In August, I bought my first new bike since I've known anything about bikes and it was a lot of work. I knew I wanted a mixte, which narrowed the choices down to just three, or so I thought.
Rivendell Betty Foy
Turns out, I missed Riv's last call for their mixte regular- the $2000 frameset with heart shaped lugs that are so beautiful they make me cry.
But there was still the Betty Foy Rivendell, which also has heart shaped lugs and checks in at $1000 for frameset.
And then the Soma a mere $450 for frame and forks.
