Diamondback Bicycles Insight 1 (02-0310063) New 2018 Complete Pavement Bike
  • Not the fastest or lightest bike on the road but I think it's great for my commute and the price point.
  • I'm 5'6" and the small fits me perfectly. I'll update if I encounter anything outrageous but I'm very happy with this one.
  • The bike is light weight, easy to manuver and looks good. I am new to riding but I think I got a great deal
  • The first ride was really nice. I took it eight miles to my LBS to have them check my brake installation and to buy a light, and it rode effortlessly on the road/sidewalk.
  • The gears shift quite smoothly for the most part, and the brakes have a decently tight feel to them.
Diamondback Bicycles Insight 2 Complete Hybrid Bike
  • Overall, if you are looking to do some commuting or cruising around on paved trails and city streets, then this bike will probably fit that need very well
  • This bike is as good as it gets for the money. Its a hybrid but more of a road bike dominant.
  • Outstanding bike for cruising around an RV park or on moderate trails.
  • It is so light it flies on trails! It's a great starter bike for me so that I can customize it.
  • It is basically a city bike, that can be used for light trails.

What customers say about "Components"
Diamondback Bicycles Insight 1 (02-0310063) New 2018 Complete Pavement Bike
  • From what I remember all I needed to do was attach the handle bars, pedals, seat post, and wheels for initial assembly.
  • The tires are neither skinny racing tires or big mountain bike tires. Since I intend to ride on paved roads and smooth trails for fitness and enjoyment, and was looking for a bike that was more agile than a cruiser but less intense than a mountain bike- so far this bike seems about perfect for me.
  • Tires are inflated through Presta style valves, so be sure your air pump can accommodate (you can easily purchase a presta valve adapter).
  • Seems like a well built product, all parts seem well put together and high quality. No complaints at all, would definately recommend this bike!
  • Brakes - good, but like any set of this type they are prone to sequal. Derailers - good enough for this price point...
Diamondback Bicycles Insight 2 Complete Hybrid Bike
  • There are pre-drilled and tapped holes and bolts to install water bottle holders on the frame in two places. Holes for a rear fender or rack are also there as a plus.
  • The bike is really quiet, and the Shimano shifters and Altus Derailleurs are pretty awesome.
  • I have put about 85 miles on the bike so far and am very pleased with the operation of the disc brakes and derailers.
  • The bike is solid, very light, shifts well, the disc breaks are great and overall very good purchase.
  • Light weight but well built. Smooth shifting and great brakes.

Diamondback Bicycles Insight 1 (02-0310063) New 2018 Complete Pavement Bike
  • Bike assembly was extremely easy.
  • It comes boxed with the rear wheel on, the only assembly you do is attaching the front wheel and handlebars and connecting the brakes.
  • The gears and entire back wheel/assembly come put together already. The only assembly required was the front wheel/brakes, and the seat/pedals.
  • Fenders are well designed and do not rattle
  • Comfortable seat and geometry
  • Handle bar could be lighter and higher rise for more comfort
Diamondback Bicycles Insight 2 Complete Hybrid Bike
  • Overall, I am happy with the bike. its light weight and has good balance and looks super!!
  • It comes almost completely assembled, the tires need to be inflated and the handlebars and seat and pedal put on. It comes with all the tools necessary. That's it!
  • It shifts easy and is very lightweight. The front and back wheel come off easily without having to use tools.
  • The bike is great. Smooth riding gears and really like disc brakes, much better than the old pads.
  • Outstanding bike for the price! Easy to put together and tune yourself. Love this quality piece of commuting power!
