my spring project: a Bridgestone MB-5 representing my return to
fat knobbies after a 9 year hiatus. I found this bike rusting away
and with some contributions from the parts bin and swap meets was
able to put together a decent trail bike. Did shell out for a Rohloff
chain tensioner, which wasn't cheap but is really nice. Other parts
highlights include mismatched (black/silver) right and left Ritchey
road crank arms (long story) and a suzue 130 freewheel rear hub,
respaced to give a chainline that is spot-on. 38-18 is maybe geared
a little high, but it's what I'll roll for now. I might swap out
later to a slightly shorter stem and some riser or Mary bars.
for hosting this great site.
