Possible WTB: Mixte frameset or bike for 5'9" rider

Might be looking for a mixte bike or frameset for a tallish rider- 5 foot 9. Prefer something higher on the food chain, so good dropouts, RD hanger instead of a claw, lugged, etc. Preferred color is blue.


Sound like something that might be in your basement or garage?


Thanks
Doc

Doc check this out. Not sure how sizing works on these things.

Yeah, so trying to stay away from french threading and what have you, sure they are lovely bikes and all, just not in my wheelhouse.

That Fuji looks more like what I'll eventually need to pick up.

Problem with these custom builds is you get a request out of nowhere and sometimes they go...nowhere.

I have access to a Nishiki (blue) and an A-D (metallic rose) mixte. I'll check sizes.
