Strengths:    Comfort, and design fits my needs. I had back surgery years ago, so the geometry works for me.
Suspension is good, I added a better seat with a spring too.

Weaknesses:    Seat sucks.
The front shifting isn't smooth. I'm an X BMX racer, so I maintain my bike myself. The back derailer is smooth, the front sucks.
I get it adjusted to where it ishifts up or down ok, but not both. Lol

Bottom Line:   
Over all it is really a good bike for the money. If your just starting, or to ride for exercise it is a good bike. I ride on a stand a lot, and on the road. Really fits my needs, but with a few upgrades can be great. I haven't had any mechanical failures. Prolly 6 years old and several thousand miles.

Strengths:    I have rode many cheaper bikes. I had a Huffy Thunder Ridge Mountain Bike for over 10 years before I bought this one. I have had this one now for 3 years. I have put a couple thousand miles on it already and it has done very well. My longest ride has been 45 miles and it did great. I needed a good compromise between road and mountain bike. I tried a friends road bike but it didn't meet my needs.

Weaknesses:    It did take me a few attempts to get my rear gear tweaked where it didn't jump gears. Other than that it has been trouble free. The original seat left some to be desired. I did change the original seat as soon as I got it for one that was more comfortable to me for some distance.

Bottom Line:   
Great Bike for the price for an intermediate rider. I enjoy riding some 30 mile + rides when time and weather permits.

Strengths:    Smooth, Shimano shifters

Bottom Line:   
I have owned my Edgewood for a little over 2 years now. I have put over 2000 miles on it and it still rides like the day I bought it. Changes gears smoothly and is a very comfortable ride. I've ridden quite a few different hybrids and this is the best one I've had for under $500.

Strengths:    It looks nice. The comfort ride suspension works well. The handlebars and grips are comfortable.

Weaknesses:    Terrible front derailleur shifting renders this bike unrideable. Luckily, I had purchased the extended warranty plan, which included a no-lemon policy. They recently refunded my purchase price (in the form of a gift card), less the cost of the warranty plan. This is probably the first time that I am glad about buying an extended warranty.

Bottom Line:   
This is a 2010 Diamondback Edgewood LX. It is comfortable, except for the saddle itself. It begins to chafe within a minute of riding. An added gel saddle cover helped. It looks nice. The front derailleur shifting is absolutely horrible. It has been worked on by every technician available at the retailer I purchased it at. They had it in their shop for almost six months of the last year with no positive results. I had an independent bicycle dealer look at it as well. They were unable to do anything to help it. I was able to ride it approximately 3 miles in one year of ownership.

Similar Products Used:   I have a Schwinn Varsity, purchased new in 1973. As heavy as that old Schwinn is, it rides and functions like a dream compared to the Diamondback Edgewood LX.
