Diamondback Adult Response XE Mountain Bicycle 2014 - $275 Dick's Sporting Goods B&M

$275.00

71,544 Views
On sale for the week:

Diamondback Response XE 2014 [dickssportinggoods.com]

2013 is also on sale...
Diamondback Response XE 2013 [dickssportinggoods.com]

I know sometimes the older models have better hardware...but I am a bike noob so no idea if this is the case here.

Best to pick up in store as shipping is over $100.

Seems like this is a Dick's exclusive...

I was looking for an entry level mountain bike, would love to hear what people think about this.

Edit copied from my post below for better visibility:
YMMV, but I just got back from Dick's and was able to get the bike at the discounted price plus an additional 20% off by using a competitor's coupon (Big 5 sports)

See wiki for coupons!

Please note the coupon does say 10% off for sale items, however the cashier at Dick's didn't mind doing the 20% (Manager approved it as well)

Total was something like ~$240 with tax included.

I have the 29er version of this and really like it. Although the seat is horrible.

looks legit to me . rave reviews . might jump on this . nice find OP !

edit: just jumped on the deal . used the 10% big 5 which they were gladly matching and got an additional 10% off for applying for a credit application . i really didnt want the credit card so i accidentally inputted in the wrong social , accidentally , and it denied me but she stated she would give the additinoal 10% whether i got approved or not . so total was $242.78 and they tried to sign me up for the 2 or 3 year protection plan , but i was like ehh . she said i have 30 days to come back if i want it and the bike comes with a 30 day dicks warranty , so if anything goes wrong within 30 days they will fix or replace .

again nice find OP ! bike is pretty sweet and for the price , cant beat it !

worship

I'm infuriated. I've been checking the price on this for almost 2 months, finally gave in and bought it last week...and they drop the price this week. NEVER fails.

I haven't gone on any long rides yet, but so far I'm generally happy with it (just wish I would've got a better deal!)

They'll do a price adjustment for you. Go back with the receipt.

I didn't see any policy on their website about this, are you sure? If so, I'll be able to sleep easy tonight....

Really good price for an aluminum frame and mechanical disc brakes.

Components are low end, but brand name low end.

Diamondback is one of the more honest bicycle co.'s out there.

I'd be pressed to suggest something better for under $300 for someone who wants a hardtail mountain bike short of waiting for clearance deals and hoping they have your size.

Sale should end Saturday July 5th. The stores around me had limited stock, so thats why I went today. I believe its possible to order one in store and have them ship it to that store.

I'm pretty sure it is their policy to match competitor's coupons. Probably best to just call your local store and verify.

If you don't have a Big 5 sports near you, I believe there is a Sports Authority coupon as well.

I suggest getting a 29er... I just love them compared to 26 inch wheels. You get more speed and can run over just about anything, however you do get less control (not much less IMHO) and less acceleration from stop. Go to your local bike shop and try both sizes just to see what suits you.
