Aluminum frame with a tapered head tube and external cable and hydraulic line runs and has a threaded BB. All pivots have extra large, heavy duty bearings for stiffness and durability, as park bikes go, the frame is pretty low maintenance. Travel is 200mm front/back, this version of the frame has an adjustable forward shock mount which acts like a flip-chip allowing the rider to adjust the geometry.

This DB4L has been mulleted and has a 27.5" front wheel (26" rear), the fork crown was replaced to accommodate the shift in steering geometry. The font (26”) wheel with Center-lock rotor, and the 26" fork crown also come with the bike.

Overall condition of the bike is excellent save some typical paint chips. Wheels are true, all bearings are smooth, and everything is functionally up to spec.

I purchased this for a proposed nearby bike park (that never happened) where I lived previously. It’s mostly been stored in the garage and has seen less than 2 dozen park days total, it’s in very good shape and ready to ride.

Diamondback went out of their way to make a worthy downhill/freeride bike with the DB4L, here’s a link to a video of Kelly McGarry’s historic Redbull Rampage canyon gap backflip as an example: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CFgoXlXsFk8
