Assembly is extremely easy. Really just needs the handlebars, front wheel, and brakes attached. Easy to do with simple tools. Anybody with basic knowledge of bikes and tools can do it in little time.
HOWEVER...if you do so, you apparently void the otherwise excellent waranty. After just a couple of months of use, the left crank fell off and the entire crank assemply needed to be replaced. Was defective due to stripped threads. Took it into the Diamondback authorized warranty shop in Fresno (Herb Bauer) and was told that the warranty is no good unless an authorized bike shop assembled the bike after purchase. The crank assembly was pre-assembled out of the box - all I did was spin the pedals on. Ended up paying ~$65 for the repair which included a higher quality Shimano crank assembly. They said their professional assembly would have cost $70-$80, so I guess I'm still ahead. But be warned that warranty coverage apparently requires assembly by an authorized shop.
Overall, I like the bike. It's a good value for the money. The seat is very comfortable and I like the front suspension. Both of these make it easier since I'm not 25 any more (I'm 45). It rides well and shifts pretty well. It's a good bike for riding around the neighborhood.
There were only (2) things I didn't like. First, both of the rims were slightly bent. That didn't seem normal. I don't think they were bent in shipping; I think the person or the machine that aligns the spokes just didn't go a great job. Secondly, it came with the "curved" handle bars that other postings were talking about. I really didn't like them, they are older-person type handle bars. If I had known that I would have gotten a different model. There was no way to tell; the guy at Dick's said that whether you get the "cuved" ones or the "traditional" ones was random.
I went to Amazon about the wheels. All I wanted them to do was to send me (2) wheels. No way to specify that on the "return" form but I tried via "contact us." So they sent me a whole new bike instead. I ended up swapping out one of the wheels, but even one of the new ones they sent was still somewhat bent. So I swapped out one wheel and sent the "new" bike back. They paid for all shipping so I'm sure they didn't make any money.
Regarding the handlebars, I bought a Diamondback bike for my wife a couple of weeks later at the local Dicks because it was cheaper than Amazon. Her bike had the traditional handle bars and she said she like mine better after riding mine. So rather than pay $20 for new handlebars I swapped them out and we were both happy.
