Date Reviewed: January 2, 2003

Strengths:    Kind of strong, but not really

Weaknesses:    Brakes dont work well after only a few rides, gears can get bent out of place easily so you cant ride until you get it fixed, handlebars are very hard to hold on to after about 20 minutes of riding, and this bike cant handle anything rougher than a two foot drop.

Bottom Line:   
There are better choices. Alot better. About a billion better choices. This bike is good for inexpirenced beginers, but only until it gets worn out or broken. Never take this bike to anywhere even remotely dificult.

Favorite Trail:   OP Shunable City Park (i dont know how it is spelled, but it is in san antonio)

Duration Product Used:   2 Years

Price Paid:    $200.00

Purchased At:   Acme Bike Store which is my favorite in all of the Houston area

Similar Products Used:   A Trek for one ride, and a Kona for another ride. Oh yeah, and a Huffy when I was maybe 8 years old.

Bike Setup:   I am thinking about getting a Manitou or Rock Shox fork to replace the dreadful Diamondback fork that came with the bike.

Date Reviewed: October 30, 2000

Strengths:    Rugged frame, good price, good variety in sizes.

Weaknesses:    Crankset is already broke (Rode 10 times) Pedal crank actually fell off while riding. Grips are hard to use when sweating. Shifting is loud and very inaccurate.

Bottom Line:   
Don't buy this bike unless your very easy on them. I had a old huffy ten speed that was tougher then this bike. The seat moves from side to side no matter how tight the lock is. The grips become slick when sweaty. Crankset looks great but is obviously very weak. I'm 6'4" and 260#, and i got ten rides out of this bike before it's broke. It's in for repair, but it may as well be put to sleep for good.

Date Reviewed: October 25, 2000

Strengths:    A strong frame, Great for road and small jumps

Weaknesses:    Heavy, no suspension, Crappy Gear Shifts

Bottom Line:   
This is a good bike for beginners who dont ride alot, but need it for streets, and getting places they still want to get it. It is also good for trails. People who intend to do lots of downhill and lots of off road, get something else, but for those of you who want a bike to go ride to the store, but is still good for trails, and has a nice paint job, this is a good bike for you.

2000 or 2001 Outlook?

Hi, I'm new to the mtbr forum, a lot of information here. I have a Diamondback Outlook and was wondering what year was it made. I don't remember exactly if I got it in 2000 or 2001 and lost the owners manual. It is likely that it was the last year they had the Outlook with no front shocks. Also is h ... Read More »
