I want to retrofit a mixte frame to be my daily commuter. I found some cheap mixte frames, but I don't know which to make my project bike and which to pitch. Can I get a little help?
The first is a 1977 Peugeot UO18C. It's 20"/52cm and of undisclosed steel tubing.
The second is a Concord that I can't find any info on. It's 21"/54cm and cheap hi-ten steel.
I'll ride the winner as is for a while while I'm collecting parts, then I basically want to convert it to a single speed and powder coat it, get new wheels, full fenders, rack, saddle, stem and handle bars, etc. And end up with something like this:
A bike uniquely mine to ride off into the sunset...
So is there some criteria for which would be a better candidate? Would either get the job done?
