If the brakes are weak talk to a bike shop about new pads rather than the brakes themselves; a good bike shop will help you and be nice.
You do not need fancy pedals but you may want some fancy grips by Ergon (my favourites) they have a flat part for your hand that I love.
No kickstand!? They should come standard like seat belts!
Is assembly required?
It says “IMPORTED”…imported from where?
According to the Amazon page for it:
Ready Ride bikes shipped 95 percent assembled.
Expect bike assembly to take 30-60 minutes depending on your skill level.
It also says it’s just 4 steps.
just found a youtube video for “Diamondback Ready Ride Mountain Bike Assembly” and it does look pretty easy! (handlebar, seat, tire, pedals.)
FYI. Looks like this is the manufacturer’s site:
I haven’t had a bike with a kickstand for over 40 years.
Why are all the measurements in mm? We live in America, not Europe or Canada. I understand inches not mm!
I got my fiance a vital two from Diamondback yeah there was no kickstand or water bottle holder but the bike assembled very quickly in four stages other than find tweaking it it seems like it’s in very good condition and quality if I didn’t already have a trek I would buy this bike for bike trail and daily use. You can always buy the accessories you want later.
is there ever a small size available?
A better question is why the US is not! 95% of the world is on the metric system.
Something to ponder as I sit here with my liter bottle of water, watching my kid run a 5 kilometer race. In all seriousness, the complaint about this woot conveying measurements in metric is valid. Just as I wouldn’t try selling something in Mexico without providing details of the product in Spanish, so too should things being sold to Americans be described in a context commonly understood by Americans.
What is the maximum weight allowed on the bike?
American kids are almost exclusively taught in metric measurements now. Hell, they were teaching us metric back in the 70s. It’s the international unit of measure.
[VMod edit: no need for name calling or stereotypes.]
Wish there was a small. I am 5’ 6" and don’t want to take a chance with the medium size.
“All of our bikes are warrantied to three-hundred pounds. You can ride our bikes if you weigh over three-hundred pounds yet damage to bike frame and bike parts due to rider weight will not be covered by Diamondback’s warranty.”
Absolutely the best post ever. Why President Carter punked out when he said we were going metric I will never know. Our system is just too hard, complicated and totally arbitrary and no one else uses it.
