Update: It's been a couple of months now, and 100 plus miles later, the bike has held up pretty good. The only thing I have to complain about is the fact that you cannot raise the handlebars up any higher. The two shims that come with it are all you can get for height without getting more shims and replacing the shaft with a longer one. On long rides, I find myself wishing that I had at least another two to three inches of height. The ride is also pretty harsh. I keep the tires at 65 PSI, and you can still feel every single bump and deformation in your path. If there is a divot in the sidewalk or road, you had better stand up on the pedals and pull the front tire up, or you are going to end up with a bicycle seat buried up in places it shouldn't be, and your arms are going to get a really nasty jolt. I'm afraid that if I don't, then I will get a snake bite on the tube or damage the wheel. Even with these little issues, the bike is still awesome, and I would buy it again anyways.
Update 1 year later: Love the heck out of this bike. The only thing that annoyed me was the fact that, like some of the other reviewers have noted, the spokes on the wheels are not tight, and you will quickly find them out of true after X-amount of miles when you first get the bike. After a little wrenching and making them true again, I was back in business. Make sure to visit youtube for some great videos on how to adjust your spokes. Anyone can do it themselves with a little patience and a spoke wrench or good old-fashioned adjustable wrench if that is all you have on hand.
I had originally rated this as 5 stars with the title of "Great bike! but I changed the rating to three (and will likely change it again unless something unexpected happens). I've had lots of problems (four broken spoke) in less than two months. When the first one broke, I complained and Diamondback sent me some inner tubes to sooth my ruffled feathers after the first spoke broke. I've now lost a total of three more and had a replacement wheel sent. In comparison, I rode a "Walmart Special" as hard (if not harder) for three months (after owning it for about 5 years) and never broke a single spoke. In fact, though I'm not a competition rider or road rider (until recently), I've never broken a spoke - ever.
When they sent the replacement wheel, they indicated they were sending a new cassette (rear gears) as well, but the one they were sending was geared differently (supposed to be better) than the current set. "It's compatible with your derailer and won't be a problem." I was promised. Well, it wasn't pre-assembled and doesn't seem to fit the wheel they sent (the hub appears to be about 1/4 of an inch too long and the last two gears aren't secure). I also don't have the proper tool to tighten the cassette onto the wheel. I'm not a bike mechanic, so maybe I'm doing something wrong, but they're pretty simple to install. This one is just the wrong size.
That, along with the fact the that the replacement wheel (and spokes and cassette they sent) are silver. The wheel they are replacing is black with blue designs. This isn't even the wheel from that model of bicycle. I've re-opened my ticket (since they closed it when the replacement wheel shipped) and added additional comments. As today is Thanksgiving, I'll be expecting a response from them tomorrow. They have one chance to make this right or they pay the freight for a return. This is embarrassing for Diamondback and will make my bike look a bit odd with one black spoked wheel and one silver.
I'll update later this week as this continues to unfold.
Love the bicycle but be careful with the spokes / critical bolts / nuts after a few rides. I put about 100 miles (about a week) on this bicycle and noticed that the rear wheel had come out of true. I stopped and realized that most of the spokes on the rear wheel were loose and needed adjustment. I took it to a bicycle shop where they re-trued the wheel and tightened the spokes.
Lesson learned here is to do a more thorough safety check each time you ride... I ride (currently) 3 to 5 times a week at about 25 miles per ride and am now checking the bike more closely before each ride.
