We all know how exciting that first tug on a line can feel, once we realize that it definitely wasn't a piece of seaweed or a rock, but an insistent jerk that could only have been delivered by a living, breathing creature. Evoking thoughts of long days in the sun, fighting and pulling to bring a fish to the surface, sometimes only to throw it back, Diamondback's Catch One Complete Mountain Bike brings that same thrill of the chase to the trails.

With such a capable frame design, Diamondback decided it was time for a serious suspension upgrade. Its all new Level Link suspension looks to seriously change the ride quality of the brand's bikes by introducing a short link, four bar system that isolates pedaling forces from travel. This translates to impacts being able to act on the system even while you're pedaling, so you get a smooth ride on ...
