1997 Diamondback Viper XL

Cheap Bike

I thought this was a nice 97 frame, but when I got it found that it was for 1" threaded - so had to quit it.

I built it up with every unwanted spare part I had laying around and sold it on Craigslist.

The guy who bought it couldn't fit it in his car, so he grabbed the handlebars and twisted them sideways to be paralel with the bike.

UGGG! -that's just why I don't like quil type stems.


Chromoly Viper XL frame in deep red with V-brake mounts, 3/8 drops, and American BB.

Viper XL decal look added and DB logo is hand painted gold (not me)

Haro 1 piece cranks with Fusion sprocket

Chrome 4 piece handlebars (maybe walgoose)

Tektro lever and general v-brake arms

Bell saddle

VP-550 1/2" platform pedals

Dyno threaded fork

Stem is from a Dyno Nitro - generic

Rear wheel is a 48 spoke Femco type single wall

Front is a 36 spoke Weinman style single wall
