Hi all - I have a Dynatech Diablo, bought new in 1993 or 1994 from Evans in Croydon. I was just wondering if there were different models of the Diablo, as I saw a post referring to a 'DX' - I can't see any such identifier on my frame. It has Shimano LX throughout, originally Rock Shox front forks, though I had to replace these and also the headset at the same time. Many thanks :D

Simon.

Did you keep the fork? Sometime they just need a service. I bought a pair of early RockShox that had been swapped out on a Raleigh and all they needed was a pump up.

No, the seals were shot and after a few pump-ups which worked for a few rides, it was game over!

Seals can be replaced too but it probably made more financial sense to replace :lol:

Love to see pics of your bike, the Diablo series were lovely and certainly bikes I lusted after as a teenager.
