i can't find its weight and no kick stand. Also no stores in MA, so i'll have to pay for assembly and return shipping if i need to return.

Any opinion about this bike and the seller ?
Ouch......shipping weight is nearly 42lbs. http://www.amazon.com/Diamondback-Bi.../dp/B00ODZB110

Well, not sure if it's any better than Schwinn. Generally all bikes that are new in this price range are very similar to each other in quality and components. I've had good experience with Performance Bikes. But they might be different at different locations since it is a nationwide store.
