Except it is not a mixte.

A mixte has two (smaller diameter) parallel tubes running from the head tube via each side of the seat tube, to the rear dropouts, very few mixtes are 531 throughout, and I doubt this one is more than 531 maintubes.

This is a mixte, and a very good example -

Agreed dan_bo,

the £130 bike is what I refer to as Grey Porridge, the Revell is class for £45 more.

Why are there so many watchers on a BIN?
