    2013 DB Overdrive upgrades

    I'm updating my 2013 Diamondback Overdrive. Some people may ask why why put $$$ into what some would call a low end 29er? Because I like customizing the bike my way and love the challenge! Yes I know, I'll have much more into the bike than it's worth but I am not going to sell this bike and it's more than a bike to me and that's worth more to me. Hope some can understand that.

    With that said, here is what's going to happen this month!

    Breaks

    • AVID Speed Dial 7 Break Levers, Black
    • AVID BB7 Mountain Disc with G3 160mm Rotors
    • Jagwire Red Zone Disc Brake Pads
    • Jagwire Mountain Pro Brake Kit, Ergon Green


    Drivetrain

    • SRAM X0 9-Speed Twister Shifters
    • SRAM X7 9 Speed Rear Derailleur
    • SRAM PowerGlide 990 9 Speed Cassette (11-34t) Red
    • SRAM PowerChain 971
    • Jagwire Mountain Pro Derailleur Kit, Ergon Green


    Handlebar/Stem

    • Truvativ Stylo T40 riser bar 15x700mm. Black/Red
    • Truvativ Stylo T40 Stem 90mm, white
    • ERGON GS3-L Race, Black


    Other

    • Rokform v3 BikeMount Red w/RokBed v3 S4 Case
    • Jagwire Aluminum Ferrule Kit, Red
    • Red Anodized Aluminum Presta Valve Caps


    The BB7's and SD7 levers are coming from China via Ebay, hope they will be here some time next week. Every thing else should be here this week. I'll post pictures and up dates as things move along.

    Most everything is SRAM, don't want to mix things up. Got the BB7's in today and the look good. Wasn't sure about buying them off Ebay from someone in China but the are real!

    Oh I see well good for you

    I recommend the rockshox xc32 with poploc remote for the fork. It's great I got it on my overdrive

    Got every thing in and will be working on getting it all installed soon. The only problem so far is the rear hub is 8 speed hub, was hoping it was a 9 speed with a spacer but no spacer. Will have to look at new wheels or at lease rebuilding the rear wheel with a new hub.

    Love the new BB7'S! pic below, old Tektro Novela break and pad (left) and the new Avid BB7 and Avid pad (right).

    Replaced the stock Avid pads with Jagwire Red Zone Disc Brake Pads.

    We're going to need picks when you've got everything strapped on.
