Miyata Catalog 1991

Hello all,
I own a 1991 alumicross. on the underside of the down tube there is a single braze-on, the catalogue describes it as a Air Bottom Basement. Does anybody have any idea what that is?

Hi Jake:
Sorry I do not know what is Air Bottom Basement, probably is Bottom Bracket(sometimes the translation from Japanese to English is not quite clear).

The air bottle basement is a single threaded mount on the underside of the down tube. It is the same size and threading as a water bottle braze-on.

It was designed to mount a bracket to hold a CO2 cartridge. Hence - air bottle basement.

I have a '92 - 916 and have been looking for the bracket to hold the CO2 cartridge.

Thank you so much for this post. long back(95). I owned an Elevation 100 when i was in school & i was very fond of it. Had bought it from a student that had come here for studies. Since Miyata is not available in India i dint know what model the bike was of. Now, I do, Thanks to you.

Is there a page 16 somewhere? I want to see if it matches my quick cross.

I own the 1991 Myata Sportcross. This is by far the best bike I have eve had the pleasere of riding. I logged many miles on it before I entered the service. I still have it in decent shape just needs tubes and a good tune up... Hope to have it up and running agan soon. If you have the opportuity to buy one of these bikes in rideable condition do so I will never part with mine....its the perfect hybrid of mountain and street bike and with its lite frame and speedy gears its a perfect blend for anyone from casual to experienced bike riders...I love this bike...and all its flair!
