The Century incorporates cutting edge technologies and features at an affordable price. The redesigned frame uses our Enhanced Performance Geometry, and custom formed and butted aluminum tubes come standard. This results in a ride that's the best of both worlds, compliant and smooth without compromising performance. The component group we chose is up to the task, too: Tektro disc brakes and an 18 speed Shimano drivetrain make this bike stand out even more in its category. For beginning roadies or those who prefer a fatigue-fighting upright riding posture, the Century is an easy choice.

Great Bike!

I got this bike as a gift in April '16. Still have it now (March '18). Do routine work on it, nothing major. I am giving it 4 stars because of the disc brakes, still to this day the squeak every time I apply the brakes. I've tried cleaning them and all that, but nothing has worked. Overall this bike is very well sound and meets all my expectations.

Awesome Entry Level Roadie

Review by Mohawk Mike
Overall Quality

So I recently had a kidney transplant after 2 years on dialysis and 7 years battling kidney failure. I needed to find a physical activity to help with recovery and to keep my new kidney strong, so decided to try cycling. I grew up on beach cruisers and mountain bikes, so a road bike was going to be a huge first step for me. I stumbled upon the Century during the end of year clearance sale and took a chance on purchasing a bike I had never tried before. Admittedly I had buyers remorse a couple days after clicking BUY as I had seen on bike forums that one should try a bike at a local bike shop before a blind purchase. Got the bike and within a hour, I set off on my first ride. Managed to do my regular 10 mile ride and although the riding stance and shifting format took some getting used to, I am back to riding 3 times a week on this bike and it's awesome. It's light, it's solid, and rolls really smooth. The brake system works strong after bedding-in.

get the next model up

Review by the bicycle guy
Overall Quality

i have the bike now since 4 month..
do i like it .. yes
would i buy it again.... ...no
here is what problems i have
in gear 8 and 9 the chain is rubing against the big chainring but i learned to live with it
the bottom bracket is making a strange winding noise under stress , will have to replace it next season
the bartape was not wrapped tight enough came loose, got replaced
the rear wheel started making strange bearing sounds, mechanic had to re grease it
the rotors are slightly warped
the brakepads are dangerous, after first 200miles still no grip/bite ,going down a hill front pulled all the way and it barley slowed me down.. replaced them with koolstop pads now i can almost stop as needed. i am saving for some new calipers with more stopping power..
and last are those useless tires.. they got holes and cuts within less the 2k miles 7 flats.. i expected better from michelin..

now what i like
i like that the seating is not as aggressive as some other companys
also its pretty fast looks good and is a good starting bike
i did get asked if its a e-bike because i do like passing other riders and they are stunned that this db can take on there cervello etc
so spend a lil more get the century1 with the better brakes,better wheels and 105 group-set... i regret that i did not

Awesome bike

Review by Mark

Ok first of all let me tell you about the size of these bikes, they give you a height range, but make sure you check top tube height. I bought based on height and after putting it together, i found out that with the seat post all the way down was just a tad too tall for me. Check stand over height and get the smaller frame that you can straddle safely, so from M i went to the 5'4-5'7 S size frame and i'm 5'9. The M frame just didn't fit me with the stand over height which might be ok but pedal length was a tad long and reach was a tad long. So check those specs before you buy. You really don't want to repack a bike like i did.

Now onto the bike itself. I've been buying Diamondback bikes for over 10 years, first just hardtails, my last bike was a recoil comp and now this Century. When i look at Diamondback bikes, the quality and frame construction design keeps getting better, the quality looks just so awesome now. The paint on the Century is amazing and the new logo on the top is awesome looking and modern. This dark silver metallic paint with a red metallic on the fork looks amazing. The frame design just looks so heavy duty and modern for a road bike, but when you pick this up it's like air, so light so the shimano sora components aren't that bad. The bike comes assembled except for handlebar, pedals, and front rim and seat post. So putting it together is super simple, dont be afraid to ship to your house. This bike needed some brake adjustment as the disc brakes wouldn't stop the bike as they were, which is weird as i have tektro on my recoil comp and the work awesome there. So the option to ship to a bike shop is a nice touch as well. Overall though, all the shimano sora components and frame and rims just make the bike look expensive. Dont miss this sale, it's nice to get a new bike, but it's even nicer when you get it a good deal on it as well!

Great Triathlon Bike

Review by Billy B
Overall Quality

I signed up for a triathlon thinking I would borrow or rent a bike but found the Century .. I was worried because I was so ignorant of what makes a good bike but as soon as I got it I fell in love with it. Just completed my first triathlon and am really happy with the Century it performed great and by far is the best looking ride available. I just upgraded the pedals to Diamondback SPD pedals and find myself riding way more than I thought I would.

Good entry level bike - disappointing brakes

Review by MGRoadie6
Overall Quality

I purchased this bike in late winter and was very pleased with the quality of the frame and look of the bike. It rides well, comfortable and shifting is decent. Where this bike is lacking is in the braking. It took me a while to get rid of the disc brake rubbing and they are quite louder than I expected. The rear brake barely works. I can be holding the brake lever all the way down and it will not take the bike to a complete stop. I am sure this can be adjusted by bringing to a local shop, however this is not something I expected after just a few rides. Overall, I really enjoy the bike (when not having to use the brakes) and will look into upgrading the tektro lyra disc brakes to a better quality braking system.
