Diamondback Lux LT 27.5" Women's Mountain Bike - Nashbar Exclusive
The Diamondback Lux LT is a beacon of light in the search for a trail-ready, value-laden, women's-specific mountain bike for both the new rider and MTB enthusiast. The butted aluminum frame features a super-low top tube, a shorter top tube, plus a laid-back seat tube angle to better fit the proportions of the average woman. The Lux LT's 27.5" wheels are the perfect comprise in size as they accelerate faster than 29" wheels and are better able to roll through rough sections and over obstacles than 26" wheels. Complementing the frame is a SR Suntour XCT suspension fork that provides 80mm of travel to soak up the bumps plus a preload adjustment to dial in the ride. A 24-speed Shimano drivetrain ensures you've got the gears to ascend to the loftiest heights as well as roll along smoothly on flat terrain. The Tektro Aries mechanical disc brakes serve up superb all-condition stopping power while trusty aluminum seatpost, stem and handlebars deliver a high quality cockpit.

Comments about Diamondback Lux LT 27.5" Women's Mountain Bike - Nashbar Exclusive:

I purchased this to appease the hubs for date nights at the one-track mountain biking park. Over the past four months I've logged about 300 miles. The bike came easy to put together and the gears (surprisingly) were spot on and needed very little adjusting. The disc brakes had a break in period but after about 30 miles were perfect.

I'm 5'3 and after trying it out at a local store decided on the medium frame instead of the small. I've never had a women's bike before and I've been thrilled with the comfort and control.

Dirt course: I've had it out on our local mountain biking course several times now and it has handled well on the trails, good bite and stopping power. I LOVE the 27.5 tires, it's a great blend for my small build.

Paved: I sold my road bike on a whim, which left me roadbike-less for the last few months. I've been pulling a Burly solo with a toddler in it and ride 15-20 miles at a time. Obviously it's not as snappy and fast as my road bike but I have been pleasantly surprised how well it has performed on the paved trails and I keep up well with the cross bikes. The tread on the tires don't have a lot of friction on the pavement and I don't weigh enough to notice that my suspension doesn't lock.

The lux is a great entry level bike for women and I would recommend it. It we'll built with decent components for the price.

    Comments about Diamondback Lux LT 27.5" Women's Mountain Bike - Nashbar Exclusive:

    These are really a nice bike. Solid component set and easy to tune. We bought one for our pre-teen daughter in March and I liked it so much that I replaced my wife's 20-year old bike with one in July. The 27.5 inch wheels are super fast compared to her 26 inch. They mostly ride paved trail and gravel now, but this will allow my daughter to begin trying some single-track with me. Great product for the price. I am surprised how light this bike is.

    Comments about Diamondback Lux LT 27.5" Women's Mountain Bike - Nashbar Exclusive:

    I picked up this ride in dmall for my daughter. She is only 9 but is nearly 5 feet tall. The bike is a little big but she rides it fine. She mainly rides paved trail but has been following me on some single track lately. This is a very solid bike. Frame is rock solid with good welds and looks nice. Stand over is excellent. First mechanical disks I have seen but they work well and I think will be easy to maintain. Fork is just ok. Trigger shifters are the way to go. Easy maintenence. Derailers also seem fine. Pedals are cheap junk but I am digging everything else on this bike. Very pleased. Should get her through high school or 6ft, whatever comes first.
