Let us espouse the virtues of the oft-maligned, yet frequently under-rated Mixte bicycle. I’m currently getting my wife’s Raleigh mixte ready for summer service, and I’m positively in love with the frame. I’ve always liked the stability, practicality, and unique-ness of the mixte. Frequently sneered at as a “girls’ bike” I prefer to see them as “step-through” frames, badass for boys and girls. C’mon mixte people, shout it out!This is a similar frame to my wife’s, hers is red/black, and I’m inspired by the simple conversion to single speed.
