Lemans mixte

Picked this up a while back. Its not real original but the paint is in great shape. Going to set it up as the spare bike for any house guest.

We like having guest bikes, too. I think I should acquire a tall one for our occasional tall guests.

i like a mixte with long and short seatposts and a long stem because i can accomidate many sizes. Hell i'll probably ride it eventually. Its tange and quite light for a mixte.

Are the stem and seat post really long enough that you have 2" in the seat tube and in the steering column?

These Centurion mixtes are great bikes, very stable.

i have no idea. Just stuck it in the stand. If i set it up for myself I'll use a dirt drop or a technomic. A mountain bike seat post should suffice in back. Kalloys are about 2 miles long.

This is getting me excited for my Centurion Mixte. Accordo though, so Champion 5 & stamped dropouts. Don’t really mind though.

Very bad ass. I'm surprised the rear caliper fits, but what a great way to get a top pull caliper in there. That's my favorite mixte model ever, and looks like someone dropped at least a couple of pounds off of it. Is it 27"? Looks like Suntour piggy-back shifting, very nice application there. Never thought of trying that. I have a 3x10 upright bar somewhere with shifters/levers on it. Would love to try it on a nice mixte.

actually there are two routes for the brake cable on this frame. it had 27" wheels but i will go with 700c so i cn get marginally wider tires. probably also ill go with bar ends and different bars.
