I finally completed building up Lorna's mixte. The fork and frame were made for her by Ahren Rogers, under contract to Velo Orange, a company specializing in vintage French components and bicycles. It has an 8 speed, internal-geared Sturmey-Archer rear hub, 650b wheels, Honjo hammered aluminum fenders, a vintage Perle chainguard, T-A crankset, Paul centerpull brakes, and a Brooks saddle and bag. The handbars are covered with laced-on elkhide, tough, yet soft to the touch. Our friends Eli and Lovina Hershberger, an Amish couple from Viroqua, made the basket. Pretty spiffy little bike, I think.
