    Bridgestone Bonanza

    In the last 2 weeks I have added 3 Bridgestones to my stable, now I've gone from 1 Bridgestone to a collection! I had a 1994 MB-5 set up pretty much like a single speed XO-# that I love. Last week I found a 1986 MB-2 (straight gauge lugged chromo) that I had to buy for $60 on craigslist, unfortunately it had a mix of cheapo aftermarket components ( O.G. frame, cranks, wheels, headset only... but with a Girvin Flexstem). Later in the week I traded some junky parts for a 1988 CB-1, which was the only frame the guy had worth trading for... And finally yesterday I pulled a 1993 XO-4 OUT OF THE TRASH! It has a broken steerer tube, but is all stock and in good condition... Had to share my joy... I'll put some pics up later....

    Any Suggestions for a new fork for the XO?

    I suggest dumping all the mediocre Bridgestones you have for one well built MB-1 or Zip.

    Yeah... What I'd really like is a 90's MB-1, but you can't argue with serendipity... I'll probably hold onto one of them as a city bike, the MB-2 should be the nicest, but it's so slack in the angles

    Those bike ride soooo nice. I borrowed an mb-1 for a week back east. Very quick, stable and comfortable. I almost had one a few weeks ago but somebody nabbed it.
