    old(?) Miele raod bike

    Hey I'm rather new to cycling and this forum, and I've been riding this bike for the past few years. My neighbour gave me this bike when my previous one (a Miyata a number of years old) was hit by a car (although I did a number on his hood ). I love this bike for riding along the paths and parks (I have a hybrid for commuting, but still often commute on this too), and was wondering if anyone knew what model or approximate year it may be? Thanks!

    If it doesn't say the model on the top tube it would be very hard to identify. Our resident expert is currently on hiatus (sp?)... You can get the approximate year by looking at the back of the cranks and derailleurs for 2 letter date codes, then use this site: http://www.vintage-trek.com/component_dates.htm to determine the year. That will get you in the ball park. The only thing I can tell you was that Miele was Toronto based and most of the frame were built elsewhere and I cna never remember by who.

    Thanks for the help, I checked the site, and according to the cranks the bike is from '82. Model wise I have no idea, I think the the frame has been repainted/painted over. Toronto based? I thought the company was based in St. Georges Quebec?

    My response would have been something along the lines of: "Does your bike have computer controlled suspension? Then shut your piehole, this baby is from the future!"

    Early models (pre90's) were made in Toronto. The comany is now bought by the Que company. TMar will help out on this when he sees this.

    I used to have an opalescent white '87 Miele bought new. I loved that bike. I think I'm going to cry. They used to have a sweet European style about them in fact I thought it was Italian (I was a stupid kid). Now they look like something you'd buy at Canadian Tire.
