I recently rebuilt two bridgestones. One is a 1993 XO-2 that I am using as a commuter. The bars and stem are original. The wheels are built around suntour cyclone sealed hubs with a rhyno lite rim up front and an araya rm-17 in the rear. The derailleurs are shimano 105. I also used a stronglight 99 crank. I basically built the bike with whatever I had in my parts bin. The other is a 1993 RB-1 that I build up as more of a long-distance bike with a shimano 600 triple (46-36-24), sachs 7 speed freewheel (12-24), ultegra rear derailleur , suntour superbe pro sealed hubs, campy omicron rims, Royal Compe II short reach single-pivot sidepulls with shimano 105 brake levers, and avocet racing 1 saddle. I could have built the bike up with original components but I wanted to put a triple on it and used mainly used parts from the right era.
