A 1985 Miyata 310

The Miyata 310 is a "semi-pro" road bicycle that was manufactured by Miyata until 1986. It was replaced by the Miyata 312 for the 1987 model year.

Components[edit]

The components used on the 310 varied throughout its several years of production, but certain elements were consistent through.

  • Chromoly tubing was used for the frame. In early years, straight-gauge tubing was used,[1] but this was changed to double-butted tubing for the 1982 model year.[2] Starting in 1985, and lasting the rest of the production run, triple-butted tubing was used.[3]
  • Early models use straight-gauge, hi-tensile steel forks. These were replaced with "Mangalight" manganese-alloy forks in later years.
  • Most components, including the brakes, shifters, and derailleurs, were sourced from Shimano. The gruppo used change year-to-year, but later models used many Shimano 105 components.
  • Certain components, including cranks and stems, were first-party branded.
