    not sure, I talked to the local rep this morning and he said they are aiming at LBS action, apparently it is where they made thier money last year. seem to be sticking with BMX stuff as well

    I love that DH bike, I would really like to get a ride on it. I was wondering the same thing about DB the other day, I have a signed poster of Susan Dematte the year she won bronze at the Olympics (she was on the DBR team)

    That's been my dream bike for a long time.

    DB uk is totally separate from DB usa.

    :(

    I emailed them about north american availability and they said they might try to work something out. I haven't heard anything since.

    I have an old school diamondback from Japan. Great bikes...I wonder if they are still made with the same quality.
