FS: Koga Miyata Globe traveler - lower gear ratio. like new
« on: February 11, 2012, 05:51:59 pm »
I am selling my 4 year old Koga Miyata Globe traveler- size 54 cm.   I am 5'10 and it fits me pretty well.    It only has a couple hundred miles on it.  I bought it with a transamerica tour in mind, but alas I fell in love got married, and just had a child so I only got to do a few of my warm up trips around Europe and I think supported only tours are in my future  :-\  I have loaded it down with supplies and gone for 3-4 days several times and it rides fully loaded like nothing else.
 
I modified it from the stock model it came with by changing to XT front derailer and Deore LX Dual control shifters/brake levers  A shimano 105 rear derailer.  I dont remember the exact cassette I put on it, but basically when I changed everything out I switched the gearing to a good low Mountain biking gear ratio.  I added a Carbon fiber riser bar (it may be too wide for many people) and Ergon GC3 touring grips.  The front rack is not shown in the picture, but I do have it.    The only thing missing that some might wish was there is the front fender.  I took it off, and it got bent in my move by the movers.

These sell retail for around $3000k prior to the modficiations made that make it better for the tough climbs in the mountains.  I will part with it for $2000 obo

I also have a set of yellow ortlieb pannier bags that are in perfect condition, along with the backpack adapter.  I will sell these as well for $290
