The purity of the Diverge borders on spiritual. It’s a connected experience sprinkled with all the feedback and sensations regular mountain bikes seem to mask. It’s not perfect but you should remember the Diverge’s split focus and jack of all trades type of personality equips riders to efficiently explore a plethora of surfaces and routes without swapping bikes. While its relevance here in South Africa is still up for debate I think the versatility it offers will appeal to a large number of riders/enthusiasts looking for an inbetweener. What’s not to like? It’s fast and responsive, and for somebody who enjoys riding on mix of roads and terrain (very quickly) it undoubtedly keeps with the one-bike-does-all philosophy. I think I want one. In fact, let me rephrase that: I need one! – Aaron Borrill
