My "new to me" 70s KHS Gran Sport mixte
Picked up this 48cm frame mixte to use as a towing rig (I use a trail gator to tow my daughter's 20" wheeled bike) to replace the towing duties of my street tire equipped MTB. Got it for $40 from craigslist.......swapped out the bars to risers, longer seatpost and 700c wheels (parts I had lying around).
Planned use after my daughter outgrows the need for the bar-which means i can't ride from my house (towing it behind me, unoccupied to get her) is probably going to be a grocery getter...rear rack, panniers or folding baskets.
What do you guys n gals think?
