    How do you like that bike? What kind of riding do you do? How heavy is it? They have a few 07's left at the lbs for pretty cheap and was considering one.

    i just got a response sport like that one, but in all black. ill post some pictures when i can do better than just a camera phone

    regarding the weight, its far from light, but everything ive heard about the frame is that its pretty bombproof, and so far it feels solid. so you pay for the strength with a heavy bike. if you are trying to go with a light weight bike look elsewhere. but if you want a good solid frame to build a hell of a hardtail with then i recommend it

    I've regained my '91 DB, almost exactly the same as yours...down to the seized Scott fork! I intend to rebirth mine as a SS in the not too distant future...

    My DBR X2 baby

    Hi to all Diamondback users. I'm from the Philippines & I would like to share to you my DBR X2 bike. I have upgraded the rear shocks to a Fox float R. The performance improved a lot when I ride it compared to the original coil shocks. Plus the travel even increased from 4.5 to 5 inches. The pictures I have our quite big but I'll try to upload some pics to share.

    Fantastic bike, its on the heavy side but very tough & handles quite well.

    Thank you! I build it with parts from Ebay and it took me about 3 hoursplaying with links to get the chain done correctly. It weights 19 pounds as it stands, and very quick on tarmac!

    I had an Axis TT back in the 90s ( it was stolen ) ... Great bike.

    To this day still one of the best all around handling bikes I've ever ridden.
    If you go looking for trouble, you can be sure it's gaining from behind.

    Nice bike. Love the triple clamp forks. Have you gone down hill with that set up? By the way, just want to share my bike pix with you guys who are also DB users.

    Tough as nails and ready for night operations.

    This bike has taken me to some amazing places: Moab, Wasatch Crest, Snow Bird.

    Last year I put over 100 miles per week on the DiamondBack, and she kept dish'n up the great rides!

    She's a 2000 DiamondBack XR-1, with Shimano XT throughout, Marzocchi Marathon XC forks, Crank-Bros Candy SL pedals, 32 Watt Dual-Beam Halogen Nite-Rider Classic Plus head light and Ritchey OCR rims. She loves the night-life!

    She also has a sister; a 2007 Titanium Titus Moto-Lite.

    I keep them separated in my garage, but they both have my affection!

    Hey Man,

    Your XR4 looks great. By the way what is the travel of your Marzocchi forks? You may want to try my latest experiment with the rear shocks. I inverted the suspension linkage, giving around another .25 of travel at the rear & made the suspension plush which is great for all mountain riding. All in all the rear travel of my DBR X2 is around 4.5 inches. What I mean by inverted is that I transfered the left link to the other side & vice versa. The problem now is that I have to look for longer travel forks to suit length of travel that I added at the rear. -R-chi-

    Rchi boy,

    The DiamondBack XR-1 has Marzocchi Marathon XC forks and as I remember go from 80mm to 100mm. I always ride at 100mm just because it feels so right.

    The Marz. forks are just amazing and have been trouble free since the day I bought them. They've taken tons of abuse in Moab and high speed impacts at Utah's Park City Jupiter Bowl , and they never have disappointed. IMO the Marz forks are the Ferrari's of the MTB Fork world. I know that's debatable, but I'm hooked on 'em.

    Your linkage swap-out trick sounds interesting. I'll check it out. Thanks for the tip.

    Keep ride'n!

    By the way, when you do the swapping you have to check the air on your rear shock. Since it will become plush it might bottom out. I added more pressure around 20 psi more. But you may want to try your own air pressure setting. I'm riding it downhill next week, I'll try to give you guys some feedback on the feel of the bike. Yup I agree on you, I'm using a Marz flylight air. But planning to upgrade to longer travel fork like may be a Fox Vanilla R to match my float R at the back.
    Thanks for the info, let me know if you have some adjustments done & how they will improve performance.
