The Diamond Back Ridge Runner was likely the second mass produced mountain bike, right behind the Specialized Stumpjumper in 1981. Most of the parts are the same between those models, since there were not many components produced for MTB's back then. This bike is entirely stock except for the saddle, tires and spokes/nipples. I bought the bike from the original owner about 5 years ago, and I relaced the wheels with new stainless steel spokes and nipples, since the originals were a bit rusty, which is a common problem for these Vintage MTB's.

I also cleaned and lightly polished the hubs and rims while they were apart. The wheels look amazing, and the hubs spin forever! Frame/Fork - 18 Champion No 5 tubing by Tange. Wheels - Araya 1.75 laced to Suzue Sealed Bearing Hubs.

Brakes - Dia Compe Cantilever. Cranks - Sugino AT 180mm triple chainring. Although I will probably sell both since I never ride them, just like to look at them. The item "Diamondback Ridge Runner Vintage MTB 1983 Diamond Back" is in sale since Friday, May 8, 2020.
