Product Description

When a little girl gets too big for a 20" wheeled bike the Tess 24 is the way to go. The heavy duty steel frame will hold up to the trials of childhood while the 40mm suspension fork will make heading down the dirt paths much more fun. Add in both front and rear twist shifters and she will have lots of gears to experiment with. The linear pull front and rear brakes will make stopping easy. Put your little one on a Tess 24 and watch in amazement as she grows - both on and off the bike.

It is easy to put together if you know what your doing.
James
It's not a bad frame at all (a tad heavy, but hey, it's a kid's 'go to school/friends house' bike).

Others commented that it was difficult to assemble and that it didn't come with any instructions.

I got this bike for my 9 year old daughter on her birthday. This was really important to us: she's right between the 20" inch and 24" sizes and a lot of the 24" bikes we tried out were a bit too big for her, the 20" ones seemed like she'd only get to ride for the summer before she out gre them. This bike fit perfectly, seat lowered all the way down and she'll be able to grow with it and use it for a long time. This is her first mountain bike, we were looking for quality and value, and I believe this bike has both. The components are all shimano, the seat is very comfortable (according to her) and the bike is sturdy. It's a bit heavy but it's standard for steel frames in this price range. Plus, she won't be doing any jumping just yet. We've been on a few rides already and the bike has managed well. The shifters do their job well. As on ALL new bikes, the cables will loosen in the first couple of months so the derailers will require a bit of tuning, this is normal and should not be cause of concern as I've read in some reviews. Also, I've read reviews on other sites criticizing the fork but the truth is that on a kids bike, this fork is pretty sturdy and has enough resistance and travel. Unless your kid is competing and requires a more specialized bike, this is a great introductory bike. I bought this at sports authority, so they assembled it for me (store policy) but if you buy here, assembly is really a breeze. Basically you have to put the wheels on, the pedals on, turn the handle bar and thighten the brakes. The hardest part is taking all the cardboard out!
We did a lot of research, tried tons of bikes and I think really found great value in this one. Not that it matters a ton but the bike looks great too, definately way better put together than those cheap ones at walmart (and I shop at walmart). Definately would recommend to others.

My daughter hasn't been able to ride the bike yet due to the massive amounts of ice on the streets this year, but the bike definitely looks nice, was easy to put together and will be a great size for years. The low bar height makes it so my 9 year old can use it now and, since it's made for a teen, she should be able to ride it for a long time. I'm a little worried that the front shock is el cheepo and won't work very well, but can't say for sure yet. The price is incredible.

UPDATE!!!... very disappointed that diamondback would sell this bike. The shock is useless, the bike weighs more than mine and my wife's together and the grip shifts are impossible to turn. I kept telling my daughter to toughen up with the shifters until I finally listened to her and tried them. I couldn't even turn them. So I replaced the rear shifter and now it turns like butter. Diamondback should be embarrassed to sell this...

I bought this bike for my 10 yr. daughter, I did not buy it from Amazon, but form REI, I am very handy with bikes, but they put it together for free, for $180 total, it is a steal.
This bike is not light because it has steel frame...standard in this price range. 21 speed Shimano grip shfters and derailler. We rode it now for a year now, seasonal use, no problem at all....For an average handy man, you can put it together within an hour...and please use a bike stand or bike rack when trying to put it together, it is about 40lbs I believe, or put the handelbar first, then put the bike upside down to install the rest of the components..

I bought this bike for my daughters 11th birthday and she really likes it. I comes disassembled, but it is very easy to put together. I put it together in about 15 minutes and it rides perfectly. She has been riding it for about a year now and it has been superb. I don't know why its getting such low ratings. It is easy to put together if you know what your doing. No parts have broke, nor has any parts just fallen off. Just remember to tighten up all the nuts and bolts. This is a nice bike and I would recommended it to anyone wanting a nice quality bike for their daughter.

This was a good purchase at a good price. The only drawback is that the assembly instructions are poor to non-existent. If you have never had experience assembling, maintaining or repairing a bike like this you are in for a long process.

It was a very good price for someone who does not mind the assembly process.

Bought this bike for my 9 year old daughter. The assembly was pretty basic. Others commented that it was difficult to assemble and that it didn't come with any instructions. It did come with instructions and pretty simple to assemble. I also did read a review or two that complained about the grip shifters. Those reviews were accurate. The grip shifters are way too hard for a kid to turn. I can barely turn the grip shifter on the right and scraped the skin off my knuckles trying to turn the shifter on the left. If you get this bike, you will most likely have to replace the shifters with something else or don't plan on you kid being able to shift the gears any. I'm waiting for the new shifters and will try to update after that.
