Up for sale is a super awesome vintage 1995 Diamond Back Racing WCF Vertex!

The main tubes on this 18" M/L bike are Welded Carbon Fiber. Basically, carbon fiber tubes are bonded to cro-moly lugs, which are then welded at the joints. The bonding work on this baby is solid. In fact, I have not seen or heard of one cracking, breaking, or otherwise coming apart. There is one spot of surface corrosion at the seatstay bridge, but the condition of the bike is impressive at nearly 30 years old.

The trail feel is smooooth and a joy to experience. The ride quality is steel, but the weight and vibration absorption is carbon. I've had this bike for awhile, but it is a size too small for me, and it is time to pass it along to it's next owner who will appreciate its character and style.

Its componentry is similarly vintage, although the previous owner upgraded a few items from stock, and I've added a few changes myself. SRAM X.0 3x9 speed system with Grip Shift and Shimano LX crankset. The fork is a long-travel (80mm) Rock Shox Judy XC HydraCoil. Shimano LX V-brakes are mounted up front and back. The rest of the cockpit consists of an Answer ProTaper alloy bar, Origin 8 Pro Lite Seatpost, Kalloy Uno woven carbon fiber stem, and a WTB Speed V ProGel saddle. The bike is rolling on Maxxis Larsen TT tires for low resistance and speed on and off road. The wheels spin smoothly on Specialized hubs.

I accept PayPal or cash in person. The bike is available for local pick up, or I will ship it within the continental US at the buyer's expense (usually $120-$150). Feel free to hit me up with any questions!
