    Koga Miyata RidgeRunner 1990

    Very cool frame! I've never one before. That lower plate frame gusset is a nice detail. In some ways it reminds me of my 1991 Rocky Mountain Cirrus as it's also an elevated raw aluminum frame. What's the plan for the build?

    Re: I just went through the fork mix and match exercise with my '90 Blizzard built. (see post) and my bike also has a 100mm head tube. You need about 130mm minimum. I'm liking your build so far. The steel vertex is a rare one for sure. Great colour too. The high mounted brazed seat stays...
