    Blue and gold…so pimp!

    Mixte frames are hot this year…everyone’s doing it. Nice to see!

    It stupid to keep calling the mixte a “ladies frame”. There is nothing gender-specific about that frame style. A “ladies” frame should just have different proportions that suit women better.

    why would it be stupid when the “bike industry” calls it a “mixte frame.” Sounds like your personal opinion is WAY off from what the actual standard is.

    $349 for a complete bike!!! I can’t even build a set of wheels for $349. That is sweet. Bike number 7 may be coming !!!!

    You misunderstood my statement. A “mixte” is not a “ladies frame”. A “mixte” is perfectly suited to both men and women.

    Murali…I tend to agree with you but even the late great Sheldon Brown referred to mixte frames as “ladies’ frames”.

    Personally, I’d love to rock one no matter which gender the bike is intended for.
