    Dagger HELP!

    HELP!... Does anyone know anything about this bike. I bought it off of craigslist last month. All XTR, race face, snakebite, hayes, brake therapy adapter, etc. It rides fine and is in great shape.

    Thanks

    Looks pretty nice. What did you pay for it?

    I see that you have a rear brake issue, a serious one at that.

    Do you take it off any sweet jumps?

    And I second the fact that you have rear brake issues.

    I'm thinking he doesn't have the brake therapy adaptor installed. I remember seeing those bikes before, can't remember for sure but I think they were Easton's own bike. Looks like a cool "vintage" bike, barely ridden even.

    I paid $440.00 with the disc brake conversion (Lucky Me). Relax I am waiting for the special bushing for the brake therapy conversion for the rear caliper. The bike is in fantastic shape, no squeaks or creaks.

    Besides missing the rear caliper, I'd be flipping myself over the handlebars with the rear lever hooked to the front wheel. (I don't ride moto style...)

    Nope, it's just you

    Wasn't there a Diamondback trail bike about 6 years ago that looked just like that?

    Stop drinking cheap beer and read carefully.... the floating brake (brake therapy) will be used not to avoid brake influence but to allow the bike to run a rear disc brake as it doesn't have disc tabs.

    I used to have a Dagger back in 1996. It was a great bike. They were based in Southern California somewhere - and considered fairly high end for their time.

    Yours is a later model - prolly 1999 or so. This model came out towards the end of Daggers run.

    I'd say you got a great deal at $440!

    It's a keeper !

    Definitely a nice bike, though the forks are probably overkill. I used to dream about an AMP-rear triangle Dagger back in the day... 96 or so... 3 inches of travel max...

    U got yourself a decent trailbike. Cheers

    To the rear derailleur, or were you looking at the spoke?
