More efficient than a comfort bike, more comfortable than a road bike: most people are surprised at how often they end up choosing a hybrid for a variety of rides. The diamondback Edgewood combines the same relaxed contact point features of a comfort bike with the big smooth-rolling 700c wheels of a road bike. When you're ready to explore a new world of comfort, the Edgewood will take you there. The 6061-t6 aluminum alloy frame sets the standard for durability and the sport hybrid geometry puts you in the perfect position to keep you comfortable as you pedal. The suspension fork and seat post add an extra layer of cushioning for a luxuriant ride, and the 7-speed drivetrain gives you plenty of gears to get you through any terrain.

The biggest complaints I could find about this bike (on a bike forum) were "bottom of the barrel components" and "no lock-outs on the fork."
When I bought my own bike, I had read that you need lock-outs if you will ever be pulling a trailer or a trail-a-bike. I asked a guy at a local bike rental place (which also rents trailers) about this and he said he couldn't imagine why I would need them. My bike has adjustable suspension on the fork, which I figured was good enough, but to be honest I have never touched it. Maybe it matters more if you are doing serious hard-core trail riding? I'm an overweight 38-year-old mom of 4 who likes to hit the rail trails with her husband and kids. *shrug*
Based on my own bike I assumed the all suspensions adjust - but the suspension on the Diamondback does not adjust. The fork is advertised as having 63mm of travel. The brand is not advertised but if you wonder, it is Zoom, which seems to be pretty low-end as far as things go (my bike has RST and Zoom seems to be lower than that). It does not have a whole lot of give, less than my fork, although on paper, it claims to have more. But, in the words of my son, "it's not like we're doing anything that crazy." So it might not be the best you can buy but it works for our purposes.
The front and rear derailleurs on this bike are Shimano Tourney which, yes, is just about the bottom of the barrel. I have noticed the big big box store Shimano components don't seem to have any further sort of qualifier so maybe they are the *true* bottom of the barrel. However, my son's Trek had Tourney front and rear, and my husband's and my Treks have Tourney in front, Altus (mine) or Acera (his) in back. All of our bikes function as needed and we've never found ourselves saying "Gee, this ride would be SO MUCH BETTER iif I had just a better front derailleur!" Your mileage may vary but honestly, if you're such a hardcore biker that you notice the differences in such things, you're probably not looking at this bike.
I can tell you that - having taken this bike for a whirl myself - it shifts very smoothly and is a comfortable ride. I like the big cushy seat and the highly adjustable handlebars. It also has nice ellipse shaped hand grips which are more comfortable than what my bike came with. I LOVE that it comes with trigger shifters which most entry level bikes do not - we had to add them on my husband's and son's bike.
If you want an about-town commuting bike or a comfy rail-trail bike for around three hundred hundred bucks, this will fit the bill. (Should be about that price as summer winds down, into fall) That said, after buying it, at the beginning of summer, I realized I may have been better off buying a Jamis Citizen 2 from my local bike shop. The diamondback is certainly cheaper, but by the time I added a kickstand and water bottle holder, which my bike store throws in for free, the difference wouldn't have been as big as I thought. I also suspect I will upgrade the pedals because the stock ones that come with this are super slick - another upcharge I wouldn't have had with the Jamis. The fork not seeming as good as it looks on paper is really the thing that gives me the most regret - but again, does it really matter for the kind of riding we do? My husband's bike doesn't even have suspension, he claims he doesn't need it. Me, I am glad for a little bounce. And really, the Diamondback still provides that - a little bounce.
While I don't know what the exact weight of this bike is off hand, I think is is the same or slightly lighter than my own, and much lighter than a friend's steel framed bike. It is no trouble at all for me to get this bike on the rack.
This is a very nice bike for the price, and I can't see my son ever having any complaints with it.
One more thing I will add - I ordered mine from performance bike - I know the chain stores will all vary but the mechanic at ours seems like a competent, down to earth guy and our bike was very well assembled and adjusted before we picked it up. Zero complaints there. Their one year return policy made me feel even better about the deal.
edit - after a few trips out - my kid is flying on this thing. I might have to make him drag one of the little kids to slow him down.
edit again - seriously, when my son outgrows this, I might just take it over. It's a comfy ride, and if you tune it and clean it, which you need to do with ALL bikes, it shifts and rides as smooth as anything a casual rail trailer could want. Over time, you can upgrade parts, but if you want on the trail now, in comfort, I don't think you will regret this bike.
I do enjoy riding it and it seems to be the perfect bike for someone like me, (55 yr. old male trying to get some exercise). It's easy to handle and easy steer. The seat could be a little more comfortable....
I would NOT recommend this bike for anything other than paved, (or very smooth dirt), roads.
Everything from free bikes to $1000.00 Giant Defy road bike. Not really that expensive, have you seen bike prices?????
This is a solid bike for the money, if you want more, pay more, don't complain.
seems like everybody wants something for nothing. Yes, components are cheaper, derailer, handlebars, cables, brakes, front tire clips, depends on how much you will be using the bike. I have over 200 miles on it in 8 days.
setup was really at the max of my skills, but i knew what needed to be done with brake cables.
All tools needed were included, not sure what others have missed here.
I was up and riding in 45 minutes, if you are unsure have local dealer build or adjust for you.
front fork & seat post work as they should, handlebar placement is totally adjustable as is the seat distance (forward & back)
I have not had any shifting issues with this unit, but cables and chains stretch with time, so this will need to be addressed in the future,
this should not be a surprise for anyone who rides.
Make sure your front tire skewer is tight to the forks.
great bike for the price @ $245.00 from Amazon.
The best 326.00 spent plus shipping..my same dealer wanted to charge me 400+ tax. Even with the adjustment and shipping I saved 100 bucks. It's better to buy on line. Can't wait to see his face when I tell him the savings. Was going to him first until he hiked up the price 3 weeks after I Spoke to him on the same bike. Beware of bike shops!!!!!!!
