This is my 5th Diamondback; the 3rd from Dick's. I'm really happy I stepped up another level for a better hybrid. This Interval Elite is 11 lbs. lighter than my old Schwinn hybrid, and the improvement was immediate and riding it is like a dream. I do most of my riding on the side roads out in this rural area, so I need something fast and light. I don't have to dismount and push up most hills anymore. The weight advantage eliminates that problem.
Also, I'm glad I took advantage of the in-store setup and adjustment. The technician found several items out of adjustment.
I've already replaced many parts to make the bike more comfortable for my style of riding. The handlebar grips were on backwards, and I replaced them with Specialized dual-density grips I had on another bike.
I'm learning to take advantage of the Interval Elite's components and things can only get better.
