My sister's after a new bike. She's comfortable on her 21" Dawes Diploma but wants something lighter and faster. She's decided that mixtes aren't for her. She likes vintage steel and we'd consider a project. I'm in London, but she's in Bournemouth. Anyone?

Good morning,

If it is not a mixte, is it a mixte variant you are looking for?

I'm not sure I understand the question. To clarify, we're looking for a normal step-through ladies frame with a single top tube.

Fair enough - the normal 'step through' is a 'mixte variant' -

Wiki Step-through - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Step-through_frame

There is another link to this but i can't find it.

I will keep my eyes peeled.

Hmmm.... I disagree here - a mixte is a specific type of step-through frame, not the other way round. I apologise for being pedantic, but if you're going to post links to wikipedia articles... 8)

I really appreciate your offer. It's surprisingly difficult to find decent ladies frames - especially larger ones. :D

LOL

I was pulled up for the same thing and i am pedantic!!! If i find the link i will send it.

I know you don't want a mixte but if you change yor mind i know where there is a NOS one and not overly expensive.

Anyhow, i will keep an eye out.

Hello, assuming it's okay with the OP - I'd be interested in this mixte if you could PM the details?

Many thanks.

Hi,

Halfords have a bike for £279 called a Pendleton - might be worth a look.

Eyes still peeled!!
