Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
While Diamondback may not be the first brand that comes to your mind when thinking about road bikes, they did an excellent job on this frame.
Fit - with slightly less aggressive geo than a full fledged race bike, this frame has all day comfort while still maintaining quick handling and incredible stability on descents.
Ride - the Podium frame does a great job with balancing performance and comfort. While the frame didn't have superbike acceleration, it was quick to respond when getting on the pedals and turning the bike. Generally, I'd expect a bike with this type of response to be less compliant than the bike actually was, which ultimate made this frame a great balance of performance and all-day comfort.
