Strengths:    The parts are dope!, Love the tripple wall rims, great breakng power. been like 20 feet in the air, huge gaps, hard grinds, long hard sessions and only replaced about 3 minor parts (seat clamp n post) and that was just for personal pref.

Weaknesses:    handle bars too wide with bad sweep, bike heavy but like all have said, absolutely indestructible

Bottom Line:   
definately one of the better bikes ive bought, would not buy as first bike. Best parts package ever on a diamondback by far. Premium bike but not for little tykes lol

Strengths:    The cranks are awesome, I like the smaller sprocket for faster accelleration, the body strangth of the bike is really there. Nice headset, I like the idea of the sealed berrings, and the way they pop out easy for convient replacement. It is just an overall nice bike for the $.

Weaknesses:    There is not really alot of weeknesses but the bike is a little too heavy.

Bottom Line:   
it is just an overall nice bike with some really nice parts espically the cranks. The only problem is that the bike is a little heavy.
