Let me qualify my following statement by saying that I do NOT represent Miyata,
as some peple seem to think. Now for the good news: Miyata saddles have been
designed to eliminate all these problems, are very comfortable and sturdy and
make it easier to perform certain skills.

So say goodby to your thigh bruises etc. and try a Miyata saddle. Yes, I can
hear you saying, how do I get hold of one. The answer is that you can order from
Miyata directly, or help out by becoming or finding an agent. I am reposting
Miyata’s announcement below for those interested.

Hi All,

I have had countless requests about how to purchase Miyata unicycles in the US,
which is considered the best in the world by champion-class riders. Before I go
on let me make it clear that I do not work for Miyata nor represent them
directly. I am doing this because I know there is strong demand for Miyata
unicycles and Miyata has no way of reaching the masses of unicyclists. The
president of Miyata and the exports manager have asked me for my cooperation.

Miyata would like to renew activities in the US market through a reliable agent
who is able to reach the unicycling market. The agent should be in a position to
pay in advance by letter of credit (FOB Japan for FCL shipment). Shipment will
be made within 60 after receipt of payment.

I cannot announce the wholesale prices here, which is not public information.
But the prices for agents are fairly reasonable and competetive, I would say.
For details, please negotiate directly with the exports manager Mr. Kamei.
Unfortunately, he is not connected to the net.

    Shimnomachiya, Chigasaki City Kanagawa Prefecture JAPAN 253 Phone:
    +81-467-85-3339 ("81" is the country code for Japan) Fax:

In the meantime, if you want to buy Miyata unicycles or parts, you can do so
directly by contacting Mr. Kamei. His English is reasonable so communications
should not be a problem. Miyata will take care of orders directly anywhere, not
just the US.

Basically, you should negotiate with Mr. Kamei directly, but in a pinch I’ll
help out if necessary. This is an excellent business opportunity, and at the
same time happy news for the countless unicyclists for whom it is practically
impossible to buy a Miyata.
