    Ditch the sus, fork and put a rigid fork on it. I had a Cypress for a year with rigid fork and used it as a commuter bike with drop bars, and it worked very well. Always thought it would have made a...

    The Fuji has27" wheels, Miyata 700c. Not a good way to change wheels to compare the two by switching out the wheels. If I had a way to get pics of the fender issue I would.

    I guess big guys like me can make frames behave outside of their design aspects. The Fuji tubing is flexy. I believe it is Ishiwata, and is quad-butted. Likely .9 on the ends, but the ends may be...

    I will not go into great detail about frame material, braze-ons and all that stuff. I am...

    Ditch the stem, drifters and saddle. Go with the NITTO of choice that puts the body in a good spot, Brooks Pro, and bar end shifters that work, even if the index stops working.

    Sella Italia Turbomatic (long out of production), or Brooks Professional. I'd like to try a carbon saddle, however that is a lot of mula to experiment with.

    This bike has an odd history, and I have known it since new in 85. Hopefully you find it. Been searching for the original wheels, but have come up short. The bike is a real beauty, can't wait to hit...

    Miyata 1000 coming together

    I have given up on finding a front deer derail eur from a local source so have decided to complete the build using a front Mountech. The fit is spot on and all that is needed are tires. 8 speed Sachs...

    [yep, that's the one! I got lucky and bought it from the Miyata warranty center before they closed it down in the US. It was changed over to a cruiser with beach bars from Don Pierce at Detroit...

    I had the hots for one of those black ones at the time. One of the most underrated mtb of that era. Very easy to ride and very stout construction. There is a Koga Miyata Caboliite in the garage ...

    +1 again. No way would I pay 200 bucks for a "professional" fit. An experienced cyclist can do it without the bling tools and fancy vernacular of salesmanship. I have used Fit Kit since 1985, and it...

    In 2012 I got a Habanero road frame and put my 1986 Campy parts on it. The bike has over 7500 miles on it, and every time I ride the thing, which is often, it feels like a new bike. It absolutely...

    We sold quite a few of the Tri A's. The bikes were nicely done, as typical of Nishiki's nicer models, but had to compete in a tough market. Nishiki was distributed by West Coast Cycles, I think....
