whats the deal with Diamonback?

DB has been around for ever they must know how to build a good frame! everyone seems to dislike them, maybe because they make low end bike people just think they are crap, but thats why they have raleigh right, I'm about to get the overdrive pro, I'm sure its a great bike does anyone have any reason not to like DB?

I have tried to ride a 2005 Raleigh M50 into the ground. It's heavy, but it still rides like a wonder.

They seem to focus a lot more on affordable which can be good, as long as you know that when you are looking at their top end bike that it is only going to be lower top end of bikes, but for a good price. Im lookin at the insight 3 it just came out in '08 andis the best price I have found for overall quality vs. price.
