Do you like city or forest riding? Doesn’t matter, hybrids make every terrain smooth and enjoyable. Hybrid bikes are getting more and more popular. It’s because of the price and also because you can drive with hybrids everywhere. No matter what! So, let’s see what’s good and why.

Diamondback Bicycles 2015 Trace Complete Dual Sport Bike

Very easy and strong bike. Strong, doesn’t mean it is very heavy. It has 21 gears, so you can drive basically everywhere. Pedal like nuts on mountains as if you were on road.

Like all bikes, it’s frame is made of 6061 Alloy. It has big, 700c rims which give good rolling power. And the main thing, that makes this bike is worth buying – disc brakes!

But keep your eye on the price. Something around $400 is a very good price for this bike. It will last for many years. And like I’ve told, Diamondback has some good warranties of their bikes.

 

Wow! It is Carbon! It is a nice bike from Diamondback. Its frame is made of carbon so it’s light and durable. It also has Carbon Fiber fork and a tapered headset. Shimano Tiagra SL-4600 shifters are also quite top-notch.

One customer says brakes need to be changed for better-stopping performance. The second customer says that brakes are good and that the bike is very easy to assemble. The third customer said that the Diamondback 2015 Interval Performance Hybrid Bike has lasted over 400 miles and he can’t say anything bad about it!
