1977-78 The birth of Diamond Back

Posted: October 15, 2010 in 1977-1978

I wont go into details here, you can find that at OS-DB.Net
1977 was the year the first prototypes and bikes were made for Diamond Back.

The first bike model was the 1977 “MX”.
Seen here on OS-DB.Net MX-1st-Generation
It was TriMoly and can be easily identified by its Euro Bottom Bracket and square brake bridge.

The second bike model was the 1978 “MX”
Seen here on OS-DB.Net MX-2nd-Generation
It was still TriMoly but now offered a American Bottom Bracket.
