Review
The Diamondback Haanjo Alternative is a road bike which can be used for commuting inside the city, hitting the gravel and for weekend rides. The bike comes with a lightweight alloy frame which makes it fairly easy to handle. The Shimano Sora shifters are nice and smooth and offer efficient gear shifting. It comes with disc brakes which function well and provide ample braking power to stop the bike in time.
The bike does not ship assembled and it is recommended to take to your local bike shop to get it set up properly. The gears, brakes and hubs require some tuning before you start riding it. Ride quality offered by this bike is extremely smooth and immense fun. The bike has been designed with Diamonback’s Enhanced Performance Geometry which offers a comfortable ride.
Overall, the bike performs equally well on the gravel as well as on the streets. Each component of this bike does its work fairly well. The wheels are pretty strong and offer durability. The tires are also ready to take on the muddy roads and the gravel. The bike comes at a reasonable price and if you are looking for a multi-utility bicycle which offers  smooth ride quality and has the ability to handle the gravel efficiently, this one can be your perfect choice.
