5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome bike, July 8, 2010
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Diamondback Clarity 1 Women's Performance Hybrid Bike (700c Wheels) (Sports)
I thought I'll get a bike for fun since it was my 3rd year in college. This is my first road bike and I haven't rode a bicycle since elementary school on a department store mountain bike. Even though the bike does not come with building instructions (I'm guessing because they don't want everyone to just throw it together carelessly and then just ride it), its more than easy enough to search online for them. I recommend to not rush it and take your time if you are new to building bikes, it's nothing like putting together furniture. All the parts might be in the right place but there are seemingly small things to take note of (such as adjusting the derailer, brakes, etc). You can take the giant box it comes in to a shop to build, but if you have lots of patience, learning everything about the bike really brings up your attachment to your bike. It rides smooth, fast, the handlebars are comfortable, and I really like the shifting levers (since this type is new to me, it's pretty fun too).

I keep a chain lock locked onto the bike at all times and if I am planning on more than a quick 10 minute stop I bring my U lock and maybe even an extra cable.

Although I am male, I did a bit of purely aesthetic customizing and I ride this bike proudly despite this being a women's bike. No one complains, and I get a great white/black design that I was unable to find anywhere else. Totally happy with this purchase.

For me, it was definitely more worthwhile buying a bike outside of those crappy department store types, getting it cheap, and all bundled together with the experience of learning and building.

Overall I really like this bike and think most people will too.
