    MEN'S BIKE  look up translate image

This 'toptube' runs parallel to the ground, and is as high as the top of the bicycle frame. The interesting fact is that this is actually a dangerous design, and moreso for men than women.

    MIXTE  look up translate image
    A bicycle frame design that was originally designed to appeal to both men and women, so either sex could ride the same bike and not be embarrassed by cultural taboos. Men, in particular, do not want to be seen riding 'girl's' bikes. The mixte frame is just like a diamond or men's frame, except the toptube is not parallel to the ground. Instead, it runs from the top of the headtube, to a point about halfway down the length of the seattube, at an angle between parallel to the ground and the downtube. Although technically less strong and stiff, the Mixte design proves very durable.
