Well i'm am new to mountain biking and bought a DiamondBack Overdrive Sport (2014) three weeks ago. I live in central cali just south of Fresno. I have put about 50 miles or so on it just around town. I was all loaded up for my first day in the dirt on some local single track and long story short I ran into a rut and the back tire got caught on the ground bending the rear tire and put a nice kink in the frame. Local bike shop says they would not ride it any longer. I called DiamondBack and they said there was no way to get a replacement frame. So now heres where i need help. I was just thinking about buying a new frame and transplanting the components. I am looking for a 15" to 16" frame in the $400 range. I have know idea where to start and what problems I may run into. Any local help would be great but ill take what ever I can get. Bike pics and specs below.
