    Caution;  Merge;  Workers Ahead! 2013 Diamond Overdrive Comp 29er frame swap

    Hey,

    Im new to biking but no stranger to mechanics, but i have some questions.

    I just bought a 2013 Diamondback overdrive Comp 29er from Promotive.com, and I broke the derailler hanger. Being that im stationed overseas Its proving impossible to find the hanger. I am at the point now where I am looking to buy a Diamondback(or other) frame that is can accept a direct mount rear derailleur.

    Can I swap my components from my Overdrive Comp to another Diamondback frame? ( If so which ones)

    Are there any special tools ill need?

    What is the difficulty level?

    Thanks in advance!

    - David

    Im thinking this could be it.
    It looks similar.
    Id like to find someone who has replaced theirs and ask them what they bought. LOL

    I contacted DB and they said that the dealers wont have it in stock, they will have to request a special order direct from DB...
