 Why do all these contests use Freakbook to enter?? It only makes me not want one even more...
  • 29 5
 Is like the Trek contest from months back that nobody won. . . . . Oh and don't forget all the great Trek email spam you get now for entering that contest.

  • 12 5
 Wait, so no one won that Trek contest? You mean it was all just a ploy to get emails?! I, for one, am shocked! Wink If life has taught me anything, is that nothing comes for free lol
  • 4 3
 No one one? How?
  • 6 3
 I find that hard to believe. There's no way they could get away with that so easily.

Or could they?
  • 11 3
 don't know about you guys but I got a email saying somebody had won the bike, and there was also an article on here to about it I think.
  • 2 3
 I'm sure someone did, I mean, if they didn't - well, people would be mad!

I was just teasing a bit, BUT I still stand by my stance of "nothing comes for free!" Wink
  • 3 5
 That article was for the ticket SS, I too have a bunch of trek emails from that.
  • 9 2
 Hey Saxman, at least you have the opportunity to enter! Enrty is only open to residents of the US and Canada... Frown
  • 14 3
 What about Devinci "mystery bike" contest?
  • 3 3
 Whatever, I'm going to try. If I did win this beauty though, I will tits it out!
  • 3 3
 I never used to believe in these contests, till one day i entered one and i won a contour+. Now I enter every contest I see, if it happened once, it could happen twice!
  • 3 3
 Aaaand then I notice that its only for US or canada residents. Damn

 Who won the Bell contest? The one with Sik Mik and Crankworx.
  • 2 3
 It was Benjamin aka Lincolnturns.
..and technically me as well, since they painted up my helmet later Razz

  • 2 3
 Yeah I actually won one of these contests some years back, got a free chain guide. So I always enter, don't mind mtb related junk mail ! haha
  • 3 5
 So the Trek contest was nothing more than a sham? Just everything about the Trek brand is unappealing to me. From its star rider that cheated to the brand itself. Some may snub their noses at Diamondback but I'll take a Diamondback over a Trek any day.
  • 2 5
 Some random person said it was a scam because they don't know who won... that's all we really know.
  • 2 3
 Its still ridiculous you have to enter through Facebook. By now Pinkbike should have away of getting the mfg's to allow them to use an in house tool of some kind.
  • 3 3
 Lets see- take the chance to win a 2015 DB Mission price being a lot of email from a company I love anyways? Cool. I'm in!

 -douse bags in full effect! LOL

 I'm so upset with those f*cking facebook contests !!! Why do we must have facebook to enter ?!!!
  • 9 5
 Because they want your information. Its more valuable to them than a bike frame. Theyre a buisness not a charity
  • 3 5
 What the hell would they do with our facebook info which they can only see very limited amounts of?

Liking them on facebook will give them more publicity. People will see that you liked the page; and perhaps liking it themselves and acting as basically free advertising, and their page likes will increase; indicating to people their popularity. That's all there is, nothing nefarious.
  • 2 1
 ... and you have to be resident of the usa or canada.
  • 2 0
 Ah ok I didn't notice it... My bad
  • 15 5
 I don't do facebook...
  • 3 1
 For that alone you have my respect.
  • 9 4
 Awww Diamondback you just start getting my respect back by building some decent looking bikes and then your giving one away in a facebook only contest? My respect level is dropping faster than Miley Cyrus' pants in a record exec's office!
  • 10 5
 It let me enter but then in the rules it says that only US/Canadian residents over 13 are eligible. WHYYYYYYYYY????
  • 4 3
 this is so so true. Can they at least put this detail somewhere other than the terms and conditions which no one even reads
  • 10 7
 wahoo to the fact that there's so many 650b whiners on this site. my odds of winning have drastically gone up because they definitely won't enter this contest, right? yinzer 26-fo-life, eh? duck sauce.
  • 39 3
 I would take a free bike even if it had square wheels.
  • 3 3
 as long as they are carbon square wheels.lol
  • 7 3
 F**K Facebook very much!!
But I have to say that, that frame is probably the nicest thing that Diamondback has offered in a long time.
  • 4 3
 Everyone is upset about this being a Facebook only way of entering the contest. Many of us don't use Facebook and have no interest in ever joining Facebook as we find it very intrusive, lame and pointless. Facebook offers people a platform to do nothing more than to brag, showoff, annoy you by sending stupid requests to join something and compete amongst each other for having the most "friends" which the vast majority of these "friends" have never been met in person.
  • 4 3
 Couldn't agree more. It all literally became a great big load of 'look at me!'
  • 11 7
 Hey Diamondback? Thumbs down on the facebook thing.
  • 8 5
  • 4 3
 Don't enter, boycott Facebook. Simple. It's become a hyper edited joke. Not to mention the loss of rights to anything you post and the obvious snooping from you know who.
  • 1 2
 Wow. Why so much hate for Facebook? Its a great way to communicate and share videos and photos etc. For all you "oh the goverment is watching me type's" we live in the big brother world so this cannnot be escaped. Put less info up there if you are worried :S

 "Fear is a mind killer"
They get my info for using Frank Herbert "Dune" quoted song in their trailer. That and having a badass bike up for grabs certainly spurs my attention (albeit briefly)

 fu.k Face book.
I like the bikeSmile

 Knucklebox has been refined to be a less complex looking single pivot. I kind of liked the old design.
  • 2 2
 There are four pivots. So it's basically a four bar. But I guess if you squint a bit.

 'Oh you can count, good for you' -Shooter McGavin Wink
All the seat stay does is push the swing link. It is functionally a single pivot. It will have the same brake/pedal feedback of a single pivot.
  • 1 1
 Someone help me out here, an orange patriot is a single pivot due to having.. a single pivot. This is not a single pivot in any way at all. Rule of thumb, you can't call something single pivot when there are more than one pivots. Call me old fashioned. Lovin the way you managed to get a happy Gilmore quote in there, top points for that Smile superb film.

 This IS a single pivot and there ISN'T a damn thing wrong with that. Plenty of SP designs can outperform modified axle path layouts. DON'T BELIEVE THE HYPE!!!
  • 2 0
 Oh dear. I'm not believing any hype. Just my eyes.. one near the bb, two on the seatstay, one at the frame. Four pivots. No advanced axle path. I think you've got the wrong idea about what a single pivot bike is. As I say, have a look at orange patriots. Great bikes, no dispute. But one pivot. Couldn't be much more different to this really.
  • 2 0

Single pivot means there is one pivot between the BB and rear axle. No matter the rocker/swing-link configuration, the axle path creates an arc around a fixed point. All that other jazz around it just tunes the leverage ratio throughout the stroke.
  • 1 0
 Okay mate. You're confusing axle path with the name for a type of suspension system. Yes the axle path is defined. No, it is not a single pivot. You're trying to tell me something like the old fsr four bar linkage found on the original intense and every bighit ever since is a single pivot. Not true unfortunately, hence it being called a four bar linkage.
  • 2 1
 Anyway, let's just agree on the fact the bike looks lovely and will no doubt perform nicely too. Whatever it's called! Smile

 *Although: Specialized/FSR has the brake mounted on the seat stay and the pivot on the chain stay, which reduces brake input (vs seat stay pivot on this frame). I'd ride the DB.

 Wiki "linkage driven single pivot".

FSR places a pivot between the BB and rear axle, so it is not linkage driven single pivot.

Four-Bar can refer to both a single pivot (linkage driven mind you) or a (FSR) modified axle path setup.

I am not confusing axle path with suspension types... It is the ignorance of those who fail to connect the two that leads to the lack of distinguishing the 2 main types of suspension: Single pivot and Modified Axle Path. Every design falls into one of the two. catagories. Every full-suss bike. I've brought you to the water, but I can't make you drink. I hope you "get" it.

 ....I do think this bike looks lovely and would be happy to ride the crap out of it someday. Total agreeance there.

 Complaining on the contest because you need to be on facebook is the same as complaining on a contrest because you need to have access to internet or know about pinkbike. I am wondering when people will complain that Rampage is in Utah, not in their hometown...
  • 1 1
 I don't want it unless it's a Transition. You can keep ur "blood diamond back"
  • 2 3
 speaking of knucklebox....can anyone chime in on whether or not the canyon strive linkage is a rip off of diamondback?
  • 4 4

 Sweet. This is just the kind of bike I want. Hope I win

 Try and ride in the wet 24/7 just playing devils advocate...

 When it's truly wet it doesn't matter, my bikes are usually covered from rooter to tooter in mud. Let's just ride hardtails then, eh? No? Exactly.
