    Mission 1

    I am looking at a Diamondback Mission 1 for my first AM ride. The bike is a 2007 brand new hold over at a LBS that they want $1000 for. Is that a decent buy and would this be a good choose for a first AM and first full susp. ride?

    I think that it's fairly solid for the price. If it's really an 07 then it's two model years old and you may be able to talk them down a bit more.

    How much are you looking to spend? Is this the only option?

    Yes it is truly a 07 model. I was looking at upgrading a Kona Shred and kind of stumbled upon this bike. Wasn't really looking at spending the 1000 right at the moment but I feel that this is a pretty good deal, and I would love to have a full suspension.

    hey, I dunno if your set on the DB mission or not, but a friend of mine is selling his... Its a size medium with a much nicer parts spec than the one at your LBS he posted this ad asking 1600.00 but told me he'd take the first 1400.00 that flew past his door. His name is Pat.
