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.
Yes, they will. If they don't stock it, they will make a new run.
The later is a frame for the Japanese market?
Nice Turbo seat btw
It is not an high end bike, but it is okay. Decent used, not mint condition. The price is a bit high I think. Something like 100-120 euro should be about right.
(Koga) Miyata. Road and mountain. Lugged construction with aluminum lugs.
I meant actual team frames, frames that ones belonged to the PDM team. They had external routing and modified shell so the mechanic could replace a cable in a split second.
The PDM team frames I have seen had routing along the toptube (instead of internal) and cut outs in the Cinelli spoiler shell. To make it easier to replace cables.
I will probably arrive on wednessday. I hope to participate in as much as possible activities.
Lenton, the pinning was common for the Champion Mondial.
Nice Duell, RIH and Joco :)
Dutchie020, I think you need a stepped ferule for your rear mech outer. Welcome btw :)
The KNWU Batavus is probably from 1995. The serial should confirm. The bottom bracket is most likely Sachs New Success, the shell Cinelli's spoiler model.
This black 'Tour Speciaal' frame shows the squarish brake bridge >>> brake bridge under this link (pic 6)
Very nice frame you have there :)
Batavus has an history with Shimano from early/mid 70s on. It was the common spec also for the team bikes (DA). I think it has much to do with that Koga trading started as distributor initially. Koga...
If the Jubile looks trashed I do think you made the right choice. For the 200 extra the Jubile should have been in at least as good shape with similar spec.
The Professional is a very fine frame....
What specs does the Jubile have? Shape?
I think you could buy Kuwahara in UK. Koga-Miyata was available, but Benelux and Germany were the most important markets for the Dutch/Japanese partnership. I have posted many Koga-Miyatas on...
The Elevation 10,000 would make a nice Herbold replica, AndreasVH. Pretty rare frame.
Years ago I bought an old stock of AC boosters in multiple colors and a DH crankset with single machined ring. All very nice stuff. I remember seeing the boosters in the German BIKE magazin in the...
The SkyExpension is the Euro equivilent of the Miyata Elevation 12,000

Close up pics, but you don't see much, as the brakes sit hidden behind the burly boosters.
Grafton cantis, AC boosters
Sorry :innocent: Yes, I do ride it. I don't ride it like Herbold used to do with his bikes, but it sees some cyclepath on Sundays. For the vintage downhill experience I have a Verlicchi.
