Schwinn Le Tour Mixte Single Speed, 19"/48cm
The base of this build is a late 70's Schwinn Le Tour mixte frame. Mixte frames are great for those who like to easily get on and off a bike without having to throw your leg over a high top tube. This makes them ideal for commuters as well. Built up with a freshly handbuilt alloy wheelset - the front is built in a 3-leading, 3-cross pattern for a unique look, while the rear is built in the standard 3-cross pattern. Headset and bottom bracket have been completely reconditioned. Drivetrain features an alloy SR Super Custom crankset with matching SR alloy pedals which look very nice together. Built up with some whites to accent the frames decals. Also features flat bars for a very comfortable riding position. This bike is ideal for riders 5'0" to 5'5" give or take.
