Thanks for sharing. I've started looking for a high-end hybrid and Miyatas are usually high on my list.

Having spent a few months riding through Somerville, Massachusetts about thirty years after this article was written; that is an incredible opening paragraph.

Really something they had two bikes and neither one had the right HTA, wonder if the production runs were actually correct or not?
