Strengths:    2002 RM20 (red/white)well the frame is a good design, its a 21.25" top tube and its got nice room in the front, the wheels are very strong , 3 piece AXELS , nice ac cranks, euro bb is a nice touch, bars are similar feel to slams, sealed headset and pedals,

Weaknesses:    the forks are pretty heavy, as stock the front end is heavier than the back, but i put sinister forks and its almost even, the front is a little lighter now, not much to complain about

Bottom Line:   
good race bike, very smooth, comes decked as stock, just needs lighter forks, umm not many other bikes in that price range come with good cranks and sealed headset and sealed pedals, and nice wheels, very respectable, one of the best deals out there

Strengths:    NONE WORST FRAME SET EVER BOUGHT

Weaknesses:    PRE OVALIZED HEADTUBE FROM FACTORY ON NOT ONE BUT 2 OF THEM,REAR END WAS CROOKED,B.B. WAS CROSS THREADED UPON ARRIVAL FROM BAD MACHINING.THEY REFUSED TO TAKE IT BACK PLUS THE ANGLES WERE WHACK.

Bottom Line:   
YOU CAN GET THE FREE AGENT LIMO OR A HARO FOR BETTER QUALITY AND SERVICE MY LIMO TEAM FRAME RULES RIDES LIKE A DREAM. DIAMOND BACK POOR ATTEMPT TO GET THEIR NAME WITH QUALITY FAILED IN MY OPINION, GET SOME WARRENTY TECHS THAT RIDE AND KNOW WHY YOU COMPLAIN INSTEAD OF EATING DONUTS ALL DAY
