A real Mixte frame with double top tubes which extend all the way to the rear drop outs.

(Mixte frames are a unisex design that maintain the stiffness of a diamond frame because the split top tubes extend all the way to the rear drop outs, unlike a step thru "girls" bike where the top tube ends at the seat tube.) These frames were not often built in larger sizes, and less often of high quality steel. Soma solved that with this model, available in high quality materials and large sizes.

Soma calls this a 62cm, but it fits like a 60cm. Probably suitable for someone in the range of 5'10" - 6'4''.

Everything on this bike has less than 100 miles on it, except the crank arms. The chain rings are new.

Tire clearance for 700c x 42mm, or 650b by at least 42m.

Currently has 700c x 35mm tires, a Panaracer Pasela Protite in front (lighter, more supple) and a Schwalbe Marathon Green Guard in rear (more durable / puncture resistant where it counts).

Sugino triple crank, 8 speed cassette (think its an 11-32).

Dia Compe friction downtube shifters.

Velocity Dyad Rims with a Shimano Dynamo hub in front, Shimano Deore XT hub in the rear.

Avid BB7 mechanical disc brakes with matching levers.

Send any questions.

Selling because I've finally answered the question "how many bikes are too many?" for myself at least. The correct number for me is 4, not N + 1.
