    I was not able to find much info on Diamondbacks. I bought an Apex of unknown vintage and wanted to know the same thing. I ended up looking at the Shimano date codes. They were all late '92 so I figure I have a 1993 Apex. The components description on bikepedia is a match for that year as well. Mine says "Diamond Back" with two words on the downtube. I understand later it changed to one word like on your bike. That should help get you closer anyway.

    Looks post BioPace if that is the original crank set. Mid/Late 90's if it is. I just bought an late 80's/Early 90's Diamondback with BioPace rings and speckle green paint job.
    Anyone know how to decipher the Diamondback serial number?

    A little more help on the brand and model of the components may help. Because of the parallax hubs and what loks like an Exage ES RD I a,m going to say '94ish may be a Topanga maybe a Sorrento

    Bikepedia should get you close.
