The best dual-suspension bike for ~$150?

is the 2000 Diamondback X-link I picked up off CL for a tad less than that!



Needs a chain, seat and post... I've got the seat and post in my old parts bin anyway and I'm stealing a chain off the road bike. It came with the original wheels (not shown), but I'm planning on putting on the Spox I rocked "back in the day".

Nice! I'm partial to all the DB Xs. I remember being thoroughly enamoured with the X-6 when it came out and my current trailbike is an XTS-Moto. Rock on, man. Pics when you get it fleshed out, please.

Will do!

Already got the chain and some new grips for it... the bar ends are headed to the bin (I didn't like them ten years ago when they were popular!)

My old Spox need a little bearing attention before they are ready to go...

I can't see the pic due to work firewall; but congrats! Still loving my X2 after almost a decade of usage/breakage/rebuildage
