92' Bridgestone X0-1 59cm. My intentions were to go back to friction shifting and non aero brakes to build the bike the way it would suit me best. I used components from 1977' - 1992'. The15 years of technology in the mix worked out very well. I covered the bars in a grey clothe tape and finished with hemp twine. I put three coats of clear shellac to finish. The SunTour 4700 brakes had the correct reach for the 26" wheels. The wheels are original but were hand built with the Superbe sealed bearings hubs. The Nitto stem is period correct and was an option between the Ritchie Force stem. I do have the Ritchie force stem. Just to note I have all of the stock parts put away.
