I would give this product a one star review but I did purchase this product used rather than new and some of the issues I've listed below may be due to the fact that it was a used bmx bike that I purchased. When I received the product the box (which was stated by amazon as open) was open and quite beat up. Once I removed the bike I noticed it had a few scratches and dings but nothing major. I began to put it together when I realized there were a few small parts missing. Wasn't sure if it was because it was a used product or the parts fell out during shipping due to the holes in the box. I ordered the missing bike seat clamp, washer and nut for the front wheel assembly, and a new set of diamondback pegs (since the set I received only had one peg that fit the bike, the other had a smaller hole and wouldn't fit on the front or back wheel) off amazon and received them within a few days.
I began to put the bike together again when I ran into a few more problems. I noticed both...
I'm sure the bike is of decent quality and all but it simply is not chrome. It looked more like painted silver to me. It looks nothing like the chrome bumpers on my Silverado. If it's chrome, its a horrible job. I mean when I was a kid (I am 44 now) I had a Murray with a better chrome finish. I am probably gonna return it but I am gonna wait til my 10 yr old sees it on Christmas morning. If he likes it, we'll keep it. If not, I will return it and go for broke and buy a Haro or Fit, maybe even a PK Ripper. The ONLY reason I ever considered a Diamondback was because this was the least expensive, decent quality, chrome bike I could find. In stores or online. But the more I think about it, even at $217 after taxes this is still overpriced. I was totally into bmx when I was a kid but my son is more of a gamer, I just wanted him to have something better than a Mongoose his grandparents bought at Walmart. We'll see.
Update Christmas Day: After taking it outside so my son could...
Overall seems to be well made and as described. Assembly is a little tricky and the directions are lacking if you have limited experience with bike assembly. However with patience and common sense it came together. Well packaged and quick on delivery.
