The hardtails a much better bet

very decent, certainly for that money - voted hot

I would agree, price point of any full suspension would mean a very heavy bike with cost savings in the gearing as well...the hardtail would be a much more satisfying entry level MTB.
#4
for the same price, shouldn't the full suspension be a better bike?
#5
Anyone any idea on frame sizes for a person who is 5 foot 8 inches tall and reasonable broad shouldered?

No because the rest of the bike's spec has to be reduced.

From this website I got this

The Competitive Fit The Eddy Fit The French Fit
Seat tube range c-c 46.9 - 47.4 48.1 - 48.6 49.8 - 50.3
Seat tube range c-t 48.3 - 48.8 49.5 - 50.0 51.2 - 51.7
Top tube length 63.7 - 64.1 63.7 - 64.1 64.9 - 65.3
Stem Length 12.9 - 13.5 11.8 - 12.4 12.0 - 12.6
BB-Saddle Position 70.6 - 72.6 69.8 - 71.8 68.1 - 70.1
Saddle-Handlebar 61.0 - 61.6 61.8 - 62.4 63.5 - 64.1
Saddle Setback -0.2 - 0.2 1.0 - 1.4 0.5 - 0.9



These are my measurements I think

Gender M
Inseam 28.5 in
Trunk 41 in
Forearm 15 in
Arm 19.5 in
Thigh 22.5 in
Lower Leg 22.5 in
Sternal Notch 54 in
Total Body Height 68 in


Think the 'sternal notch' may be out by a few inches. No idea what all those numbers mean in the fit bit first quoted above.

What makes the hardtail a better choice rather than the full suspension?

What makes the hardtail a better choice rather than the full suspension?


Better spec, much lighter, much more compliant ride. 90% of people don't need full-suspension

Cheapo full-suspension bikes are terrible
#11
Remember too that, you will lose momentum with a full suspension bike. You push your rear into the seat and that energy is sort of used to propel you forward. If you get a full suspension bike, that energy is dissipated and less useful.
#12
I don't see where the hardtail has better spec. Specs are the same, only a weight difference.

No she doesn't.
She may have a bike with 16 inch wheels. Put her on a 16 inch adult bike & she won't be able to reach the handlebars.

Haven't a clue about bikes so any advice would be great.The Diamond Back Outlook Hardtail Mountain Bike 18".Would this be any good for me with a 29" inside leg?Also,would it be any good for riding on roads as I won't be using it as an offroader?Is it better than http://www.amazon.co.uk/Silverfox-PRIM26-Primate-Mens-Bike/dp/B001BB4PQC/ref=wl_it_dp?ie=UTF8&coliid=I3DBCUEIN6UQBD&colid=3PU815JXUZQCL which I am waiting for to come back into Stock?
#18
From what I can see the frame size on this is 18" not 16"


Shame there are no better specs available eg weight? is it aluminium frame? what year of Outlook is it etc.
banned#19
Go for the hardtail everytime over a cheap dual suspension. And preferably if you're doing nothing but riding on roads/90% roads etc, get one with lockout suspension. It'll make things LOADS easier for you.

I used to have a cheap dual suspension bike, and used to get embarassed by girls flying past me. Soon as I shelled out for my Felt Q720, things changed immediately, no more 'Mr I get left for dust by girls'!

You may think 'yeah, but they all have 21 gears, v-brakes, and quick release wheels, so they're the same spec!' but trust me, the quality of the componments has a HUGE effect on the ride.
#20
At this price the hardtail is fine. It doesn't specify the material, only saying alloy. Steel is an alloy.

Full suspension is not worth it unless you spend quite a lot more. I've got front and rear lockout on mine, and it's fairly light as well, but at this price it will be clunky and absorb your effort.

I am 6foot 1, or about 185cm. My bike is 22inch (rather large). The size you want depends on your riding style and the style of the bike. For a full downhill I might only get an 18inch frame for example.
Smaller frames are lighter and more manouverable, but less comfortable over longer distances.

Really, any evidence of that or did you just make it up? This will be a steel framed monstrosity, which will break at the first sniff of dirt, you'd be better off buying a decent second hand hardtail.

That assumes that you are talking real cost rather than the artificial world of discounted products. What, exactly, is the compromise between these two?
#23
Bike looks ok for a very cheap entry level mtb - I would def go for the hardtail though. More to go wrong with full suss and for 90% of users it just adds unnecessary weight and inefficiency. If you wanted to do the kind of serious off road that requires full suss then you would want a better bike than this anyway.

totally agree. I love the way they say frame is made of alloy as though thats special. I bet it will be steel and the bike will weigh a ton.

Ordered HT for GF Xmas present, they sent FS instead, arrived last week.

I was sus about this bike as I am a keen biker, however, I must say, for £115 (inc. P&P) I am very impressed with the bike.

To clear a couple of things:

Frame is Al 6061 heat treated
Bike has basic Shimano set
Bike is quite light
Forks are Suntour M3010 75mm

Overall, don't buy this bike if you race, however as a run about / light off road / first MTB it's an absolute bargain !
#26
Full Suspension: Heavier, more moving parts to go wrong.

Hardtail: Simpler to maintain, lighter, put more of your energy into going forwards (instead of up and down)

I spent £500+ on my bike and even at that price range I didn't wanna touch a full suss bike..

I'm now confused about this, they quote:
[LEFT]Frame Material:Alloy[/LEFT]
T6061 isn't and alloy, it's solid tempered aluminium.
[LEFT]Gearset:Suntour alloy 42/34/24
Brakeset:Tektro alloy V-brakes[/LEFT]
Neither of these are Shimano, are you sure this is the same bike?
[LEFT]Forkset:Suntour M3000 75mm[/LEFT]
Even the forks are different, they've either sent you a different bike or methinks there's some dodgy info going round here somewhere.

6061 = Aluminium alloy: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/6061_aluminum

Yes, apologies here are the finer details: Shimano brake / gear levers, front and rear mechs and cassette, the crank is suntour and the brake cantilevers are tektro. As for the chain, BB, HS and cables I have no idea and to be honest not really worried at this price.

Yep, forks are M3010, as they are on the pic, I think they have generalised.

Personally I think it's a bargain for an entry level aluminium framed bike :-D
#30
stay well clear of the full suspension bike, my husband had this bike and gave it away, poor quality!

http://www.comparestoreprices.co.uk/mountain-bikes/diamond-back-diamondback-outlook-fs-2006-bike.asp

Go with the hardtail version!
#31
Dont touch the full suspension version with a bargepole, my hubby had this bike and gave it away, its very poor quality.

http://www.comparestoreprices.co.uk/mountain-bikes/diamond-back-diamondback-outlook-fs-2006-bike-reviews.asp

Stick with the hardtail version.
#32
The Hard Tail is now out of stock. The full suspension is available but only in 18 inch. According to the Raleigh website they state that for anyone around 6 foot tall, you are better off with a 20'or 22' frame. Hope this helps.
#33
what about for someone who cycles 20 miles aday, to and from work .... would this bike be light enough? I know the tyres would need to be changed but frame wise i mean.?
#34
Funnily enough I cycle the same distance as you, and I'd say that you should be using a different sort of bike - one with drop-handlebars for less wind resistance. Not to mention mudguards and a rack for your bag. But it's hard to find those, because they are not fashionable.

On the contrary the reason it's hard to find a good old steel framed racer is because they sell like hotcakes. A stiff aluminium framed racer can be bought cheaply from a well known auction site.

A bunch of kids from my work got these DB bikes to do a 60 mile charity ride and did fine on them.

Oooh, someone's got all stroppy, did you wake up late for school again? Pot, Kettle and Black methinks, as I've already stated, the specs conflict.
Frame Material: Alloy
And then all of a sudden T6061, which is it? Aluminium or an alloy? I'm doubting that it's a 6061 frame for £110. Try reading my other post that no one has responded to.
#38
I love it! Arguing over a £115 hardtail.

This is an absolute bargain for anyone wanting to start off biking, much better specc'd than the standard Halfords Apollo rubbish.

Dude, I replied to your comment, if you have the gumf to ask a question at least read the reply:

6061 = Aluminium alloy: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/6061_aluminum

Where you got the 'T' from I don't know, why you are spending time flittin about for a bike that you are perhaps not interested in I don't know, maybe ease off on the sark tho until you decide :whistling:
