank arm. While the actual measure is confusing: a 420mm handle bar, a 350mm seat post and the crank arm length is 170mm...... Overall, this is an affordable entry level road racer with acceptable configs.

Great Bike for the Money - Aug 30, 2015

Great Bike for the money. This is my 2nd bike from Pricepoint to replace the first! Great bike. Stiff frame for fast downhills but not too stiff not to absorb the bumps. Weighing in at about 18.6 lbs, I'm going to upgrade the handlebars, seatpost, cassette and brakes and this thing will be a beast! Very satisfied with the purchase. Thanks Pricepoint.

For the price they let this go, I couldn't be more satisfied. The frame is killer. Like others have mentioned, it leaves a lot to be upgraded, but this is why it was so affordable. It needs nothing to be a ripper. Just ride it. I'm a skinny 6'1 that wears a 32" inseam and the 56 cm fits well. The cockpit feels a little stretched out and I'm not sure if the stem is long or if the funny DB bars hold the hoods out too far. The bars are super basic. They are very thin and are wrapped with a super tight fake leather that does not mesh well with the wide hoods of the 105. The bars will be my first replacement but I'd first recommend putting some corked tape in your cart to re-wrap it thick. These are just the small things to get that fit, you will not be disappointed. It's a stiff frame that somehow soaks up the small chatter well. Light wheelset and this would piss off the guys that spent 8k on their rig.

Best road bike ever. - Jun 11, 2015

I purchased this bike on Feb 2015 from Pricepoint, properly packed everything was perfect on their end. When you see the bike live it's much much better. I have some friends who do not like bikes, they all said : " That's a sexy bike" I agree. Super stiff a little on the heavy side with the stock parts but with some upgrades you have a real race ride. It will hold you up and will not flex when you go uphill and will give you a sweet control on you way down. I have some rich friends over here and they ride Pinarellos and Tarmacs. I've used them but I like my DB better. I ride mostly MTB but this is my first road bike and I guess it will grow up with me but as it comes out of the box it will take you anywhere. Great Bike.

DiamondBack Road Bike? YES!!! - May 17, 2015

Monroe, NC

Let’s start with the obvious, this bike looks great. The on-line photos do not do it justice. As you can see in the photos, the frame is mostly black. The inner fork legs are white, the top of the top tube, the bottom of the down tube, and the inside of the rear triangle are grey. The blue highlights look nice and are a welcome change from all the black and red frames out there. My wife (who is not a bike geek) said, “that is a slick looking bike.” I am a mountain biker that rides road bikes, so I am not a “weight weenie.” I have been riding a steel Bianchi for about 14 years. This bike is 4 to 5 lbs lighter than the Bianchi. The ride is very smooth, fast, and stable, not twitchy at all. I test rode a Cervelo R2 a few months back, and was planning on getting one this summer. The DiamondBack rides as good as, if not better than the R2 and I feel more comfortable on the DB, maybe because of the shorter head tube on the DB. Cervelo touts Future-Proof Cable management allows easy set-up for mechanical, electronic, or hydraulic lines. The Sub 1000 gram DB frame has ports for Di2 if you choose to upgrade. I have read some not so favorable reviews on the Shimano RS-21 wheels. They may not be the lightest wheels, but for every day riding, they work very well. Shimano 105 may not be lightest or the sexiest of gruppos, but it works flawlessly. I was a little concerned about how well the Tekro brakes would perform. I was pleasantly surprised at how well the brakes work. If you want to lighten this bike up a little, it is definitely worthy of upgrades, and at this price there is room left in the budget for upgrades. This is the best cycling deal that I have ever got. This is an awesome deal on an awesome bike. Love it.

1st bike from Price Point (or anyone online, for that matter) so I was a bit concerned as how it would look. Needless to say i was worried over nothing, as they had packed the DiamondBack bike box within their own shipping carton and it arrived flawless! I absolutely love the matte finish and the 105/FSA/Tektro components as well as the Shimano RS21 wheelset were an amazing value, so much so that i'm considering getting another one in my size.

second bike from Pricepoint. well packed, no damage, easy to set up. Diamondback Podium frame is most under-rated in the market. weighs 980gm, stiff, responsive and fork is all carbon light and stiff too. the stock components are ok and worth sticking with the FSA gossamer crank/BB, seatpost/saddle and Shimano 105 (surprisingly smooth and light). Worth upgrading the wheelset (solid but heavy) and cassette primarily. stem/handlebars and brakes are also affordable upgrades (all listed for about $500) and you will have a race-ready bike. Frame has matt finish and looks good. Stock bike weighs 18lb 3oz. upgrades took it below 16lb.
