Okay, Koga brochures. The point with Koga brochures is they do not fit my scanner. They are huge, pretty impressive brochures. Always gloss black cover with (most often blue) 'Koga Miyata' and 'The quality people in cycling' on it. The brochure definately is developed with the aim to breath quality. Anyone who has ever seen one knows probably what I mean.
This 1993 brochure came in two parts. One part with the bikes and one part with specs. Most recent brochures even included a DVD.
As the Koga brochure doesn't fit my scanner, I scanned each bike seperately. Koga offers much more than only MTBs (Koga is actually way bigger in the segments Racing, Touring, Randonneur). I decided not to scan the full range, but the MTBs and a few more.

I owned the 1992 TerraLiner Carbolite. It was my first proper bike. Nowadays TerraLiner Carbolite is to me the most impressive bicycle in their current line up. Carbon everything and weighting in at under 10kgs including fenders, rack... Current TLC
