If you are a regular visitor of my blog, you have undoubtedly noticed that Diamondback’s bike offerings figure prominently into the discussion.
Diamondback is a household name that has built a name on reliability.
With such a huge following, it would be natural that people would want to know how much a Diamondback bike costs.
For a long time, emails have been flooding my inbox inquiring on how much a Diamondback cost and the most useful response I give to my readers is “What kind of riding they want to do.” Are you looking for a commuter bike, a mountain bike, or are you into serious training or racing?
The second question I usually ask my readers is how much they are willing or want to spend. After all, you can buy a beach cruiser or several hundreds of dollars or a baseline racer for several hundred.
While some of the cyclists have an idea of what they want to achieve, have a budget and bike of their preference in mind, a majority of the cyclists and wannabe cyclists do not have a clue on what they are getting.
And this reason, we are going to expound more on the budgetary requirements of a Diamondback bike. But in case you’re curious, we have reviewed diamondback bikes here in this post. You can go ahead and read the buying guide.
General Pricing Guide for Different Diamondback Bikes
A decent road bike will cost you in the region of $350-700.
With such pricing, expect the Diamondback roadster to feature a lightweight aluminum alloy frame.
For the modes at the higher end of the price range, you can expect the aluminum frame to feature extra tube butting, hydroformed tubes to enhanced structural strength, profiled chainstays and slim seat stays.
If you are in search of a decent Diamondback that you will not have to keep repairing every time you use it, get ready to shell out at least $1000.
The Diamondback mountain bikes are generally expensive because they are designed for the rough terrain, and naturally, they will need extra features and tougher materials to handle the trails and mountains.
With a modern Diamondback expect to find a hardtail-rigid gear, accompanied by a set of robust forks and this makes it an ideal option for climbing as well as cross-country riding.
You can get an awesome single-speed Diamondback bike starting at 400 dollars. They are relatively cheaper, thanks to their minimalistic and simplistic nature.
With a decent quality kid’s bike featuring 12-inch wheels, expect to shell anything between $140-200. This is for kids aged between 3-8 years.
For the larger bikes with 20-24-inch wheel, the bike will cost you above $240.
Adult Bike Pricing
Under 200 dollars
At this price level, the bikes are designed from steel; they are heavy, constructed from cheap materials and requires constant maintenance.
200b to 350 dollars
At this price range, you can get some fantastic recreational bikes, some comfortable, but they are basic and ideal as entry-level models.
350 to 600 dollars
The bikes are this price range generally have good quality, are reliable and fast.
The mountain bikes at this price range are still basic but strong enough to handle the rough terrains.
600 to 1000 dollars
At this price range, expect top-of-the-range models, that are not only light and fast but have admirable reliability.
Over 1000 dollars
All bikes over 1k marks are light, fast, and come with superior technology and components such as the carbon frame and fork.
Generally, we do not recommend spending less than 300 dollars on any bike, regardless of the brand. In any case, bikes at this price range are flimsy, have poor quality in terms of part and components, and will require regular maintenance, which will end up costing more.
But of course, take my view as just a view. Becasue, now a days, there are bunch of brands that have come out and producing excellent quality bikes that’s becasue competition is getting really stronger.
Anyways, cost of a DB bike depends on the type / model you choose but I tried to give you an general idea of an estimate cost.
