I've been craving a new mixte. Not just new to me, which is the case with most of my bikes, but something with new technology and looks. With the departure of Mrs. Gale I've decided to completely revamp Irene. Her frame is in excellent shape and is exceptionally comfortable for me. She's going to be reborn as a three-speed with new wheels, drivetrain, saddle, etc. and more than likely a new color.
I don't even know where to begin with the project so suggestions are welcomed, especially for the wheels since that's where it's really all going to begin. She has 27" wheels so I'm not even sure what all my options are? My goal is for a quick, comfortable around town bike.
