    I like the token 3D purple seat post clamp lever.
    Too many bikes, and just enough time to ride them.

    Seen in passing:

    $40 is a bit steep, I think - but anyone interested? I could try to pick it up.

    Actually, while I'm on the subject, I have two Diamond Backs in my shed, waiting their turn...

    Red / Maroon pattern (complete bike)


    Anyone interested?

    That was my first MTB and was stolen. How much if I wanted to build it for nostalgic reasons?

    Vintage Diamond Back

    Sorry Jim, both of mine are sold and the craiglist post is gone - but any "project" bike should be $50 or less. Expect to pay more for a nicer bike or one that's been overhauled.

    I think it's another $50 or so to ship a bike, so your best bet is to go local and wait, I'd say.

    1994 Ascent

    Here's the last pic of my Ascent. I bought it in Hanoi for $25 and rode it 1000km to Kunming in China.
    Got into mountain biking on it.

    Stuck on Avid SD5's with XT levers, SLX shifters, Deore crank, and LX hubs. Small block 8 on the rear and a Maxxis mobster front. It was great.

    The day after I put a set of eggbeaters on it it got stolen. **** on all bike thieves. Now I'm riding a $150 "K-Mart" special until my dream ride gets built.

    I just picked this Diamond Back Axis up from a buddy a few days ago- It was bought used in the early-mid 90's and ever since it has been floating around a group of friends- at that time it was "the" bike everyone wanted... after all FULL XT! and pretty darn light- brings back some memories for sure.

    I am trying to get a handle on what year it is and figure it is in the ~1992 area but am still trying to piece it together. It is not too important as no matter what it is a cool old rig and this one has some history to it for me. I gave it a quick degrease and wash but I plan on breaking it down and giving it a proper cleaning, repacking the bearing and replacing the cables, tubes - hopefully everyting else works as it is-

    It has Shimano XT 7 speed shifter/ brake pods, rear der, hubs and cranks - Most of it is m730 but I need to check on the Rear der and shifters-

    The color is tough to describe it is a grey/blue/purple pearl - I have not found a picture of another one like it yet- though the ones I am posting won't show it all to well...

    The frame is True Temper OX -

    It will be a fun project to play with anyway- Here are some quick phone pics...

    Funny coincidence...


    Was just browsing this thread when the doorbell rang. UPS guy left a big box on the porch.

    Pretty sure it has a Diamondback frame in it.



    Pics when the wife leaves for long enough that I can unpack it, snap a shot, and hide it in my loft

    That's a pretty cool one and I've never seen that paint job, either. I've had a couple of '91 models, and they're either black or orange with splatter paint. I'll bet yours if a '90 or '92 and we could figure it out with component info. The shifters, for example, don't look like thumbies, so they're not M730.

    If you can find the stamps, you can date the components with this information:

    Ok, wife's out finishing up her Xmas shopping, so.....



    a bit newer than some, but I'm a sucker for anything made of Easton tubing that got put together in the USA.

























    Anyone know who built these frames for DBR?
