Koga Miyata Gents Racer

My second Dutch bicycle in the racing stable. Nothing special but a lot of bang for the buck. If you find a Koga Miyata Racer with modern quality components, it will definitely have a fixed value.

As these old gems are not good enough for a lot of aluminium / carbon fibre loving bicycle knights, its used to be easy to find an affordable copy. Since the lively hipster culture identifies itself with fixed race bicycles, the used race bicycle market has changed a lot.

Features
