    Diamondback & FOCUS Bikes

    I don't know, is it just me or has FOCUS bikes copied to the T, the Knucklebox suspension. All of Focus' full sus bikes look just like the Sortie with different colors. Are these companies related somehow? Diamondback & FOCUS Bikes-focus-t.pngDiamondback & FOCUS Bikes-focus-thunder-2.pngDiamondback & FOCUS Bikes-db_13_sortieblack_29r.jpg

    I think the frames are the same. Probably license the design from the same taiwanese manufacturer. I believe Derby Cycle use to own both brands, so there probably was some synergy at that time.

    Yeah they both look too similar to ignore.
