    "New" 2008 Sortie 3

    "New" 2008 Sortie 3-diamondback-sortie-3-001.jpg

    I really got fortunate and won a 2008 Sortie frame / fork / wheels on eBay from my local Goodwill. Cheap! When I went to pick it up, I was shocked at the condition - it didn't have a scratch on it. It didn't even look ridden - like somebody got a warrantied frame, then never finished building it back up. It was missing a drivetrain / brakes.

    It DID have a LOT of dust on it, so it had been sitting for some time.

    Anyways, I happened to have a 1x drivetrain, since I had been planning on upgrading my wife's bike to 1x (before it got stolen!!!!!). So on the XT 1x11 went, and viola! A "NEW" 2008 Sortie.

    The final piece I am waiting on is the matching red Crank Brothers Stamp pedals.

    I just got back from it's first test ride, and it feels great! Not an equal replacement to my Camber Carbon Expert (that was stolen!!!), but pretty nice nonetheless. Despite the alu frame and the pedestrian oem style wheels (Weinmann Taurus rims on Deore hubs), this machine is relatively light. It's a light wheelset away from being a real lightweight!

    Stamps arrived and installed. A few more rides in and I'm really enjoying it!
