Diamondback Parkway
#1
My wife is not happy.....

Bought a 58cm Diamondback Parkway frame and fork; which I will receive on Friday. From the pictures (duh didn't save before the seller took the listing down); and the Tange fork; I believe that it is a '94 or '95. A friend got it, and is bringing it to me at the end of the week.

Except for the door, the garage is finished - we are anxious to have it completely finished.

That's a big bike, almost 23". What was it that interested you in it & how is the new GT coming?

58cm/23" is what works for me on road type bikes Smile .

It has Tange tubing according to the seller. I have been watching for bikes and frames with tubing by Tange. My green GT has Tange tubing.

Everything is one hold until the garage door is installed, then moving stuff from the house to the garage.

Get some pics off for sure, I am not aware of any Tange tubed Diamondback Parkway's. Hi-ten steel is all I see.

me either, but the price was low enough, and the size is right; and my friends said that it looked really good - they are serious bicyclists.

I believe that it once looked something like this:
http://jakesbikes.co.uk/resources/images/small_img_8009.jpg
The seat post is 60cm c-t, 58cm c-c, the top tube is 60cm c-c, the O.L.D. is 126mm and the chain stays are 45cm. Serial number: I4L44939. The fork is Tange Unicrown. The frame tubing is Diamond Back cross tubing. Both the frame and fork are steel or alloy steel. The frame and fork accept cantilever or linear pull (aka V-) brakes and ISO 622 (700c) rims. I believe that it is early 1990s vintage.
