Dyna-Tech Diablo titanium frame
16/17 " Frame (I think)
Fully working Rock Shox Mag 10's front suspension
Dyna-Tech Seat post
Shimano Deore LX shifters
VSA saddle
Deore LX front and rear derailer
Dia Comp 986 brakes
Deore rear hub and Mavic rims
Recent full service


I bought this bike a year or two after my friend bought from new. It is in great condition and still has all original parts apart from front brake that I recently replaced after a full service including checking and pumping up the suspension. This has been in the garage covered under a sheet for around 10 years and used once/ twice a year. I have cleaned it every time I have cleaned my main bike so it looks very good for a bike of its age. It has maybe 3 small light scratches that can be touched up.

Rides very smooth. Solid bike. Good overall. Never used for commuting. Light trails only

I am looking for £130 (dropped from £150 after 2 weeks) (ideally pick up). Based in Runcorn, Cheshire. I would welcome any viewings, questions or advice. Thanks for your time.

Matt

Lovely bike, sadly too small for me. It's from 93 or earlier, because I'm 100 % certain this was not part of the 1994 Dynatech range.

Hi, I couldnt remember exactly the year was that I bought it as was nearly 20 years ago.
I had looked online and have seen the colour scheme around 94 but not with the Mag 21's fitted, with fixed forks.

I will have to dig deeper online to find the exact year. Thanks for your help.

Hi

It is a '92 Diablo, I have an original Spinner rigid fork (17.5" frame size - which I think this looks like) spare if someone is looking to buy this and wants to return to original spec

Cheers
Matt

Hi, I have spent some time this afternoon going through early 90's RS and I agree. They do look more like a Mag 10 or Mag 30 than any other RS of the time. Thanks

Hi,

Its a 93 Diablo RS just like the one I brought in 93 and in the 93 SPD cat here:

http://www.retrobike.co.uk/gallery2/v/M ... 3.jpg.html

Front fork is original Mag 30 but front brake is not original. Tyres are original though. Bike was £735 back in 93.

This is only the third 93 Diablo RS I have ever seen!!

Good luck with the sale!!

Ok, my '92 frame has mudguard braze-ons at the dropouts, I wondered why this one hasn't but that explains it
