Hello I'm new to the forums.

Hey everyone,

I'm 16 and a female and I love to mountain bike. I wanted to make my first post with a picture of my bike but im waiting to upload the photos.

It's a diamond back frame
-manitou sherman forks
-fox vanilla rc rear shock
-hayes nines hydraulic disc brakes
-mavic rims/yellow hubs

That's all I know for now. Any comments on my bike?

Sounds like it's an XTS Moto or something from the sound of the build. Nice bike. Ahhh a female freerider; Welcome! The groms on the Forum are already in love with you

Welcome to the forum...That's a pretty nice build but I don't think I'll be able to comment fully until you get some pics...of the bike that is.

Welcome.

Need more info on the sherman, but you should be able to measure the travel manually.

I think its a specialized frame, its pretty sick, and mtbmel is my riding buddy. Her bike is really nice, im thinking its a specialized because her other specialized frame she has is an fsr elite FS and the frame thickness match but idk. I have a pic of it on my phone but its crappy quality.

ok im not sure what frame it is because my brother decided to paint it black, it looks just like my specialized as cmktech said, but i remember we had a diamondback too. When i get a pic up i guess i will have better luck.
