Well its not a "mixte" according to the French who invented them, its a "Sport" sport.

Been through this already days ago in the Dura thread. See post #13 .
https://www.bikeforums.net/classic-v...ura-mixte.html

And I'll take the opportunity to say here what I did not say there; "Sport" is a pretty lame label for this style, practically begging for a Who's On First exchange when discussing it:
"It's a Paris-Sport Sport."
"Sport sport?"
"Yes."
"No."

As a newbie, I prefer your interpretation of the frame style as "Mixte".

It is much cleared to me that three sets of stays behind the seat tube would define the Mixte.

Yep, and here too.

So while not disagreeing, and lame or no, its what they came up with and what it is.

No idea who's on first.

Cannondale Black Lightning - $350 (Fort Collins)

Link

Ad copy:
1987 Cannondale SR800 "Black Lightning"
56cm
All original with rare Black and Gold Suntour Sprint indexed components.
A little bit of anodizing wear on the crank arms, and a few paint chips here and there.
Everything operates like it has very low miles on it. Probably the nicest example of a 33 year old Cannondale you will find anywhere.


Looks to be one of the good years, with the mighty-fine Suntour Sprint group, with quite a bit of wear from use, but clean.

Not my size.

'87 was the best year of Cannondales in my opinion...no cantilever dropout, filing and finishing was superb. Tange mangalloy forks made the filling-rattling ride a little more forgiving.

He clearly states "A lady's type bike that lacks the middle pair of stays is not a mixte" and shows a correct Raleigh Super Course frame as an example with the two separate stays running all the way from the headtube to the rear dropouts.

Many/most references to mixte's call them women's bike as well, this is also incorrect as "mixte" literally translates to universal, unisex for any and all. Many companies only offered the one style as a utility bike.

And on the Frenchie note, I've been eyeballing this, had deja vu when I first saw it but can't quite put my finger on why, maybe it was already listed in the past. Either way, it's pretty nice. It's totally my size but unless some freaking amazing human being is buying it for me, it ain't gonna land in my stable. Someone should buy it though!!

https://www.ebay.com/itm/Philippe-Bi...n/143371221830

$499? Man, yeah someone should jump on that.

Late '70s Maruishi Emperor touring bike with custom racks and luggage. This is unique, and a bargain at the asking price of $750 (SF Bay Area craigslist). Check out the stainless steel flask with custom holder, among many cool aspects of this bike. If it was my size I'd be on this in a flash. Sadly, it's way too small for me.
