Contact your nearest REI bike shop to schedule this important service.

Diamondback Insight 24" Bike Review:


So far, so good

Bought this bike for my 10 year old son. The size is just right for him (he's 50% height). Because we ride exclusively on paved surfaces,I liked the smooth tires and lack of suspension system (just added weight). The price was very good too (plus it was on sale) compared to some other brands (important because he'll outgrow the bike in a couple of years). The main negative is that the front derailleur is difficult to shift, and my son doesn't have the hand strength to shift (hopefully next year he will). I tried it myself and could do it, but I can see why he can't. Also, the quick release on the seat post is nice, but there is no quick release on the front wheel.
