In the Stand – 1991 RB-T

As the next chapter in my life seems to be organically developing there has been a few bikes passing through my work stand.  The common theme is small bikes for ladies that do not have wacked out geometry angles, more on this later (just re-read that, it is the angles on the bikes, not the ladies).  My wife is 5’3″ and in the quest for champagne on a beer budget I have managed to keep a list of the bikes from the past that can be refurbished to suit.  The latest bike in the stand is a near NOS 91 Bridgestone RB-T size 50cm, this one is for a friend:

All this one still needs is a touch-up on the wheels and it is ready to go.  That, and I may switch out the tires to some wider Pasela rubber.  unfortunately the original Avocet tires were not serviceable.  Yes, I know the garage is a mess, as always a work in progress.

On other notes, I am hoping to pull this ride off this weekend, time and heat wave conditions will tell the tale.  Either way there should be some good pictures next week

Have a fun and safe holiday weekend.  Play outside and enjoy your family!

    You riding along the coast this weekend? The temps are making me double think and most likely cancel my ride I was planning for the weekend. Be careful out there if you are embarking on a long ride, drink a TON of water.
