Strengths:    The defining characteristic of the Basso Diamante is it's handling. Tapered steerer and MASSIVE tubing make this, hands down, the best handling bike out there. Incredible stiffness. This bike responds to power with an immediacy I've never before experienced.

Weaknesses: Weighs a little more than claimed for the 58, but you'll forget about it the instant you first turn a pedal in anger.

Bottom Line:
In my opinion, a great bike is one that you don't notice. The 2012 Basso Diamante is one of the few bikes in the world that rides just as well as you imagine it does. It simply disappears beneath you. It's a loyal companion on long rides, and a cunning wing-man in the sprints, urging you through gaps. It gives you the confidence to ride that razor-thin inside line in crits; the one no one else dared take. Ultimately, I can't imagine going back to anything else.
