Looks like a nice Euro-commuter. Good luck getting one here.

You can get a Koga Miyata in the U.S.; similar idea.

USA dealers are located on the very bottom of the country drop down.

All of them look to be several thousand miles away. I'm sure you could get one of those here somehow, but I'm not sure it'd be worth the trouble.

How is UPS considered "trouble"?
An extra benjamin and a few days time is more than worth it if it's the bike you want.

I actually just thought they were *really* cool looking and curious that it seems Europeans know well how to put together a commuter, where American companies are well behind the curve.
