Features

  • Reliable, hand-built aluminum hardtail frame w/ progressive, low-slung geometry for trail riding performance
  • SR Sun tour XCM 120mm travel suspension fork tackles trail obstacles
  • SRAM single ring 1x8 drivetrain gives you simplicity and smooth shifting
  • Durable DB SL-7 Double wall 27.5" wheels
  • Powerful Tetra Aries mechanical disc brakes

Description

If you could only have one bike — just one — the Hook would be the perfect choice. For starters, it’s capable of, well, just about anything you have the nerve for. That includes quick rips on your local trails, all-day suffer fests that have you pedaling away into terra incognita, and everything in between. We’ve equipped the Hook with the same low-slung, modern frame as its well-heeled Line and Sync'd siblings. Long in the front, short in the back, low and maneuverable — the Hook is deft and precise on tight trails yet rock steady when you are going Mach Chicken down the steepest descents. The most impressive thing about the Hook, however, might just be its price. We kept the price tag from burning a hole in your checking account by equipping the Hook with awesome yet affordable components, including a plush 120mm fork, simple and effective single-ring drivetrain, powerful disc brakes, and quick-rolling 27.5” wheels.

abunda_amazon_reviews Really enjoy this bike, it's a first timer for me and so far its been great! Done a lot of research into what would be best for me for the right price and felt this was the best deal and value of all others. Diamondback customer service makes this worth the purchase too. Called a few times to ask about compatible products for future upgrades and always get very responsive reps to speak with. Highly recommend this product to friends and family. Will definitely purchase DB again!;;Reviewed in the United States on May 6, 2018;;5.0 out of 5 stars;;Really enjoy this bike;;Joe Shell;;/gp/customer-reviews/R3PF6JR2O526XV/ref=cm_cr_dp_d_rvw_ttl?ie=UTF8&ASIN=B07R5W2RWN;;;Was super excited to start riding again and found this to be great value for a entry level hard tail. It was easy enough to assemble and looks great. But I haven’t been able to ride it for more than 20 minutes. The tires do not seem to have sealant or taped correctly. They do not hold air at all for more than 20 minute ride. Both morning since I got it the tires have been flat. Worst purchase in a while. Now I have to spend 30-40 bucks per tire to get a shop to fix it. Because diamondback hasn’t responded to my trouble ticket in 2 full days. I’d go to a different site and brand. ***UPDATE: I would just like to say that after not having a ride for 6 years because of health reason i finally repurchased a bike. I chose the Diamondback Hook 27.5 based on countless positive reviews. I wanted a re-entry into riding bike with little maintenance and good build. I bought it on Amazon. It shipped here perfect and assembled quickly. Ive ridden it twice for 30 minutes each and it will not hold air at all. Its flat every morning on both tires. I submitted a ticket on the support site and have had the absolute worst customer service experience in my adult life. Lack of care, help, possible fixes, or empathy was what I received. "Lauren" did nothing to help and tried to deflect the problems. She first told me i should just go get new tubes. So let me get this straight, i buy $700 bike brand new, i now have to purchase new tubes for the tires???? Then when i challenged that she said you should just talk to amazon, they have a different warehouse then us...
