The seat stays may look removable but that 'gray' colored stuff around the ends is some sort of adhesive filler. The carbon fiber tubes are actually built up around very thin Aluminum tubes. Then the whole frame was assembled using adhesive cured under heat and pressure. The exact process was never revealed by Miyata. I do not think I want to mess with trying to take 'em apart.
