Okay. The frame details:
They're not easy to identify, but this are Campagnolo 1010 drop outs. The drillings are for weight saving purposes, but more quirky is the back side treatment of the drop...
As a (Koga) Miyata afficionado I have been interviewed by a mag. Also pics were taken. This is one of them:
(Koga) Miyata ensemble....
Looks like in very good shape. Isn't the stem a bit much outward or is it a special stem?
The Simon looks elegant and refined, this Zieleman I finished yesterday looks 'bling':
Thanks. I suppose Arie Simon built it, but Klaas Kwantes is also a possibility.
I've cycled to the shop on my PEKA. The shop is still a bike shop, but no frame building there anymore. From the Zaandam visit:
Finished my Simon. I bought the bike from a girl in Amsterdam about 5 years ago. Back home I disassembled the bike and over the years I cleaned everything and made it shine. Most is original, as how...
The AB was introduced later (around 80) as economical alternative for the AA (since early 70s). The AA has a Roto or Cinelli shell and a nicer crown. I think that is pretty much it. Tubing is same.
That bike in the 1992 catalog is a totally new generation. Lighter, more slooping top tube, monostay etc. Your frame is more like this 1991 TerraRunner Carbolite, apart from that the later is...
Sounds like a 1993 SkyRunner Carbolite. Very nice.
Very nice. Looks like a model for the Scandanavian market. It has toptube routing and a couple other details that puts it later than the 1990 Century. Probably 1991, as in 1992 there arrived a...
Sounds like an early Elevation 10,000. No idea what they are worth in the US, but it is a pretty rare frame and you could make a Greg Herbold replica with it.

Very nice find, Maarten. Great write up.
The camera wasn't able to catch the neon colours accurately in sunny daylight. Live the colours are slightly...
Is there a tubing decal? What ends and dropouts?
It is an etry level road bike model. You can find it in the catalogs on the Koga website.
I don't know a full set for an Elevation 8,000 :(
Very nice, Concordino. Did you polish the ti?
Gas prices are dropping, but 700km in a PRV engine Volvo is still pretty expensive... I am afraid I am not going.
Forum member Zieleman once had an interesting story on an old bottle simply dissolving in his hands when filled with water. Can't be good.
Very nice examples, pullup.
Awesome. I have weak spot for bonded mountainbikes. My 1st proper bike was bonded and they look distinctive, so that is probably why. Unfortunately never encountered the right Litage on the Dutch 2nd...
I have their V-brake issue. I like them. Easy to set up and great stopping power. And very light because of the ti hardware. I think they predate the Shimano's by a little, but I am not sure.
