I have tried to put my 1993 Bridgestone RB-1 back to its "classic" state.

Frame and Fork 59cm Red RB-1 Headset Tange Falcon F. Derailleur Shimano Ultegra R. Derailleur Shimano Ultegra Shifters Shimano Ultegra bar-end Cranks Shimano Ultegra; 48x38* Bottom Bracket Shimano Ultegra Pedals MKS Sylvan track with clips and straps Freewheel Shimano cassette; 13x28* Hubs Shimano Ultegra (f), Shimano RSX (r)* Rim Matrix IsoC* Tire Hutchinson Excel 700x25* Brakes/Levers Suntour Superbe Pro Saddle Turbo* Seatpost Kalloy SP-248; 220mm Handlebars Nitto, modified #165, deep drop Stem Ritchey Force Road Grips White cork* C-T - 59cm TT 58.5cm Head angle 74 Seat angle 72.5 Standover 82.5cm

It's not completely original but things wear out (*) after consistent riding over 12 years. I have ridden this bike in triathlons, adventure races and on dirt roads. The pictures don't do it justice but this is the ultimate working man's race bike.

Thanks for considering my bike
