Diamondback and Fox Shocks Score with the Sortie Comp The Diamondback Sortie Comp trail bike eats up singletrack as well as it craves long descents making it an ideal trail bike for all day off road rides. Nimble enough for cross country...
Strengths: 5" of travel, great components, and great price!!!
Weaknesses: Cant find any yet.....I am being honest, I have had it about a month and I am still looking for something I dont like.
This bike is a beast going up and coming down! with 5" of travel there isnt much it cant handle. Components are excellant, Fox CTD rear shock and Fox CTD fork. I ride a lot of Northern California trails and I love this bike. Diamondback gets a bad name for its lower end bikes but this is a different beast, it has many of my friends who ride name brand bikes thinking twice.
I am looking for some first hand reviews/experience with the 2013 Sortie Comp. I thought it would fit my riding style well (Between XC and All Mountain) but got scared off with this review online, labeling it as unstable on bigger/fast descents.
