Hello from Bay Area, Calif

Hello,

I am new to the scene. My wife and I just bought a bike each today thinking we can enjoy the summer riding, getting fit.

Please let me know if the bikes I bought are good or should I have any better alternatives I should exchange them for?

I bought the Diamondback Trace for $333 + Tax

My wife got the Diamondback Clarity $300 + Tax at Sports Authority

We would usually be riding to work (about 4-6 miles/day to and fro). Plan to use them for city riding and probably for camping trips.

Appreciate any feedback

Hi there Spdhanraj,

Your Diamondback bikes are both entry level bikes and should be appropriate for most urban commutes.

Diamondback is owned by Pon, the same company the owns Raleigh, and is a reputable bicycle brand...

Welcome to Bike Forums.

Have much fun with your new bikes.

Your first bike is a learning bike.

I can't find encouraging reviews online for the TRACE
