I just unwrapped my Miyata Century frame that I picked up from the post office today after work. It has been in storage since it left the factory, mint condition, a very nice frame.

Mine has 1990 XT, Trimble ROO bar/stem combo, Switchblades, XT post, black Ritchey Vantage rims - I think that are the original specs

...but something very 'pimp' would be Cool too 8)

Looking forward to what the result will be

very bling!! Unusual place for a serial number.

Not sure the M900 grey would look as good as XT black tbh. Though there are other components around...... :D

How do you get away with so much washing around?
I get moaned at for getting undressed at night!!! :evil:

We are currently only living in one of our two rooms in our apartment so it is a bit messy at the moment.

I have U-brake mount on the rear I found out now and I dont want to mix XTR with a black XT U-brake. If and when I build it I would probably go for XT I think.
