Tell me about your Bridgestone XO-4

I picked up one of these from CL a while back; changed to drop bars; other than that it's all stock. The gearing is crazy wide and low for the midwest. It's a 42-34-24 crankset with an 11-28 7 speed rear. I've thought about altering that but I don't know if I want to dump money into this - I might just flip it. Anyone ride one of these, and have you modified it, and how do you like it? Thanks for comments.

The 1990's era Bridgestones have become "cult" bikes (just as the catalogs have become collector's items) but not many of them actually got sold. Some models sold less than 1,000 total bikes.

So, odds are, you won't be riding down the street and see someone riding YOUR exact model of Bridgestone. All the more reason to keep the one you have, and to keep it as original as possible.
