Good evening,

this is my Diamond Back Axis (1991 I think) in full Ox True Temper steel, it's my winter bike for muddy roads, full xt transmission, xtr v-brakes, crossmax ST wheels.

It's a lovely frame. Seems to be in good condition. Not too sure about the modern components, but you're riding it! :wink:

one of my all time favorite frames. i lusted after one of these as a teenager, i had the DB Sorrento of the same year.

i would love to try and get my hands on a similar one.

personally, i love the modern components, that makes it functional and easy to use every day

looks great!

I have a 91 Axis, too - with the black splatter paint job.

Just wish I had the original forks for it.

That looks superb and the modern components suit it a treat. I love the look of the layback seatpost on it, just looks like it wants to be raced.

Joint best bike I've ever owned. Joint top with my current On-one 456. Tried others including FS the only thing that came close was a Marin Mount Vision Pro. Would love to get hold of both of these again.
