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 BB386—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 2014 Diamondback Steilacoom RCX Pro 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 Pro Spec Fully Butted 7005 Alloy Competition Cyclocross frame with formed top tube and an integrated headtube. The frame, both light and durable, is what most 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 a DBCX Carbon fork. With a carbon steerer and clearance enough for larger tires and fenders, this fork helps to save weight and provides strength up front for exceptionally responsive steering capabilities.
Component setup comes in with an impressive SRAM build. 11spd 1070 cassette, chain, Force22 derailleurs and doubletap shifters. SRAM’s team issue Compact crankset with BB386 technology, offers a light weight and extremely stiff pedaling platform. Once you’re up to speed, the TRP Revox V-brakes will provide the stopping power you need.
Easton EA70 SL rims are serious, super light rims laced to Easton EA70 Hubs and wrapped with Michelin Cyclocross Mud 2 700×30c tires. Gluttons for punishment, these wheels are sure to see you through any situation.
The cockpit, outfitted with FSA SLK carbon handlebars, stem, seatpost, and topped off with the WTB Silverado Team saddle, is laden with quality. You can admit it, this bike is a stone cold stunner.
Whether you are looking for a true dedicated and capable cross bike for the season or are in search of the ultimate commuter, we’re not sure how you could do better than this.
The 2014 Steilacoom RCX Pro comes in a high polish raw finish in four different sizes: 50cm, 53cm, 56cm, 59cm.
