Submitted by Syrous a Cross Country Rider from NY

Date Reviewed: May 11, 2006

Strengths:    I build bike for a living and the Viper X is one of the simplest bikes there is, but it is also one of the favorets!!! All the parts on this bike are very good quality. Not like Iron Horse, Columbia & K2 (all the same company) these other companies put some really cheap crappy parts on their bikes. Dimondback is pretty good with putting good quality stuff on their bikes. I have the Viper X in Red the 2006 version. I hooked it up with some crome pegs in the back, new shiny steel chain, road/ramp tires and I put some cool dice caps on my tire tube valves. I bought this bike just to cruse around in the city (NYC) and to do some like tricks. This bike is very sexy looking (especialy in red!!) and it is made extremly well.

Weaknesses:    Front standard rim will not support pegs unless you get a longer rod.

Bottom Line:   
I love the bike!! The way it looks, rides & feels. I've taken this bike at very high speeds and it is very stable!! Very flashy, alot of people coment on the bike looking very very nice! (THIS BIKE IS MUCH NICER IN THE RED COLOR!!!)

Viper Video (X-post from Passion)

We (OTB Club) rode Viper today as our year opener.... I chose to do a little extra credit, starting out in the SF Valley at Wilson Canyon and riding up to Pinetos Saddle. Winds were gusting pretty strongly, and blew me off the trail a couple of times on Viper (lap 1). You're on an exposed ridge top ... Read More »
