What father has not been nagged about getting his daughter a bicycle and, even better, a Diamondback Bicycles 2015 Clarity 24 Complete Children’s Performance Hybrid Bike one? This particular young person’s performance hybrid bike is just what the doctor ordered. Especially for little girls. It ticks all the boxes as far a performance and looks go.
If your little girl likes riding a bike every day, then the Diamondback(R) Clarity youth performance-hybrid bike is the perfect companion for her adventures. The alloy frame is very tough, but the bike is comfortable to ride and the tires are narrow-profile, which means they will roll easily and quickly on even surfaces, but will also handle ones that are not so even. The Shimano(R) drivetrain has 14 speeds, and these are organized by twist shifters. The brakes are good, being made from alloy and give controlled stops.

Review 1: The great looking Clarity 24 hybrid bike has amazing 14 gearing speeds and options for accelerating speeds and for climbing. Shimano Revo shifters, F & R derailleurs are great for making shifting seamless and responsive. It wasn’t that difficult to put this hybrid together. My daughter loves it.
Review 2: Putting together this bike was pretty easy. A perfect gift for my daughter soon to be 12. The rust proof alloy frame and linear brakes did not need much maintenance and adjustment was easy. Brakes are reliable and my daughter seems to be pretty comfortable.
Review 3: Delivered promptly and the bike is no different from what is advertised. My daughter loves riding it and pink is her favorite color.

Most of the reviews for this Diamondback(R) Clarity girl’s bike is very positive, with only a few mentioning problems they found with the bike. All said it was packaged well for delivery and was easy enough to put together without hassle. The stopping power may be a little sudden for those who are not experienced with riding a bike, but that is overcome by practice. Being comfortable on a bike is also a priority when learning to ride, and this bike provides that.
