Just FYI, this has been available for quite some time for this price from Woot. Also, was available for $240 shipped from the Diamondback corporate sale a few days ago (which everyone had access to sign up for).

That being said, this bike is quite nice for the price. I laugh at the comments that people make about this bike not being trustworthy, etc. These specs would be considered quite high end about 10 years ago. It's not like people didn't bike on the same trails before the advent of the air fork, hydraulic disc brakes, etc.

One of these experts is full of shite. But which one?

description says its a 4" fork which is 100mm, the specs say 80mm. I have an older model (2016) of this right before they used the newer frame and its 100mm, although I did splurge and buy a recon silver air fork and replaced the seat with a Charge Spoon to keep my ass from breaking. The thing is even most $700 bikes still don't have an air fork at that price point. The mechanical disc brakes stop me just fine on all the flowing singletrack around me, but I don't live on a mountain. This is a great entry level bike, just don't mistake it for a downhill bike or a $3000 full suspension. If you buy it and ride it into the ground, then you'll know where you need to spend your money on your next bike. There is always another bike... If you never ride it, you'll be glad you didn't waste $1000 on a better bike.

Missing a lockout or I would be all over this. FYI, due to the lack of suspension, this is more of a hybrid bike than a mountain bike. You want a 120mm leeway for a true mountain bike.

Not bad specs for the price but the brakes are pretty bad. Rather have rim brakes than crummy discs.

If used for riding around town they'll be ok.

I think its a great entry level bike. Mechanical disk brakes, and 80mm fork travel are the biggest downside in my opinion. That being said, finding a back with factory 120mm travel and hydraulic discs add $200 or more.

Buy this to prove you enjoy mountain biking, then upgrade in the future.

Looking for beginners mountain bike, is this a good candidate? Will likely only be used downhill. Thanks

I wouldn't trust this bike to do anything but simple trails and fire roads given the quality of the brakes and fork. Though, for that purpose, this bike is perfect for new riders.

As a stocky sized 6ft1. Is 20" big enough for me or do I need to shop bigger sizes? For comparison, I rode a 57cm and 58cm road bike for years. I just don't know mountain sizing

High-end 10 years ago? You're on drugs. 10 years ago, my mid-range KHS had dual suspension, hydraulic brakes, and an air-spring fork with adjustment and 120 or 130mm of travel. This would have been low-end garbage back in 2008, too.

Is this https://www.diamondback.com/partner the site where this bike was available? To create an account it asks for a "corporate code"... Or what is another way to access to sign up? ty

I bought an Overdrive Sport a couple of years ago and have been very pleased with its quality. The seat - yeah, I'm going to replace it. It is very uncomfortable, but when a friend got everything adjusted on the bike correctly it rides great.
