The Next Project:

I’ve not even finished this one and I’m thinking about the next one. I’d like to do a mixte. I’ve seen a couple of old nice frames knocking about on eBay and Gumtree, and think that it’s something I’d like to try. Most people seem to think that they’re ladies cycles, but they’re not. Yes, they have a step-through frame, but as the name implies, a mixte frame is just that, from the French; mixte is unisex.
But a mixte is a roadbike… a racer, and not exactly a relaxing ride. True.
But a mixte is a roadbike… a racer, and doesn’t have hub gears, but those ugly oil chainrings and dérailleurs. Also true.
It’s just an idea. Hmm. Thinks on…
