This is my way of saying...what's the discount for current WW customers? We just bought the Kid a new bike, but I might be able to convince the Girl to get an e-bike with me....

Hey Pushkar, do you have any photos of the mixte frame to share?2. We have regular and Mixte versions of the bike. We needed clearance for dual battery and couldn’t do a classic mid step.
1. I will have those soon. Just waiting for the first set of bikes to get here.Hey Pushkar, do you have any photos of the mixte frame to share?
Also, when it comes to pedaling without assist, where would you place motor resistance compared to other mid-drives (say, Shimano or Brose/Specialized)?
I'm only asking because I had a recent health scare, and my original plan for a "brand" mid-drive have shifted to a mixte/step-thru frame, and I'd now like a throttle on a mid-drive that isn't a 60+ lbs monster.
Thanks! I thought I was doing fine... but apparently not THAT fine! I'm okay now, but it's a lifestyle changer.1. I will have those soon. Just waiting for the first set of bikes to get here.
2. Pedaling without assist - I would recommend having the motor on, and keep assist at 0 if you want to pedal without assist ( like a normal bike). If you completely switch off the motor, you will get resistance (back EMF) no matter what motor it is. Some motors do a slightly better job. Assist level "0" provides a little bit of current to neutralize this electromagnetic resistance.
I hope you feel better though. Health scares are not fun
Sorry not familiar with the mixte term. Glad to see it means what I want.
Here's a more recent example of mixte frame.
A Peugeot mixte frame bicycle
One particular type of step-through frame is called a mixte. In a mixte frame, the top tube of the traditional diamond frame is replaced with a pair of smaller tubes (lateral tubes, or lats) running from the top of the head tube all the way back to the rear axle, connecting at the seat tube on the way. The normal seat stays and chainstays are retained. This provides the lower standover height of a step-through frame bicycle with a strong diamond-frame geometry.
Mixte (pronounced [mikst]) is a direct appropriation of the French word meaning "mixed" or "unisex". The usual North American bicycle industry pronunciation of this loan word is /ˈmɪkstiː A variant on the mixte uses a single, full-sized top tube running from the upper head tube to the seat tube, but retains the middle set of stays. The FNCRM (Fédération Nationale du Commerce et de la Réparation du Cycle et du Motocycle) calls this style a sport. Other named French styles of step-through frames, in addition to mixte and sport, include berceau, Anglais, jumele, col de cygne and double col de cygne.
