    Need help picking.

    I am definitely going to buy a cruiser next week but I can't make up my mind which one of these to buy. Because of my weight I would really like to get the best frame. The ones I am looking at are all Schwinn but I can't make up my mind which one
    Sanctuary
    Lakeshore
    Clairmont
    Delmar
    Point Beach Cruiser

    It is been a short while since I have been into the biking, my last bike was a Western Auto single speed cruiser, around about 1948. I need to get started for exercise and I would appreciate any help I can get on pointing out the differences in these bikes.
    Thank you in advance

    Although I do regret not getting any replies whatsoever to my post, I felt obligated to at least state how it turned out.

    My son-in-law had a friend that had a mountain bike for sale. I went by and looked at it, then crawled on it and tried to ride it but I could not get my leg up far enough to get the high-end of the stroke. So I guess I will go back to my recumbent exercise bike until I can build my legs up or take my stomach down a little.

    I was going to respond, but I did not have anything positive to say about new Schwinns, and did not want to be a thread crapper.

    Good luck on your fitness program and post again when you start looking for a bike again.

    Not familiar with any of the bikes you listed. I have a couple of Schwinn Signature models and have been happy with them. As far as getting your leg over the bar, consider a step through bike for ease of mounting to get you started. I routinely ride one for my grocery getting. Some unknowlegable folks refer to them as "girls bikes" but WTH do they know.

    I am afraid it did not turn out too well, he refused to give up and went back then had a heart attack. Tonight he is in the Hospital and I am finishing up his uncompleted loose ends.
