Building up the Velo Orange Mixte

Felkerino’s been working on this winter’s project bike, my Velo Orange Mixte. It’s coming together!

We pulled the wheels, chainrings, and bottom bracket off of my Novara Randonnee touring frame. You can see the Novara lurking, sad and naked, in the background of this picture.

The saddle, for the moment, is a sprung Brooks Flyer “S” that used to be on the tandem. This saddle may not last, however, as it is well worn.

The bars, Nitto stem, brakes, and brake levers are from the Felkerino Spare Parts Shop. I love that store!

To see how the whole project is progressing, check out the flickr set. The picture on the left right will take you there.
