    Thoughts on this used Diamondback

    I thinking about getting this bike. I know it's an older bike but seems an ok kinda deal.
    The frame is a Diamondback x-link from 2000 or 01
    I know a little about the components but know nothing about the Marzocchi Bomber Jr T. It's again around 2000-01. What can you tell me about it.

    Looks like a downhill fork on a XC bike.
    What's your thoughts on the package

    I had a DBR X2 from 2000 or 01. The frame cracked at the upper shock mount. They replaced it with a Diamondback XTS-3? frame.

    Mine had a single crown Marz Z3 long travel with all LX stuff. Its a pretty basic FSR four-link deal, and you can flip that 4th link for adjustable travel. Wasn't the best climber, but was lots of fun.

    Thanks,

    I called the guy, he said he bought the frame and built it up, which is why there's a big triple clamp bomber fork on it as well as Hayes hydraulic disk brakes.

    It really seems like a good buy.
