Sarah!! Bike looks great:)
Oh yes...I've been drooling over that Mixte for awhile now:) I want a lugged frame too though maybe not exactly like hers. I actually contacted her frame builder today for a price quote. It will...
I think I tend to agree and I'm going to pass on this Mixte...I think my long term plan now is to have a frame built for me and have my LBS build it up for me so its my "perfect" bike.
I'm looking to having a Mixte frame made for me next Spring but I'm hoping to find a local frame builder here before I commission someone elsewhere.
Experience is a must as I need a good guide...
Magnet stuck to the rims:)
LOL I just noticed the non matching tires...oh my....Should I just put a general C&V shout out for a Blue Motobecane Mixte and hope someone comes through??:) PLEASSEEEEEE:)
Tom, The seller just emailed me back and mentioned he couldn't find any identifies on the bike to see if it was a Mirage or not.
Is there any other way he could confirm?
That is a nice front rack!! We're carfree so any extra storage spots on the bike will go far. I have a super bike mechanic too so I'm sure if the bearings need overhauled he will be up to the...
I thought it may have been a Mirage but wasn't comfortable making a guess. and thanks about the mention about front cargo..maybe a Bates Crate would be in order too:)
I'd probably say not special to a keen eye or someone more familiar with vintage bikes or Mixtes than I am however I've wanted a Motobecane for a year now after first hearing about Mixte Bikes and...
I'll remember...hopefully I can con errr bribe hmmm....find someone to help if the bike is still available and you are busy with daughter school&visit stuff:)

thanks for the offer Tom!! I promised my husband though I wouldn't buy anymore bikes until I start working again on the 16th.....I may email the seller to keep me updated if its still available...
Why can`t I be in SF right now...Anyone on here in SF want to help me get this bike if its still available at the end of the...
From your lips to the Bike Gods ears:D Thanks....It may take me a year or two but I'm going to learn patience....luckily I still have lots of things do do with the DL-1 to keep me occupied.
Lovely Bicycles is probably one of the few bike blogs make sure to read daily...I'm mimicking some of the same upgrades on my DL-1 that she did on hers...
I think you should get any of them but #2....that one you should send on a one way trip to Canada:D Now I know where all the Mixte bikes are;)
oh yes Velouria is a Pashley Princess owner and BF member maybe she'll see this post:)
I'm getting those cream coloured Deltas put on my DL-1 Friday hopefully:) they just arrived at my LBS yesterday.
Thank you to everyone for your comments:)
Upon further reflection I think I'm going to pass on the Raleigh...In the end its really just didn't grab my attention since my dream Mixte is really a...
This is what I love about the C&V'ers on BF, none of us are above enabling one another;)
