is my Baby! A 1991 Bridgestone RB1 I bought brand new in Lewisville,
TX. I have only recently upgraded the wheels to Mavic Open Pro with
Shimano 10 speed Ultegra hubs. I kept my original 7 speed cassette
but upgraded to Shimano Sora STI shifters/brake levers. Sora are
the only STI shifters/brake levers in 7 speed.
have about 20,000 miles on this bike mainly on club rides and countless
charity tours in and around the Texas Hill Country. I live in San
Antonio, TX but ride all over Texas and have rode to the Texas coast
(150 miles) on 4 occasions. It's a dream on a steel frame. I have
raced it once and crashed it twice, with no damage to the frame
except for scratches on the paint and the rear derailleur. And a
broken Elbow on me. I felt more pain when the guy who picked me
up off the pavement threw my bike into his truck bed.
can still hang with most of the young guys on the club rides at
about 18-20 mph average on 50 milers. The young guys (I'm 48), Look
at the bike with a puzzled look. The older guys look and say "sweet".
flashy stuff, no bling, just plenty of class.
