Anyone on a cruiser?
I am and just wanted to compare notes.
How do you think it compares to 20" for jumping. I very sure I would never go back, since I'm 6'1 and 200lbs. I also ride mountain and road. So getting on a 20" feels strange at least. But are you finding that you can't bunnyhop as high. Since it's more spinning weight, I wonder what it's doing to my jumping. Like, is it making moving the bike around in the air harder. Then again, the 20" bikes I see now days have a billion spokes, and are probably heavier than my cruiser. Just wonder what your thoughts are if you ride both, or have made the jump to the cruiser class.
On another note, my 10yo son is riding the 1 1/8 wide tire super light BMX Shwinn. I'm not sure how it's goin to hold up as he gets older, And am considering jumping him up to a regular bike. But since it's heavier, I'm undecided. I just don't want him trashing this bike so I can't sell it. Any thoughts? Especially if you have gone through this yourself?
