Diamondback shared an exclusive look at the 2012 Dream Liner, a slope style mountain bike.
The 2012 Diamondback Dream Liner was refined and tested for years, and is set to launch at the end of next year for 2012. Taking a brief glance, you can see the Dream Liner received inspiration from the Mission platform, the only difference in frame between the two is the Dream Liner uses a more compact frame and 4 inches of travel.
Component specifications are not dialed in at this point, but a ton of detail went into the frame, using a knuckle box platform based around the belt crank, cradle shock protected, and single pivot full bar design. Its unique ingenuity enables a low leverage ratio plus low compact design for a better center of gravity and a tighter feel.
After Diamondback finished the 2012 Dream Liner frame, they sent all the numbers to Fox. Fox calibrated the shock to fit the Dream Liner, adding to pedal efficiency.
Other additions include a better bottom out resistance, hi tensile tubing, and a 1.5 to 1 1/8 tapered headtube providing the 2012 Diamondback Dream Liner more strength and stiffness.
