That is the 60cm, and if you find it to be a little big, I'd happily trade you my 57cm. 😳

my Miyata 1000 Gran Tourer

still work in progress and I am 90% done ...

I've changed a few stock items as I will be touring with this bike ...

Wheels HED Belgium Plus with a Royce rear hub and a SON28 front Dynamo hub
Saddle: Brooks Cambium C17 Carved
Dynamo Lights: Supernova E3 Triple (front and rear)
Bottle cages: (3xNitto)
Tyres: Continental GP5000 TL (tubeless) in 32mm wide
Fenders: Honjo Hammered
Rear rack: Tubus Cosmo stainless steel, front rack is Tubus Tara stainless steel (still to fit, and the photo shows the old rack)

still to sort: Orlieb pannier bags (front and rear)

I need to change the chain rings as the current are Biopace

I need to tidy the brake cables (I don't like the cables coming out of the top of the brake levers) .... any advice?

I need to buy the gadget that will charge a powerbank whilst I'm riding
I need to lower the bottle cages so that I can use my Miss Grape bikepacking frame bag

when I'm done in 2 months time, I will post better photos on this thread

My favorite is a this: bought it from the original owner. Less than 250 miles. The chain has so much oil and gunk in the chain when I bought it that everything in the vicinity of the rear triangle was perfectly preserved lmao
