The dictionary defines recoil as Inch to spring or come back; react. Inch The Diamondback Recoil takes that definition to heart. Whether it is flying down the wide open trail or making its way through twisty tight single track, the Recoil Comp will react to what is under its tires and then spring back and be ready to take on what comes next. 29 inch wheels. The larger diameter wheel is taking over, and with good reason. The foundation for this is firmly laid with an all-new 6061 T-6 Aluminum Trail frame sporting 4 Inch of travel via the RockShox Monarch R air rear shock (more on this later). The frame uses a machine formed top tube and a butted and formed down tube sharing tubing from our nicer Sortie series. It uses a sealed cartridge bearing pivot and is built around an optimized single pivot design which is the simplest type of rear suspension because there are few moving parts. It consists of a pivot just above the bottom bracket, slightly up on the down tube and a single swingarm to the rear axle. Being that the rear triangle directly attaches to the rear shock, the shock has a more linear spring rate and offers good small bump compliance. Larger wheels are not the only improvement made to the 2013 Diamondback Recoil Pro 29. We've added a RockShox Monarch R air rear shock to compliment the Rock Shox Recon Silver 29 fork. This fork features rebound dampening adjust and a turnkey lock out. The lockout allows the rider to limit the travel to enhance your climbing experience. The Shimano SL-M430 Rapidfire 9-speed shifters control an Alivio front and an Deore rear derailleur. Combined with and the HG30 9-spd Cassette (11-32t) combined with the Shimano FCM-521 9-spd Octalink crankset ( 22/32/44t) give you 24 mountain crushing gears to choose from.

I took the bike for its first agressive riding at Snow Summit in Big Bear Lake, CA. It took all the agression (and four crashes) and the bike still works. The only thing that broke is the front silver/white reflector which is no biggie. The full suspension is awesome. I see other bikes there which costs thousands of dollars and mine is just as able to par with no problem. I'm definitely happy with this bike.
Edit 2014-04-21: After almost a year of riding the bike, I haven't had major issues with it. I've updated my rating to 4 stars.
07-29-13 UPDATE: I've added the slime to the tubes(though I've NOT had a flat)and took it to Monarch Crest Trail in Colorado this weekend. The trail is listed as Intermediate to Advanced with an emphasis torwards the latter. The brakes worked AWESOME; after deflating the tires to feel like a "hard gel-pack", they performed flawlessly; The suspension worked great over the rocks and drop outs; And, overall, this bike worked well. IF this bike did NOT have the 29" wheels, I would say this would be a very uncomfortable ride over the rocks. I did not wreck but was a little more cautious due to being overloaded with my backpack to go really fast over the rocky, downhills(average of 12-18mph according to my Bike CPU). This REALLY shined when I was able to open it up on the smoother sections of the track or roads. One of the options of this trail was to take a county road and Hwy285 for about 5-7 miles back to the parking lot; This is where I blew by the highly-modified full suspension 26"-wheeled bikes. The 29" wheels with my sturdy frame allowed my to reach speeds of 33-45mph without pedaling! However, I did notice my wheels were slightly bent due the abuse of the rocks...but nothing my bike shop can't fix! All in all, a great ride and a great bike!
