Greetings Cyclofiends, Here are some photos of my Bridgestone XO-5 hybrid which I purchased at a thrift shop for the paltry sum of $26. I use this bike for exercise and for getting from point A to point B. In addition to washing it, I added some handlebars, a stem, a saddle and some tires.

Modifications are as follows:
Kalloy Tourist AL081 handlebars
Generic chrome quill stem
Panaracer UrbanMax 700x32 tires
Terry Cite-Y Saddle (ugly, but comfortable and practical)

At $17, I consider the Kalloy handlebars be the poor man's Nitto albatross/dove bar. I wouldn't want a handlebar called albatross anyway, since wikipedia defines albatross as "an encumbrance, or a wearisome burden." Who needs that? ;)
