Heres my old work bike- mainly original Diamond Back Sorrento, still has most of its Alivio groupset on it- been getting me around for about 8 years. Found in a skip minus its wheels when I lived in Didsbury about 10 years ago. Its had a splash of chain lube, 2 cables and a 3 sets of pads in the last 5 years but apart from that itsnever had a spanner on it. The most comfortable bike in the stable!

This is my bike for commuting to work.....
It’s a Diamond Back of some sort. No model name on it so not to sure what it is.....
It was running Altus A10 and has changed it to STX RC Shifters/Brake Levers, DX Rear and Exage Sport Derailleur’s and Sugino Cranks.
