It's 1998 model year and pretty much stock setting.

Looking at the decals and the Vs I'd suggest that's later in the 90s at least 97, maybe 98 / 99?

Not with those decals or V brakes on, it didn't.

Assuming they're stock, it's at least 97 - but I'm guessing a year or 2 later.

Hey Rider where bouts did you get that scan from?
Can you possibly scan it in higher resolution for me?

Hello,

I rescued this dusty old bike from a local pawn shop for just a few dollars but I am at a loss as to exactly which year/model Diamondback it is.

My best guess is it's an old Topanga or Sorrento.

Any Ideas?

Purchased another Topanga today identical to yours, the gear shifters were seized but with a bit of ezyglide lubrication spray and a clean up and re adjustment of front and rear derailleurs, seat swap over to a decent adura roadbike type saddle and some VP565 metal pedals, its a sweet bike.
Got a fair few scratches on it, Topanga sticker is intact but a bit scratched, love the pearlescent white colour it is.
:)

My memory is hazy after 2 decades, but wasn't the Topanga full cro-mo and the Sorrento cro-mo main tubes only?
