Today we are highlighting item Diamondback Mason Pro Bike 2014, one of our most requested Mountain Bikes. A great gift brought to you by Diamondback. Save a whopping $300! Wow, I like that We give it 4 out of 5 stars.
As 29er bikes become more prevelant, bike companies continue to pushthe envelope with new designs for the 29er market. Located in the
Pacific Northwest, Diamondback needed a 29inch offering that was a bitmore capable of handling local terrain that can often be aggressive ifnot also wet and muddy. Enter the Mason Pro All Mountain hardtail. Thisrig is slack and low slung?meant for today’s shredder who wantsefficiency on the pedal uphill but also the freedom to charge down theother side with aggressiveness.
The Mason Pro features an All Mountain 6061-T6 Weapons Grade Aluminumframe with a formed top tube, a formed and butted down tube, a taperedhead tube, a direct mount front derailleur mount, ISCG tabs and a142?12mm Maxle drop out.
Loading up the front end is a Fox 34 TALAS 29 CTD air fork, 140mm /110mm travel, open cartridge, with external rebound, butted alloy 1.5tapered steerer, 34mm Easton aluminum stanchions, magnesium lowers,w/QR15 thru axle. This also lends to a slack, 66.5 degree head angle.
Combine this with 433mm/ 17.05 long chain stays and you can clearlysee where this is going. This keeps the bike maneuverable, easy tomanipulate in downhill and aired out sections, and easier to get thefront end of the bike up with the slack head angle. Because the longtravel fork lifts the front end of the bike up pretty high, Diamondbackdesigned a formed, low top tube for better clearance over the bike.
WTB I-23 29 32h single eyelet double wall disc specific rims are lacedto 32h sealed cartridge bearing hubs and SRAM Maxle QR for a stout yetlight weight wheelset. Some benefits of a 29? wheel include:
Angle of Attack ? Largerwheels decrease your angle of attack by allowing you to roll overobstacles easier and faster. Bigger wheel = smaller obstacle.
Momentum ? A largerwheel enables one to carry momentum easier though obstacles.
Surface Contact ?29?wheels are less prone to sinking in soft material such as sand andmud due to the larger contact patch causing lower ground pressure….
