New bike day

Well new for me. Just scored this diamondback expert tg for cheap. Needs a little work cleaning it up. My first road bike in a long time.

I think it's a 93. I'll have to double check the serial no.

I've been working under the impression that mine is a '94, at that point they were just calling it an Expert. Nice riding bike, Shimano RSX except for brake calipers and hubs (Exige). I primarily use it as my winter bike, as it's the only semi-modern bike I've got with clinchers. Nothing particularly special about it, but it just quietly gets the job done. And, it's my only briftered bike.
