Hi All,

I tried this last year but missed out so I though try again:
My Daughter still has a hankering for a twin-tube mixte.

small-ish mixte cheapish but racy, drop bars preferred but F&F might also be an option.

Cheapish - this is for her ride to school.

Thanks

Thanks.

What's that in old money? 21"... probably too big, I'm not too sure how mixtes measure up.

Having said that, could be interested.

I've got a Carlton Courette that is newly restored. Think it is 19" but will have to check and get photos at the weekend.

Love to see some pics, but this is for her School ride, so it might be too nice if fully restored.

Pics attached, but on measuring it I realised it is a 21" frame.

I've just got the back brake cable, a pedal to put on and a little fine tuning and it'll be good to go.

Looks like a nice job. Possibly too nice for the school run. Did you have it powder coated? I do fear 21" will be too big / long in reach with the drop bars. I'll measure my daughter up for size.
