What are people saying about it?

We discovered this Full Suspension Mountain Bike with 29-Inch Wheels when researching mountain bikes online and this one came up as one of the top ones to get.

While there are hundreds of reviews online, we did find quite a few where people had a lot to say about the Diamondback Recoil 29′er and the majority were 5 star reviews with a few lesser reviews.  Overall it got a score of 4.3 stars out of a possible 5 stars, that’s pretty darn good for something people can be picky about.

Many commented that the bike gave them a great ride on any terrain and it was very easy to shift.

The suspension is excellent for the price point of this type of bike according to some and there were no complaints about how the bike handled on rough terrain.

The only negatives that were mentioned were the seat, many replaced the seat with a more comfortable one and the other complaint was that unless you really know what you’re doing, you can’t really fine tune the bike yourself.
