The Overdrive 29er looks tough. Huge tires, big front shock, disc brakes and very black. For my taste, it could even be blacker. I'd love to get rid of the fat white stripe on the top bar.

It's a comfy ride. I'm 6" (32' inseam) and got a large, which feels comfortably big. It'll be my ride for an upcoming XTerra Triathlon on trails, but mostly it's going to be a city cruiser, to which it seems very well suited.

Also, the price is very right. It was the best 29er I found, with disc brakes, around $500.

Really the only drawback are the gears. They work, but not beautifully, and they don't inspire much confidence to ride hard.

Other than that, be prepared for some assembly. It's a nice little DIY project and comes with useful instructions and tools. Still I needed a few other tools and some Googling to get it right, especially to adjust the derailleurs.

Have fun. I'm off for a ride!

You get what you pay for, $550 to my door I got a lot with this bike. The bike is solid, well built, perfect for the rocks I find around flagstaff. I love this bike and would not hesitate recommending it to someone looking for a solid entry level bike that will still leave some money in the bank. You will need to do some basic assembly, not difficult if you know what your doing. If you have never made any tuning to your bike in the past, you may or may not need some help. All in all the bike is very easy to assemble. Mine did not come with any tools that I could find, so be prepared to break out your tool box if needed, a standard multi bike tool should have everything you need and you should have one if your buying this bike. Shipping wieght was 44lbs, the bike is 33lbs assembled, I have the 20inch /large.

This is not a department store bike. if you are looking at this and a $200 Wal-Mart bike buy this if you want a tough durable bike. This is the same frame DiamondBack uses on the $2k pro model. all you have to do is upgrade the components as you grow as a rider and this bike will grow with you. I love mine. it was easy to assemble and tune and rides great. just remember to re-tune it after about 2 weeks since the cables will stretch a bit at first and it will need readjustment.

This is a GREAT bike for the price though!

I am 6'4" and I have not found a bike that fit me this well in years. The last one I had that fit well was my Dads ol Schwinn back in the 80's. It had 28 inch wheels if I remember correctly. More recently I decided to get back into biking to drop some pounds. I bought a Mongoose Maxim Dual-Suspension Mountain Bike (26-Inch Wheels). I went on a 24 mile ride and the crank arm fell off 5 - 10 times on that ride. I believe the threads on the bottom bracket stripped out, obviously a 139 dollar bike cant take that kind of riding,(will never buy a wal-mart bike again). I fell in love with the Diamondback. The ride is smooth, the components are great, albeit they are cheaper sram and shimano and suntour, they work well thus far. I believe the better knowledge you have on setting up your components, ie: derailers, diskbreaks,...etc etc, the better ride you'll get(plenty of videos on youtube on how to set these up). The front break caliper and rotor do not come assembled. My only gripe, although not enough to warrent me taking off a star is that the Suntour forks are not lock-out as stated, adjustable yes, but not mlo as stated.

For an inexpensive mountain bike, the Overdrive performs pretty well. The only really weak point is the fork, which is absolutely abysmal. After 4 singletrack rides I replaced it with a rigid steel Voodoo. Dropped three pounds off the front and improved the steering response. The SRAM X4 shifter and rear derailleur are more than adequate and shift well under load. Contrary to some other reviewers, I found the set-up to be very easy. All it needed was an adjustment of the cable tension to provide perfect shifting. No need to mess with the set screws as the range was set fine from the factory. The Tektro discs don't get a lot of positive reviews, but these too were easy to set-up and work well. They do squeal when wet, but it's not that bad. They definitely stop the bike. This is my first 29er and I find that in spite of it's heft (almost 33 pounds before dumping the 6 pound Suntour fork) it climbs much better than my lighter 26er. This is a great bike to buy if you want to try out the big wheel thing but not spend too much. If you want to upgrade, it's the same frame as the much more expensive Overdrive models. Or, you can always put it on Craig's list and sell it for almost as much as you paid for it.

You get what you paid for. This bike is ideal... riding around the neighborhood, hitting hike and bike trails, and riding in the park. It doesn't cost an arm and a leg, mine came with free adjustments and so forth and so on. I suggest this bike to anyone interested in an entry level mountain bike

The bike has exceeded all my expectations so far. he 29 inch wheels are great off road and roll over normal trail roots and rocks without any issue. Gears are easy to change as you ride/climb hills. No more grip twist gears!!! The bike is lighter than I expected, around 30 pounds. I don't know if it is the tire size, the lighter weight, or the different gear ratios but I have picked up about 2mph on my road cruising speed.

The bike is well built with well made components and the final assembly you need to do is minor and easy.

Update: I have now taken the bike on multiple road trips and off road trips. The only issue I have is the tires are pretty thin walled. I got a flat from a sandspur. Went straight through the tire and tube. I am adding a set of tire liners to prevent a repeat. Other than that, the bike has handled everything the trails have thrown at it.
