Picked this up today. I have seen this color scheme before, and never cared for it. But this bike cleaned up so nice. Shimano 105 components.

Don't forget Miyata!

My 1400A, bonded frame. Light, agile, with a steely-like ride -

Interesting nobody replaced the rims on their bikes. Anyway what size tires, and tubes fit these matrix rims? And does anybody have some peddles laying around?
Thanks.
