If big miles are your thing, you'll love the 2014 Diamondback Century 5 Carbon road bike. The Century 5 combines high-performance engineering, comfort, and high-technology into one package that won't disappoint riders who don't want to sacrifice comfort in the name of speed, but also want performance that can keep up with even the meanest of superbikes. <p>The backbone of the Century 5 is the frame made from Diamondback's excellent Advanced Tube to Tube (ATT) carbon fiber construction. The geometry of this bike is all about efficiency and endurance, and utilizes Diamondback's proprietary Enhanced Performance Geometry. Thanks to the carbon construction, it has the same performance characteristics as their road race bikes, thanks to its stiff, lightweight construction, but with a taller headtube and more relaxed fell that's easier on the back and neck. The BB386 bottom bracket makes pedaling super efficient, and a carbon fiber frame gives you more confidence cornering and descending.<p> <p>But what really makes the Century 5 stand out is the component package. The Century 5 is outfitted with Shimano's all-new Ultegra 6800 11-speed shifting system. Not only do you get an extra 11th gear, but improved front derailleur function and braking performance as well. The newly redesigned front derailleur has improved mechanical advantage at approaches the performance of electronic shifting for easy, accurate performance, especially under load. For 6800 Shimano also redesigned the lever ergonomics for improved comfort and performance, especially over long distaces<p> <p>Rounding out the build is a set of Shimano RS-21 clincher wheels, for lightweight performance, a Prologo Scratch Pro saddle with lightweight titanium rails, and a Diamondback carbon fiber seatpost to help dampen road vibrations.<p>
