    When it comes to bikes I'm a japanophile. My daily rider is an '84 Miyata Sixten

      Miyatas always have a special place in my heart. Had a Miyata 721a when I first came back to California from college and was getting into riding bikes. Always lusted after the 610/1000 series and if I ever end up with the dream stable/unlimited space, these would definitely be in the mix.

      I commuted on one of those exact bikes all through college. My parents bought matching Miyata six-tens brand new in 1984, and when i moved out in 2006 it was one of the beater bikes in my garage. now it's moved on to be my dad's friend's winter commuter - over thirty years of near daily use!

      Ditto. My everyday / work / pub / bar bike is a Miyata One-Ten. I've tried to keep all the parts original, or at least, legit japanese Vintage, which is an expensive exercise if you live on the other side of the world in Australia.
