    Looks extremely clean!

    The negatives, steel rims, cottered crankset, french threading, gas pipe frame, bottom end bike.

    The plusses: extremely clean and a mixte.

    Because of condition and that it is a mixte, I would estimate value at $200, maybe even a little more.

    Whats a Mixte anyways? I mean is it a unisex bike? Or more of a speedy looking ladies bike. What are they not in the peugeot catalogues ive been looking at trying to date the bike (1975 according to the rims.... )

    I sometimes see hipsters (guys) on these converted to single speed using the original cog. I think they want to be "in" but may not have the money for something better and have found a mixte. Or maybe they cant raise their leg over a regular mens top tube in their really tight skinny jeans.... who knows... im just saying....

    See the top tube? Its actualy 2 smaller tube and they run all the way from the headtube to rear dropout without stopping giving the the rear section 3 tubes versus 2. The rear seaction has seat stays (tubes by the brakes), chainstays (tubes down low by the cranks and the middle tubes (extended top tube)

    In general a mixte has 2 sepaerate top tubes running the entires length of the bike. Variations of a ladies frame are:

    1. Regular ladies frame with 1 big top tube that terminates at the seat tube.
    2. 'Pseudo Mixte' 1 big tube that terminates at the seat tube with seperate tubes continuing to the back axle. 3 seperate bar total.
    3. Mixte. 2 seperate tubes front to back.

    Ladies frames are inherently weaker and dont ride as well as mens bike. A true mixte frame helps to strengthen the frame and bring back some of the lost ride quality.


    NOT A MIXTE:




    Pseudo Mixte: See hoe the top tube terminates at the seat tube then seperate tubes continue to the back? This debatable in regards to being a mixte.
