Deal Details

Last Edited by DonkeyOtay June 3, 2016 at 09:24 AM
Nashbar.com has a 25% off coupon that expires later today and it brings the price of the Diamondback Axis LT Mountain bike down to $352 shipped.

This is a very good entry level front suspension mountain bike with 27.5" wheels. As far as I can tell its the exact same bike as the backordered Front Page Deal for the Diamondback Overdrive that Amazon had for $290 3 weeks ago, but in a slightly different color made just for Nashbar. Shorter handlebar width and it cost ~$40 more for me than the the Amazon one did after MA tax. I called Amazon today and they still have no idea when (or if) it is coming in, but I'm sick of waiting so I ordered this one instead.

Coupon code is 85487 and 'Free shipping' still cost $15 for oversized items.

There is also a 20% off coupon code that doesn't stack, but doesn't expire until 5/22/16: VRC53 expired

23% off automatically taken off at checkout $361.48 shipped through 5/24

This is honestly a fantastic bike. The gears, pedals, and shifting mechanisms are all more than adequate for regular use.

This bike is great! However, it looks like the coupon is dead now...

Great bike for beginner to intermediate trails. Decent build, especially at this price. Hydraulic disc brakes seem to be the most commonly missing component at this sale price point, but if you keep these mechanical disc brakes clean, they will serve you well.

That was the Axis XE, it has a worse fork, but they are al pretty mediocre in this price range anyways. It was a great deal at $300, the Overdrive was a great deal at $290 on Amazon, and this was still a good deal last night at $350. $375 is a decent price right now if you are sick of waiting, but I'm sure other deals will come.

Solid bike, got into mountain biking with a similar model (Diamondback Response) and it's held up extremely well. I don't believe the forks have a lock out option but they are adjustable. May want to replace the seat.

this is not a good price tbh, this model is the same as the Axis XE (2015) at dicks, and the Overdrive (2016) . Both bike was on sale at $299.99 at Dick's. The Overdrive even dropped to $289 on amazon. Free shipping was default for these deals

When the deal was posted the bike was $352 shipped, the coupon expired and the deal is only warm now with Bikesdirect being a valid option. But this is still the best current price on a Diamondback entry level mountain bike, if you cant wait for something else and dont want to go generic at Bikesdirect.
Actually, if you had to have one shipped from Dicks it is $25 plus tax so it would have been $343 shipped or $319 instore with MA tax. And Amazon also charges MA tax so it was $308 shipped for me, but Amazon said it would take 2-6 months to ship so I canceled my order
