    I sold the miyata in the original post because our apartment was full of bikes and I hadn't been riding it much, and I really regret it :(

    Nice! Is the LE the same frame geometry as the earlier 85-86 Cimarrons?

    Does anybody have catalog scans for all years of the Cimarron?

    I think some of the Ti Miyatas had ti forks too.

    Looks like a great bike, wish it was larger. Just curious in case I ever see another one in my size: what's the tire clearance like on this frame?

    On the bike I mentioned above, right after I got it, I switched to a comically short 50mm stem with drop bars since the top tube was so long. I had also always heard how short stems were a no-no and...

    FWIW, my Cimarron with really laid back geometry (I think it's 70/70) had a similar problem, but it was most problematic when I used the kickstand, with the bars flopping around enough to unweight it...

    This is my kind of thread!

    I bought my 85 Cimarron a few years ago as a "beater" bike, set it up with drop bars, and ended up liking it so much that it has become my go-to bike for pretty much...

    It still looks like a decent enough touring frame (shame about the fork), but it's not a Miyata 1000. It's kind of funny how any time any old touring frame loses its decals and gets a repaint, it...

    That's the earliest Gran Turismo I've seen and it looks like it's in fantastic shape. F serial number would indicate 1977, but maybe it's a 1976. This looks like it's before the Univega / Miyata...
