The Corral: Gazelle Tour De France Mixte
"Come on, everybody's doin' it." said the voice in my head when The Hubby showed me this listing on Craigslist. I saw it an felt that I couldn't be the only blogger without a mixte. It just wouldn't be right not to buy it. So we did. Now I own a 1992? Gazelle Tour de France Mixte. It needs some work. And I have to admit that I strongly dislike the color scheme and paint job. It is quite manly to me. Marianne over at Lovely Bicycles and Betty Foy at Lets go ride a bike are so pretty. Do I keep her and paint her up pretty or do I leave her as she is and pass her on to someone who loves her the way she is. I just don't know. Unlike my other Gazelle Tour de France this one is totally rideable. I have only taken her for a short spin so far but she is fairly smooth and zippy. Quite fun.
