Checking a good deal or no? Diamondback Adult Response XE 2014 Mtb $299.
So this is on sale right now at Dicks Sporting, for $299 and a friend is considering it for his wife. Looks like a fine starter as far as I know, for the price, and if she rides it a lot may just replace it next year. I don't expect it to be perfectly assembled or tuned, but I can help with that.
Is there better deals - better new bikes in the same range?

FB4K - Every October we wrench on donated bikes. Every December, a few thousand kids get bikes for Christmas. For many, it is their first bike, ever. Every bike, new and used, was donated, built, cleaned and repaired. Check us out on FaceBook: FB4K.
