Correction: the 2000 UCI rule was for the hour record. I donít know the timing of the same size wheel requirement for road TTs. For this bike, though, the slope may be just because of the large frame...

The reason for assuming late 90's is that Reynolds 853 didn't come out until 95, so if that decal is legit, it's at least 95. As for the front wheel, it's possible it had a 650 front wheel, but that...

Not to mention the granny chainring and the massive pie plate. I love the stories people come up with about their bikes. But, TdF claims aside, it might still be of interest to Miyata enthusiasts.

Short answer is no. The GXP that is 24 on the drive side reduces to 22 on the non drive side whereas Hollowtech stays 24. Hereís a good chart:https://wheelsmfg.com/crankset-tech
