This bike is extraordinary. I love how smooth and fast I can ride on this road bike. I just want to clarify that this is the first road bike that I own but before having this bike I was riding on a hybrid bike and it was very hard to keep up with my friends on long trips (25 miles +) with that bike. This bike allows me to ride at the same pace as my friends with more expensive road bikes. I got this bike on a great deal from amazon for only $400. Here are some things that you need to know before you buy it:
- Assembly is easy but you will need to calibrate the gears before you start riding it. There are several videos online in how to do this but you will probably spend alot of time before you can make it just right. If you are willing to spend some money, take it to your local bike shop and they can do this for you.
- Also the wheels on this bike have a thinner kind of valve which are called "presta" valves so you will need a special pump or a accessory to use a regular pump.
- Basic things you will need to start riding will be a water bottle, helmet, gloves (for extended rides), an on board computer to measure your speed, distance, time, and calories burned and a bike stand so that you can stand your bike since it does not have one.
- Also please note that the pedals on this bike work with any shoe and the have a strap to secure your foot on it in order to ride it, you can remove the shoe holders if you dont like them but it will make you less efficient while riding.

The last thing that i would like to comment on is the proper sizing of a bike. I recommend you going to a local bike shop and finding out what are your measurements before you buy the bike.

I shopped and shopped, and finally decided on this bike. I felt it really had the most to offer for the money; I wanted a nice 'starter' bike for road biking. I didn't want to go way too cheap and buy a piece of junk (which I have always had), and I didn't want to spend too much initially either. This bike is put together nicely, and it rides great. You can easily compare it to 700, 800 plus dollar bikes in other places. I paid 550 for it from Amazon. I am a bike mechanic, so I have built lots of bikes; this bike comes with quality components all the way around. If you prefer super high quality components, like shifters for instance, you can always upgrade those individually. I plan to customize/upgrade/replace the shifters and the sprockets later on, after I get some use out of the ones that came with the bike and when I have figured out what will work best for me on there. Overall, extremely pleased. Quality is better than or as well as expected. I did buy a padded seat cover, and may change out the seat altogether to a more padded one. I am fairly heavy at 6' 250 lbs (mostly muscle) and those little seats with nearly zero point zero padding on them are not for me. Hope this helps you out.

Assembly was intuitive, all the tools needed were provided. No pedals are shown in the picture but they are included. I had the derailers adjusted at a shop for around 30$ - you'll probably want to have this done - once complete it rode perfectly.

This bike arrived super fast. The packaging was under par and when I arrived I noticed a hole on the side which made me clinch with fear thinking its damaged. Thankfully the whole missed any vital components and frame. With that said the bike is great, looks super sharp and when I took it to a top notch cycle shop to tweak it and get it road ready some it got a lot of looks. This is my first bike so for a starter look no further. You will love its looks and sharp lines. I give it a 5 star becuase Im really impress on how it looks. Let me add I have written it already over 5 times along with friends who have $2000 plus bikes and had no problem keeping up. At the end of the day Im glad I pulled the trigger with this bike.

I purchased a 2012 DiamondBack Podium 1 back in October. I have been on several 20, 30, 40 mile road trips. The bike handles well. I rode a DiamondBack Outlook mountain bike for over 16 years,it has been a good bike, so I went back with DiamondBack. The Podium 1 came mostly put together, I had to install front wheel, seat and seat post and had to run the cables for the front and rear brakes and adjust them. I'm not exactly a bike mechanic, the only component I had to have adjusted were the front and rear derailers. I highly recommend this bike!

I purchased this bike because I wanted to get a road bike but couldn't afford to go to a bike shop and pay full retail. I am very pleased with this bike. It shifts great and rides really fast. This is an entry level bike so the components are not the best. I purchased this bike from amazon for 475.99 with free shipping and no tax. I attempted to assemble it myself but gave up quickly. I took it to my LBS that sells diamondbacks and they assembled it for 65 dollars. I have $550 into this bike my LBS sells a comparable bike for $800 plus tax. I think I did well on this bike.

I've had the bike for about 2 weeks now. It's worked pretty well so far. The assembly was pretty easy but could've been a little more clear. I just have a few tips for you if your buying this bike:

1. When assembling the brakes, be sure to hold the brake pads to the rims (braking position), then tighen the brake cable. If you don't do this, you will keep pulling the brake levers and the brake pads will never touch the rims. Do not make the mistake I did thinking there was too much slack in the brake cable and cutting it. DO NOT CUT ANYTHING!
2. Try to leave the front and back derailieur the closest to the way they came. Messing with the two side-by-side screws that say "up" and "down" will SCREW you up!

This is a solid bike though. It will take some initial work and regular maintenence, but in the end, it's worth it...
