    I've heard of 160mm hardtails, but doesn't this seat tube angle and seat position look a bit crazy. They're almost dead center above the rear tire.

    Probably has an owner who's very self conscious about new geo.

    At least it's not an "endo machine" anymore.

    i'm guessing the original fork on that thing was about 4 inches shorter...

    Hence the *bling* idea to put the fork on backwards to counter balance the geometry differences. Lol

    That bottom bracket height doesn't look abnormally high IMO. 4in down in the front would put the BB pretty low. The chainstay angle looks within reason as well. But, not a perfect profile angle though so may be the case.

    those wheels are definitely bigger than 26" and the bb looks to have a rise instead of a drop. agreed on the wonky pic angle making it difficult to tell though...

    It's a Manitou, reverse arch. Looks like that custom frame has a nice start of rust.

    the glob of metal right below the seat clamp looks really nice too... What is really nice are the dropouts for the rear tire.

    I wonder if anybody is on here looking at this and going hey, thats my ad!

    That's definitely worth saving. I'm looking for a wheelset right now, I'm going to be on the lookout to make sure I don't end up with a fixed gear front wheel.

    Custom does not necessarily imply quality...
    I don't know why,... it's just MUSS easier to pedal than the other ones.

    Motocard Refill Card TurboSpoke Bicycle Exhaust System

    Each Motocard has a different shape. The different shapes mean that each card vibrates in a different way when the spokes hit it. This means that a range of engine sounds are made. Each card also has two "power-slots" so you can actually tune the sounds yourself by adjusting how much of the card is in contact with the spokes. Try it out and race against your friends! A must have accessory for your Turbospoke!

    -**For use with Turbospoke - the bicycle exhaust system

    -**Makes your bike look and sound like a motorbike

    -**3 additional Motorcards for 3 different sounds

    -**Truly customize your riding experience

    -**The perfect addition to your Turbospoke!


    For the Turbospoke:*Vroom! Vroom! Turn a regular bicycle into a MEAN MACHINE! Tomax Turbospoke adds growl to any ride! SAVE BIG! Ever put cards in the spokes of your bike as a kid? The Turbospoke does one better. It uses specially designed replaceable cards that flick in the spokes of the bike. The sound is then channeled through the chrome acoustic chamber to create a GROWL people will notice. Of course, the Turbospoke isn't just for fun. It's also a valuable safety accessory.

    I remember when it came out via 2001 or thereabouts. The Black line was the first ones. It was never proven to be better than the traditional front arch so it was dropped after a few years. More of a fad really.

    Is that dried up masking tape that was holding it together? Or maybe just some cloth bandage?

    Whatever is thrown over the seat makes it look like a turkey, which would go well with the pig and milk tank, I guess.

    I'd propably pay $50 just to destroy it. We've got two morons that ride those on our MUP, one who thinks he's easyrider, the other thinks he winning at Laguna Seca, neither can read the words "No Motorized Vehicles." Both are on the "accidentally drop a stick in the front wheel" list. If I wanted to hear and smell chainsaw motors on my ride, I'd have brought my own.

    Ha! Back in 8th grade shop class, I did something virtually identical to a POS Huffy I had. It included thin sheet, brazing rod, and a shitpot of Bondo. That was 1976!

    A fixie front wheel would have no method to brake. No track on the rim or disc mount on the hub, which makes it different than any other bike front wheel, right? Am I missing something?

    fwiw, the front wheel of a fixie is the one with the brake.

    the wheel simply came off someones fixie. it's just a regular wheel like the 11speed one also referenced...

    This, with a slight correction.

    A fixie wheel is going to have a brake track. I have a fixed gear (not trendy so not calling it a "fixie") and I have brakes front and rear because I ride it on hills where I can spin out and I'm not trying to be cool with no brakes/front brake only. If it is a true, serious track bike wheel, maybe not? I have a co-worker who rides and volunteers at the velodrome; I'll ask him.

    Yeah, now that you mention it, I do remember that some have a big weld and are not meant for brakes. It's not so easy to slow down quickly with the pedals and I worry doing so will wreck my knees, plus as I mentioned, I'm not just riding around a flat city on mine.

    a "fixie" rim? you are just describing a very cheaply made rim. pretty sure all of my rims are just standard rims that i could use on a trackbike, mountainbike, road bike, beach cruiser or just about any other bike that will allow the diameter to fit. next you are going to tell me there are fixie seats too...

    Couple of years ago a guy in the UK was jailed for hitting and killing someone on a fixie. Woman walked out in front of him, he was slowing down but still hit her. She fell over, smacked her head on the ground, died.

    He was jailed because it is illegal to ride a bike on the road with no brakes. Being cool cost the guy his freedom.

    Do you think they printed that MSRP tag just for the photo...?, or just got utterly ripped off themselves. That's an obscene price for something slightly better than a big-box store bike.

    If you go to the website, that is the price of that bike. I wonder how many they sell in a year. I guess someone bought it and then realized they got totally taken and are now hoping to recover part of their loss.

    Rare Diamond Back and shimano Adult Mountian bike - $500
    © craigslist - Map data © OpenStreetMap

    (google map)

    bicycle type: mountain
    brake type: caliper
    condition: good
    electric assist: none
    frame size: 20 inches
    handlebar type: flat
    make / manufacturer: Diamond Back
    suspension: other/unknown
    wheel size: 20 in
    Let me start off the post by saying If you want something to get you from point a to b this is it and it will do so in style you will set yourself apart from other bike riders because this bike is very rare let me tell you why. So Diamond back is made in Taiwan and Shimano is a company that is in Japan it is mostly known for its Fishing poles but it also makes other things aswell. Diamond Back usually makes everything on its bikes but Shimano made afew parts on this bike and it even has the Shimano brand logo on the bike and the parts it made for the bike. This bike is a rare bike and with that being said it will have somethings that need a little fixing but it will get you where you need to go. So what needs fixed? the gear selector button on one side and the chain guard on the back and the seats a little torn not bad though But I have both of those parts and the back tire gets a little low but bring a can of fix a flat with you and your good. Thats why its so cheap This bike is a $600 bike and you wont see another one like it. $500 O.B.O gets it, Its worth it for the price. I can email pics if entrusted please reply by email. It also has new brakes all the way from the front to the back.

    That listing is the equivalent of the phone caller that keeps talking until you buy something, from beginning to end, errr... all the way from the front to the back.
    I don't know why,... it's just MUSS easier to pedal than the other ones.

    No Pics, too rare to be caught on film.

    I was going to reply to his ad with the four super rare Diamondbacks I have in the garage, all with Shimano components, but the internet is already full.

    How was the suspension on that rubber toilet plunger? I'm sure there was little-to-zero lateral rigidity.

    Only if you are "entrusted".

    "brakes all the way from the front to the back", let's see, that would be about 18 pairs the way I'm calculating it.

    I've admitted alway had a love affair with 90's Cannondales, but $1k seems a little aggressive. What do people think a reasonable asking price would be? I'm asking for a friend.
