    Replacement Rims?

    Just curious, if I wanted to replace a rim, with a stock rim, can this be purchased somewhere?

    Stock ull have to go a bike shop that's a dealer for ur bike brand. And in my experience u can only get a whole wheel, not just a rim (which is usually still pretty cheap).

    Head to the lbs u bought the bike (or find one what sells it) and have them order it for you.

    If the price turns out to be over 100 it will be worth while to upgrade your wheelset rather than paying for the rim and labor to install. This is an easy task as even $150 wheelsets are lighter than the junk that comes with these Diamondbacks.

    can you recommend a decent upgrade in that price range?
    Would rather get a tubeless rim, but we are creeping up to the 500 mark

    150 sounds great. Honestly I am new to this and don't know the going rates for a small upgrade from the stock rims.
    I would PREFER tubeless rims, but they are way expensive.

    from what I have seen, most of the rims that come with Diamondbacks are junk anyway. replacing a junk rim with a junk rim is a waste of money. this question really has nothing to do with Diamondback specifically, so you might want to check in the "wheel" forum or a wheel-size specific forum, or a forum that relates to your riding style. you will get a broader range of helpful input there.
