I do have a thing for DiamondBack. I think they are most underrated.

I have a WCF 4.0 that is not in the picture, as I've just moved back from Spain, and it's not got here yet, and I'm awaiting delivery of an Axis 96. The wife's BSO hangs in my garage, but I damn near put my back out lifting it, it's soo heavy

The garage isn't mine, as mine has my car in it, and I've only got temporary loan of this one from a neighbour.

Nice, I have a 1986 Apex which has been converted to 1x7 city bike/grocery getter and a 1989 Apex which is in the process of being converted to a single speed rain bike

Latest bike to arrive. Despite being original, I'll have to get rid of the Gripshift, which I despise. Will change for M739 shifters and brakes. Unfortunately the large chainring was bent in transit, so will have to replace. Why do people remove the rearwheel? The boxes are designed for the bike to be packaged with the rear wheel in place, and this then protects the chainrings. I also suspect the rear dropout was bent in transit, but is simple to straighten.

Can someone let me know what year it was?

Not sure on that one Al.

MY 93 Axis Pro is OX True Temper, and originally should have been full M900.

XT M09 were the XT shifters on offer in 92 an 93, so that narrows it down.
