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!

    Dude sweet!!1 Are those both mediums?

    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???

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

    kwxvii, How do you like your X-Fusion Slide RL2??? I am waiting on one to arrive for my singlespeed. Have not seen much in the way of reviews but for the money I could not pass it up.

    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! :thumbsup:

    So, some ride report on your Scapegoat? How was it?:thumbsup:
  • 12-24-2012

    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.
