This is my $145 Wally World cruiser. It's the "Onex" by Genesis. The frame is aluminum, as well as the rims and they have enough spokes to make Matt Hoffman happy. I removed the fenders and chain guard and replaced the cranks (longer ones), sprocket (smaller one), and the seat. I'll be putting new handlebars on it, soon. It rides like a dream. Everything cheap needs to be altered in some way.https://scontent-a-iad.xx.fbcdn.net/...12548256_n.jpg

I think my current bike build may belong here at Beach Cruisers.
Started out as a cheapie bikesdirect.com city bicycle. http://www.bikesdirect.com/products/windsor/essex.htm
Added a Brooks saddle, antique handlebars, stem and front rack from an old Dutch bike, removed fenders and added huge cream tires.
Also addded a beautiful chainguard from Velo-Orangehttp://bikeforums.net/attachment.php...hmentid=373883

pathdoc 04-11-14 08:46 AM

Seriously good looking bike.

Nothing fancy here. Its a late-1990's Schwinn Typhonn (dept store quality) that I got for free. I had to get a new handlebar, new tires, and give it a cleaning, but it came out nice for a ride-around-the-neighborhood bike. And I live 2.5 miles from the beach, so its really IS going to be a beach cruiser. :D

Finally winter is letting up! I really want to invest in a Brooks cruiser saddle.

A GX7 from Walmart. At the LBS now, getting it lubed and tuned. We'll see how this one works out

How do you even ride it? Whaaaat... Don't your hands get extremely tired?

ilikebikes 05-04-14 08:52 PM

Board Track Racer? Then you may (or may not) like this incarnation....

My wife and I got these on Saturday. Haven't rode a bike in at least 10 years. So much fun.

Nice with the lights and north road bars. How is the ride with the forward position and the springer fork? I had a springer from chubbies cruisers on the front of a schwinn for a while and took it off, it was always too squishy.

ilikebikes 05-08-14 08:34 AM

Both Schwinn springer forks and Schwinn style repop forks are fully adjustable by loosening or tightening the bolt that runs down the middle of the spring. ;)
