i am looking for a touring bike (or frame) and have been scoping the streets for some nice ones. one bike which caught my eye was the Miyata "Adventure" . It seems similar to to the 610 or 1000 US models - it has contrast headtube, canti brakes, and vertical dropouts, but it appears to be the Euro version - i live in Berlin BTW. anyone have information about the european touring models from miyata? a google search turned up nothing except the newer "adventure" touring models, which are not what i am looking for.
i'll look for more pictures later, but for now here is one of the top tube decal.
