Hey, I am still looking around, but I was wondering about the multi-speed cruisers I see on this forum and at my local bike shop. On the one hand, I really like the looks of the single-speed Electra and the stock handlebars. I see that the other Electras at my LBS have a rear gear cluster, but the design isn't the same as the basic cruiser.
The big draw of the basic Electra for me is that I live in an apartment building and the heavier the bike, the less chance it will get stolen from the storage area! LOL
Plus, the single-speeds must be better for getting and staying in shape, right?
