    Miyata Alumatech

    Anybody have or have had one of these late-80's cans? I was perusing a catalog online and it looks pretty fast but I haven't ever seen or heard of 'em before.

    I never heard of them either. Probably means one of two things - (possibly both)

    1. Not many of them and they didn't market them.
    2. Not that special.
    The search for inner peace continues...

    1987 6500 with dressed in Shimano 105. Weird Aluminum/steel combo I think.

    The bikes are very confortable to ride. They're aren't as harsh and jarring as a Cannondale but they aren't as stiff either. Build quality is very good as would be expected from a 'Made in Japan' Miyata.

    Dont expect to be getting a superbe sprinter or a phenominal climber. What your going to get is a very nice, comfortable, smooth ridding road racing bike.
