I bought this bike a week ago and haven't stopped riding. I ride to work everyday and I get there a little faster now than I was on my response! It is a great bang for the buck. You don't have to change a thing but since I'm hard on my bikes I already upgraded the grips pedals rear shock fork brakes and hubs definatley keeping the wheels the same I love the white! Would recommend to anyone.
Got this bike last week and can't quit riding it. I love it. I take it down single track in the mountains above my city and it handles perfectly. For the price you can't beat it. No regrets buying this bike.
I'm a trail cyclist the bike could use a wider handle bar morr gears for uphills for a slightly heavy bike. But for the money this full suspension bike is a worth investment. I like the speed lock on the forks although the rear shocks needs a upgrade. Overall the bike is a great buy. Highly recomended for the price and quality.
It had been several years since I owned a solid mountain bike and after carefully considering several within my budget, the Diamondback Recoil was my choice. It has extras that you won't find on other brand bikes for the same price, such as disc brakes, upgraded rims and tires and Shimano components. The SR Suntour forks are a little spongy compared to the rear shock, which is far more adjustable; the bike is also a little on the heavy side. Other than the above mentioned I think that this is a great full suspension starter bike for the price. It certainly beats all others in it's price range.
