Diamondback Mission 4 2011

The Good:

Great parts spec...XO parts are very nice, and I really love the XO brakes. Hammerschmidt!! Fox 36 Talas, Mavic Crossmax ST Wheels...Great specs. Frame is super solid and well balanced. Smooth supsension and Knuckle Box is solid low mantaince design that works! Love the frame and it looks so killer in person. PAINT JOB is A+ Climbs/Pedals well and comes alive on the DH. This bike can do it all and loves to go downhillm Hit jumps and just plain haul,

The Bad:

Not much to complain about, Only detail that was off was; it came with a Talas RLC 120/160 not RC2, I like it but would like more compression adjustments, but I really like the 120/160 as I don't need to change it much and the fork feels great anyway, so no biggy for me. Changed the Carbon bars to FSA Gravity and Thomson 70mm stem. My personal choice on all my bikes....Changed tires but personal...stock tires were wire not kevlar bead, I wish this bike had a DHX 5.0 Air but I really like the RP23 XV the more I ride it.

Overall Review:

Light weight and very balanced for whatever you can do on it, The frame is so smooth, solid and pedals very well. One word to describe the frame would be "Stout". From the Tapered HT and perfect HA @67 with the option to drop it with the Talas to 120, The Knuckle Box is simple, solid, well executed design. Love the single sided pivots for easy access. Still breaking it in and will give more feed back later,
