If you are somebody who is searching for a bike to commute to your workplace or getting some exercise after coming home from work, the brand new Century 2 Road Bike will really work for you. The main feature that makes it stand out from the pack is its Enhanced Performance Geometry.
Enhanced Performance Geometry focuses on redressing the most common issues faced by bike riders while riding. The headtubes have been designed to be taller which reduces the exerted stress on the rider’s neck and back. This approach also provides a better fit for those who have a marginally less core stability and/or pelvic rotation.
The bike comes with a 7005 custom butted aluminium frame. Carbon fibres are the latest fad and yes, they are light and strong. But aluminium frame is an excellent, cost-effective alternative to carbon fibres. Aluminium is cheap and extremely lightweight and it is these features which help aluminium to sustain its positions as the best possible alternative to carbon fibres.
The bike comes equipped with Custom Butted DBR Alloy EPG (Enhanced Performance Gerometry) frame with taper headtube; DB Road Podium Performance Carbon with tapered 1.5 alloy steerer and Magnesium crown; FSA Omega Compact BB30 crankeset and Sealed Cartridge Bottom Brackets.
Shimano105 dual control 10 speed shifters along with Shimano 105 front derailleur (31.8) and Shimano 105 rear derailleur make the shifting smoother and faster and prepares the bike for all terrains by providing a wide gear-range.
The other components that make up the bike are : Shimano105 dual control 10 speed brake levers; Tetkro R540 dual pivot brakes; Shimano CS-4600Tiagra (12-30 ft.) 10 speed Cassette; 20h frt by 24 h rims; Michelin Dynamic Sport 700x25C tires; DBR drop bar road handlebar (31.8), DBR 3D forged Stem (31.8, +/- 7 degrees); Alloy DBR Performance seatpost with micro adjust (27.2 millimetres);

The Century 2 Diamond Bi-cycle has been designed aiming to deliver a comfortable experience to its riders. It comes with a Custom Butted DBR Frameset which plays its part well in restricting the weight of the bike. Weighing only 31.pounds, this bike is really easy to handle and offers an extremely smooth ride. The looks of the bike are slick and gives off a sporty vibe.
Although not much user reviews are available at this moment which might serve as key performance indicators, by looking at the components used, it looks like that the bike has the potential to deliver on its promises.
