Looks great except for the wires hanging on the extensions - what's up with that?

i knew someone would call me out on that. reason is, the possibility of turning the shifters inwards, so i left them loose for now...

So does the Dimond beam have any shock absorption to it like the Softrides did? or does it just look awesome?

Just got this back from the paint shop.
Shared it on social media but figured it would be appreciated here.

From Dimond's Director of Engineering in another thread: I saw quite a bit of discussion about saddle ‘suspension’ so I’d like to offer info here as well. We designed the top tube to be rigid. On a size medium frame there is 0.065mm of flex per kg on the saddle. For a 75kg person, the saddle would drop about 4-5mm if they put all of their weight on it. The sensation while riding feels quite smooth.

What is the lowest saddle height you can get to on a size small from centre of bb to the top of the saddle with a 45mm 'stack" (by that I mean the distance from center of rail to top of saddle surface...most saddles seems to be 4-5 cm). I need this number to be 67.5 cm....I could get away with 68, but then it eliminates some saddles with higher stack.

thanks.

look at my bike

71cm of saddle height. (my slr as 3.4mm stack)

i could 100% sure drop the seat post 5cm. (i think it can be drop more but i would have to ask the engineer about it to be sound...)

so 71- 5 +1.1 = 67.1cm for your saddle height. This dosnt include the beam deflection once your on the bike so most people ride a little higher saddles to adjust for this.

I think that number would change in the dynamic forces of riding and hitting bumps, I just don't know how to even come close to calculating it.

Damn, that's amazing. With a bike that beautiful I'd be afraid to actually race it and have some dork gouge it up when they rack their MTB next to it. Have you had your alarm system installed yet?

Thank you. Alarm system installed, but the most interesting part was trying to convince the insurance company the value of the bike...

So I think it may be time to sell the Shiv and pick up a Dimond. I keep drooling on my keyboard when I look at this thread.

Question for those running Di2. Where are you putting the battery and what battery are you using??

In the bike shown it uses the cylindrical battery and it is double-sided-taped to the inside of the beam just behind the headttube. This seems to work out pretty well.

Battery and D-fly are in the beam. I could get the 5-port junction in there too if I get longer e-tube cables from the front shifters. For now, it's in the bento.

For you guys on the small frame, what is your pad reach (Horizontal distance from center of BB to center of middle of your aerobar pads) and what length stem are you using? I currently ride a 51cm P2 and trying to figure out if a small will fit me length wise.

Thanks,
