Here are two photos of our prototype mixte city bike frame which is going to Neil B. It was built by Ahren Rogers, nice fillet brazing. Note the generator mount, chainguard bosses, and rear brake location. The slightly odd cable guides are for the shifter cable for a SA 8-speed internal geared hub. I think we'll switch to non-wrapped seat stay caps on the mixte frames since they would then look like the mid-stays, a more consistent appearance.
Ahren will build up the frame over the next couple of days and Neil's wife will get a very nice present on Monday. Neil, we want lots of photos please.
BTW, our next frame is a semi-lugged mixte frame from Johnny's shop with rando geometry!
