Hello all, new guy here. I posted this in Rec and Family and then decided maybe this was a good place to post also.
I currently have a 12 year old Huffy 3 speed with coaster brakes. I don't know what model because I'm at home and the bike is at the ocean (South Bethany Delaware) where I ride it. As you would expect, all my riding is on flat ground but wind can be a factor, so the three speeds are appreciated. I'm 57 years old and in fair shape.
I'm considering a new Sun Drifter 3 speed with coaster brakes that I saw in a bike shop at the ocean. It's aluminum and lighter weight than the old Huffy. The Huffy has it's original tires, so if I keep it I should probably invest in new tires. They are not worn out but have cracks in them from age. The bike is also rusting now from being in an ocean community.
Any thoughts on whether I should keep the Huffy and put new tires on, or get a new aluminum Sun Drifter? The Drifter would cost approx. $325. (I believe I've gotten my moneys worth out of the Huffy
