enjoy your site, thought I would send along a photo of one of mine.
It is as original as I could keep it, which means as a often ridden
bicycle, lots of stuff has worn out and been replaced. Original
are the headset, brakes, front derailleur, shifters, brake levers,
nitto moustache bars. I had a Keith Anderson custom stem made for
it to replace the ritchey with a little more rise to it. When the
original wheels wore out, I put on these Cane Creek Wam wheels.
They are stiff and light with a wider rim profile of 22mm. I replaced
the cranks and bottom bracket with FSA compact to better suit my
riding after wearing out the original cranks. The seatpost and saddle
were replaced recently. I must admit with the addition of all of
the black colored components, the only reason the thompson post
in there is to match the color. The saddle is temporary until my
honey colored brooks swift arrives.
ride this bicycle about 2,000 miles per year. Mostly mixing on and
offroad terrain. It has been wonderful to own and even more fun
to ride. I have taken good care of it. I also own a 94 MB-3 that
I commute on daily, and a 92 MB-2 that is a touring/freeroader.
I also have a 93 MB-1 set up with an xtracycle that I do my grocery
shopping on now but once raced two season of NORBA back in the mid
90's. This one is by far in the best cosmetic shape.
