Diamondback Bicycles 2016 Overdrive Hard Tail Complete Mountain Bike Large 20" $289.99 @ Amazon FS

This is the same bike that was on sale for $299 at Dicks Last Week. The only difference is that this one is the 2016 model and has a 100mm shock vs 80mm for the original deal.

The price is only valid for the 20 inch Large size which is good for 5'10 to 6'1" Men.

I happen to be over 6'2 and am ordering this because my inseam is fairly short.

Lowest price per three camels.

***Make sure you install the brake line correctly!!*** The handle is set for V brake function, so you have to unscrew the little red plastic lock and move it to disk brake setting. If you do not, you will not have proper braking strength.


This is incorrect. The correct position is V for mechanical disc brakes. CR is for cantilever or roller brakes, which are not the correct setting for these brakes.

It's a real mountain bike. It's a low end mountain bike but you could actually mountain bike with this on beginner to intermediate trails and not get killed. Way better than the junk that gets posted for $60-$120 every week.


Honestly you are better off looking for an old 90s steel frame mountain bike to use on bike trails. Something like a Trek 930 is more or less bullet proof and you can add higher bars to make it more comfortable. Those things should be about $100 or less now and when they came out in the early 90s they were about $700. Hand made in wisconsin.

Unfortunately, no. I bought a larger bike a few years back, turned out to be a pain in the butt to ride effectively on. I barely rode it then I sold it to my taller friend.

I'm 5' 11" barefoot and 145 lbs... This good for some basic dirt trail riding in the mountains?

My old Motive from Costco 10 years ago kinda fell apart after a couple of hours in the bike rack on the car on some forest service roads last summer... Won't stay in 1st now and a lot of the teeth are broken off for some odd reason... Shimano gears too, but musta been bottom of the bucket stuff.

Will these double walled rims and frame support a 400 lb-er?

Thanks Op, bought one. Don't know much about mountain bikes but I need some oversize. Loved my Diamondback back back in the day!

After doing a ton of research a few years back I went with this bike, I purchased the 29er version though. It is about the best bang for your buck and highly rated bike under $400. I recently went the Diamondback Recoil because I prefer a full suspension but you really can't go wrong with the Overdrive.

As with anything bike ordered online, go over EVERY bolt and nut and make sure they're properly torqued. Check the wheels for trueness and spokes for even tension. Make sure the shock is set up for your weight. Adjust saddle height/position, brake/shifter position.

To answer your other question, yes, this bike should handle basic level trails reasonably well and gravel roads would be no problem.

No, 20 inch frame is going to fit someone around six feet tall. YMMV because it depends on how long your legs and arms are but you'd have to be a freak of nature to fit at 5' 4"
