I probably won't end up riding for more than just coffee rides,
but I do know it's one of two bikes I will most likely never sell.

Hoping my daughter grows one more inch...It'll fit her perfectly.

Great job and beautiful bike!!

I still have my Miyata 912...white with black stripes. I've had it for decades and still remember the day I brought it home.

Before this I had a Black 912! Sold it so I could buy this one! I remember mine came with 700x21mm tires, which look like pencils in comparison to what I ride now;-)
