Hi, this will be a build thread (as it seems the first one) of my newly purchased Diamond Back Overdrive from 1992. Made from True Temper the Overdrive is one of the very first production frames accomodating a 700x43 tire - in reality you even can fit a 29x2.1 tire into the rear end...

"Our SuperCross 700c bike is designed for skilled off-rad riders who are looking for high speed performance. The bigger wheels act as natural shock absorbers, rolling over obstacles rather then into them. […]"

We heard about it, recently :)

In my case, the Overdrive will become a single speed monster - of course...

love it, this one proves there's no such thing as a new idea.... just a lot of people with short memories.
