Diamondback Mens 2012 Edgewood PROS AND CONS
- Price range is low for a good quality bike, per Diamondback’s reputation
- Smooth and comfortable ride reported by owners
- Efficient ride: good amount of movement for the energy expended
- Light frame feels pretty durable, can handle road riding well
- Mixed reviews about the shifter quality and chain quality
Overall, for those looking for a very reasonably priced bike, the Diamondback Mens 2012 Edgewood is good quality for the price. The parts could be of slightly higher quality but would probably cost you at least double this bike. This is definitely one to check out and then, like some owners (because there are some mixed reviews), if you find you need one or two parts replaced (maybe the Shimano shifters) you can upgrade those, but worthy of trying it out first – you may find no problems at all!
What Buyers Are Saying
“First, this bike is great in its price range. Are there better parts..Yes of course (always). Anyways, to the point.I started with a different bike and was not satisfied at all. This bike is a smooth ride and really feels like you are getting a good amount of movement for the energy you are exerting. I believe the bike to made of quality parts and everything goes well together and it was easy to put together. It comes with tools needed to build (as it should for hundreds of dollars, for anything). End point, a nice smooth ride and a good bike….(READ MORE)”
“Had this bike put together by a really good bike shop and tuned at the same time. It is a great looking bike with good tires and a nice frame and seat, but the only complaint is the shifter is really cheap the worst you can buy even so its really loud and hard too get tuned right. For the price you cant go wrong but if you want smooth shifting you will need to spend another $150 and install upgraded shifters on it like I did…(READ MORE)”
“This bike is perfect for my needs ( I was getting tiered of leaning forward with all other bikes I was using & this bike took care of that ) — I use it for work , shopping , laundry — it’s very comfortable to use & ride so far with in 5 miles — can’t wait for spring for some long road biking ( I live in Wisconsin )
