Hi,
I got a DBR Bike which was equipped with Deore DX Group. The Shimano production code says end of 1990.
Can someone say something about thie bik, I did not find it online in the catalogues, how is this bike called, does someone have pictures of an original setup? It is black with dark blue sparkles.

Interesting rear end 50/50 between an estay and a conventional rear triangle.

With that arse end I though it would be easy, but alas I too have drawn a blank,
have you considered that it could be something else stickered up way back when in the early 90's,

I'm sure I've seen a Rocky Mountain with a similar set up, but that one didn't have the extra spar onto the down tube and must have put a lot of stress in the middle of the seat tube

Over to the more knowledgeable on here....

It's not a DiamondBack that's for sure. No idea what it is though

I will check the frame number later. The DBR decal is the only thing which is on the frame, but it looks quite original.

DBR branding came out in 96/7. E-stays were earlier and DiamondBack didn't do one
