We present you with a list of some of the best available mountain bikes, check them out.

I cannot tell you how awesome this bike is. I was never really a Diamondback fan because I had Diamondbacks growing up and they were all pretty dinky. But this, this is something to behold. My friends dad has a Specialist brand bike that he put $4,300 into and he told me that he wasted $4,000 when he tried my bike. This bike is big and really mean looking! Most badass bike out there! I can’t put everything into words, just go find one and try it out.

Only had the bike for a couple of weeks but pretty happy so far. Very easy to put together, and I have friend who tunes bikes so he was able to give it a quick tune-up (highly recommended otherwise you’ll have squeaky brakes and dodgy gear changes). The bike rides great, very smooth, and I think for the price it can’t be beat. I did take off all the reflectors (they look goofy) and the kick stand (useless weight), and I plan to get a more comfortable saddle – my butt was sore after only an 8 mile ride.

Review:

I bought this so I can start biking to work. When it arrived I was at work. By the time I got home my son had it completely assembled. He said it was very easy to put together. On my second day riding home from work I had to slam on the brakes. Sadly, I flipped over the handle bars, crashed the bike and fractured my shoulder. The good news is, I was wearing a helmet and the bike was remarkably not damaged. All I had to do was put the chain back on and re-aline the front wheel. Before my accident I rode it for 30 miles. The seat that comes with the bike is hard and extremely uncomfortable. I put it right in the garbage and bought a new comfortable seat. If it wasn’t for that this bike would be perfect! I can’t wait till my shoulder is healed so I can get right back on it.

I bought this byke during my last visit to USA. I was a little bit worried about the size of the box mainly because of airlines restrictions but happily there were no problems. It wasn’t even expensive to take it home.

Whe I finally arrived there I took it right to the person who would put it together but he told me he would do it in 2 days because he was very bussy.

I took it home and despite my total ignorance I did it myself ( with my 10 years old son)in less than an hour. It’s simple and everything is there to do it. The bicycle is great and I enjoy using it . Very good product.

Review:

This is the newest model of the Men’s high timber mountain bike from Schwinn. It has a new Shimano gear shift that works very well and the high timber bar has a new curve to it. Otherwise it is just like the previous model. Assembly/instructions are very detailed. If you have no experience putting together a bike like the other reviewer this could pose a challenge but with a little time it easy to. Install the seat, pedals, stem with handlebars, and front tire and you are off! Packaging is excellent and arrived in perfect condition. Great entry level mountain bike. Highly recommended for men or women! Went for an initial 14 mile ride and it performed excellent.

Review:

I purchased this bike in hopes it would hold up to my weight and not destroy my back on the back roads. I live in the country in hilly dirt roads with a lot of bumps. I weight 220lbs and am 6’2″. I am by no means fat as I constantly work out. The cheaper bikes I have bought at Walmart and the like would always break, either the frame, wheels or suspension. This one has held up great and I have had no trouble with it. It is hard to find bikes that are build for bigger people and want to do more than ride on the street. I have put more than 100 miles on it with the odometer that I bought seperatly and am completly suprized about how well it holds up.

Review:

I have nothing negative to say about this bike. Some say that they have some difficulty with assembly but I am a former bike assembler myself and had no problem, if you have a issue a local bike shop will do it for a small fee. I received this bike as a gift in July and I ride it daily. I have used it on paved roads as well as some moderate trails and haven’t run into any problems. I like the weight of the bike also, it might not be feather light but it is easier to pedel when compared to some heavier models. The gears shift smoothly and I have not had any misshifts.

I like Diamondback and always have. The company makes good quality bikes for a fraction of the price of some manufacturers.

Review:

This bike I think it was a very good buy, accessories are high quality and excellent assembly. The only thing I did not like was that the caps of the pedals are plastic and are not very strong but this is totally manageable. The weight is relatively light but otherwise I think that meets the requirements of a mountain bike.

Review:

The bicycle appears to be good quality. The frame is strong and the shifters work smoothly. The only complaint I have is with the shipping estimate. I bought the bicycle as a birthday present, and the estimated arrival date was Friday the 5th or Monday the 8th. When I received the shipment confirmation, the estimated arrival date was the 15th. I was frustrated that there was no one at Amazon or the order fulfiller that I could call to find out why. Tracking showed that the bicycle arrived in our city on the 5th. On the 8th the bicycle was delivered in the afternoon. It is now the 12th and the estimated arrival date on my account still says the 15th. Somebody someplace needs to correct something to lower customer frustration.Victory Vegas Low Adult Dual-Suspension Mountain Bike (26-Inch Wheels)
