Build quality

This exercise bike has an exceptional build quality. It seems as though the Diamondback team really did think of everything when designing this bike. The frame is constructed with high-tensile steel and has an industrial-grade powder paint coating to make it more resistant to corrosion. The plastics featured in its design are chemical-resistant PVC and ABS.

Topping it off is its heavy-duty pedal cranks, multi-position handlebars and built-in water bottle cage & storage compartment. If you aren’t satisfied with the standard seat you can purchase a custom bike seat from your local cycle shop free from worry that it won’t be compatible.
