I posted this on the I-BOB list, and I don't know if this reaches a
larger audience, but here goes (if you've seen this before, sorry for
1994 Bridgestone RB-1, Red, with silver fork, see reason below. 59 cm
C-T, with a 58.5 top tube, would probably fit someone in the 5' 10" to
6' 0", range depending on the stem choice and how you like the bike to
The bike has an Ultegra triple with corresponding triple front
shifter; Salsa 90 degree stem; ITM 260 bars; WTB saddle; Ritchey post;
rims are Ritchey's, I believe. Bike is in reasonable condition for an
8 year old road bike, mainly paint chips and such. One major change
is that the beautiful flat crown fork has been replaced by a GT
aluminum fork. This was how I bought it, so no options for the
original steel fork. Seems to ride true and straight.
This is a decent, sturdy, entry-level bike for use as a rain bike or
someone getting into riding. I am going to do a tune-up on it -
overhaul everything (hubs, headset, etc), clean the chain, generally
make sure that it is running well. Also, there are options
for switching some stuff out - I believe that I still have the Ritchey
stem, which is very pretty, and I can put a TTT forged stem on it if
you like. Also, there are no pedals on it right now, and I was going
to put Ritchey Logic road pedals on the bike to sell. These allow the
use of Shimano SPD cleats (although Ritchey cleats are a little
smoother on release) and are a very nice, svelte looking road pedal.
If you want it without pedals, we can work out a deal.
Price - I haven't checked the market for used road bikes very much, so
how about $450? I have no idea if this is reasonable and I hope that
people will tell me if this is too high, or at least the resounding
silence will force me to lower the price.
I live in Boulder, Colorado, under a blanket of snow at the current
time, but if you are in the area and want to ride it, or even take it
on a longer ride for an hour or so to see how it fits, let me know.
