    My first Diamondback bike!


    '09 Mission one

    I've had it less than a week and I am dying to get out and ride it.

    Does any one have experience with the sun ditch witch wheels that came stock on this bike. Can they handle drops 5-6 feet?

    Your wheels should be OK for a while if they are tensioned properly, and you stick to drops with decent transitions, and you're a smooth rider. But, that kind of riding will eventually make any wheel not specifically designed for FR or DH fail. Keep in mind that all it takes is one bad landing to kill even a very strong wheel.

    I think it's fair to say that you should be prepared to spend money on fixing stuff if you do drops and jumps on a regular basis.

    Not that I'm discouraging it or anything.

    Thaks for the reply miniwisejosh!
    Do you tension your own wheels?
    If so, how tight do you keep your spokes

    I know how to tension spokes, and I've done it a couple times. It's pretty easy; just need a spoke wrench and tension meter. I've been letting my shop take care of it for now though. That's just because I haven't invested in the necessary tools yet (a spoke tension meter costs ~$60). I've been too busy getting upgrades.


    Anyways, proper spoke tension depends on the rim. It looks like Sun recommends 110 kg max.

    http://www.sun-ringle.com/support/

    My rims require 100kg, so I try to keep them around there. Too tight will cause the rim to crack. Too loose causes all kinds of trouble. So if you let a shop work on your wheels, make sure they check the tension as well as true them.

    My DB Overdrive

    I love this thing. I haven't met another Diamondback on the trail yet and still I turn heads. Upgrading as I go, before long all I'll have left is just the frame.

    My Overdrive. Nothing stock on here except the frame. I really love this bike, and it has taken the place of my Sortie 3 as my primary ride.

    Easton Ea50 bars, stem and seatpost
    Cane Creek 110 IS headset
    RockShox Tora Solo Air set to 80mm travel
    WTB Silverado Seat
    Lizard Skins Northshore lock-on grips with Cane Creek Ergo Bar Ends
    LX cranks, XT rear derailleur setup as a 1X9 with a BBg bash guard
    Hayes Stroker Trail brakes
    Red Industry 9 classic hubs laced to Stan's Arch rims
    Kenda Slant Six tires (29X2.2)







    And my Sortie 3 that doesn't see as much trail time these days:

    Not sure, If I get a chance to weigh it I will. I actually wrecked my first ride out and taco'd my front wheel. Thing wasn't even a week old, and the crossrides were a steal of a sale at the time so I didn't ever get to 'feel' the weight difference between the two, though I'm sure it isn't too shabby.

    My fork is probably 1.5 lbs lighter than the Suntour XCR that was on it.The new manitou minutes are highly reccomended in my book.

    BTW, would you consider this now an all-mountain bike or trail bike or ?? Thanks.

    I'd say trail bike. In my opinion, an AM bike should be able to handle DH trails. I wouldn't trust a Recon fork and stem extender for aggressive riding.

    I hope road bikes are accepted on this forum--This Podium 5 was the last Diamondback I owned. I'll try and find pics of my DBR V-8 and XR-8. All were great bikes.

    I have been using hard-tails since leaving the BMX world in the 80's. In the mountain bike world I had a TREK, then after a long pause of non-biking I had picked
    up a Cannondale. I decided to go full suspension recently and looking
    at just building me a custom, but prices are pretty high and my budget was on a low.

    Then I spied with my little eye Diamondback's full suspension line up and was not only impressed with their line-up but could not help but feel a little nostalgic
    (in my BMX days I had a Diamondback, and they always had a place in my heart with fond memories) so picked up a killer price on a 2011 RECOIL.

    Yes, bottom of the barrel in their Full suspension line-up,
    but for the price I could not argue and NOTHING I own stays stock for long anywho.



    This is my less than a month old 2011 RECOIL (modified):
    1x9 drive-train with a SRAM X.7 rear derailleur, SRAM 9 speed cassette/chain
    SRAM X.5 shifter,
    Truvativ Hussefelt 32t (soon to be 24/36t) crank
    Truvativ Bashguard & Howitzer BB
    Ritchey Girder mountain wheels
    AVID BB7 Mountain disc-brakes;185mm front, 160mm rear
    AVID brake levers
    Truvativ Hussefelt DH stem and bar
    Rock Shox TORA 302 120mm fork (Theme here huh? not that I like SRAM products or anything. )
    FOX FLOAT RP3 rear shock tuned by PUSH Ind.



    I like it, a lot!

    Here's a pic of my Recoil from a few months ago after assembling it. I had checked out the local shops first, but the under $500 selection was very limited. I was planning on getting a Response Sport off of Amazon, but then came across the Recoil which was $483 shipped. The upgrades are coming along very slowly; so far a used Fox Float RP2 that I haven't installed yet (waiting on new mounting hardware) and what looks like a brand new 09 Rock Shox Tora that I got recently off of fleabay. Went to DSG and got DB Sound pedals to replace the stock plastic ones, and a bottle cage. Need to get a shock pump next, then maybe a new stem. After that, maybe a brake upgrade.

    I am partial to the RECOIL at this time.

    Is that the large? I noticed the seat-tube on yours has an extra piece there. Mine is the medium (18") fits me better than the 19" Cannondale I had.

    Yeah, it's a large frame (I'm a little under 6ft). It's got that extra peice on the seat tube, but a gap at the head tube also.

    2009 Diamondback Response. Got it today on craigslist for $40. Just bought this to flip it. Came with a bent rear wheel though I think it can be trued out. In the mean time, I cleaned and lubed her up and put a spare wheelset on that has a bit smoother tires. Feels pretty good on level ground... that Spinner fork is a bit wonky though. Could use a new chain and about 10 various bolts that are a bit rusted. Other than that, hard to go wrong for $40.

    Yep, I think for $40 you did really well on that purchase.

    Don't know if I posted my bike. Got it on clearence at Dick's since it's last years model 09 Response Sport. Bike is amazing so far and is treating me great. I think I should have went to a 16" frame though instead of the 18"......I'm 5'9 130lbs ... After the bike the accessories start taking a toll on the wallet So worth it tho

    Here is my DiamondBack craigslist steal of a build. Its a Topanga FS. I have swapped out about 85% of this bike. I am still using the original shifters, cassette and front derailleur. Everything else has been swapped out with performance and budget in mind.

    An update - now with SLX disc brakes

    As always, a work in progress.
    Just added the new disc brakes and Alex SX44 rims with XT hubs.

    Still on the shopping list is a SLX crankset and external BB, XT pedals and new lock-on grips.

    And I'm going to strip and polish or brush the frame.

    Here is my '08 Response with mismatched rims and a few battle scars, but I have a question. Why is it spelled RESPONCE with a "C" on my bike. Is it a typo and my bike is worth thousands.....I wish!!

    2010 Mission 2

    Took some photos the day I got the bike from Giantnerd about two months ago.

    Everything is stock except I've since put on Oury lock-on grips and Sram X9 shifters. The wheels are pretty cheap so I'm going to get new ones soon. This is my first full suspension and it's good so far.

    selling my like-new diamondback coil ss

    I loved the disk brakes on this bike. It was replacing a similar one that was stolen from me when I purchased it, a few years back, but I haven't used it. It's a shame for it to collect dust and I want to get a hybrid more inline with the way I ride now. I've ridden it about 4 times and that's criminal! It was a little over $850 new and it's still basically new, just not the recent model.

    It needs to go to someone who will use it Not a scratch on it-just a little dust.

    Anyone interested or know anyone who might be?

    Here is my Response Sport, this is my everyday trail bike. few upgrades here and there, needs a new fork and wheels!

    Pricepoint has a killer deal on 2011 Hayes Stroker Trail brakes, so this hardtail is getting them

    If anyone wants the old tektro mechanical disk brakes off this bike they can have them if they pay for shipping!

    Looks like it's a 2003 Topanga Comp Disc

    Here's a link to specs (appear to be the same): BikePedia - 2003 diamondback Topanga Comp Disc Complete Bicycle

    Price is hard to say - $200 is a fairly big percentage of the original $549 price considering it's eight or nine years old. That being said, it may not be a bad deal for an LX-level bike with mechanical discs if it's in really good condition.

    1) Make sure the frame doesn't have cracks or major dents. Cracks are usually spotted around the welded joints.

    2) Make sure the fork is working well (smooth operation through full travel, adjustments work and feel like that make a difference, etc). Note: The fork is the most outdated item on that bike, but is likely fine for entry-level cross country riding. If you have to replace the fork, though, you'll spend more than the price of the bike if new, or you'll need to do some searching for a good, used one.

    3) Make sure the hubs, bottom bracket and headset are smooth and free of play and that the wheels are reasonably true (no large hops/jumps/rim dents/broken spokes).

    4) Very important - make sure the bike fits you! Search online for guidelines and make sure it feels good to you.

    If you don't work on bikes and don't want to learn, you should seriously consider having a shop check it out. You'll pay a small fee for this, but it's worth it.

    With all that done, I'd offer less - maybe $150, but, again, condition matters. If the owner has recently had it serviced and has a shop contact, that paperwork is worth a lot to you...

    At $150 and with no recent evidence of work done, don't be surprised if you need some or all expendables: cables, brake pads, chain and cassette.

    This is my $100 lady. 2010 Diamondback Sorrento Sport. Got her off of Craigslist from a guy who never rode her and let her sit in the garage for two years. She still had the price tags. She's all stock. The only thing I've done so far is take off the reflectors.

    I don't plan on crazy upgrades. I'm just planning on getting new handle bars, seat post, saddle and peddles. Since she is my first, I plan to learn and exercise off of her. Then when I know more of what I want and what I'm doing I'll upgrade to something different (maybe).

    2012 Overdrive V I got in a weird deal for next to nothing, decided I am going to make it my super light cross country bike so pretty much will only be using the frame. This is my first 29er

    I have a bunch of parts going into it that have been laying around, will be all EA70 stuff, X.0 shifters, x.9 der. The stock wolverine tires look nice, just need to find a nice light set of disk wheels.

    Good choice on the Overdrive. I love them. I have two, one setup as a 1X9, and one as a single speed. All of them have had everything upgraded except the frame.

    I think those tires are wire bead though, so you could probably save some more weight by getting a set of kevlar bead tires.
