  • Claimed weights: Frame: 1030 grams, Fork: 380 grams. Actual total w/o pedals: 7460 grams (16lbs 7 oz)
  • Price: $2295
  • Oversize and tapered 1.25/1.5″ fork

Michael and David Diamond are the brains behind the new Diamond Bicycles DM-1 Pro. They’ve put together a great value with top-notch components and an impressive frame. Speaking of value, this Ultegra-equipped bike sells for $2295; compare this to a Trek Madone 6.2, which retails for nearly $4200 (and has a lower quality Shimano 105 cassette), and you can see this is a good value for the money.
