Just wanted to share my new (1st) road bike. I've been looking for a bike for a few months and finally found this:
It's a 1986 Miyata 110. I picked it up for $50 (CL) from the original owner who hasn't ridden it in a few years. I think it's totally original (including the tires), and seems to be in really good shape. It fits good, shifts really nice - though I'm still getting used to the friction shifters - and is a lot of fun to ride. I understand this was the lower end of the Miyata's, but I'm not nearly serious enough to care at this point. Just wanted to share; I've been stalking this site recently and thought I'd finally add something to it.
