Diamondback Insight 1 Performance Hybrid Bike Review

Posted September 21, 2013 by admin in Bike Reviews

Diamondback Insight 1 Performance Hybrid BikeI recently bought the Diamondback Insight 1 Performance Hybrid Bike. I’m very pleased with this bike and it seems like a great deal for the price, comparable trek bikes are more expensive and have less features from what I’ve seen. This bike is a mix between a road bike and a mountain bike and it functions very well for commuting and training.

The Diamondback Insight 1 Performance comes with a Butted Aluminum Performance Hybrid frame that is pretty light. It also comes with a Shimano Crankset and shifters. The bike itself weights around 25 pounds.

I got this bike mainly to start commuting to my new job which isn’t too far away from where I live. I choose the Diamondback Insight 1 Performance Hybrid Bike because I had a few friends that were really into biking that recommended it and said it was a pretty good bike for the money and that it was light which was a big plus when I have to haul it up the stairs at work. This bike has actually got me riding trials and going out cycling purely for the pleasure of it, that’s how smooth the ride is.
