Hey all...our online beach cruiser store is looking at seriously expanding the sorts of accessories we offer for cruiser bikes (that work on others too: lowriders, vintage, etc..)
Would love to get some suggestions on accessories we should offer. Hard to find stuff, wacky stuff, all that sort of thing. Ideas?? :D
TIRES!>>>>>>>BIG "FAT" TIRES!.........at a reasonable price.

I've put quite a few miles on my cruiser, but really haven't run in any accessory needs that were unique to them. But some ideas:
-Water bottle mounts for frames without brazeons, and preferably where they can be rotated to mount on handlebars. REI has some, I think, and Walmart has some, but the Walmart ones can't be rotated.
-Racks and rack clips for frames without the mounting points for racks.
-High quality rubber-block type pedals. I can find rubber-block/platform pedals (the name varies), but they're pretty cheaply made. And the more expensive peg-type Wellgo pedals, I've heard good things on durability but don't care for the style.
Thanks everyone for the suggestions. Cruiser tires seem to be a common request...and finding tires for bikes online seems a bit difficult partly because the shipping cost of tires can cost as much as the tires themselves! We ship everything free, so if we sold tires on their own we would have to charge a little extra to continue or free shipping on everything policy...
