    What the heck kind of stuff is this? It's almost the exact same as the 2005 model, except they painted the frame a brown and made it glossy, and put horizontal dropouts on it. They also put the Dirt Jam Comp on there, when the '05 had the Dirt Jam Pro.

    Glad I got the '05er.

    a buddy of mine has one and he seems to like it. the price is right for the parts spec and the frame is decent.

    when i think about diamondback, i think back to 1997 and their bmx bikes. My friend had a DB with bearclaw pedals and a threaded headset, it ate my shins and the bars rattled. Ever since then i have been biased against em. I havent seen this particular bike in person so i dunno what exactly i'm talking about. :(

    a bike is a bike, and if it was all i had, i'd ride it with pleasure.

    when I think about diamond back I think back to 1984 and Harry Leary, then I remember they are in G.I. Joes stores.....

    04 or 05, can't remember. whichever the first year for it was. He, for some reason, tore down his heckler to upgrade some of the parts on it he liked it so much...I think he just wanted to try the hardtail thing for a while and he EP'd the bike thru the shop we were working at at the time so he didn't really have a lot of money in it at all. Turns out, he rode it way more than his dually. Unfortunately, he's since quit riding all together so it just collects dust last I heard.

    The MTB Assault premiered last year. :D But, Diamondback made a BMX bike with the same name, but now that one's discontinued I guess.
