Strengths:    Can't give any real strengths yet. Just got it and I'm having some of the well written of problems. Although I can say the Edgewood feels comfortable and for the price will work out fine for my needs, exercise.

Weaknesses:    The assembly guide is worthless. It gives you some static adjustments which is common sense for anyone with a little mechanical ability. Of course you're told the bike was assembled and tested at the factory, then disassembled and put in the box for shipment. I can say the bicycle I took out of the box had never been assembled and tested, period. The cable on the derailleur was so wrong it would have been impossible and was to test the bike.

Bottom Line:   
The Diamondback Edgewood Hybrid Bike is a good bike for the price. You get what you pay for. I paid $240. at Sports Authority internet site, while it was on special sale. I think the company has a very poor QC department. Would I recommend this bike, I don't think so. It's too much of a crap shoot as to what condition you may receive it in. If buying one is something you really want to do, assembled and tested is the only way I would ever buy a Diamondback product.

Strengths:    Light, Fast and maneuverable

Weaknesses:    front derailleur could not be adjusted not to skip the 2nd chain ring, make lots of noise or not shift to 2nd chain ring on 1st or second try.

Bottom Line:   
The store tech tried for about 90 minutes to get this adjusted. He said he had never seen one do this so we grabbed the other bike in my size. It had the same problem. They said they would order new derailleurs to fix the issue. I returned to the store and found both bikes on the rack for sale without new derailleurs. I am afraid to purchase one from them now.

Strengths:    Comfortable. Like the gear ratios

Weaknesses:    Chain skips to the point riding this is frustrating. This started a less than 90 days. Have not gotten satisfaction from Dick's or Diamondback.

Bottom Line:   
2008. Like the gearing and the ride. However, the chain skips, multiple trips to Dicks, call and letters to Diamondback have not resulted in a fix.

Strengths:    Price, 700c, adjustible and sleek-looking Spinner fork (2007 model), ergo grips are nice, red color, tires, reasonable range of adjustibility for suspension and stem, weight, strong enough brakes,

Weaknesses:    Crankset feels a bit flexy when pounding uphill, seat is too chunky, suspension seatpost, Acera rear derailleur is sometimes tricky to adjust, shifters can be uncomfortable for some-especially during quick shifting, threaded fork (when threadless are unltimately better and cheaper) newer models than 2007 are worse...I spent too much on parts to play with.

Bottom Line:   
The 2007 model is great and I used it to experiement with learning bicycle assembly. The adjustible Spinner fork is a nice addition under the low price tag and operates as well as it looks. I wasn't looking for the fastest bike out there, but this peforms better than expected. The gear range and the tire setup is perfect to go anywhere that isn't too extreme. The low-end wheels stay true for a decent amount of time. I myself changed up a lot of the bike (spending too much and learning bicycle assembly), but the frame always feels great and compact while still being responsive. The bike looks partly like some sleeker and faster MTB 29er hardtail.

The newer models lose the 8-speed, and Spinner fork, which were major highlights of the bike. They also replaced the retired Acera derailleur with an Altus, which isn't of any improvement. The 2007 Edgewood seemed like the better bike...infact it's pretty much the higher priced/grade 2009 Menona without the discs and crankset.

Strengths:    The bike is easily adjustible to fit the flexibility of my knee. Enough gear choices to keep a good pace when dealing with hills and wind. Solid brakes. Shifting gears is very simple.

Weaknesses:    Slight gear slippage after 3 months, but nothing that is a problem.

Bottom Line:   
I am getting back into riding a bike after knee replacement surgery. My 15 year old Huffy mountain bike was not going to cut it. The Edgewood has been excellent. Gears were well tuned by the tech at Dick's. The bike has been easy to ride even in the winds along Lake Erie.
