Street scene schwinn mixte

I had lunch on campus today with a buddy. Instead of a bunch of fixed gear bicycles being walked around by fakeingers I decided a Vintage Schwinn should grace the pages today.

  1. I like that bike – see it whenever we go to the restaurant it’s parked outside of. I think its owner works there. The mis-matched pedals are classy 😛

  2. Dude, cool bike, but not a mixte. Top tube needs to freakishly extend all the way to the rear axle creating 3 stays for it to be a mixte. God, I sound like an asshole. Speaking of lunch, let’s get burritos this week.

      Like this.That’s my mixte, with about 1/4 inch coating of ice all over it. It still rode fine!

    1. Actually…given the approx age of the bike I’d guess they are suntour? Or schwinn-approved rebadged whatever. Way too old for SRAM. And you’re right about the valve stems 🙂 I bet if you opened that up the rim strip is all dry-rotted to heck.
