Love the wheels on the GFs bike! Also the overall shape of the frame is cool to look at, it flows.

My buddy has his handlebars set up similar to your daily driver on his 20" wheel cruiser. He is a tall dude and he says its pretty comfortable to ride with that set-up.

Nice bikes
Craig

I painted the rims myself. The pink came out very cool, a nice flat satin look.
I think im gonna keep the little bike. When I do drive places, it fits in my trunk so I can ride it where Im going. Thanks for the comps

The wheels did come out great, I thought they were factory finished. Nice.

Hey, I am a totally hetero dude also but I am not concerned about a little pink on my bikes. The mongoose commuter in my sig is an early 90s bright teal/blue-ish monstrosity w/ a slew of pink accents. Pink Oury grips, bottle cages, racks, and a front basket, and a few other nuts and bolts. A bit of pink mixed with the teal gives it a hilarious late 80s vibe.

And yes the ladies dig it, the bike gets borrowed by a few close female friends regularly and I usually have to steal it back.

I have no idea what the brand is. Before I got it, it was all black with no names/brands on it.
