Diamondback Trace Bike - 2013is rated4.0out of5by4.
Rated4out of5byfromit can take a hitI mainly use ot for going pont A to pont B its a nice ride and can take a fall like nothing. The only down side would have to be the waight.

Rated4out of5byfromWell worth itThis bike handles much like my mtn bike-responsive but not twitchy-this is great. I like the ergon style grips-very comfortable.The shifting is clunky but then again I'm used to the high end shifting on my Ultegra(road)and Sram (mtn)bikes. It's okay though. The mechanical disc brakes don't stop as good as I thought they would but then again it's not what I'm used to. I think this is a great bike for the money.

Rated4out of5byfromGreat affordable bike!I got this bike to commute to work on. It's been terrific, I've kitted it out with a rack, panniers, lights and fenders. It's served me very well and I've averaged about 2-3 mph faster than on my FS mt bike. My work commute has gotten faster and more comfortable. The bike itself seems great. It's been good quality so far and has disc brakes, not something I found with other bikes at this price point.

Rated4out of5byfromSolid reliable bikeWhat more can I say other than it's easy and fun to ride, the gears and brakes work well. I've only been riding it for about a month, but so far so good.
