Just scored this sweet ride at a yard sale, and am loving it. It has no decals or model ID, but is stamped 'Diamondback' at the rear tip of the rear dropouts. As far as I can tell, it's a Diamonback Axis, around '96. Super light, I think it's aluminum, labeled 'Made in Taiwan."
    Came with Shimano clipless pedals, which I changed out. Any help with ID would be appreciated.
    I think that's a 1995 Diamondback Vertex - nice bike!

    Yup, both mediums. Both a hoot to ride too! I just wrapped up some DH shuttling yesterday on the Scapegoat and it was a blast. It has such a playful personality. I've done a couple trail rides on it since completion and it pedals surprisingly well too!

    Curious to know but has anymore removed the "Diamondback" logo on the frame. I have the a gloss overall paint job but the logo itself feels matte on my 2012 Overdrive and I'm going for the all blackout look.

    If so...how did anyone do it???

    volume spacers

    installed Fox medium volume spacers on my 2010 Mission

    got to love the small bump sensitivity, removed 10psi from previous 130 psi. feels like bottomless on drops perfect combination plush Lyrik air.

    Way better than the stock fork (Suntour XCR V3) that it replaced. I rarely bottom out and my wrists get relief from harsh feedback from the suspension when riding down the rocky terrain of Ringwood State Park. Best $255.00 I spent on my bike!

    This was my first ride with it so theres not much detail I can give. It got pretty wet and muddy on the trails. My initial feedback compared to my Specialized, its a tad slower considering its heavier(~28lbs vs 31lbs) and my tires setup but very capable. On the downhill it wakes up and its very confident and the suspension feels more plush. As for the climb, I was expecting worst considering the longer travel @170mm and 66.5HA, but the climb is very manageable. Overall im happy with the result. This will be my light dh bike.

    I've been sitting on the new DB Mission 4x since August. I kind of forgot about it the last few months. It's a great bike, pedals great, jumps awesome, manuals well. I've got a Kashima Float fork to install from my TRc, some XTR cranks, new rims, brakes, chainguide, seatpost, and cassette to mount up if I ever find motivation.






    Here's a quick little video just toying around on a line we just built at the skills park. Certainly not what the bike was designed for but it was fun.

    Picked up a 2011 Mission Pro for the parts spec recently. Blew my knee apart in whistler so I parted my Evil Undead and bought this for rehab. It wont stay around long (the frame at least) as im ordering a Evil Uprising to replace the DH bike.





    Im close to being able to ride so im interested in seeing how the Mission rides.

    34 lbs???? Christ, if my bikes weigh more than 24lbs I'm looking at what needs changing. Don't think I'll buy modern at those weights. My 1st DB Topanga, in 92 was less than that, and it was low spec, basic heavy components. I swapped them and got it to 28lbs.

    I'm pretty sure there isn't any difference in geometery between them. Different tubing and spec. It would have been cheaper for them to design once, and roll them out. It makes more sense as a business model. I wouldn't have a clue about the modern bikes, as they were / are heavy, and not worth buying. The old ones however, are vastly underrated. I've had 2 Ascents, a 94 and 5, and they were identical shape to my 94 Axis and 93 Axis Pro and even my 96 Axis R. Tubing however is different on all of them. I even think my WCF is the same, but it's snowing here at the moment, and I'm not going to the garage to check.

    Is that Axis Pro yours? Its lovely. I have one as pictured above

    Yes, I've got the Overdrive Sport (2012). Changing to 9 speed is not that hard if you have the right tool (cassette remover). You have to change your rear derailleur to 9-speed as well as the stock (Acera) is 8-speed only.

    Awesome! Thanks for the quick response. Also how well do you like this bike? Does it have remote lockout? Does it perform well on trails, rocks, roots, jumps? Is it durable? Reason I ask is I just ordered the 2013 model.... I will post pics once it arrives this week. Thanks

    You're welcome. I like this bike as it is a solid, albeit considered beginner's bike; I was able to ride it on pretty technical trails (singletrack, rocky terrain (Ringwood State Park in NJ), and log jumps) on the stock fork (SR Suntour XCR V3). Yes, the stock fork has remote lockout but there's no dampener, so it is quite harsh on rocky and/or rooty terrain. Lockout works but the preload adjust is a guess work at best. That was the first thing I have upgraded. I now have an air shock (X-Fusion Slide in white) that I got for $255 (>$400 MSRP) online. If there is one thing that you need to upgrade first, I suggest you start with the fork. You'll do just fine with the rest of the stock parts, and probably just replace them as they wear out or if you find deals online (Jenson USA, PricePoint, BlueSkyCycling, eBay, Amazon, etc.).

    Yeah that's a sorrento sport and as said earlier with the right tools . Also check the hub for the rearwheel

    You don't need to change the rear mech, an 8 speed will work with 9 speed cassette and shifters, but you should change it because Acera isn't very good. You will need 9 speed shifters though

    Yup, thanks for the correction Pyro ...rd's are like "black boxes"; all depend on the shifter.
