Nice to read a review of a mid level bike. So many reviews are just of the top of the line bikes.

I used to have a similar Miyata, a 1988 312. Wonderful riding bike.

Yep, another good read.

I refurbished a friends 312 two summers ago. I totally agree about nice the bike was. I had to put some miles on after putting it back together and nothing about the ride was mid level. I was a good performer.

I've had my Miyata 310 since 1984. It still sees regular use.

Interesting. I wonder if the same frame steps up a model or two and that’s why it feels so racy. Apparently it is easily converted to 700c wheels.

The description of the frame as bieng triple butted cro-moly with fork and stays of manganese steel sounds the same as the more basic 110 model.
