I have a 1990 Miyata 1000 LT- I'm using the stock chainrings on my bike- but mounted them to XT M730 cranks with an XTR M900 front derailleur. I don't notice a whole lot of difference between the M900 and the M650 FD- mounted all standard.

The standard rings are half step and granny and not pinned or ramped.

I did have a problem with a 7803 Dura Ace triple FD- where the inner cage would bump into the middle chainring before it could move the chain to the outer ring.

Pretty much ANY other FD worked better than that triple FD.

i think i can understand how you'd confused things as i did comment on another thread how sexy that moto' is

anyhow, thanks for the time and efforts. i'm re-re-reconsidering a half step on my triple cross with the DX derailleur. the wide range 7spd has some pretty big jumps i'm still not in love with

Last comment on tire widths

Yesterday I proved my point on tire widths.
Took a ride north of the city on my Marinoni Touring bike and proved my point on tire widths taking more energy to ride due to wider tires.
When I mentioned this before, I stated that it was the laws of physics. I think Bill Nye the Science Guy was right. Society's pendulum is in science denial.
I forgot to mention my 60 years of cycling experience.
I do not care if someone rides a wider tire, I mean, each tire has its use.
If you're going cross country, touring, and mountain biking, yep, you need one.
My touring bike tires was pumped up more than my Miyata and old Cannondale T700 and still had to peddle harder.
Mind you, having all that pressure, I felt every stone on the back roads.
Funny, when I got my touring bike in 2004, a lot of people laughed at me and told me to get a mountain bike due to the wider tires. I was and still use 28 mm due to the poor roads.
The space ships that pass me on the paved roads have either 23 or 25 mm again, it's their choice and not a comment about the rider.
Anyways, I had a harder workout on the touring bike (Columbus SP tubing) and is 9 lbs heavier than my own old space ship.
I do have a friend who rides a 40 mm and good for him, he rides all kinds of terrain and he's a lot younger but good for him..
Happy Trails everyone!

I tried to explain the wider the tire, the increased road resistance. The young man told me that it 努as my opinion. Not opinion but physics.
He started adding up the cost to update the upgrades and I advised him to get a 僧odern bike.
Modern isn稚 necessarily better.
Anyways good talking to you all.
Happy Trails.

hose This would be a great place to post pix of that beautiful Miyata 1000LT. That thing is kind of OK. I guess.

Finally back in the 1000 club!

I sold a too small for me 60cm 1000 in 2015 and have been waiting to find a 63cm frame since then. I had the honor today of buying this 1985 1000 from the original owner. He had toured a lot with it, converting it to upright bars as he aged. I will be replacing the bars with 46cm Noodles and adding a Brooks saddle, otherwise good to go. Included is a second bottle cage, and the original fenders and front rack.

Here's my 1000LT with upgraded parts, including some interesting Edco parts (cranks, hubs, headset). Unfortunately, I think the bike is a little small for me

Brought home 1000 #2 today

In the course of the past four months, I have managed to bring home two 63cm 1000痴. The 85 has been to the shop for a total overhaul and will be getting racks and fenders as soon as the last rack arrives. The burgundy 81 I just brought home today, needs a lot of cleaning and lubing, then bar ends, tape, a Brooks, and the original front rack from the 85!

😂 A long limbed 62. The tall stem gives a little more upright stance for riding distance.

There happens to be a local guy with an $800 1000lt who has had the bike listed now a couple of times over the last year and a half with no movement. I thought about offering him what I see those same bikes sell for in the "Are you looking for one of these thread?".

For the kind of coin he's asking I can obtain nearly two Rocky Mountain Sherpa 30.

Do it respectfully, maybe show recent auctions/sales that show actual 壮old prices, rather than eBay asking prices.

Hi GB, yeah I'd kidd glove him. He needs to know also that this is Winnipeg, not Toronto too. I'd refer him to non-auction postings on Facebook etc. I recall a fellow on BF within the last 6 months who had one for about $250 or so. It was a bike coop rescue and he was passing it along. I would probably like the 1000 but who knows. Truth be told, I'd like to try a 90's high end Hybrid or a newer (2005+) touring bike (like the Sherpa mentioned).

Stem I figured, saddle just looks very high for how tall the frame already is. But 6'2" with long legs makes sense haha.

So
tl;dr: for the second time in my life I bought a 19.5 Miyata 1000 frameset. Last time, a couple of years ago, it was a 1982 model; this time it痴 my absolute favorite model-year, 1983. I hope this time I get to actually built it up.




See, my issue is that I love the output of the Miyata & Univega brands (same factory) from 1981 to 1986, especially their touring bikes. I致e owned, IIRC, 4 Univega Specialissimas, 3 Univega Gran Turismo, 2 Miyata 610s and 2 Miyata 1000s. I love them.
But they always made frames in either 19.5/50cm or 21/54cm. Never anything in between (in their touring line, anyway). And, somehow, I知 convinced I知 right between those sizes. I致e tried both extensively (about half of the bikes mentioned above were 19.5, the other half 21). I can make either work, but I lean towards the larger. When I ride my 1986 Schwinn Voyageur, which is in between, just a tad smaller than the 21 Miyatas, I feel immediately at home.
For what it痴 worth, I知 5 6 1/2 with rather short legs and longer torso. If someone could convince me that the 19.5 is indeed the size for me, I壇 be grateful! Alternatively, if you have a 1983 21 that you want to swap for a 19.5, let me know!
