The Bridgestone MB5 is a great mid-level bicycle. If you are not familiar with Bridgestone bicycles reputation then go ask people who know bikes about them. I bought my 18 Bridgestone in 1991 or 1992 from the Missing Link Bicycle Cooperative in Berkeley California. I am only selling it because Im moving to New York to look after family. Mechanically, the bike rides great. I had a tune-up done last year by the Bicycle Repair Collective located in Portland. The original seat was replaced last year with an E GEL SERFAS and it is comfortable! I ride using smooth street tires and have held onto the original mountain bike studded tires. You can see pics of my bike here: Bridgestone MB5 *All Steel Frame* with Accessories & Gear Im offering you (if you want them) all my bike accessories and gear. Youll be getting a rear seat bag that attaches to and on top of the rear bike rack along with two larger side storage panniers, a JoeBlow floor standing air pump (purchased last year) with tire pressure gauge reader, an OnGuard U-Lock, a 6 coil cable and lock, the two original mountain bike tires that are still in very good condition in addition to the pair of street riding tires mounted on the bike, a very compressive quality bicycle tool tune-up kit, lube, patches, etc., a Giro medium size helmet, and there is also a bicycle light in the box though Im not sure how well it works. I live in SE Portland near 60th Avenue and Duke. You will need a current Oregon or Washington State Drivers License (for ID purposes) to try out my bike. $200 or best cash offer. Come on by and give it a ride.
