Without looking at pictures ithe '94 will have more water bottle braze-ons, a chain hanger, pump peg and probably more eyelets for racks and fenders. I'm in no way saying an an older 6xx Miyata isnt a great bike because it is. The '94 will also have a cassette hub which, in my mind, is a must for a touring bike as they do not bend axles and it has indexed shifting with bar end levers!!!
