    Official Bridgestone Thread

    Hello all,

    Just thought I'd start a thread for Bridgestones...

    If this thread already exists somewhere on this site, my apologies.

    Here's mine!

    1988 MB1

    Can we edit the thread so eager young ladies don't expect to see white dresses?

    hard to go wrong with a Logic fork. I think they're a good compromise between the spindly 1/2" blades and the 1" Yeti and Type II forks.

    Bs mb1,2,3,5

    The '94 MB1 is my main ride, the '89 MB2 is in my Garage collection. The MB3, MB4 (no picture) and MB5 were parts donors..

    Just remembered, I've also got an '89 MB1 frame that I'm building

    Great bikes here, wish I had one. So I have to ask, is it OK to install a Ritchey lugged fork on any of the MB frames above 3? Reason I ask is cause I have a fork but no frame. All the frames I've found in my size are not 1's or 2's or even the correct year for the Ritchey fork.
    Too many bikes, and just enough time to ride them.

    Depends on the year fork and the year frame. The later 89 on frames have steeper head angles and the forks have less rake. If you want :FACTORY" geometry you should use forks/ frames from the the years that correspond. Bridgestone Bicycles You can find geometry's here.
