Miyata was and still is in some parts of the world a large bicycle manufacturer. In the 80s they wiped away the competion from the US market, untill the Yen skyrocketed in the early 90s. Miyatas were the finest off the shelf bikes you could get, together with some other Japanese manufacturers like for example Panasonic.
Miyata did also supply frames to Koga of the Netherlands.
Can you give a descrition of the paintscheme and what serial# you find under the bottom bracket shell?
Hi, thanks for the quick reply.
The bike is a plain design, the main tubing (the three pieces linked by headset, bottom bracket and seat post) are what I would call standard black carbon fibre in appearance. The rest of the frame is painted white. It has 'Team Carbon' decals on the each side of the crossbar and a Miyata logo on the bar between seatpost and bottom bracket. All this is from memory so may not be 100%.
I'll get the serial tonight and take a picture if I get the chance.
