Diamondback??? Sorry if I sound rude but Diamondbacks are pretty poor made bikes. I guess if your a beginner its ok, but a Diamondback Viper was my first BMX, and I absolutely hated it. It broke real soon. I now ride a Fatboy Vegas Specialized which is designed and ridden by TJ Laven. I got the Vegas TRX though not the Gold Edition. I fixed it up with some Casino street tires, 4-piece handle-bars, bar-ends and some new grips. I mostly ride street so I also got two Primo pegs. I soooo want a Standard, 2-hip, or a Terrible One. Those are by far the best. Mongoose, Redline & Diamondbacks are the low-end bikes, but hey, as long as you get to ride!
