    Here is another pic of it, this time in 69er format (yup, original fork fits a 29er wheel)
    How'd you do the front brake with the 700c wheel?

    I made up some of these adapters just to move the canti studs up.So far they are working fine, no movement when breaking. But I am going to put an arch connecting the 2 and will also act as a brake booster

    My DB Apex (1994-1995) reformed.
    I would make new decals. Someone could take some photos of the decals for me? ("Diamond Back", "Apex", "Snake Stays", "True Temper", etc)?
    Thanks in advance.

    Hey Karlly

    How do those guys handle with the suspension fork? Change in head angle noticable?

    You managed to get those decals made yet?

    Just picked up an 08 Response. No big plans yet, but I am sure they will come. I sold my Trek 3500 and got this. And to all those brand name lovers, this bike outperforms my Trek by far. The only thing I've done so far (not pictured) are change the seat, peadals, and added an A-Arm protector from lizard skin.

    I have the same frame at home but those looked shinier, than mine. Do I was wondering if an extra polish was given or if it's just the way it looks it the photo

    I have ridden mine rigid with a 29er up front and it rides well, so I guess it makes sense that an 80mm will work.

    hmmm, no to decide suspended 26" or rigid 29".

    What coating did you put on it afterwards?

    No worries about the English, it's better than most peoples around here (South Africa)
    There are 11 official languages, of which English is the second or even third language for the majority of people.

    Oh yes, I almost forgot. I've got to vote today.

    If your frame is in a good condition, you dont need use varnish. I use it but my frame has some points of rust so it start underneath the varnish.
    Try some info with car painting.
    By the way, yesterday I ride a matathon race (75Km) with my DBR Axis 94. It was great!!!
    Good vote for you.

    Hey Petriedav!
    Sorry for answer late.
    I did upgrade in my Diamond Back!
    In the last picture that I posted my bike is behind (without some decals).
    There isn't any problem if you install a suspension fork until 80mm (max.). The geometry and the driveability aren't afected.
    About the decals, I have not had time to do this.

    Yes I did. I took the old varnish and some points of rust with sandpaper and apply a new varnish.
    Even if your frame is in good condition, apply a layer of varnish, because this frame (Apex or Axis) has a thin and old layer of chrome that can easily rust.

    Another frames models same as Apex or Axis, like Response Elite, don't have a layer of chrome, So do not get with this appearance/finish.


    I´m from Brazil too, and I know poyares of another forum.

    Yeah, it seems to be holding air and working just fine. The Mags have proven to be among the most durable of the older forks - some of the most functional, as well. The short travel is noticeable, but it is quite tunable with a shock pump and needle.

    For more amusement, I'll find a pic of my other Axis when I got it. It had a Scott Unishock on it...there's a vintage fork that really didn't work...

    My DBR Axis, not sure of age, if anyone can date it it'd be awesome.
    Switching to High roller SS tyres tomorrow to get some speed through the streets.

    Do you notice a big difference with the new fork? I am thinking about upgrading my response, but I have no clue what I am looking for and I am also not looking to spend more than I paid for the whole bike for a new one.

    you will notice a big difference in a nicer fork. More tunability, plusher, and makes you faster. If you want a new fork and want to spend less then 200-ish dollars, look at a Rock Shox Tora. If you got $500 dollars you can get a Fox Van RLC for 460 on pricepoint.

    Yea, bling was definitely the idea. I only ever bling out a bike when I really like and believe in the frame design.

    I haven't weighed it yet. I estimate around 30 lbs., but I try not to find out cause I already have a couple of really light xc bikes. I looked for the best combination of strength and low-weight in each component for this Mission regardless of price (I shopped smart tho). The bike was at least 1 lbs. lighter with a Manitou Minute Elite and lighter tires before.

    However, the White Bros fork was purely a performance decision, knowing it's one of the heavier forks around. I tried EVERY 140mm/20mm fork! And the 2.4" WTB MotoRaptors are the lightest tires this size and with this much grip that I could find.

    Anyone know how I can get a black or silver Knucklebox link (thick ones for the Mission tho, not the thinned out ones for Sorties)?? I would love to flow the bike colors a little better.

    That is cool. I run 2.4 Motoraptors on my Mission as well. They are my favorite tires, owned 4 sets over the years and just superb all around traction. I have used White Bros. fork years ago and found them to be really nice performance wise. That bike rides as good as it looks!!!!

    d.n.s.-

    I spent somewhere from $2000 to $25000 net total. I bought the Mission 3 from a shop that understood I wanted to customize, so they worked with me on getting rid of most stock components/parts (like the heavy stem and seatpost). I got good money back selling the RockShox Pike and original wheelset. Then I scored good deals on the Spinergy Xyclone Enduro's ($400) and the White Brothers Fluid 140 fork ($350!!!!), closeout prices at about half the retail prices. I cannot find an all-mountain 6" bike with this much bling for less than about $3k new. I took my time picking out the parts and making sure I got good deals.

    Here is a shot of our Team Issue Easton Alum MTB's - My wife loves hers so much I had to give up trying to keep her off it! Now we just ride them. A few more in the background - All DBR mtb's. It was cleaning day which means drag all the bikes out of the rack to sweep & wash the floor, then clean the bikes before putting them back in...

    1994 Diamondback Apex 69er

    An update on what my bike looks like now.

    It's currently setup in 1x9 mode but will prob switch to SS again.

    Replaced the stock steel fork with a Carbon fork.
    With this I move from fitting a Specialized Fast-track 2.0 with minimal clearance to being able to fit WTB Exiwolf 2.3 with huge clearance, but only raise the front end by +-7mm

    Have an XTR 960 crankset that I'm doing a Jones Mod on (in stages as I have time)

    Also have an On-one Fleegle bar now.

    Next step is to get a lighter rear wheel.

    A mix of Diamondbacks - some purchased "just because" or to collect as they are a Diamondback, yet most because we are a family of five that ride and (used to) race the dirt, then switched over and starting riding more road - now we just do both but mostly for fun.

    We have sold a few oof, yet over the years we have had over fifty Diamondbacks, now something under thirty. We are looking for clear Fall days to do some shooting and document what we do have right now, well this Fall anyway. Got a couple of new DB's in mind, yet I have to make a place for them before we can get them.

    Will post more as we start shooting...

    My new Recoil 2009 with up grades!!! let me know what you think

    Well Im new to MTBR & to the DB forum.
    & this is my new Recoil 2009 with 2 upgrades for now.
    I got a Fox Talas 32 R, brand new for $380!!!
    & for the rear shock I got a Fox Flot RP2 brand new for $79!!!
    ALL ON EBAY.
    Now im looking to get better brakes, rims & a crankset.

    About the brakes I dont know if to get Avid BB7 disc brake, or one of the
    Avid hydraulic disc brake. from the reviews on MTBR it looks like some pepole hate hydraulics & love the BB7 & some love the hydraulics.

    So let me know what brakes you have on your DB & let me know what you think of my DB

    Here is my bike. A neighbor was moving so I purchased this bike for cheap to get back into mtn biking.

    How can I find out which model this is?




    Hope disc brakes

    I noticed that all previous bikes on this thread have the rear brake mount on top on the rear tri-angle and this frame has it mounted on the inside.

    Just means you are disk brakes - doesn't rule out what you have - many bikes are set up factory with v-brakes yet with the disk brake after market option.
    Now today, so many just come with the disk brakes on them - not so several years back.

    99 DBR X-10 I've been building up again. Right now it has an old extra Judy 100 on it and it still rides great. The cables are little out of control at the moment. Throwing an 09 minute elite 140mm on this weekend, so looking forward to the new fork. Did some semi technical riding today on my maxxis holly rollers and it was hella brodacious.

    Have owned the bike since 99, still love it.

    My 2007 vintage Response, shortly before a load of parts got burglarised by some cowlife lunt. Still most of it survived and it rides great.

    Has one stock part left on it...

    Here are some pictures of my 1993 or 1994 Diamondback Ascent. I tore it all apart last summer, upgraded a bunch of stuff and haven't ridden it much since then.

    Currently it's set up with road tires and the stock rigid fork but I think I'm going to put off road tires and my old Manitou fork back on it and get off road again next spring.

    My DB

    Hi everyone Im new here, and am just getting into MTBs after not riding since I was a kid. Doing it mainly to lose some weight. I picked this up a few weeks ago and love it so far. I needed something with a beefy frame(currently 360 lbs down from 415). Maybe someday Ill get to the point of a full suspension and do some XC but for now just trying to lose some LBs. Only thing Ive changed is the seat so far. Heres a pic with my goofy sidekick.

    The new Response XE

    Cool bike dude. That bike is a killer value for what you pay for it $300. At your weight and just in general ditch the plastic pedals for some stronger alloy ones. I would consider getting a beefier stem & bar if you plan to ride off road at your size, the steel bars could bend! Enjoy and the bike and welcome to mtbr.

    Thanks for the reply. Yeah, I think I got a good deal on it. Ive already been eyeing new parts for it. The wife has put a ban on me buying anything else for it this close to Christmas. So, Im making her a list of stuff I want for it. I found some pedals, lights, water bottle and some other stuff as well. I found some DB pedals at Dicks that I like, would those be beefy enough or is there a popular website everyone uses or should I just check the LBS? Thanks for the Warm Welcome DJ

    Dirty Harry

    Nice Sidekick!

    Here's my baby. And so far the only Black oxide, Gun blued, chromoly frame I know of.

    It's a 94-95 Ascent I've been riding since 95. and has experienced rebirth. The name "Dirty Harry" just seems appropriate with the gun bluing. And it will be dirty soon enough.

    I took it out for the first ride today. Black Star to hidden ranch. What a view!.

    Man, she feels good! Go ahead, Make my ride!

    Another $70 off

    WOOHOO, Right after I bought the bike I got an email from Dicks for saying $20 off any $100 purchase. So I took the email in there and they gave me $20 bucks. Then yesterday my wife sees my bike in the Black Friday sale ad for another $50 cheaper so I take the ad in and they give me another $50 back. So now with the money back I paid right around 215 for the bike. While we were there I showed the wife some accessories I want for it. I can already see this is going to be another expensive hobby. But atleast I can use the "But honey its good for my health" excuse. Cant wait to put some real miles on it. DJ

    Expensive? Nothing compared to some things.

    Sportfishing, Hunting, I do them both. That is expensive! I took up the BergFarhrrad because I can do it for very damn little!

    how it looked as a rider for my GF:



    and how it looks now... almost back to standard... sort of...




    and today i decide to take bake my 1st mtb from my sister garage (it had been passed around a bit over the years, and figured it needed some TLC)

    Idea! Coil EX help



    Ok, so, I'm new to the forums, but am running out quickly of places to look for an answer. If anyone at all can help me, the piece that connects the rear tire fork/mount whatever you might call it, with the main frame contains a bolt (right on top of the crank) and mine is loosening every time I ride. I tighten it consistently, but now it's stripping and I need a more permanant solution. If anyone has one, I would be forever grateful. Also, is there any particular parts stores that you guys use? I'm looking for a new rear suspension (7.5" eye to eye) and a new derailer setup.

    So your main pivot bolt is loose, is there a lot of play in the rear end when you tighten the main bolt down? Have you put lock tite on the threads? The pivot might be worn out and need new a new set of bearings/washers. And what about the bolt, you say it is stripped? That would not normally be a warranteable item. You need to find a DB/Raleigh dealer to get the parts. As for rear derailleurs, I'd just throw on an Alivio level derailleur, work fine and no need to spend more than that unless your going to upgrade the whole drivetrain to 9 spd.

    Not that it makes a difference, but I want to clarify that the picture I used isn't of my rig, just a picture I could find of the piece I was talking about. So yeah, the main pivot bolt is loose. There isn't a lot of play when I tighten it, but it will loosen after about an hour of fairly hard riding. I didn't try lock tite, which I probably should have done sooner. Only one side of the bolt is stripped (it will let me stick an allen key in there and let me tighten from the other side) so I might just put some lock tite on there and reverse the bolt so I can tighten from the good side, hopefully that holds it good enough. As for the rear derailleur, I'm looking for something nice and rugged, that can take a few shots from some logs or rocks and not bend on me.

    Also, I'm seeing some killer setups on here and would love to do some upgrading to my rig. I have an 09 Coil EX with Ritchey Rizer handlebars and Ritchey Lock In grips. I also have a rear suspension for it (not on the bike right now) but it's an inch longer eye to eye and when I put it on, I feel i'm sitting too high even with the seat all the way down. Anyway, like I said, I love some of the setups on here, but I'm not too savvy when it comes to actually getting parts. Can someone tell me what forks, rear suspension, derailleurs, tires, rims, and breaks to use? Like this setup is great /\

    Heres my 2000 X6 frame Im almost finished building up.


    Its complete except for a mount for the suspension lockout remotes and the proper mounting hardware for the rear shock. It has rockshox suspension, a revelation 409 and an mc3r. The derailleurs are xt in the front and xtr in the back, with a stylo 2.2 crankset and xt shifters. The brakes are shimano oe hydraulic calipers on magura discs. The wheels are cheap ebay oe takeoffs with wtb velociraptors. The thompson seatpost is the only part that originally came with this frame. The handlebars and stem are chinese carbon fiber from ebay.

    This bike is replacing a mongoose zero g3 that I still enjoy, but Ive realized the frame is too small for me. This frame feels like it fits me better, but Ive never found a size on it. Does anyone know if theres a way I can find out using the serial number? Or maybe just a measurement that will let me know? I realize it doesnt matter at this point, Im just curious.
