That is a sweet deal:

I am pretty sure the sizes available should be in inches and not cm (they show a 20 cm frame as available which would be an 8" frame---maybe nobody is buying them because of the sizing error in the listing)

It's got 36 spoke wheels and Kenda tires 26X2.5 = nice~! The gearing is a bit tall @ 46-85 gear inches, or 8-15mph at 60RPM - so no real low gear for any hills at all - strictly a flat-land bike. Unless you can change the front sprocket to something smaller. I wonder how painful the shipping is? So, tempting...

Qualifies for free shipping - just don't put your zip code in. I just fixed up a cruiser and wish I knew of this before. . . .
