Don't do it.
Sounds like you have all the answers; so why are you asking here? I'd take jimc's advice and run the suspension-corrected - - the geometry change will improve that dinosaur's trail manners...
Disassembly/reassembly is totally do-able. Just take your time, ziplock bag and label everything that you are unfamiliar with, take pictures if you have to and it should go fine.
Damn tempting. 'Course, it would probably get used as little as the Welcome to BikeShoppingForums! The OFFICIAL What Should I Buy? thread sticky I made. Everyone wants to think their situation or...
It's an old bike.
Knowing C Law, his recommendation was most likely with tongue firmly in cheek. :lol:
Haha, trailing-link Euro fugliness. Doesn't Iceland have a high suicide rate? Stands to reason if that's all...
I assume you're talking rotor size. Size you can go is dictated by the adapter, not frame or fork mounts. Frame and fork mounts, even if they are post/direct mounts are almost always sized for 6" - -...
Your Suntour fork does not have rebound damping; however, since you have a 700c hybrid that I'd hope you won't be taking on anything more demanding than gravel paths and buff dirt paths, you will be...
In short, what makes an adequate fork better than a cheap one is adjustable rebound damping. That is what gives the suspension and rider a degree of control over rough terrain.
Only if it's bitcoins; otherwise you could go $85.21.
Does it matter?
It is. I bought it. Thanks.
Fine machine you've got there, RICO. Guy on a Tallboy whupped my a** in our first enduro of the season. Mind you, I don't find my SB66 lacking in any way, so it had to have been all in the rider ;)....
Yes. Rotor size for rotor size, mounting points are precisely the same industry-wide across all brands.
Sounds like my kinda commute :thumb:

Too bad haha - - Syntace WM40 MX is disc-specific . . . .
I'd go with the Kona P2 if I was looking for value+burliness (ex. - Bikeman Kona Project 2, 26 Triple Butted Mountain Fork, 440, Canti-Disc).
ed (one of our BF members) has been rocking one for a...
^^ Very cool! Hey, be sure to post it in the 'Post Your Rigs' thread too.
If you look closely, you'll see it's a tapered (1.5 > 1 1/8) steerer; that's not going to work on your DB. Too bad, because otherwise it would be worth trying for.
First off, what you have there is one of my favorite "plumber's nightmare" Diamondback designs (yeah, I know . . . I'm a bit off). I just retired a DB XTS Moto last year of very similar design - -
You don't need the leverage of longer levers so much as you need your levers to transmit more braking power. Look seriously at Hayes Primes...they are powerful enough to haul down my downhill bike on...
