    As far as Miyata goes, any thread, old or new, is welcomed! The 312 I rode that was teal with white head tube had 3 thin rings around the upper part of the seat tube. Each ring had its own color, and...

    I see no advantage to vertical dropouts. I do see an advantage to horizontal dropouts such as realigning a bent wheel so it doesn't rub the frame, and pulling the wheel back away from the fender stop...

    I remember reading that article when it first came out. Since then, I knew that was the bike of all bikes to have in a collection. Regrettably, it will never be so.

    Not real. Drop outs look to be stamped, and the ends of the seat stays are lower range. I don't recall a spline frame using cheap drop outs and seat stay ends like that. Head "lugs" are wrong, too....

    Never raced track, only road. The Fit Kit did nothing other than agree with the way I had set the bike up originally, and I was inexperienced, but knew what my body needed! An experienced rider can...

    The first thing my racing coach did was look at me on the bike and do a Fit Kit fitting. It has been an evolution from that point on. He told me, as well as the guys at Fit Kit then, that this is a...

    Sure am happy that others see things as I do. I sold fits to sell stuff. That was the goal, straight from the horses mouths at SBC. You know what, it worked! Gotta love disposable income.

    This is my favorite topic to have a provocative point of view that runs against the tide of modern wisdom and discovery. Having been involved in fitting from Fit Kit in the 80's to BG Fit and Guru's...

    Silca vs. SKS

    In 1986 I bought a Silca floor pump and have been using ever since. I have put 2 leathers in it, and 2 grommets for the pump head. The pump, even when the leathers were worn out, would still get to...

    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...
