Diamondback Haanjo Gravel Road Bike — 2016
Diamondback Haanjo 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 delivers both. It isn’t everyday you find a bike that combines performance and fun and, yes, even practicality in a single design . But the DB Haanjo is that bike. 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 translates into 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 is equipped with some of Shimano’s components for the kind of rugged dependability you want on your gravel-grinder adventure or cross-town commute. Shimano Sora 9-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, drives you across pavement or trail. A DB Eldorado saddle comfortably supports you on your rides, and DB Equation CX disc-brake wheels provide a durable set of wheels that roll easily on unimproved country roads or an underfunded city boulevard. The Avid BB5 mechanical disc brakes give you all-weather stopping power. 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 flat-bar handlebars, DB 3D forged stem with a +/-7 rise, a DBR Performance micro-adjust alloy seatpost, and 700x 40 tires make the Haanjo a solid performer on any ride.
