I'll add to Eric's good points that many mixtes have a really long "top tube" for their seat tube size. For reasons like not having to do much change to a jig used for diamond frames to wanting some toeclip clearance. I have felt for a long time that mixtes were more about stand over or mounting issues and not a best solution for the smaller rider, unless additional steps are taken to shorten the TT length (like smaller wheels).
