Diamondback Recoil 29er Mountain Bike
Full-suspension mountain bikes don't need to be overly complicated and the Diamondback Recoil 29er shows just how that's done. The frame is built using trusted 6061-T6 aluminum alloy, so you know it's strong, while the formed and butted tubing makes sure to save weight wherever possible. The SR Suntour XCT suspension fork delivers 100mm of travel while the four inches of rear suspension will do wonders to take the edge off roots and rocks on the trail.

Shimano's a name you can trust in the drivetrain department and the 3x8-speed shifters, front and rear derailleurs, and cassette work in unison to provide smooth, reliable, and responsive shifting through its 24 gears. With a triple crank up front and an 11/32T cassette on the rear hub you've got a wide range of gear options to claw your way up the steepest climbs and then put your bike to the test on the way back down. Worry not about slowing down as the Tektro Aires mechanical disc brakes are more than up to the challenge of scrubbing speed and keeping you under control no matter the weather conditions.

Big, 29" wheels keep on turning and are the latest innovation in mountain biking as they reduce rolling resistance and decrease the angle of attack by allowing you to roll over obstacles, like logs or rocks, easier and faster. The Recoil serves up a rock-solid wheel option sporting reliable SL7 aluminum doublewall rims, 32-hole SL7 aluminum hubs, plus tried-and-true 14g spokes laced in a 3x pattern. Rounding out the wheelset is a set of Schwalbe Rapid Rob 29x2.25 tires that sport an aggressive, all-around tread pattern for incredible bite plus a kevlar belt to maximize puncture resistance. Now get out there and enjoy one of life's greatest pleasures - riding a bike out in the woods.
  • Hand-built 6061 T-6 aluminum full-suspension frame is strong, light, and features 4" of travel
  • SR Suntour XCT 100mm suspension fork and Kindshock coil rear shock are perfect to smooth out rocky, rooty, and rugged terrain

A great bike for the price. Very nimble for a 29 inch.
Ride frequently on off road and pavement does well on both and handles well. Full suspension is functional,had the bike put together by local bike shop. Smooth riding but needs a softer seat.

      I purchased this bike to get a better ride on the rocky,rooted trails I frequently ride on. It is much more comfortable to ride than my old hard tail. All the components work well and I am totally satisfied with this purchase,especially considering the low price. I love the bike.

      Comments about Diamondback Recoil 29er Mountain Bike:

      Overall this is a very good bike for a very good price. The front shocks squeak and the rear shock clanks on rebound. Other than that, I am very happy with my purchase. I've only ridden 200 trail and street miles so far, but I haven't had any problems. The brakes and shifters work very well.

      Great bike for the $, Not light but it moves well on the trail. You will not have trouble keeping up with your buddies. Heavy and slow on paved climbs, but once on the trail it rolls really well with the 29ers

          Comments about Diamondback Recoil 29er Mountain Bike:

          For a few years I'd been looking to buy a new mtb. Saw they had 25% off bikes and took a chance. Read some reviews, watched some youtube videos and hoped I wouldn't be disappointed.

          Showed up on my doorstep a few days later and assembled it over the weekend. Not my first time building a bike, was my first time adjusting disc brakes. Took about 30 minutes to get the brakes just right. Shifting was smooth, only needed minor adjusting.

          Road around the house a little, haven't had time to take it on the trail just yet. Does feel heavy but it's not like I'm riding the GFNY on it.

          Comments about Diamondback Recoil 29er Mountain Bike:

          So this bike certainly won't win any weight competitions, and the components are entry level, but its a great bike to build on. First the bad, the fork weighs a ton, I had a pretty high end fork and swapped and it was comical at the difference in weight. I have used this same model fork before on a hardtail and while heavy, it actually preformed pretty well. I also didn't even try the shock, I knew I wouldn't be satisfied so I added an air chamber type and it works well. I have used the same rims before and they are terrible, first good hit and they are done. I had Mavics so on they went. Basically I guess I just bought a frame, lol.
          Mechanical brakes and crank are OK, seat, hubs, post, bars, and stem are also fine. I bought it to put my good parts onto (took these parts and help convert my hardtail to a gravel bike) because lets face it, its cheaper than a frame, and the frame isn't bad at all. Look at it as an OK bike that will accept good upgrades when the time comes, and it will come! One other thing, the shock linkage had zero grease, should add a bit of something there (even though they don't move much). The main pivot is a bearing so not needed there.
