Jenn's Bikes is selling the Diamondback 2017 Trace Mountain Bike Blue for $249.99 again. About a month ago this was a frontpage deal and its back. I purchased a Trace Sport during the last time but those aren't as cheap as when I got mine. Jenn's Bikes sells the bikes but the way it was last time was Diamondback shipped them all

What did you get your Sport for? How do you like it so far. I have been thinking about getting it for a while... Did you get it from Jenn's or from DB?

Downfalls of this bike: no lock out suspension, low end disc brakes and 7 speed gears. Suspension- when climbing to the top of a hill or riding to your destination on the street, you will lose power since your front wheel will go up and down constantly. 7 speed- not enough gears when going up/down hills, many mountain bikers have 2x10 and sometimes 1x10 and the conversion on this bike makes it not worth it.

Actually there are 3x7 gears

^^^ For $10 more Edgewood would be a better choice.

I agree with Gosh. The Edgewood is a better choice.

My sport my $325. I enjoy it so far. I wanted to have the upgraded parts from the regular trace and I like the lockout suspension. I ordered from Jenn's Bike but Diamondback shipped it
