MINIMUM COCKPIT  look up translate image
The shortest the cockpit can be made by changing the stem to the shortest one available.
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.
