Evening all,

Picked up this Diamondback road bike from a nice chap who had decided to pass it on. It say Diamondback Monza but google doesn’t bare any fruit. He did mention that is was a team bike at one point.

Any ideas on age or any other info? Would love to rebuild in original spec

Many thanks

Andy

It's a cyclo cross bike, rather than a pure road bike.
With the correct tyres, it can still be used as a road bike

I've also got a Diamondback Monza road bike. I've spent ages trying to work out its history but not got very far. There seem to be other Diamondback bikes of the same era named after other racetracks with lower grade tubes + components (e.g hockenheim)

Mine is Columbus Altec 2+ tubing

Nick Craig used to ride diamond back as a pro. I think he runs (ran?) A bike shop in Whaley bridge, Derbyshire. If there's more than one bike shop, I don't know which. Might be worth a Google and a call to see if anything comes to light
