As I was building Trisha's Peugeot, last week, Carol let me know that she was in the market for a mixte, as well. She wanted a single-speed version, built up for relaxed rides around the neighborhood, with a rack for the occasional spur-of -the-moment purchase.
I had this Raleigh Record mixte sitting in the pile, so I started gathering parts.
I got some Nexave-hubbed cross wheels (the Nexave hubs are disc-compatible, which is neither here nor there, but they have a nice high flange) for a very reasonable price, and I mounted up the white tires I had on the orange Peugeot. I replaced them, on the Peugeot, with some cream-colored 700x35 Schwalbes.
A Nitto bar, with white Hunt-Wilde grips was installed with a high-rise stem salvaged from the chrome snow bike.
This is a Chinese-made copy of a Brooks saddle. I wasn't aware that it was Chinese until it arrived. I'll use it, but I'll avoid buying another. It sits fine, and seems well-made, but I just have a thing about slave labor.
This Raleigh-branded crank and the bottom bracket from the StumpJumper Monster X replaced the stupid front-freewheel unit which came stock on the Raleigh.
