Schwinn Le Tour Mixte Single Speed, 22"/56cm Lugged Steel - *SOLD*

Schwinn Le Tour Mixte Single Speed, 22"/56cm

The base of this build is a Schwinn Le Tour mixte frame. This is indeed a rare 56cm mixte, quite tall for a mixte as most frames are in the 48cm-53cm range. Mixtes make nice commuters and are comfortable bikes to mount/dismount when loaded down. Has been completely rebuilt with a reconditioned bottom bracket and headset and many new components. This bike is built up as a quick, coast-able single speed. Sports a new alloy wheelset, dished out for single speed. Features a nice reconditioned saddle with leather in a beautiful deep, red. The slightly swept back handlebars are wrapped in red cloth tape, then shellac'd to get an exact match to the saddle color. This bike is ideal for riders 5'7-5'11" give or take. Set up as a coast-able single speed with a 52/17 ratio, quick and speedy for flat city streets.
