1993 Mixte


Leeds, 1993

Not many lady's Hetchins were made in total, and only three were made with vibrant stays. The lady's model is known as the Mixte, which refers to the extra stays running diagonally from the dropouts to the head tube. This one was made in about 1993, and is one of the last Hetchins made at Jackson Cycles. A second of the three vibrant Mixtes is also featured at this site.

The bike has original kit as follows: Stronglight triple crankset, Deore XT rear gear changer and Campag front changer, Weinmann brakes, and Campag headset bearing.

Of special interest are: the pump with matching paint and transfers; and the bottom-pull rear brake arrangement. It requires reversed cable tensioner and mounting hardware, as the cable comes from beneath.
