I'm another newbie from Seattle (Tukwila actually)
Hey...nice place ya got here! Any older Miyata owners? (of course I meant the bike)
...Let me add a little about myself...I was born in Boston in 1949. We lived in Cambridge, Watertown, and finally Brookline, and while I was in High School there, I worked for Western Union as a telegram delivery boy.... I rode a bicycle all over the place, from Brookline, to Cleveland Circle, Boston Back Bay, Newton Highlands...all with a three speed Phillips. I doubt I could do that now. But I recently bought my used Miyata 615GT to commute to and from work here in Seattle, a flat 10 mile round trip, and I'm enjoying it...except for the traffic...scares the crap out of me.
I would enjoy hearing from anyone else that commutes, knows anything about Miyata, or who just wants to say howdy. Thanks...
