1985 Miyata 610, 58 cm

Selling from: Cleveland, OH, 44111
Payment through PayPal f/f or add fees
Price: 450$ plus shipping. SOLD

Beautiful condition.

Cr-Mo triple butted tubing and Mangalight fork blades.
58 cm from center of crank to top of seat tube.
57 cm top tube center to center.
18 speed Suntour Arx front and rear and derailleurs with Suntour Power downtube shifters.
Sugino GP triple crank set 52/40/28 teeth. SR SP-155 pedals.
Shimano BR AT-50 cantilever brakes.
Weinmann 219 alloy wheels with 27 x 1 1/4" tires. Probably the tires need to be replace soon.
Also, it looks that it can take 700C wheels, brakes ran just fine.
The bike is clean, no rust. The paint is very nice, but there are a few small scratches. Also the bike had a kick stand, and there are light scratches there, as shown in pictures.
One bottle cage and place for another one.
There are no carriers on the bike, but I can provide for additional cost a set of two bottle cages, rear carrier and front front lowrider pannier rack, all black, all Jim Blackburn.

Excellent bike. Really, really good canti brakes. (I had the one size up big sister in gold-brown. Stripped it and refitted it as my next winter/rain city bike.) Went 27,000 miles. The final crash, one of three hard ones, was its death. That frame? Real quality. Strong. Every detail done with attention. If mine had forgone running into things, it would still be trying to catch my Mooney in the lifetime mileage race. (It'd be 49,000 miles now. The Mooney's about 52k.)

Those brakes - as good stoppers as the old Mafacs. (I think Mafac had some really good engineers. Their brakes were limited by the wire type, housing materials and pad materials. Using modern gear, as good as anything (non-disc) out there.) Those Shimanos are virtual copies, geometry-wise, of the Mafac. Much nicer to work on. Second ride on my 610 I took them off and swapped with my Mooney's Mafacs; just to get those sweet brakes on my best bike.

Edit: All 27k of those miles were on 700c wheels. Just watch that the pads don't go too low as they wear down. I do an angle up on them about mid wear. Now that they are on one of my best bikes and I'm not thinking quite as thrifty, I just change them out at that point. When I put new ones on, I set the pads nearly touching the tire knowing they will only go down from there.

Suntour ARX stuff is bombproof.

I have the same bike, same brakes. I can swap 27" and 700C wheels with just a brake adjustment. I spread the dropouts by hand. Not very difficult.
