SOLD: 1992 Bridgestone XO-3

UPDATE 29 October 2014: This bike has been SOLD.

Yes, yes, the thinning of the herd continues, and I’ve decided to part with my Bridgestone XO-3. I’ve had it for a year and a half, have had fun with it, done a lot with/to it, but it’s time to move on, and sell it while it’s still in a “really good” state. This bike is ready for all-season commuting, touring, and adventuring.

Here are the pertinent deets:

  • 1992 Bridgestone XO-3
  • Size: 57 cm
  • Cro-moly fork/main triangle, hi-ten stays
  • 700C wheels. Front is a newish Quality Wheels one, rear a custom built one on a CR-18 rim
  • Schwalbe Little Big Ben 700x40C tires in brown! Bought early in summer. Good stout tires with plenty of life. Haven’t flatted yet.
  • Overhauled and updated drivetrain! Wide range double in front (46-26) with a seven-speed (13-34) in rear. New Shimano Acera rear derailleur. Gives you a gear range from about a 97 inch high to a 21 inch low. Good for climbing!
  • Nitto Mustache handlebars with Nitto Dirt Drop Stem.
  • New-ish Shimano Deore linear-pull brakes.
  • Avocet Touring II leather saddle.
  • SKS fenders.
  • And the biggie: full dynamo lighting! An AXA HR bottle dynamo powering a B+M headlamp and taillamp. Never worry about batteries again!

  1. Hey Shawn,

    That XO-3 is a beauty, and I wish it was a 54cm. I’d swoop it up in a second. However, I could find a good home for that dynamo setup if you were interested in parting it out.
