Here is my 1993 Bridgestone XO-1, the last of two years they were produced by Bridgestone. The size is a 52cm. The geometry on these bikes tended to fit a little on the big side as they have longer top tubes. This particular one has a 55cm top tube. I believe I am actually the third owner of this bike. I acquired this bike from Mauricio Rebolledo, a custom frame builder in Northern California (, who got this bike from a former customer who gave this bike to him because the cracked rear seatstay/canti boss was too expensive to repair. Rebolledo rebrazed the stay, replaced the canti braze-on and gave this bike to me. The seatstays were not originally tusk colored, but orange. They were painted tusk-white to match the DT color.

Since I've acquired this bike this past year, I've been riding it pretty much everywhere I go and it has gone through various modifications.

It's most current setup is as follows:
