    '93 Bridgestone MB-2 rastabike

    Here's a few pics of my college steed - bought new in '93. MB-2 repainted (albeit poorly) with Rasta theme. Wow that fork would flex....pre-modern day suspension. Mostly all original parts - thumbshifters, stem, handlebar, headset, Diacompe 987 brakes w/ stylee Ritchey levers, cogset, wheels, cranks. New seat and seatpost.












    lil' ding in the top tube, as you can see. I don't ride her much anymore...my 5 Spot is just too lusty. But the difference a decade makes!

    enjoy

    what's it worth?

    does anyone have any idea of what this bike is worth?

    it's just too darn small for me to ride anymore and I'd part with it for a decent price

    or should I keep it just for the thumb shifters? you don't see that technology anymore, and never will again

    MB-2s never seem to fetch that much money. I've seen those forks sell between $50 and $100 on ebay which isn't that much less than the whole bike would fetch. I would love to grab a pair.

    Paul components make a mount for barcon shfters that turns them into thumbshifters. Very nice, very pricey. You can find them at www.paulcomp.com

    cheers

    With that ding, not much.

    Any more 'for sale' talk and this thread gets pulled.

    That's weird, I have a '93 MB-2 that I've owned since new, too. And I put a nearly identical ding in the top tube the week after I bought it (hasn't affected the bike in the 12 years since).

    It's now my single-speed around-town kid-hauler, stylee fork and all, but it was my "real" mountain bike until last month. What a difference a decade makes.

    Cool bike.
