    Not an expert on this type of bike,but the brakes stick out as being not so good to me.

    Jenson has the 2007 model for $1649 so it seems like a decent deal.

    Here's a pro review...

    Seems to me if there's nothing wrong with them they're worth keeping until they break.

    Nice bike for the price

    I just paid the $1600 and change price from Jenson and I thought I was getting a great deal, so $1300 is very reasonable, in my opinion. Just took this bike up to Whistler and it did everything I hoped for as my son and I are intermediate park riders. It handled speed and drops well. There are a number of reviews of the Diablo 2 on MTB review. Take a look. The only thing I disagree with is its capability climbing- it is a 42 lb bike afterall so its a bear going uphill, even in the granny gear. It doesn't like to go slow on features or hairpin corners like my son's and my Giant Reign or Yeti 575. That being said, I think it's a perfect park bike for moderate to high speed corners and jumping. Great value for the money spent!
