      howdy,



      offering a fine touring bicycle.



      the wiki page for Miyata is interesting, but to speed things along i'll
      give the critical info about this particular bicycle and those that are
      interested can do some research



      i'll share just one little blurb gleaned from the Miyata wiki page
      "Miyata 1000: Touring bike with splined, triple-butted Chromo
      tubing."..."Noted bicycle authority, Sheldon Brown called the Miyata
      1000 "possibly the finest off-the-shelf touring bike available at the
      time".[8] The 1000 was marketed in the U.S. from the late 1970s and
      marketed in North America until about 1993



      frame measures 57cm square, which means both seat and top tubes measure 57cm center-to-center.



      i carefully overhauled this bike before riding it, i've put limited miles on since this bike dosn't fit me perfectly



      has lots of the original parts still faithfully serving, brakes,
      crankset, derailleurs and shifters, seatpost, front wheel and other
      little extras like the distinct and super chunky housing stop for the
      front brake housing, barrel adjusters, bb cable guide and bolts in mid
      fork braze on are distinct as original



      i replaced the headset as the original was worn out. i installed a new
      shimano un-54 bottom bracket, shimano 7 speed cassette and sram chain.
      index shifting works nicely, deore rear derailleur is still goin'
      strong. replaced the other standard wear stuff, all the cables and
      housing, brakes pads, and pretty-darn-near-new-still panaracer pasela tg
      tires(these rule).



      handlebar, stem, brake levers, saddle and pedals are just stuff that i
      like. i end up changing out all of those things every time i take over a
      bike...i'm a pro bike mechanic with years of experience in a well
      respected shop in town and the bike is dialed, dosn't need anything done
      to it other than if you choose to personalize



      no lowball offers is a given, right?, and i don't want your old bike or
      anything else in trade. sorry. new touring bikes cost more that this
      and are probably a lot less cool..



      cash only. test rides are welcome. read my ad to see if i answer your questions before calling please, and thanks for looking!
