There's a couple threads about similar things on this page, scroll down and read through them...

People usually recommend Haro, DK, Fit, etc.
Diamondback I guess makes some good high end bikes, but not really low end ones. They made some nice looking ones a while back, but I don't know about the quality...

diaback does make great highend bikes but they do make a couple decent lowend models aswell. go on their website, i thinks its the orion that has some really good parts at a great price. and as for the quality, eve ntho ull hear 10000 different opinions, the quality of their bikes are great, ive owned a few in my time biking and they've never giving me too much of a problem.

db's complete bikes are not to my liking. my mate has a 05' skindog and it's parts are a joke. they are always breakin. the stem is like, flimsy as i ever seen a stem and don't get me started on the 3pc. 1wall rims, huge gearing, massive bars, heavy as hell(and i'm not afraid of weight on a bike), and the rear cog is already packing up. this would possibly be normal for like, ++riders, but this guy just bunny hops and 1foot drops at the most. taking this into account, i don't like db's.

Yes, I would. The Orion 05' would be my best pick.
