Thanks for your response. I would guestimate it to be about a 58cm. I would measure it, but it is miles away at the moment. I will measure the steerer tube, next time I am at my storage unit.carbonite said:man bro, do what you can to find a compatible fork. what size is the frame? i went through a real deal to try and get a fork threaded. it aint worth the hassle. every one i called and talked to say they dont do it, only chase or clean up existing threads. they say you have to go to a frame builder to get it done. i have a couple of forks but no miyata. you just to search around. go to a bike shop that has been around for a while and see if they have something that will work and get it painted to match perhaps.
I will keep looking for used. I am looking at new ones to though. I could get 1 inch threadless stem, the thompson 1 inch to 1 1/8th adapter, then a 1 1/8th stem too.FatTireFred said:threading ain't always easy and the tubing walls gotta be thick enough... best be is to look for used, lbs, the usual online places, maybe that dude in hungary
Miyata considers Rake and Offset to be the same. Increasing / decreasing rake should increase / decrease your wheelbase correspondingly. A longer wheelbase provides greater stability, a shorter wheelbase increases maneuvering / quick turning ability.What happens if I increase, or decrease the rake. I know it will affect the handling, but if you have a higher number does that make it more twitchy, or always wanting to turn?
