    This came up on another site and I searched and didn't see it referenced here, so thought I would post it (apologies if it is old news) ...

    Hello Bob, Rumpfy,

    Yes, that's the site I created to keep the (Koga) Miyata story alive!

    If anyone has additional information on in particular US and Japanese Miyatas (US vs Japanese differed in paintscheme, name), please, do not hesitate to tell me.

    If anyone wants additional information, do drop a line, maybe I could help.

    Anyone in for scans of whole Koga Miyata MTB line up from the beginning up to '95? Here they come!
