I rode the yell out of my Diamondback Outlook. Cheap fork broke after a year or so. I had it rigged together with a hose clamp. Worked that way for a good year and a half or so but I could not ride trails with it that way. Took the bike in to get the fork replaced and decided to just buy a new bike. This one has fork that won't break at the weld. Raleigh Talus 3.0 http://www.raleighusa.com/archive/2012-mountain/talus-3-0-12/ 350$ I had them put some thorn proof tubes and some goo in it. Got to have that riding in NM. I also had them change the shifting system to the one I prefer. Should be able to pick it up on Monday........hopefully before work. I ride to work every day. Can't wait! .
