Lavender & white. Classic Mixte lugged frame with two thin tubes running in parallel from the head tube past the seat tube, all the way to the rear dropouts. This lugged frame design provides the lower standover height of a step-through frame bicycle while avoiding some of the additional stresses the step-through frame bicycle places on the seat tube.
