1999 Mixte


Preston, 1999

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 1999. A second of the three vibrant Mixtes is also featured at this site.

The bike is equipped with mixed Shimano 105 and 500 components. The rear brake is mounted conventionally on the middle strut, unlike the earlier Mixte which required special bottom-pull mounting hardware.
