Been really getting into my old 1994 Diamond Back Response Elite lately. I have a bunch of other vintage bikes, but the heavy rains here in SoCal have made the dirt roads and trails way more attractive. This bike was a junker when found on CL, kind of redid it. I especially like it's metallic red paint, reminds me of my old JC Higgins of 1966.

Not sure if this counts as vintage. It’s ~2005 Access XCL frame (it was new when this thread was originally started!!!), painted semi gloss black, along with a Mosso alloy fork, same paint. Recycled all the other parts from non-disk brake Cannondale F500. Planning to use it for cross-country bombing around the state parks. 30lbs with the bottle cage, pump, and seat bag (with Topeak Alien tool and patch kit in it). I figure that puts the ‘bare’ bike at maybe 26lbs. Pretty good for a beater.

Black seatpost is coming...

Rocky Mountain Ritchey



As found.

Bought this last year sometime and finally cleaned it up to rideable condition. Did an 8 km shakedown and have a few things to tweak but otherwise like it.

Cheers.

Brad

Someone ordered up pictures of an old Stumpy?


Old Stumpy.

Found'er on Kijiji for $95 Cad 3 days ago, paint is rough, but seat post, stem are free, shifts great, bearings and BB are smooth.

Apparently it's an 82 Stumpjumper Sport, one year older than me.

old school rear racks are the only type of accessory that I find the newer stuff better with more side rails to prevent the panniers from hitting the spokes.

1988? GT Timberline

I picked this up at auction awhile back for $45 as I recall. New tires, new seat, new wheels and it would seem to have a new BB. (I tossed the old rack on, I needed something and it was in the bin) I still haven't figured out the advantage/disadvantage to the triple triangle, but the ride is nice and the bike does what it's supposed to. 😁

I like this one, as it's a real Diamond Back, as opposed to the newer Diamondback.I also like the way it's set up. Did you add the ahead set, and what shocks?

Never seen one of those before. That's pretty sweet! Must be a story with the photo location, too.

Location is the old shell of a building in Statesville, NC just around the corner from First Flight Bikes (former home of the MOMBAT collection). If you look at the MOMBAT website, you'll see the same location as the backdrop for many of the photos of museum bikes.
