The 2010 model is a world different from previous years, don't be confused when reading online reviews.
- imprecise shifting mechanism
- terrible front suspension
- too weak for rugged mountain trails
- aluminum and simple, very light
- fully serviceable, upgradeable and repairable, unlike bikes from WalMart and similar stores
- best entry level mixed terrain bike for the money
In my opinion, this is a very good city/commuter bike that can handle potholes, mud and snow, thus making it great for city riding. Don't try jumping over logs and boulders and it will serve you well for quite some time. There are very few aluminum bikes in that price range, and this one seem to be the best, so I bought one. Great for someone just learning or not willing to make a $500 commitment, which is an average price for a real rugged MTB. The front shock is so weak that it's completely pointless, and is likely to fail sooner than later. Keep it clean and lubricated to prolong it's service. If you're riding in the city, consider upgrading to a softer tire, as the original is very hard and noisy.
Good luck and ride safe!
The store offered me numerous ones to try. This one had the best price factor and overall had the smoothest ride. The brands I tried with +/- $50 were Specialized and Schwann (old year model). Somehow I liked the ride of this one. It's really, really smooth and the best part is it's actually pretty darn fast; in the sense that it accelerates so smoothly that I didn't realize how fast I am! It's a bit on the heavier side I think. I checked the parts, I believe everything is upgradeable which is good. 'Bout the fork however not too sure since I dont think it'll allow to go for bigger tires, thinner - is possible. Shimano gear system is good but it's their startup line. I haven't yet got the hang of the gear system though.
The only bad thing is the DiamondBack guide which comes along. It's really a joke.
It has served me admirably, as it is a hybrid of a city and mountain bike. I can bike to school easily and quickly, and on the weekends, it holds up really well when biking in the country and mountainous/forest areas. On the other hand, my father's city bike has had its tires popped twice since they're so narrow, so I can say this Outlook bike outperforms a city bike in all ways except for speed. I've biked tons of miles on my Outlook, including long distance biking trips through unpaved trails, into Germany and France (Basel is on the northern border of Switzerland, so biking into another country is easy), through the forest trails in the mountains, in the city, etc. And it's just fantastic. The tires have the traction texture of a mountain bike, but are narrower, and the bike is much lighter than my full fledged mountain bike, but it performs just as well as the mountain bike, except faster due to the narrower wheels and lighter frame.
All around excellent bike, definitely worth the $250 I paid for it.
Lighter than a mountain bike
Faster than a mountain bike
Can take rougher terrain than a city bike
Very tough and hard wearing
Slower than a city bike
No kickstand included (though I dunno if a bike usually comes with one)
Definitely recommend this bike.
