General Discussion / Thorn Vs. Koga
« on: March 10, 2007, 11:16:28 am »
My wife and I have close to 5000 miles in on our Koga/Miyata World
Travellers. We are very pleased with ours. We purchased ours from
Commuter Cycles in Santa Barbara. The best kept secret with these
bikes is the amazing balance of the frame geometry. The bike tracks
like no other that I've ridden. Google Tilmann Waldthaler, he's got over
18,000 going around the world on his WT.

   I understand Koga will overnight you a replacement frame anywhere
in the world if you have a warranty issue but I must add I haven't seen
that in riding. Besides the frame you have Shimano Xt drive train
components that are a no brainer.
   IMHO for a straight out of the box expedition class touring bike
nothing compares. The next level is custom frame, Rohloff, disc and
twice as much money.
   If you are ever in SoCal look us up and will take you for a spin.
Good Luck, James

That sounds like a good idea . We're riding a recumbent tandem trike
and being so low to the road we are afraid we'll spray each other
instead of Fido.
Thanks, James Winner
