    Comments about Diamondback Insight Flat Bar Road Bike:

    Great for rides around town, maybe up to about 20-25 miles. Very stiff and harsh ride. Reasonably light. Handles well, shifting takes some getting used to. Wouldn't recommend for trail riding. Nice looking. Slightly better than entry-level components. Easy to assemble.

    Comments about Diamondback Insight Flat Bar Road Bike:

    This bike is a step up in terms of components compared to the bikes sold by the big box stores and much cheaper than a bike with similar components from a local bike store. Shipping from nasbar was fast. The only glitch was that the quick release for the front wheel was loose in the box and the tightening screw was missing. There were a couple of minor scratches on the frame in areas which were not wrapped. Diamondback customer service shipped a replacement quick release promptly. Bike rolls and shifts smoothly. The color is slightly darker blue than in the pictures and looks really nice. It is a performance hybrid bike that is in between a hybrid and a road bike and has 32c tires which are better suited for paved trails and road. Bike is light weight as it does not have front suspension which is not needed for its intended use. Overall a great value.

      Comments about Diamondback Insight Flat Bar Road Bike:

      I have quite a few bikes, but bought this one for casual evening rides Of under 20 miles. I added a mirror, water bottle cages and a bag under the (comfortable) saddle. It's just what I was looking for..upright position, not too heavy, nice looking and reasonably priced. These bikes have been on the market for quite awhile now, so I feel confident that they've gotten any kinks ironed out. The reviews I read were all positive. I was also very happy at the price I got it at, and how fast Nashbar and UPS got it to me. The bike was easy to put together, and the adjustments were minimal. I was happy to find that the wheels required just a slight trueing. I did, however, have to remove the rear brake cable from it's housing and snip a jammed strand, which might have unnecessarily scared a few novices. I haven't taken it on a long ride yet, but it seems to ride nicely. This version also seems to me to be very similar to the more expensive 2013 Insight 2 model (color, forks), except it has the 21-speed Shimano set-up. Some other reviewers complain about the pedals, but I don't see any problem with them. Not high-end stuff, but this isn't a $900 bike. If they ever break, then I'll upgrade them. Othen than that, seems fine to me.

        Comments about Diamondback Insight Flat Bar Road Bike:

        I just purchased this bike, and haven't yet put it through any long, serious rides. I might update my review when I do. Nashbar and UPS got this bike to me F-A-S-T! My bike was a breeze to assemble. The wheels needed minimal trueing, and the other adjustments were also minimal. I am skilled at this stuff, but I didn't need to be with this bike. My biggest surprise was when I came to realize that this bike is pretty much a 2013 Insight 2 with the 21-speed Shimano components. That makes this is a bit of an upgrade from the Insight 1. That was a nice surprise! The other nice surprise was the price I paid! I am glad I am on their e-mail list.

          Comments about Diamondback Insight Flat Bar Road Bike:

          First of all you have to compare apples to apples and some writers cannot do this. No this bike is not a $3,000 bike so its components do not compare. But for the price its a "high end" bike as compared to what you get in other similar priced bikes. I havce been riding this bike for 2 years now doing 30 mile trips and with the understanding of its price HAVE NO COMPLAINTS.
          Go look at a similar cannondale or Trek at 2x the price
          1-Lighter weight than others in its price
          2-Shifters are found in more expensive bikes
          3-Light weight aluminum
          4-Bar shape is found in more expensive bikes which enables diamondback to make the frame lighter
          5-Quality aluminum rims.

            My normal bike is an Eddy merks so its hard to come down to an off the shelf bike. This bike if OK at the sale price to run to the store and use in the rain. You need to get some peddles and asembly is required, check all parts.
