I'm quite chuffed today after finding this lovely old Diamondback. I previously owned and subsequently sold a 93 version as it was too small although this one very almost fits!
It had been stored away for over ten years and had dust to prove but after a quick hose down it was clear it hadn't ever seen much use...the drivetrain teeth are excellent at a glance and the mavics have virtually no wear. The main negative is the XT Sti's are as sticky as a sticky thing on national "lets be sticky day" so if anyone has any XT thumbies going reasonable please shout out. Apart from that issue its hopefully gonna be a very straight forward strip n' polish. Even the Panaracer Dusters appear good. There are a few light marks to the paint but overall looks tidy. I am also low on spare spuds if anyone has a tidy pair sitting idle?!
:D

The internals of them STI's are quite basic strip and clean them and they will be good to go

Very nice - love Diamondbacks, especially the 1991 lineup. I have the Axis Team, Apex, & Ascent EX - would love to get my mitts on the neon orange Axis from that year :)
