I picked up a Miyata road bike off craigslist this week for $100. I'm hoping that with a little work I can do some light touring with it. Anyway, I've been looking around other threads, through Miyata Catalogs, and am having some trouble identifying the bike. If y'all could help me figure out what is, it's best used for, or what it's worth I'd greatly appreciate it!
Anyway, back to the bike. Initially, I assumed it was a Pro-Miyata, as it has a "pro model" sticker on the bike (pictured below) but I feel it the bike doesn't match up to the specs for a pro. Also, the frame says "high tensile 1024 butted tubing" and I'm unsure which Miyata's use this type of frame.
Here are some other specs I found on the bike:
- Sakae randnner (handlebars)
- DIA-COMPE (brakes)
- Shimano 500 (derailleur)
- Ariake 7378 (seat)
Also, the first thing you'll see when you look at the bike is the large rack on the back that it came with. Anyone have one of these?
Thanks for your help!
