Diamondback Podium

The Diamondback Podium is the official bike of top pro racing US team Optum KBS. For 2015 all their carbon road bikes, from top tier down to entree level, will be using the same frame. This was a 2014 model I got from Performance Bikes, I completely gutted the frame with new parts from another bike I own. With the new saddle and seatpost (shown in the other pictures) the bike weighs 13.3 pounds. SRAM red 10 spd groupset.

Yeah, they're really more known for their mountain bikes. This is the frame that got them in the game.
