From sand pits to the coffee shop.

Diamondback's Haanjo line was made for cyclists who want a bike that's up for wearing multiple hats — whether it's the only bike in their garage or it's joining a large, boisterous family of frames. The Haanjo Trail Ultegra Complete Bike offers a strong build kit to match its distinction as the top-of-the-line Haanjo model, with geometry that will keep you comfortable over long days in the saddle. Use it for veering off onto gravel on your next road ride or take it to your next 'cross race, then ride it through town to brunch the next morning.

Whether you're heading to the coffee shop or going on an all-day gravel ride, the Haanjo Trail's more relaxed endurance geometry makes the bike suited to long days in the saddle more than its twitchy, race-oriented counterparts. Treated 6061-T6 aluminum gives the frame an ideal blend of lightness with strength, while the carbon fork and tapered head tube work to absorb road vibrations for smooth steering and less chatter through variable surfaces.

Diamondback doesn't skimp on the componentry that matters, especially in this model, as it includes HED Tomcat Disc wheels with Kenda Happy Medium tires to adapt the bike to a variety of terrain, along with Shimano's smooth, lightweight Ultegra 11-speed drivetrain. Enjoy the reassurance provided by Shimano hydraulic disc brakes that promise to provide dependable stopping power in less than ideal conditions on the road or trail. If you're looking to get out on your bike more often, in more conditions, the Haanjo Trail is certainly up for the job.

good where it counts

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I have only had the bike for a few weeks, but i'll share my initial impressions: The bike is really good, but if you put in another $100 after it arrives, it can be amazing.

The hydraulic disc brakes are phenomenal. I am using this to commute in rainy Seattle on a hilly route, and will have a hard time going back to rim brakes. I'm a bit of a curmudgeon and think that 9 speed was more than enough and there's no need for the delicate nature of 11 speed, but the shifting is precise, effortless, and responsive. The ultegra group certainly lives up to its name with this iteration.

The diamondback frame is pretty nice too. I get the feeling that it's built to take some abuse, but that it's also engineered to be stiff and light. The downtube cable-routing is nice, and it looks clean. I didn't unbuild it to weigh it, but I think the frame is light enough that it's certainly not what's slowing you down.

The tires, on the other hand, are slowing you down. After my first couple rides, I almost returned the bike because it felt sluggish and heavy; like riding through molasses; my $200 road bike with a creaky bottom bracket was more fun to ride. I decided I would first try some used tires (I found some 32c Panaracers t-servs) from my local bike shop. What a difference! The switch shaved 135 g from each wheel (where it counts the most), and now the bike is a joy to ride. There is still plenty of cushion for riding gravel and the occasional pothole/root bump, but now the bike just scampers up the hills for me. If your riding is more dirt-focused, i'm sure you could go with any 32c cross tire and have a similar effect. I also switched the seatpost out for a better fit, put on my personal saddle preference, and am going to keep my eye out for a lighter set of cranks since the stock ones are really heavy. Without the tires on, the wheels were about as light as i'd want for a bike made to play in the dirt. Mine didn't do any of the squeeling mentioned by another reviewer.

I'll reiterate the other review to look over the build when you get it. Mine had a few loose bolts and a half-peeled sticker on the steerer tube that creaked against the inside of the head tube with every turn. It's not a big deal, but the bike does not come with pedals (in case you were planning to ride it straight out of the box). The packing/shipping job done by backcountry was otherwise top notch.

I'm 5'7 and the 53 cm is as large a bike as i'd be comfortable riding. I usually ride a 54-54.5 cm in a classic geometry.

Awesome build for the price

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

I picked this bike up after i realized my HT29'er isn't suiting my ride style coming from road racing. After an easy assembly i was off riding to my gravel off-season stomping grounds within Boston. This bike is made for this type of terrain. Short, punchy, gravely climbs were all PR'd with not much effort.



Coming from Dura Ace, the Ultegra shifting was excellent and responsive, although i like to feel a definitive "click" and these felt a little squishy and soft. The stock bar tape is fantastic and bar shape, although a little wide for my liking, is also very comfortable.



Frame construction was OK. Welds are not beautiful and the bike is not the lightest in the world but once you turn off pavement i think weight is slightly negated.



As mentioned by other reviewers, the ride is definitely plush. I'd credit that to wider-than-normal tires used for CX. I think I'll pick up a narrower tire and go tubeless for racing.



Only changes i made to stock is a carbon seatpost that i had laying around shed a few grams but probably not much of a performance increase.



Overall i'd recommend this bike to anyone looking for a solid commuter / off-road machine coming from a road background.

Awesome build for the price

Great rig but poor quality crank

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I bought last years and have over 1000 miles of gravel under its wheels so far. Comfy ride and very responsive out of the saddle. Nice that it now has fluid brakes at this price. Only complaint is that after changing pedals out due to what I thought was a bent spindle I discovered the left FSA crank was threaded crooker. No response from Competitive Cyclist on email about the problem so I will post a review. Recommend you check your mail order bike carefully before you keep it for too long.

Can't go wrong here!

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I have about 350+ miles on this bike so far. I commute on this, along with road, rail trails, and gravel riding.

Only thing worth replacing is the seat and post. Uncomfortable and portly. The stock handlebars are the nicest I have ever tried, excellent shape and very comfortable.

Brakes are exceptional, handling is good, and ride is plush. I am very happy I didn't spend 2x the price on a similar gravel style bike from another manufacturer. Very comfortable ride.

Stock wheels are nice. They have tape installed for going tubeless. The first 10 miles they squealed like hell, I think it was the bearing seals. I put a drop of lube on them and it at least quieted down so I didn't look like a total doofus. I haven't heard any squeal in the last 150 or so miles so I think they're broken in now. I ride at 45psi in gravel and 70psi on pavement. The rear tire is wearing pretty quick but the tires grip well and I'll probably rotate then replace them with the exact same 120 tpi Kenda model once fully worn out.

I think I have taken my road bike out twice in the last month since I got the Haanjo Trail. It's really that much fun. Make no mistake though, the road bike is still faster in the same paved segments. It is fun to seek out the gravel and seasonal roads here in upstate NY and not be afraid to bomb down them.

Unanswered Question

Hello there, I need to know the specific dimensions for the bike box. Thanks!

Rack/fender mounts on the Haanjo?
Thanks

Hey Steve,

The Haanjo Trail has mounts for a rack and fenders. I have the Haanjo Metro Plus as my commuter bike and absolutely love it. Check out the picture below and you can see the mounting points pretty clearly. Feel free to shoot me any additional questions directly on Diamondback Bikes or contact me if you are interested in setting up an order.

There are no eyelets on the front fork, so for front fenders you have to make do with the single through-hole at the top of the fork. Not the best solution. There is a single eyelet for rack and fender on each of the seat stays.
