Strengths:    everything i love it

Weaknesses:    the only weakness is my rear derailleur "ghost shifts" which kinda messes everything up but i mean thats just mine. ots had a lot of dust and dirt gone through it

Bottom Line:   
I completely love this bike, it eats and swallows everything whole! I've only had this bike 3 days and my schedule is wake up, goto the garage, open the door and see the beauty leaned up on mustang and that puts a smile on my face. i get home from school and go straight for the garage and just ride it everywhere for 2 hours. the geometry of this bike is perfect. it wheelies and jumps soooo well. these bikes are HUGE! when the guy i was buying it from told me it was a medium i thought it would be too small and im 6 feet. he pulls it out and OMG it was big but at the same time the perfect size which makes it better. this bike is perfect for the beginner/intermediate rider, its even comfortable to just ride around like down to the store and whatnot. the bike flys downhills, its insaine. it also pedals like a dirtbike goes. i love this bike. the only problem is my shocks are too soft but it still hucks huge.

Strengths:    Wow what a bike. When I told my friends I bought a Diamondback they sort of looked at me funny and said ok... They knew of the reputation of several years ago, and then their trend toward wal-mart quality bikes. Let me say that diamondback is back and really producing great bikes. The frame is stiff and the component selection is better than average for this type of bike. Manitou 6 way is great.

Weaknesses:    Reputation for cheap bikes
Reomveable dropouts

Bottom Line:   
Diamondback is back and producing some great bikes. Go to your dealer and check them out before your next purchase. They are functional, capable, and worthy of some serious consideration.

Strengths:    the forks are great . the brakes even better , rear shock works everywhere !!!!! stable at high speed . looks very cool !!

Weaknesses:    the XT shifters/levers combo are crap, changing gears while braking is a no go.
standard gearing is abit low if you like high speed

Bottom Line:   
this is a great bike. it handels big hits well, good fun !!!!!!!!!!! i like the Saint brakes, hubs , the cranks are very stiff . rear derailer is just tuff !!!
nicely balanced when in the air. makes you ride better than you really can.

Anyone riding an '04 Diamondback XTS Super Moto?

And if so, what do you think? My LBS has a frame + rear shock for $399, and I'm thinking about picking it up. I've been looking for an excuse to build up a longer travel bike, but I don't want to get stuck with a dog! Thanks in advance.Read More »
