People who friended this bike socal3rensho, knapprobert, thewegger, campystamp, per.k

reduce the stem height

nothing good can come from that much leverage at the top of the headset, its a snapped stem waiting to happen.


Thanks. Will do.

A Rose by Any Other Name...

I bought the frame in raw, unpainted condition. The seller said his research indicated it was a Koga Miyata Professional. I couldn't find any records of frames with a similar serial number code until just last week (2/10/13). It matches serial numbers from a Centurion Prestige. This code does not match other Centurion models from the 1980s. Smooth and quick.

The bike is essentially new. It was painted by Josh Aronson of Town Center Bike and Tri in El Dorado Hills, Ca. The wheels were laced by Bob Molinari of Placerville Bike Shop.
