2014 Diamant Mammut F24 bike test ride – very heavy kids bike

 

unknown[1]
The bike does not come with these grips or this saddle.
Although this bike was too small for me, my points are still valid, I have ridden other 24inch bikes, it’s not the size that makes this bike handle so horrible.This bike is anything but playful, the bike is so heavy its almost glued to the ground, It was impossible for me to do a wheelie or do even a short manual, even jumping was hard, because the weight kept the bike down.

 

 

The brakes lack power, due to only one piston.

but bunny hops are of course more difficult on a smaller bike, but it still felt way too heavy.

Riding up stair steps, in the skatepark, worked without any issues.

The drivetrain is a joke, it’s outdated and

Horrible steering:

when I turned to left it wanted to stay left and this was with the tyres pumped hard.

the fork has a big offset, and the head tube is slack, It’s overkill.

The bike is way too heavy, I am strong, and I could not get the front wheel to stay up, it was just slamming down hard, bunny hopping was quite hard, due to the weight.

 

Many of the Diamant bikes are rebranded bikes from other bike brands, Rockmachine is one of them, But I do not know if this one is rebranded or not.

Verdict

I can’t recommend such heavy bike, even for an adult it’s way too heavy.
