    The best thing about this bike is you can find them everywhere on clearance or used for half the price or lower. At 1700 retail, this bike is mediocre. Find it for 750-1000, however, and it's one of the best values in mountain biking. Throw tubeless tires on it, inflate the rear shock to 25% sag for climbing/pedaling, and maybe throw a telescopic dropper post on instead of a cabled hydraulic dropper and you are ready for some serious MTB adventures

    Pros
    Thru axles. Great RaceFace/RockShox/SRAM componentry. 66,5 headtube angle and 2.35 tires stock for serious trail riding

    Cons
    100mm rear shock with no climb assist, so you have to over inflate. Non-tubeless ready tires stock. Not particularly good routing options for dropper cables. "Heavy" single pivot linkage although the suspension works well and isn't as heavy as it looks.

    Buy the comp if you have 1400.00 if not get the atroz 2 trade Suntour forks and have the same bike for 600 less good day yawlllllllll

    Pros
    I bought the diamondback atroz 2, nos from last year (2017). It came with a 1x9 sram drivetrain narrow wide front ring with chain guide, shock is a Sr Suntour raidon air (excellent entry level) and the fork is junk it's the xcm I think! but that's why I got the atroz 2, Suntour has an upgrade program on their website so i got the raidon xc lo air for 199.00 (100.00 off), holy cow!!! Hydraulic 180/160mm brakes, single pivot design super playful fun bike I absolutely love it, I ended up with a very very capable bike with full air suspension for just over $850.00 new and its a quality 120mm all mountain if you like single pivot light abuse machines love the mild aggressive setup. Two thumbs up diamondback? and Suntour

    Cons
    Same reason I loved it is probably why someone else will hate it i.e... Comes with cheap fork (Suntour upgrade program fixes this) cheap grips planned on changing anyway,cheap pedals was going raceface Chester anyway and all the other cheap and routinely changed things like fork seat and so on but the frame bars brakes cranks chain drivetrain all excellent is heavy but fork fixes almost 4 pounds of weight

    Great bike to get into mountain biking if you are on a budget. The bike is easily upgradable. The potential to be an awesome bike is there. I've had the atroz since about April 2017 and have upgraded as my budget allows.

    Pros
    Easily upgradable. Low cost. Great reliability. Hydraulic brakes.

    Cons
    Slightly on the heavy side. Entry level components.

    If you can get a brand new one for around $900 then it's a decent deal.

    Pros
    A great beginner bike.

    Cons
    Heavy. Not gonna turn any heads.

    Beginner to upper mid level riders would get good use out of the bike stock. It's easy to see the upgrades you want - but this has most everything you actually need for singletrack riding.

    Pros
    Sturdy Frame, Suspension is limited but simple. Great for a new inexperienced rider to the mid-range hobbyist. Im 200lbs and I have yet to have an issue with the suspension on aggressive rides.

    Cons
    Brakes came very weak from stock. Will bleed them and see if I can tighten them up a bit. But this will the the first upgrade. Seat post has a hard time clamping solid under my weight.

    Buy it if your looking for an entry level trail MTB in 1x11 that doesn't break the bank.

    Pros
    1x11 in an affordable package. Bike comes mostly assemble and only takes about 1/2 hour to finish.

    Cons
    Unless you are really strong you are going to need something bigger than a 42 on the rear. I put wolftooth's 49 cog on which gave me a great granny gear for steep climbs. Chain needs to be made longer (116 for me).

    2017 Atroz Comp
    As always, you get what you pay for... That being said, this is a great bike for the price! Got this bike last week and just broke it in on its first singletrack ride and it held up really well. Granted I live in Florida where it is fairly flat so this is a bit of tongue in cheek for a review. Regardless of location, there were plenty of roots, ruts, and ramps to run up and down on and for my lack of overall skill, this bike performed perfect for me! The gears seem perfectly spaced for getting to the speed that one would want, at least here in Florida, seeing as how the bike only has 11 gears to cycle through. Love this bike though!

    Pros
    Great entry level comp mountain bike

    Cons
    The detailer allows for the chain to jump off the sprocket at its extreme end and get caught between the sprocket and spokes if you're not paying attention to where your gears are at...

    Got it brand new for $700 off. I'd say it's worth $1,000. It rides the trails near my house very well.

    Pros
    Value

    Cons
    Seat hurts butt

    Highly recommend if someone can't invest over $1000 for a FS bike. It allows me to go full squish on the trails without breaking the bank.

    Pros
    Great components, 650b,
    nimble downhill, great traction uphill
    great entry level FS bike
    Great value

    Cons
    A little heavy, but for the money, no complaints!
