I have an old Univega that I beat on pretty hard when I was younger and now that I have kids (one old enough to ride and twins to go in a trailer) I need a new bike. I would like to get another HT MTB but kind of looking at a Comfort bike. I dont have much to choose from in my area (especially in the $ range I am looking for, $200-$300) but I have a Dick's Sporting Goods right by my house. I have been looking at the Diamonback bikes and they dont seem to be that bad. Inparticular I am looking at the Outlook, Wildwood, or Sorento, leaning towards the Sorento. I dont see much in this forum about Diamondbacks but would like to hear some YEA's or NAY's.
I will be using it mostly on paved roads pulling a trailer, some well packed trails and a little off road, muddy trails.
What do you guys think, can you help me out???
