Tan Adorable Chiquitita!

Welcome the newest member of our bike family!

A gorgeous bright blue Miyata Sport Junior! 
How could I resist?

A little size reference.

A little more reference, he's 51" tall.

When he saw it he jumped off his (way super cool, all chrome BMX that I picked up for $10 at a thrift store) and ran for it yelling, "It's a mixte!  YES!"

Later on I told him that some people think mixtes are for girls and he cut me off saying, "What they just don't get is that most mixtes are vintage and vintage bikes are way better." 

It's in great shape and really just needs a little cleaning and some bright yellow handlebar tape.  I'm really not sure who's more excited, me or him?


  1. blue bicis rule the bikey universe!! :D
    awesome bike YAY <3

  2. I know it is the last thing a young man wants to hear, but, HOW CUTE is he with that bike! . . . And such good taste at a young age. (I'm glad I'm not the only one to be found cycling in Crocs).

  3. Oh wow, that looks just perfect for him!
    Indeed, how could you resist : )

  4. Wow- That seems like a pretty rare bird- a mixtie that small. Major score!

  5. That is a super cool mixte. He's got a keen eye for classic Japanese steel. I'll be looking for something similar when my little girl is about eight inches taller. Until then her 16 inch Electra Hawaii mixte will have to do.
