its just a sterotype most of the time

usually ppl on these boards have nice bikes like FBM, S&M, t1, etc etc so when someone has a diamondback its like "omg shitty bike that costs 100$ oh no!"

diamondbacks are good i guess

well for a start you have the whole Taiwan made with Taiwan materials thing, and also its not rider owned, meaning that the money your are giving diamondback is not going 100% back in to BMX, unlike rider owned companies like the ones mentioned above. also you cant guarantee that diamondback are going to be in BMX through the good and bad, if they think that they may be losing money, or if BMX is not profitable enough they will just pull out. they don't do it for the love.
