Here is Karla M’s sharp 1974 Univega Mixte.
Hi Old Ten Speed!
The pictures attached are my Univega Mixte from 1974 that I bought at a local Bike Shop here in Orange, Ca about 3 months ago. I think most of the components (Suntour, Shimano) are from the time period and it runs like a dream. I was told they don’t make the large wheels for this frame anymore. It’s a 52 frame I think. I’m about 5’5” and feel like they made it custom for me. It’s my first real bicycle aside from the toy-store ones I had as a child. I use it as a commuter of 20 mi round way to work (not everyday of course). I kinda wanted to know if anyone can shed some light on what model it is? I paid about 170$ for it and later added the Brooks saddle, it came with a pretty decent modern vinyl seat, but you just can’t compare with a leather seat for my purposes.
