    DiamondBack Mission as Downhill Race Bike

    Hey all, What do you think about my race bike for easier downhill races? I race on the east coast so lots of pedaling with easier sections. It's set up with a XFusion Vengeance HLR, Gamut Chain guide, Avid Codes, Deity bars. Weighing in around 33-34 lbs. Can easily be brought down to 32 lbs or less. My full race bike is a Chumba F5.

    Hello, I have only recently hjoined this forum arfter noticing your bike, it nice.
    I also have a Mission 1, im unsure of the year. It looks identical to yours (frame) but mine has Marzocchi forks and Rock Shox rear shock.

    I have converted it to a 1x9 setup and need to find a chain guide. How did you get around the no ISCG tab issue?

    Glad of any help, cheers.

    Ride it like you stole it. Some DH courses like the sea otter classic, you are at a disadvantage using a dh bike.
