    Bridgestone's exit from the USA market was for the same reason as the exit by Panasonic - who also built good bikes. It had everything to do with Yen shock.

    For general-purpose commuting an older mountain bike with slick tires and drops is probably what you'd want.

    Assuming you want the fork/frame fixed, Eagle One should be able to do that for you.

    Pricing

    It will cost you some coin, though.

    Best bet here is a refund from the seller - unless you...

    Chorus ergo 8-speed seems closest to period-correct without being overly-clunky. I'd use that if this were my bike.

    (actually, if it were my bike I'd be using Dura-Ace 7400).

    Wouldn't be too sure about that "points finger" thing.

    The greater LA area has a ****-ton of heroin and meth addicts. They'll steal anything, even if nailed down.

    It'll work, but that chainline is not where it should be. The wheel's going to require a re-dish. Hopefully you won't also need to swap-out the bottom bracket spindle as well - though you very well...
