    Good city bike, mediocre off road, September 18, 2010
    By 
    This review is from: Diamondback Outlook Mountain Bike (2011 Model, 26-Inch Wheels) (Sports)

    Please be advised that the bike you’re buying online is not assembled. Several local bicycle stores in my area had it in stock for $229 fully assembled and ready to ride.

    The 2010 model is a world different from previous years, don’t be confused when reading online reviews.

    The bad:
    - imprecise shifting mechanism
    - terrible front suspension
    - too weak for rugged mountain trails

    The Good:
    - aluminum and simple, very light
    - fully serviceable, upgradeable and repairable, unlike bikes from WalMart and similar stores
    - best entry level mixed terrain bike for the money

    In my opinion, this is a very good city/commuter bike that can handle potholes, mud and snow, thus making it great for city riding. Don’t try jumping over logs and boulders and it will serve you well for quite some time. There are very few aluminum bikes in that price range, and this one seem to be the best, so I bought one. Great for someone just learning or not willing to make a $500 commitment, which is an average price for a real rugged MTB. The front shock is so weak that it’s completely pointless, and is likely to fail sooner than later. Keep it clean and lubricated to prolong it’s service. If you’re riding in the city, consider upgrading to a softer tire, as the original is very hard and noisy.

    Good luck and ride safe!

    For commuting – a great bike and very speedy & smooth, April 14, 2011
    This review is from: Diamondback Outlook Mountain Bike (2011 Model, 26-Inch Wheels) (Sports)

    I wanted a bike. Period. Visited Walmart and Target – uggh. Went to a bike store. They had quite a few brands. My requirements were straight forward. I want to commute to & from r.station to my home with occasionally running errands ; all within a 5 mile radius. I also stated that although ultimately I’ll drive on asphalt but initially and many times in the future, depending on traffic I’ll drive on pavements. Also, my requirements had that I’m not a professional biker and have rode bikes with thin tires which made me uncomfortable since they fly forward and also balancing with them is a bit difficult.
    The store offered me numerous ones to try. This one had the best price factor and overall had the smoothest ride. The brands I tried with +/- $50 were Specialized and Schwann (old year model). Somehow I liked the ride of this one. It’s really, really smooth and the best part is it’s actually pretty darn fast; in the sense that it accelerates so smoothly that I didn’t realize how fast I am! It’s a bit on the heavier side I think. I checked the parts, I believe everything is upgradeable which is good. ‘Bout the fork however not too sure since I dont think it’ll allow to go for bigger tires, thinner – is possible. Shimano gear system is good but it’s their startup line. I haven’t yet got the hang of the gear system though.
    The only bad thing is the DiamondBack guide which comes along. It’s really a joke.

    Great buy, July 18, 2011

    This review is from: Diamondback Outlook Mountain Bike (2011 Model, 26-Inch Wheels) (Sports)

    I’ve read many of the comments regarding the Diamonback Outlook on this website as well as on Amazon and Dicks. The only negative response that I must agree with is that the seat is a bit hard. There is little cushioning on the seat, so for those with bony butts like me, the ride is uncomfortable. I picked up a Bell seat pad made of memory foam and all is well. The bike is sturdy and pretty lightweight as far as these things go. I ride for over ten miles several times a week on a paved biking trail and have not had any problems with anything from the brakes to the gears. The ride is very smooth, and I must say that I am happy with this purchase. I’m sure that it could handle minor dirt trails as well, but if you’re looking for something that can take some serious punishment and last for a while, you’re better off going with a Trek or a Cannondale. You can’t expect to go off road with a bike at this price. The bike was on sale for $223, and after using a 25% coupon that I downloaded, I managed to chop off almost $56. Not bad at all. Stay away from department stores as their average stock boy is usually in charge of putting these things together, and it’s not like putting a kid’s bike together. Hope this helped.
