    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.


    Im 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...
