I have that rack on my 2014 Long Haul Trucker.

Very tight clearance between the bottom outside of the cantilever brake and the upper cross bar. There's also an issue with the top platform and clearance between it and the tire/fender being a very tight fit. Took a bit of fiddling to get the planets all in alignment on this one.

Mine isn't the 'tall boy' version of this rack, which was introduced after I got this one. I suspect the tall boy's higher 'head room' would have allowed for mounting the rack a bit farther below the cantilevers. Jandd has measurements for both racks on their website.

There's been some threads on these issues in the touring section here.

I believe there may be dimensional differences between modern and vintage cantilever breaks and posts, so these may or may not be issues for your Miyata 1000.
