Until I got this bike, I had only ridden on the road.
This bike started as my full-fendered winter road bike, but the 32mm road tires offered enough traction on shakier ground that I could explore rougher roads. Once I started riding off-road, I couldn't stop. I maxed out the tire clearance and opted for knobbier tires.
This bike is my do-it-all-and-have-fun bike. I tour, race, and explore on this bike and it gives me the ability to get creative with my rides. Whether it's a rip through the mountain bike single-track in Stanley Park, or an eleven hour training ride to and from Whistler on the Sea2Sky trail, my Diverge doesn't quit.
