    Couldn't post in one miyata thread without posting in the other.
    ------------------------

    Just picked up this 1981(?) miyata pro. Came rolling on a pair of DuraAce AX hubbed tubulars with the OEM wheels in tow. Original bottle, original pump. Crazy retro computer.

    Anyone know where I can find hoods for the AGC levers? It's a very nice ride, even if I look like a circus bear riding it. It's a 50cm frame and I'm about 6'.















    Still unclear what I'll do with it, but the price was too good to pass up.

    Too bad we are on opposite ends of the country... I have a nice Miyata 1200 that's too big for me... It's about a 56 or 57cm I think.

    That's awesome. If you don't mind me asking, how much did it cost to get the couplers added + repaint?

    the couplers were a shop deal, but still around 400
    (bike only set me back 65 or 100 I forget which, it was a pawn shop find)
    The paint, not sure yet, the good folks at SW frame sent it to me no invoice, the fedex man showed at the door yesterday. It was very unexpected delivery, I haven't even paid yet, I expect paint to be around 350+ single color, pearl (tried to match late 90's Bianchi celeste), red lined lugs, and stickers.

    Have posted this elsewhere, but I don't think to this thread yet, and in either case, she has some upgrades.



    Pretty much all stock from 1990 (I think). What a beauty and such a nice, smooth, responsive ride.

    Switched out the Sante stuff with tricolor. Rode it for a little while and then sold it.

    Here's a quick phone shot of my Miyata 414 from this weekend's ride. I know the seatpost is a bit high, but it's within the min. insertion point.

    Miyata QuickCross. I swapped out the original flat bar and stem(VERY heavy), changed the steel bipace chainrings out for larger and lighter alloy ones. the original shimano plastic cantis were cracked so I swapped those out for some tecktro 720's. and I really wanted to try the Retroshift system but could not bring myself to pay as much as they wanted so I built my own. I've only put a couple of miles on it to test the fit and I still need bartape and possibly a stem with more rise. only miles will tell. the ride feels quick. with easy acceleration.

    1 twelve

    The 112. bottom end or not, it's pretty nice. I'm a fan now.


    1988 Miyata 112

    parallel 72 head & seat tubes, just a touch over 40" wheelbase.
    I put some 700c wheels instead of the 27" and replaced the brakes with a 600 front and a centerpull aft - think I'll put another centerpull on the front soon.

    Rode it about 6-7 miles today.

    I managed it to get hands on a Koga-Miyata RidgeRunner from the 1988 modelyear



    The bike is 99% original. Including the Miyata by Panaracer tyres and these Suntour grips >>



    This is an all XT bicycle.

    Very sweet

    On to the next picture >>



    The top end Hardtlite FM-1 triple butted Spiral Spline tubeset from Miyata's own tubing mill.

    "RidgeRunner" The stem and bars are from Nitto. The XT headset is the issue with rubber housing >>



    I realize I am very privilaged position with this bike. In 1988 mountainbikes didn't sell like hot cakes in Holland, so it is rare as a hen's teeth. in 1990 Greg Herbold piloted his bike to the downhill world title. That later RidgeRunner has shorter stays and cantilever brakes.

    I swear every high end pre-suspension late eighties mountain bike had that same fork! There's one on my 88 High Sierra, and one on my 88 Cannondale M1000. It's like the late 80's equivalent to the mid 70's BMX forged Ashtabula fork.,,,,BD

    Nice Miyata btw. Seriously nice Miyata!!
    The one good thing about black cork wrap is that it's better than nothing.

    a crappy phone pic of the Miyata Elevation 2000 in the middle of a 53 mile mixed terrain race in the woods above Monte Rio, Ca. My race may not have gone as well as hoped for, but the bike held up. I love the mixed terrain idea, but not dirt descents on 700's while in an "aggressive roadie" position. So I found the Schwalbe CX Pro 26 X 1.35 tire and really like the results, traction and smooth rolling. This bike will see a lot more of this.

    Wild frame E12k, though I love the color designation of my '93 - Fatal Black.

    Thx. I own the frame since new. Like your Elevation 2,000 the front triangle has aluminium tubing and the tail is Miyata Hardtlite FM-1 steel. Investment cast aluminium lugs, Aluminum Pressurized Adhesive (APA) bonding, some brazing, a couple rivits and a single bolt holds everything together. The original fork is a nice Hardtlite FM-1 unicrown.

    This is my ValleyRunner in 1995 >>



    Brief component spec in 1995:
    XTR/XT/Campagnolo Centaur mix
    cut Sunn NK Trial bars
    4130 stem
    Concor, quirky woodprint on leather top
    Footwork boosters
    Sun CR18 rims, blue
    Panaracers, blue

    A very pragmatic build with focus on durability. Hard core! I fitted the aluminium Miyata FatMax fork because I assumed it would give me additional steering precission. Many of the parts came from left over stock already back in the day. For example I remember I paid 50 guilders for the Centaur brakes that were acquired from a bankrupt distributor. The frame itself was NOS too. Koga's buying policy wasn't very efficient back in he early 90s.

    On the beach, circa 1997 >>
