Diamondback Hook

January 26, 2019
Model/Year: 2018

Pros: geometry, price, internal cable routing for dropper post

Cons: FORK bottom bracket front chain ring cranks derailleur tires bottle cage

Recommendation: dont buy this bike if you are serious about mountain biking iv only had it for a year and way progressed past its intended use. got back from the shop and they told me the point where the front hub fits into the fork has worn out so bad that i was in serious danger of being chucked over the bars when the front wheel eventually fell off. im a little freaked out but their going to get a new fork im still not sure if i want to ride this thing but i haven't saved up enough money to buy i bike that wont break apart underneath me on the trail (all the components above iv broken on normal rides when i didnt crash) overall i am depressed that i have to ride this thing until i save up the 2000 dollars for a trek fuel ex 5. save your self and never buy this god forsaken bike not only for safety reasons but to save money (iv spent more on repairs in one year than i payed for the bike) but to save yourself the disappointment when it starts holding your progression back

Pros: Solid very upgradeable frame, slack geometry, factory 2.35 tires, 750mm bars

Cons: Chain falls off often I've heard it can be fixed easily with a narrow wide chainring. SL-7 hubs are not the best but there getting it done, saddle is a bit uncomfortable.

Recommendation: Overall great bike, I don't have a lot to complain about, I feel very comfortable on this bike and stable. I'm not easy on anything I ride and this bike seems to be holding up very well!
