A Petite Buena Vista by American Cyclery

[FYI: 20% off Everything Sale going on right now @ Somafab Shop. Ends Friday]

The Mixte is one of our coolest bikes, but also one of the most overlooked. Did you know that term "mixte" comes from the french meaning mixed, or unisex. They can be built with upright bars, moustache bars or drops, geared, single speed, fixed or internally geared. It's actually one of the most versatile frames we make. So don't be afraid to try one out. You never know, you might find out you dig it.

This one is a size 42cm with 26" wheels, built by American Cyclery in SF.

The hammered fenders look a real treat on there, don't you think?

FYI to all you giants and giantesses out there, we're cooking up a new Venti size just for you.

Nice rack install.

I'm guessing this is supposed to be sarcasm, since this rack is obviously very tilted. Since this is a very small bike, I'd wager it's intentional. Tilting a rack like this moves the top of the panniers forward and rear backward, which really helps with heel strike. Seeing as how this rack is really big for the bike, if it weren't intentional it'd be tilted backward if anything.
