diy bikes

2012.04_building up a bike frame
Months ago Eric found this Raleigh mixte frame in a free pile. I had been talking about wanting a mixte for months so its incredible that it just appeared. It was missing some parts and other parts I chose to replace so I could have more of an upright bike like a cruiser or Dutch bike. So far, I've put on fresh tubes, tires, stem, handle bars, cork grips, shifters, shifter cables, brakes, and brake cables.
