Date Reviewed: June 3, 2011

Strengths:    Two weeks of performance

Weaknesses:    Leaks the inside oil on the stanchions, bottoms out and then proceeds to stick as it bottoms out, squeaks, and the chrome finish fork columns are scratched easily.

Bottom Line:   
This is garbage fork that comes on a bike. If the Diamondback Response line came with a better fork then it would sure cost a lot more. This is a good beginner suspension fork to get riders interested into moving up into better components, but I would not keep this for longer than a year for fear of complete destruction inside of the mechanism (unless you have a LBS rebuild it which would be a waste of money on a cheap part).

Spinner Edge al1 on Response sport

Bought a Diamondback response sport as my first mtn bike. I am just getting into the sport and this bike fit my budget. After my first trip out I noticed the front forks literaly have no travel.
