    Koga Miyata Prologue '89

    Hi,
    i am looking for a small bike for my girlfriend (50). I found Koga Miyata Prologue '89 with FM-3 tubing (exactly like this one: Koga Miyata Prologue Rennrad - Koga Miyata Prologue 50 cm 190 EUR).

    The price is ~200 Euro.
    Unfortunately i can't find any information/reviews about this frame and FM-3 tubing? Most discussions is about FM-1 tubing.
    Is it worth buying? Or maybe i should look for something else?

    Thanks!

    It is not an high end bike, but it is okay. Decent used, not mint condition. The price is a bit high I think. Something like 100-120 euro should be about right.

    Let me get this straight, your girlfriend is 50 (in which case send me her contact info if you should happen to break up); or this is girlfriend #50 , or the frame is 50 cm?
    Looks good to me... I wouldn't fuss about price too much given the relative scarcity of small frames, as long as there is no serious issue like a bent fork (!), it fits her, and she likes it.
