Koga Miyata Commuter Bikes - big sale

Great deals here ... looks like they're selling at cost.

They had all models in April. I guess they sold out. They are no longer carrying the line.

Send them an e-mail. They may be able to dig one up. These guys are "zero" sales pressure... a pleasure to deal with.

I'm just bustin' ya. I already bought a couple Inter 8 commuters. I saw the Lite Ace when shopping, and bailed right away when I saw the price. They weren't available then anyway.

I'd simply like to see these types of commuters become more popular in the states. Either the fact they aren't readily available, or there's no market for them, keeps them scarce. Pitty...

They are all gone! The bank came in and took about 60 bikes. Apparently, there was a bank note covering the purchase and the weak sales forced a repo.

I'm trying to find out where the bank auction will be held. The LBS doesn't know. The LBS did say they might go for $9000 - $11000 ($150-$180 each!).
