Diamondback 910SR Fitness Recumbent Bike
Comfort and Ease of Use
The Diamondback 910sr’s recumbent design keeps the user’s body in a perfectly ergonomic position that minimizes stress on sensitive parts of the lower back and surrounding area and distributes weight evenly – making for a much more comfortable workout experience with no aches and pains from bad posture. This is a welcome feature to anyone who’s ever used less modern bikes – such as the ones often found in less up-to-date gyms. Additionally, the seat and seat back as well as the console and handlebars can be adjusted to the user’s preferences thus greatly maximizing comfort.
On the other side, the extensive feature set included with this recumbent bike could easily have warranted some significant setbacks in terms of usability but – much to my surprise – the Diamondback 910sr’s user interface might be one of the simplest I’ve ever come across. While it does have more than its fair share of buttons, the text on-screen and on the dashboard is very easy to understand and most users should have no trouble finding their way around it very quickly – even without the manual (though it always helps to read it of course).
The step-through entry system also makes mounting and dismounting this bike a breeze compared to other models that users sometimes have to climb onto.
Heart Rate Monitor: Polar Strap is optional, Handle bar Grip included.The Diamondback 910sr comes with a clear, bright blue LCD screen displaying fitness data such as calories burned, speed, time and heart rate. This model comes with a state-of-the-art wireless heart monitor/receiver that works with compatible chest strap models and removes the need for users to hold onto pulse rate sensors (which is how most other bikes do it).
With 35 workout programs and 32 levels of resistance, this recumbent bike is one of the best available for fine-tuning workouts to very specific user needs based on experience, fitness level, and unique goals. This makes it great for users of all levels and it also has specialized programs for targeting heart rate goals (important for building fitness and endurance).
The next feature many users will appreciate is the supreme quietness of this model thanks to its Eddy Current Brake system. Even at the highest resistance levels and cycling speeds it stays almost silent which is great if you like watching TV, talking on the phone, listening to music, or doing anything else while you exercise.
Speaking of listening to music, the recumbent bike has built-in port that can connect to your iPod via USB and charge it while also playing your favorite tunes and rhythms to complement your workout. The integrated speaker system removes the need for headphones while you ride and you can just set up your playlist and forget about it as you cycle away those calories or work on your fitness.
The Diamondback Fitness 910sr also features a conveniently placed magazine rack where you can put your books, magazines, or pretty much anything else you’d like to read for easy viewing. This is another time when you’ll appreciate the silence of the magnetic resistance system.
Built-in cooling fan that you can customize to just the right level is the next cool feature the Diamondback 910sr sports and – combined with the water bottle holder – will help keep you cool and hydrated as you exercise without needing to interrupt your workout for a water break.
Assembly and Parts
For a bike of its sophistication, the Diamondback 910srl isn’t too difficult to put together. In fact, it’s not difficult at all but it might take a while. An hour or so should do it if you’re decent at following instructions (they’re pretty clear) and everything you need to put it all together is included in the shipping packed.
You’ll want to take the considerable weight of this recumbent bike into account before assembling it though. It won’t be a lot of fun to move this around after you’ve put it together and you certainly won’t want to be moving it up or down any stairs when you’re done. Better to bring the individual components to where you plan to use the machine and set everything up there.

So began my adventure. It is now May 6th of 2013, approaching the expiration of the 1 year labor warranty, and the popping in the bearings still has not been repaired. I keep going in circles trying to get this fixed. Diamondback won't reply to my emails. I have to deal with the local dealer, who told me that I had to start by calling their service repair company that they contract with. After waiting a few weeks, I finally got a tech to come out to look at it. He took the housing apart to try to fix the squeak -- by oiling the tension spring -- and broke the alignment teeth off the enclosure housing in the process. I had showed him that the squeak seemed to be coming from the tension arm pivot bolt, but he oiled the spring instead. Obviously that didn't fix anything. I put up with it for a while and then called back nearly two months later. The service company said that Diamondback never paid for the warranty repairs, and the service company was no longer working with dealer from whom I bought the bike.
I called the dealer, and they told me I had to work it out with the same service company that just told me that they were no longer working with this dealer. Neither one could figure out who I needed to work with, so I was in limbo for a while. The dealer told me they'd get it straightened out and call me back. However, the dealer has yet to ever call me back on a single call since the day I took ownership of the bike. In mid-December I called back again to the dealer, and they referred me to a new service company. By then the pivot arm squeaking had stopped, but the popping in the flywheel bearings was still hit or miss. Based on my descriptions and the sounds they could hear over the phone, the service tech also determined that it was the flywheel bearings (the popping continued even when I stopped pedaling, but the flywheel was still spinning). So supposedly they ordered parts and would call me back. I waited two weeks, but no callback. So I called the service company again. To my surprise, I was told that there was a recent policy change and that I now had to have prior permission from the dealer's service headquarters to have my bike serviced. I called the dealer's service headquarters but I could never reach the person to talk to for scheduling warranty work; all I could do was leave voicemail messages, and never ever received a call back.
Fast forward a little -- in February 2013, almost two months later and no communication with anyone, the service company surprised me by calling to schedule repair work for the bearings. Great! Except when they arrived, Diamondback had sent the wrong replacement parts. So their trip and all my waiting was for nothing. New replacement parts would have to be ordered.
It is now May 2013. There are no replacement parts, nor has there been any contact from anyone. The problem has not been fixed since I received the bike in June of 2012, and it has now developed yet another problem. Today the speed sensor stopped registering. Hence, the bike does not detect any movement, and resets itself after about one minute. It is now completely non-functional. Here I go again, trying to contact the service company, still waiting for the original replacement parts, plus the new repair which will now likely need more replacement parts. The service company said they'd call me back...
I can't begin to fully express my disappointment with this bike, and would never recommend it to anyone. It has been bad since the very beginning, and I should not be experiencing problems with a brand new $800 bike like this. As of now this product is landfill waste. Diamondback's lack of response to rectify the problem and the hassle with the dealer and their service vendors has been extremely frustrating. It is unbelievable that it has taken this long to get this issue resolved. Steer clear of the Diamondback 910sr recumbent bike, unless you want an exercise in frustration!
Additional review notes: during all my research, there was one website review that warned that Diamondback had internal quality issues. That's the review I wish I would have paid more attention to. The bike frame itself feels solid, but that means nothing if it doesn't work functionally. The computer controls also feel cheap; it is a membrane type entry and does not feel durable. The built-in fan is completely worthless, and trickles a hot circuit-board smell into your face while exercising. Not good, and I never use it. One last item -- if you press the stop button for two seconds, it erases all the user settings. You then have to reprogram all your user settings for the bike again. This is frustrating, as they should have separated the "reset" into another button.
Very much regretting this purchase. My previous recumbent bike was a $250 cheap Edge 491 bike which lasted nearly 10 years. I expected a lot more from the Diamondback bike, and received a lot less.
The seat adjustment is solid, and very comfortable for me in use. It is very easy to adjust for my wife, and then return to my settings, though there are no presets. The pedals are comfortable enough to use in socks even at higher intensity.
I rode about 10 miles last night while playing an X-Box 360 game on line and am very happy with this purchase. The reason I purchased a recumbent was so I could actually exercise while playing on line and this worked perfectly, the computer does not obstruct the view of my plasma screen that is about 20 inches off the floor. I bought a polar chest belt with this bike and it works fine with no set up needed. (Polar T-31)
The only possible negative if you want to see it that way is that I will need to read the manual to refine my use of the computer as the interface is not 100% intuitive, and there are many features that are user programable.
