Size Name: X-Large/22-Inch Verified Purchase
The bike came 'boxed' to the door. Despite some minor handling punctures, the bike was pristine and undamaged inside. Well wrapped & protected and secured inside the cardboard shipping container. Assembly was simple and straightforward, needing only a few tools like hex wrenches, a thin open end wrench for the peddles and a cross point screw driver. There's a tool list on the box. There's a simple tool kit included but they seemed like 'novelty' items vs working tools.

It needed only a few minor adjustments which were outlined in the instruction/assembly manual. After fitting the brake and shifter levers and airing the tires, the first ride was a quick and dirty run through the neighborhood to verify that it shifted and stopped. No problems. Great brakes.

This is my first experience with disc brakes on a bicycle. Like all other disc brake system's they need to be 'seated' with the pads. After the first few miles they're well 'seated' and have excellent feel. Very smooth, not grabby or sticky but respond quickly when needed and give all the slowing/stopping power I needed in any situation I put the bike into.

The seat adjusts forward and backwards, making it easier to find a comfortable riding position. It's about as cushioned as can be expected; that's why there's an industry devoted to biking comfort, right? The handlebars have a small, useable range of adjustment also. After a few miles riding in different terrains I had everything fitted to my preferences. I'm 6'4" & 220lbs. I purchased the 22" frame size. To be really comfortable, I need a bit more height on the front stem but I'm used to the handling characteristics now and will deal with that aspect in the future.

I like the shifters. I like the affirmative 'click' and the immediate shift point.

This is my first 29er. I have riding a 26 full suspension for 3 years. After a bad crash and practically totaling out old bike, I decided to get a new one. Strapped for cash, I looked for a bargain. I came upon the Overdrive and have been toying with getting a 29er. Needless to say, I love the bike. Strong and sturdy for a 230lb guy like me.

Love this bike, it's my first 29er and I'm sure that has much to do with my satisfaction.
With a 29er you just point and shot, this thing will roll over anything, car in your way? just roll over it!
Breaks are great, and it shifts better than any of the ten bikes I own ;-)
On the down side, the shock is junk, when I saw the lockout on it I said to myself "I could bust that in a weeks time."
I ride 20 miles a day 2 and from work, so in a week the lockout was slipping in and out [When you lock it out it hauls]
I'm in [Slow Mode] now as the lock out broke completely last week when I dropped a 50ft overpass embankment, now I'm stuck with a spongy ride.
And at 35 pounds this bike is a tank.
The fact that you can and will roll over everything means this thing eats tiers,it comes equipped with WTB's, great in terms of traction and speed but not cheap to replace at over 50 bucks a pop.

Bottom line, if you need a solid shock get the pro.

Bought this bike this past week! If you can find it, buy it. They are selling out fast and all stores have low quantities of this model. Bike looks great - almost all black. Tires are knobbby and ready for the trails (although so far I've only ridden this on streets and down at the park). Front fork locks out. Very comfortable ride. The 29's are ready to roll and even on streets I didn't feel like I had to work that hard to get rollin. Components are really nice. Even a few guys at different bike stores said they compare to $700-900 bikes. The only drawback (to some) may be the weight. It's not the lightest bike out there but I'm not in need of a featherweight bike for jumping or anything. Overall, I love this bike and will be riding it for a long time! Two thumbs up!

I needed to replace my Raleigh M-20 Mountain-Trail Bike,which I used for trail and road applications.

Recently, I upgraded to the Diamondback Overdrive 29'er Mountain Bike (2011 Model, 29-inch wheels), produced by Raleigh. The Diamondback was certainly an upgrade! And since I cycle more often now the quality of ride is very important. After test riding several high name brand bikes from two bike shops in Pennsylvania and New York I decided to buy the Diamondback Override. At around $500 its Price and Quality easily compare with or even exceed certain model offerings, such as the Cannondale, Felt and Trek. Firstly, the 29ers offer a smooth ride over mudd and rugged terrain.
Second, the Diamondback Override offers competitive pricing with a smart look and competition build. That's the MO for the Overdrive Comp. With a butted 6061-T6 aluminum frame and SR Suntour XCR-Rl 100mm fork with lockout built around these beefy 29" wheels, there is no root, rock or mountain that can't be conquered.

You may add a Shimano Acera rear derailleur, SLM 310 8spd rapidfire shifter, and Tektro hydraulic disc brake, and this beast cannot be beat.

Size Name: Large/20-Inch Verified Purchase
I'm a recreational biker in Houston area so no rocks or big hills. Been riding on the local wooded trail (quite dusty). This bike needs some tweaks but overall is a keeper. I'm almost 6 foot and the extra wheel base is nice. As expected the 29ers soak up a lot more stuff than a 26. Front shocks are very smooth and responsive.

Box arrived with some of the shipping protection broken. Also the internal parts box was broken open and all most of the parts were loose in the box. In the end nothing was broken but the front wheel quick release nut was missing. $3 at the local bike shop and all is good.

Shifters are installed a bit too close to the handles and I was catching my knuckles on them and accidentally shifting down. Moved them inwards an inch or so and all is sweet.

Been riding for two weeks (50 miles or so) and already the rear shifter is sticking on a up shift ( going to a smaller ring). Will probably need to rebuild and clean out the dust.

Front breaks are a disappointment. On an old fashioned clamp brake 26" bike I had previously I could do a head stand using the front breaks. With these I stop but not as quickly as with my old clampers.

Very happy with overall performance for the price but will tweak it a bit before I am done.
