[Sport Chek] Diadora Orbita Mountain Bike $207

I know I'm gonna get flamed for this because it's not a Giant or Trek but here's a deal for someone who will ride a bike once or twice a week casually.

$229.98 - 10% Email promo code = $207 + tax and free shipping.

The women's model is on sale as well. Search site for Diadora Orbita.

I had a hybrid diadora I picked up from sport chek for just under $200. Used it 10km daily all summer long for 3 years before I decided to upgrade. Sure they are cheap, but I never had an issue with it and I put somewhere between 3-4K km on it.

I picked up the 2019 model when it was on sale a couple month ago, it's a decent bike. Had it tuned up by a pro and no complaints. I paid $208 tax in at the time of promo.

Pretty amateur when it comes to biking; there's differences between men's and women's bikes?

Can anyone comment on fit? I am around 6"1, will this work for me?

I am a total newb, just looking for something inexpensive to cruise around on a bit.

Your probably a size Large. There is a size chart. The large stock comes and goes I find. That's what I was looking for.

There are different sized frames. You want a L (19" along the seat post extension).

Thanks, looks like Large is OOS right now but I will keep an eye on it.

Yes, women's bike have a downward slanted cross bar, makes it easier to step over/through the bike. Functionally they are identical, just different cross bars

Not getting much into details about this bike (before people calls me bike snob or whatever) - if you decide to buy this kind of bike, make sure you change your pedals. Nylon pedals are really terrible and a pair of metal ones is like 15 bucks - totally DIY-able, no tune required.
On a personal preference - If you can spare some extra cash, I'd absolutely avoid any bicycle with RevoShifts.

the nakamura vs the diadora?
Nakamura is considerable inferior than OP's. Steel frame, 26", some mixed brands on drivetrain ...

So...I'm still puzzled. If the women's style has the advantage of easier mounting or whatever, and they are literally identical in terms of structural integrity and functionality, then why not just make them all in the women's style? Is it some kind of masculinity thing?

Pretty much inertia at this point yes. Instead of "women's" frames, manufacturers are now calling them "step through" and they're increasingly popular, especially for e-bikes. While you can technically make that triangular geometry of the "men's" frame stronger with the same weight of materials, you can definitely make the "step through" more than strong enough for any application.
