Thanks for all the positive comments guys.
@kanzlr I think its just a basic steel frame - I think the stickers we designed to look like Reynolds stickers
Happy to use the friction shifters - though I'm struggling to find any wheels that have or would take a 5sp freewheel. Anyone got any spare?!
As its friction shift could I stick a wheel with a 7sp cassette on?.
@tevevw Hadn't really considered getting the wheels rebuilt on the old hubs - I thought that would be really expensive. Is it a cost effective option? And if so, does anyone know if there is there anyone worth talking to around Birmingham?
Thanks for the tip on the tyres @chris667 - She wants cream delta cruisers I think - should look great. Was going to replace the pedals - one side doesn't want to screw in - looks like the thread has been damaged somewhere along the line and the one that does screw in is really stiff to rotate. Figured what with everything else I need to do to the bike I'll drop some new pedals on and see if I can fix the ones I have later.
@etrowagen1234 Why a Mixte? They look nice
I don't think there is any structural advantage over a normal dropped bar frame and cost more to make, but the strong diagonal line across the frame looks great. From what I understand they are uni-sex frames, but this one is for my girlfriend.
