I'm soon leaving London, and after taking this for a final spin to Lille over the past few days, I've come to the conclusion that it is just a tiny bit too small for me and so it needs to go. Would be a keeper otherwise as it rides as great as any other fancy 90's steel that I have tried AND has dreamy paint job.
See build thread
I'm primarily looking to get rid of the bike minus wheels, shifters, bottle cages and pedals, but if someone is really keen, it is possible to convince me to sell the whole thing as is (minus bottle cages and pedals). Have done less than 1000km on this build, all sunshine.
Frameset Koga Miyata Full Pro 1991 (only year it came in this paint). Same frame set as raced by the Tulip-Koga Miyata team that year (comes with number hanger). More info in Herr J's original sales thread -
Top Tube (cc): 54 cm
Seat tube (cc): 53.5 cm (cc) 55cm (ct)
Head tube: 12.5 cm
Rear spacing: 130mm
Praxis Works Alba Crankset 175mm 110BCD including BSA AND BB30 Praxis bottom brackets. Was new when I had the bike built up a couple of months ago and is still in very good condition. Comes with Superstar components Raptor Chainring 46t Narrow Wide Chainring. This has been great and have had zero dropped chains running this with a regular long cage derailleur.
Sram Apex WiFli derailleur - was new 2 months ago, has some scuffs now due to me being bad at at not scratching things. Mechanically still top notch.
Sram Rival brakes with 2 month old brake pads. Bought on LFGSS, still nice.
Thomson Elite Seatpost 26.8mm (also bought on LFGSS, nice but has a couple of marks from previous owners seat bag rack)
Salsa Road bike stem -130mm I think. Replacement for Cinelli stem that cracked. This one won't.
ITM Mantis Ergal Handlebars (Think they are 42's)
Selle Italia Sintesi TCS saddle. Very comfy, but scruffy.
£500 for the bike including wheels (Bontrager Paradigm Comp TLR, really nice light wheelset)
£300 for build minus wheels, shifters, cages and pedals.
£200 for frameset with black Tange Levin headset.
If split, will figure out prices then.
In London (Fields) until Sunday eve then gone forever.

Full bike £480
Build kit minus wheels and shifters £280
Frameset incl headset £180
Open to offers on parts. Great bike, someone must need this.
Full bike £460
Build kit £260
(these are all pretty sweet deals I feel)
Have people completely given up on riding neo-retro steel, is this just the wrong time to sell a bike, and/or have everyone spent there last money on a roundtrip ticket to Samara for Saturday?
Damn man, if this was 56x56!
I also have a kalloy setback seat post that can be included for those that need to work the fit (I'm 1.80, and I've found it to work fine, is pretty aggressive).
Let me sleep on it.
How much you want for frameset, stem and seatpost?
Sending you a PM.
Has this been taken?
Sent you a PM
Last chance if someone wants to pick this up today - £400
Second this . Bargain
What is the current asking price for Frame/forks,seatpost and wheels??...
I am flying out to Manila and someone may well want this if the price is right.
Welcome to PM
Taking this down for now. Possibly back for sale in late August/early September as framekit.
Frameset back for sale! Unfortunately someone has knicked the wheelset while I was away, but will let the frameset (including headset) go for £150 next week when I'm in London for a couple of days. Get in touch if you are interested and we'll organise pick-up on Thursday.
