I have one, it is a nice ride with SunTour Cyclone Derailleurs, Ukai 700c rims. I added Campagnolo track pedals & a Pivo Randonneur bar. Like MiamiJim said, Tell us what you want to know.

I would like to know anything that you can tell me about it. I just purchased one on Ebay. All that I know is that it looks really nice and the price was right. The cycling god Sheldon Brown has a little information on Miyata in general, not specific to the Seven Ten though. They appear to be good bikes but I would like more informed feedback, for example from people who actually own one, have owned one, or have ridden them.

Thanks for replying.

Ok, here it is. Miyata originaly started out as a gun company. A gentleman approached Mr. Miyata about building him a bike. Over the years they have produced bicycles, cars, motorcycles, and what they are most known for, fire supression equiptment.

Greg Herbold, Downhill Mtn. bike world Champion won on a Miyata. They have fielded teams in the Tour de France and simply make the best, highest quality, most durable Japanese bikes out there. Frames are painted with 7-layers of primer and clear coat.

They pulled out of the American market when the Yen took a turn in the late eighties early nineties.

search for Koga-Miyata on the 'net.....

Oh yea, I have a picture of myself with Mr. Miyata when he visited the dealership I worked at.

Miyata's are wel built bikes. I rode their pro road bike in the 80's into the early 90's with no problems. Wish I never got rid of it.

Hey thanks for the info. For a second there I thought you were pulling my leg.

You are correct-o-mundo about Miami sucking for riding. I lived in Miami, er, Miami Lakes, about 11 years ago and driving, let alone riding in Miami, is a crap shoot.

Thanks again.
