My LBS has 2 bikes that I have tested and I like them both. Any thought on either the Diamondback Coil EX 2007 and the KHS FXT Trail 2007. Both of these bikes are $390-$400 and appear to be lower end of the full suspension bikes that come from name brands. They felt similar with the KHS feeling a bit smoother. After adjusting the rear shock on the Diamondback it felt better and the change seemed to make it turn a bit quicker. The bike might have felt better if the seat post long enough for someone over 6 ft.
I am 55yrs old and weigh 195. Although I have over 15yrs of Motocross behind me I most likely will be a cruiser and will not be too hard on the equipment. Racing downhill will not be in my future. I am not that familiar with all the brands so if you know of any other brands or models that would be any better full suspension bikes in this price range I would appreciate the advice. Comments on these too bikes are also welcome.
