Bridgestone MB-2 Runs well! - $250


Selling my MB2, bought new back in the neolithic era

It's probably a great candidate to convert to X...but rides fine as is with a couple of glitches. The original SunTour is not quite right and one rim is a bit wonked. But I ride it along with others in the herd, routinely and commuted with it before parking it about 2 yrs ago.

Its red and white and all original except one rim and grips. No frame issues at all. Blackburn aluminum rack is on it but will take that off

I forget the size but I have a 32" pants inseam and its a perfect fit (57?)

Looks like we are gonna need to add a whole "Knee Cycling" sub-forum. I had no idea this sport even existed.

I can't imagine a practical use for one. Crawling on one's belly would be faster, I would think. Would I do my shopping at the supermarket on one?

My brother in law broke his foot - had to use one for a few months to keep the weight off. Crutches too but he needed to keep it semi-elevated most times so a knee-scooter came into play. Practical yes. Hilarious - also yes.

It doesn't sit that low when in use...unless you're a slug.

It's so long and low in the front, it looks like a time trial funny bike. The head tubes on those Trek Singletracks are almost superfluous.

Can anyone tell me what story this head tube badge is trying to tell? Looks like a guy with a funny hat, heavy boots, and a club, who's fixin' to go out and kick some lion butt. Some Peugeot lion butt, to be more precise, two of them.

That's Avus with his bat, of course. No clue, interested in hearing on this.
