This is the smoothest, fastest, bike i've ever rode. It's better than bianchi, giant, trek, specialized, raleigh, jamis and more... Pure Quality,... Only one in the world i've seen online with shimano components...

funny thread. i can tell the op has a lot of experience with high-end steel.

btw, the 1988 rb-1 was 23 lbs.

No ... its a guaranteed world's finest bicycle precision mechanism. Says so right on the frame.
like panasonic, fuji and miyata, bridgestone made some great bikes. unfortunately, the op's wasn't one of them.

sheldon has the catalogues.

this has to be a prank thread.

no knowledgeable person could see this boat anchor POS as a 'quality' bike...

That bike is no where near 20 lbs. In the early 1990's, a 20 lbs bike was gee-whiz light. I have a 1996 Eddy Merckx steel bike that weighs 20 lbs. Its made of deda zero uno steel tubes, has a carbon fork, modern 11-speed components and 1600 gram set of wheels. Yeah that bike is 20++++++lbs on a good day. I'd bet closer to the low 30's.

Interesting to see some of these surface. The amount of steel on that bike would make it moderately heavy feeling.

I have a 90' Bridgestone RB1 and to this day it accelerates just as fast as my Giant Advanced SL1.
It's equipped with Suntour Superbe. 1990 Bridgstone Synergy RB1 - PaceLinebikes
