Steilacoom RCX

At home in some of the wettest, muddiest, gnarliest terrain in the world, we know a thing or two about what it takes to make a mean cyclocross bike: one that sheds mud, ports easy and crushes any root or rock in its path. We understand that a light and stiff platform—via BB30—equates to more acceleration and control while out of the saddle. We also know that a flatter top tube for easy portage and the right geometry are essential to winning any race.

The 2012 Diamondback Steilacoom RCX is the perfect embodiment of everything Northwest. It’s well-equipped to tackle any single track, mud field, sand pit, staircase, hurdle or inclement weather between the starting gate and the finish line. At the core is the DBR CX Fully Butted 7005 Alloy Competition Cyclocross frame with formed top tube and an integrated headtube. The frame is light and durable which is something that we look for in a cross bike. The formed top tube features a flat bottom for easy portage over any hurdle.

Paired well with the frame is an Easton EC-70X Carbon fork that’s exceptionally strong and stiff. With an alloy steerer and clearance for larger tires and fenders, the fork is a versatile and exceptional addition.

Component pairing comes in hot and proper with a Shimano 105 build including cassette, chain, front and rear derailleur and dual control 10spd brake lever/shifters which are linked to Avid Shorty 4 canti’s to stop ya on the drop of a dime. The FSA Gossamer PRO Cross crankset is standard as far as cross cranks are concerned and the BB30 technology offers a light weight and exceptionally stiff pedaling platform. For the 46t & 36t double set.

Equation CX20 cross rims are light and stiff and look amazing with white spokes laced to sealed cartridge bearing hubs. Michelin Cyclocross Mud 2 700×30c tires create a grippy equation for any situation.

DBR drop bars and a DBR 3D forged stem offer precise and accurate steering while the DBR Performance Micro Adjust alloy Post (27.2mm) supports a WTB VALCON Race saddle for maximum comfort with race friendly size and weight in mind.

The 2012 Steilacoom RCX is blacked out and comes in 4 sizes: 50cm, 53cm, 56cm, 59cm.

Whether you are looking for a true dedicated and capable cross bike for the season or are simply looking for an adept and stable commuter, you’ve ain’t got no reason to look further.
