The defining feature of the Diamond Frame bike design is the top tube.
Note that in our design, the top tube is perfectly horizontal which is a distinguishable feature for Peace Bicycles. Also, with a short front tube, the frame geometry appears almost triangular which streamlines the overall design and makes the bike look sportier.
Diamond frame bicycles are becoming more and more popular with women who are looking for something edgier.
While they tend to be harder to mount (it takes lifting your leg higher), it's usually a matter of personal preference that makes the decision for riders.
Our bicycle is a variation on the traditional diamond frame. The parallel top tube and shortened head tube create an illusion which makes the frame appear more triangular than diamond shaped.
One of the advantages of the diamond frame design vs. the step-through is the ability to mount storage bags on the top bar. You have plenty of room between the top tube and the down bar to install a pannier, iPhone holder, water bottle holder or even a beer holder.
Sporty Vintage Look. Our customers tell us every time they take their diamond frame out on the street, people ask where they can buy it! This is thanks to its sleek look, classic diamond Dutch-style frame design, vintage looking corded spoke-guard and comfort balloon tires. Not to mention the retro handlebar and a tear-drop shaped front light.
Power. A 7-speed transmission gives you the power to climb hills, go fast, enjoy short trips and longer commutes.
Double Duty. This bicycle lets you commute and cruise. You'll love riding it on your commute to work as it is comfortable, stylish, fast and rides like a luxury BMW. It's also great for going for a quick grocery run, for coffee or cruising the beach.
Fully Equipped. This diamond frame model comes fully equipped standard. To keep your clothes clean on your ride, there are fenders, a custom chain-guard and a custom spoke-guard. For your utility, a rear rack with spring clip comes standard. Front and rear battery-powered lights increase visibility at night for your safety, and a gold bell will keep people on alert. One of the benefits of buying a fully equipped bike is that it saves you shopping time and money.
Safety. The bell and the two lights mentioned above all contribute to safer night riding. And of course, the single-pull V-Brakes provide for secure braking.
Comfort. The diamond is an extremely comfortable bike, with its shock-absorbing high-tensile steel frame, a custom vintage spring-loaded saddle and Schwalbe Fat Frank balloon tires. At 34 pounds, it's also lighter than most fully-equipped Dutch Bikes. Finally, there is a kickstand for easy parking. A cushioned but fast ride overall.
High End Quality. The quality of our bikes can be seen in many elements including polished welding, 3-layer paint, Shimano gears and shifter, and comfy yet fast balloon tires made with puncture proof Kevlar guard and reflective strips - the highest quality balloon tires available. The shiny stainless steel hardware completes the high-end look.
Designer Bicycle. You'll love the attention to detail we put in the designer metal 3D headbadge. Everything is color matching on the bike including grips and saddle (with pouch hinges) and truly beautiful brown balloon tires. The Peace Bicycles logo is engraved on the saddle and bell. And of course, the color matching corded coat-guard is a unique designer touch that makes the diamond stand out even more.
