The things some people throw away! Can't believe that you got the Farmer John + Cousin tyre combo too.

Very nice.

89 Diamond Backs are awesome 8)

I had the Ascent Ex from the same year and had the same problem with the forks washing out.. I also put it down to the 150mm stem i had fitted :lol:

Can i say how cool a Turbo saddle would look on it and maybe a M-730 XT seatpost in black?

Love it by the way :wink:

What a lovely bike. Some folks must need their bumps felt. Fancy throwing that away. The tyres might be retro but I seem to recall they aren't much cop on wet grass! I still have the scars.

Great find. Other people's tips are clearly a lot better than mine. I wasn't going to mention the seat setup, but someone else has :-)

This sounds odd, but I don't suppose you've still got/would like to get rid of the rack that was on it? I could do with one for my townie ;-)
