        Comments about Diamondback Mini Della Cruz Girl's Cruiser - 16" Wheels:

        Well I read about the front wheel not fitting the forks and thought, eh I can get it to work.....It came and the forks are 3/4 of an inch too narrow at the dropouts. I (we, me being 6'1" 200lbs and a friend being 6'8" 250 were able to barely get the wheel on the bike. Not without scratching the forks up and not without cursing like a sailor. Both of us are mechanically inclined, and felt that this was definitely a huge issue and should be returned. Once we managed to get the wheel on I was in a different frame of mind and the bike looks so nice. My daughter loves it and it is staying. If I need to change an innertube or something I will need to use a grinder to make the cup nuts a little narrower as well as a flapsander on the inside of the forks to shave off a few mm. I would not recommend getting this bike UNLESS you are able to make alterations for it to go together properly.

            I read a few reviews stating that the front wheel does not fit. Being an avid bicycle enthusiast as well as pretty handy with tools I figured I could make it work if worse comes to worse. Well it is worse than that. There is no way a wheel will fit on these forks. no amount of prying or shifting will get it done. NONE. Do not buy this item.

              Bought this bike for our granddaughter, who outgrew a tricycle at age 3-1/2! Started with a 12" Lil Della Cruz, and Sports Authority graciously exchanged it for a 16" Mini Della Cruz, a better fit for our taller than average girl! This is a well-built and super durable bike which will last well until our granddaughter outgrows it!

              Poor Quality Control

                    I cant rate the bike yet as we haven't got the chance to even assemble it, but my rating is based on Diamonbacks quality control of these bikes. I saw another review post on the fact that the fork had to be pried slightly to get it to fit the from wheel. Well ours was a full 1/2 inch out and wasn't even close to fitting the front hub on the wheel. This was a shame especially seeing as it was the last component to be assembled on the bike. One of the reasons I went with Diamonback was because they are a big bike company versus some unknown brand and really didn't expect this type of guffaw.
