i dont know if this has been done in here - if it has, my apologies - but anyways, i'll start.
i scooped this miyata for my wife last fall of CL and just finally got around to cleaning it up/changing a few things. its all original, the exage 300LX drivetrain has barely any wear. i question if the bike was ever really used.
i rooted through the parts bins and switched out the horrible saddle for a soma okami, the plastic exage cantis for some alivios, grubby looking grips for some ourys and i bought some 35c michelin pilot citys.
dont mind the pedals, i knew she would want some flats and i had a set of rootbeer colored ones that i thought would look ok but my 4 year old son insisted we put purple ones on because 'mommy likes purple'....
