To put it simply: the Century 2 is at home on the road. Designed to be ridden all day, every day, the aluminum frame features our Enhanced Performance Geometry. With a slightly taller headtube than a road race bike, it helps the rider maintain a more upright, less fatiguing body position. With discomfort out of the way you’re guaranteed to enjoy every part of your ride more—the Century 2 delivers. Shimano Ultegra 22speed drivetrain, hydraulic disc brakes, and 28c Michelin tires on HED wheels complement the bike’s platform and reinforce its performance. For many of us, riding 100 miles is an exercise in surviving. The Century 2 turns those long rides into something to look forward to, not to dread. If you’re an endurance rider or someone that prefers a more upright riding posture, this bike does not disappoint. This bike is part of the new Diamondback Ready Ride Program. Hand built and shipped ride ready in a few easy steps! Diamondback Ready Ride bikes eliminate the usual hassle of tedious at-home bike assembly, an often-ignored process that can take hours. Our program allows you to spend less time assembling your new bike and more time riding it. Ready Ride bikes are hand-built nearly to completion and shipped straight to you. All you need to do is put on the front wheel, seat, and pedals. Yes, the brakes are dialed in and the derailleurs are adjusted: just pump up the tires and go!
