Just had a look at this and very nice is it too - the first 'proper' bike I owned was a low end Diamond Back so I too have a soft spot for these 8)

Most likely this model will be tange steel, the '91 bikes were labelled the same (i.e 100% cromo) but True Temper AVR tubes were used for the Ascent EX and Apex with OX being used for the Axis and Axis Team. Later Ascents (from '93 onwards?) did use AVR however whilst the higher end models used TT lite. I have just scored a '94 AVR framed Ascent, can't wait to get cracking with it :)

This is the only pick I have

The marks on the down tube are just mud FYI :wink:

I used this bike, whilst my mate was away in the forces, during my UNI years in 1994/5 as a ride to lectures, he then took back ownership on his return to the UK. I was in S'hampton last month at the barracks visiting and he mentioned re sprays and all sorts of mods. I couldn't let this happen so I said "hold on I'll post you down my Caldera steel daily work bike, which is already re painted in black you can re paint and do whatever with it".
He was shuffed with this idea so I sent the bike down to him, and I am just awaiting the delivery of the Diamondback.
