Diamondback Haanjo Comp Complete Bike $1,500.00
Conquer the gravel.
Gravel road racing is gaining popularity. But what type of bike is best suited for gravel? Well, you'll see every concoction imaginable on the course — from road bikes to mountain bikes, and even beach cruisers. Diamondback's Haanjo Comp combines the best of road, mountain, and cyclocross designs into an economical, yet race-ready bike that'll have you cruising the course and town with equal prowess.
First and foremost, the things to think about when designing a gravel road bike are stability and endurance. After all, gravel is tricky. It zaps energy from your legs and beats up your core. Add ruts into the equation, and you'll quickly be wishing for a comfortable bike. The Haanjo features Diamondback's Enhanced Performance Geometry, which features a slightly higher head tube in order to reduce strain on your lower back while you're stretched over the hoods. This also improves the fit for riders with less flexibility and pelvic rotation. The 70-degree head tube is even more slack than most cyclocross bikes, which creates more stability and easier handling.
The frame itself was constructed from 6061-T6 butted aluminum. What's a butted frame? Well, when tubes are butted, rather than featuring a continuous wall thickness, the ends of the tubes are given varying widths. This, in turn, creates a stronger frame. And although it sounds counter-intuitive to remove metal in order to increase strength, frames usually fail at the joints, and butted construction decreases the stress concentration in the joints. And when you factor in Diamondback's Carbon Disc Road fork, you have the perfect gravel road bike. But, not wanting the Haanjo Comp to be a one-trick pony, Diamondback also added rack and fender mounts. So, the Haanjo is completely ready for either racing, commuting, or touring.
Shimano's 105 component package is at the heart of the Haanjo Comp, positioned at the front derailleur, rear derailleur, and shifters. The bike is driven by a 46/36t FSA Gossamer Pro Cross BB386 crankset, which has been combined with a Tiagra CS-4600 12-25t cassette and a Shimano 105 chain. You ride on Diamondback's new DB Equation CX wheels, which have been cased in WTB All Terrain 700c x 32mm tires. Meanwhile, stopping power is provided by TRP HYRD cable actuated disc brakes with a 160mm front rotor and a 140mm rotor at the rear. And lastly, the cockpit features a full array of Diamondback's DBR stem, handlebar, and seatpost, while you'll sit comfortably on a WTB Valcon Race saddle.
The Diamondback Haanjo Comp Complete Bike is available in the color Black and in the sizes 50cm, 53cm, 56cm, and 59cm.

What is the minimum tire size these rims...
What is the minimum tire size these rims will take? Will it work with 28mm or even 25mm?
Is it possible to mount a speed/cadence sensor? The brake cable runs on top of that rear stay.
It is not recommended to run below a 28mm tire as these are wider rims to except larger width tires. 28mm is kind of stretching the limits as well and you may find some difficulties in mounting the system.
To answer the other question, depending on your speed and cadence system you can put in on either chain stay above or below the cabeling. I hope this answers your questions and if not feel free to contact me at my email address:
See how Ken Meidell makes the Haanjo Comp part of his daily routine. Pretty cool video that DB put together with OR.

whats your return policy on bikes?...say if I ordered it it and the fit wasnt right.
Our return policy is for bikes is the same as our other products. If the bike is in new condition, unused, and with original packaging, we can take it back for a full refund. In this way, if you are working with a fitter and they decide that it just wont work, you're covered. Even if you ride the bike, we accept returns upto 90 days from the date of purchase for a store credit. In both cases, the customer is responsible for the return shipping, but you certainly do have some recourse if it's not exactly what you need.
Commuter or Weekend Warrior Gravel Bike!

Got this bike when it first came out and love it. While it is on the heavy side for a road bike, it's a blast for riding dirt roads, and even jumping off on the trails. I used to ride dirt roads on my road bikes, but always found myself soft pedaling as I came up on loose gravel or washboards. With the Hanjo Comp and it's cross-like tires, I just blow through them.
The main reason I bought this bike though was for commuting. I've been looking for a drop-bar / road / cx bike with mounts, and this one was right in the price sweet spot.
The Hanjo's geometry is definitely on the side of a comfort road bike / cross bike vs. a performance road bike. It puts the rider up pretty high when in the hoods. I actually find myself more comfortable in the drops, which I'm not used to!
Really glad I added this one to my collection. Again, if you're into having fun, and blasting through dirt roads, and jumping in and out of trails, this bike's for you. If you want a solid 15-20 mile commuter bike, this is for you. If you're planning on racing, get a pure road bike.

What is the maximum tire size that will fit on bike? Can it take a 38 or 40mm tire?
35mm tires will fit with no problems. You can get a 38mm or 40mm in the frame and fork also, but you would not be able to also fit fenders. If you have any questions, feel free to contact me. firstname.lastname@example.org
good question! It's one I actually had before I ordered the bike as well. 32mm is what comes with the bike. I tried to get a 42mm on the rear, and it won't fit -- rubs a little bit. I'd say don't go larger than 38mm to be safe. The fork can definitely handle a 42mm, and can probably go wider if you want, but not sure how much good that does if you can't go that wide on the back.
Just as an FYI -- Reynolds 29er wheels do fit on this bike. I'm using them now. Just be aware that 32mm tires are too narrow for them per the companies recommendations. That said, I've been using 32mm tires on them anyways, and don't have any issues, but I'm not really pushing the limits on this bike.
