The Release 1 is proof positive that getting a great bike doesn’t always require that you fork over a great big pile of cash. Diamondback has taken their much-lauded Level Link suspension design and constructed a light yet tough aluminum frame that isolates chain forces from trail inputs. Or to employ less tech-geek speak, the suspension doesn’t bob when you stomp on the pedals, yet becomes extremely plush the moment your wheels start smacking roots and rocks.

Diamondback's entry-level Release 1 is actually anything but “entry.” They’ve equipped it with an SR Suntour Aion suspension fork and X-Fusion 02 Pro R rear shock, Diamondback's Blanchard tubeless-ready wheelset, and a Shimano Deore drivetrain. Shimano hydraulic disc brakes help bring you to a stop, though stopping is probably going to be the last thing you want to do when you bring this bike up to speed.

Ready Ride bikes are shipped 95 percent assembled. Typical bike assembly is time-consuming and requires technical know-how. Ready Ride reduces the time and skills needed for the final, four-step assembly.
