my Bridgestone MB-3 on about the fifth or sixth of what will surely
be nine lives. Has seen duty as the go-to mountain bike, the everyday
commuter, the loaded tourer, and the multi-purpose "one bike"
with two wheel sets shod with different tires. Probably another
life or two I'm forgetting about right now, but always with flat
bars, bar ends, and thumbies.
recently I decided to build her up as a moustache bar cruiser. Guess
I just wanted to give some new life to an old friend to get her
more road time. So... time for Nitto technomic and moustache, classic
old Suntour bar end shifters and non-aero levers, beefy flat-proof
Been commuting on her again in this latest configuration, and this
bike has definitely become my favorite errand runner/ grocery shopper.
I've even swapped the tires out for knobbies and given her a singletrack
ride or two.
like her this way, but am already thinking about her next life.
Might try some On One Midge bars (similar to dirt drops), and give
her a go as a cyclocrosser this winter.
fun bike, but that's no surprise... she's a Bridgestone!
