Single speed Cruiser bike for my Father-in-Law
Having lunch with my Wife and Father-in-law, and he drops a bomb on me. "Been looking at bicycles"
Never heard a word about this before. He said he's been looking in K-Mar, etc, and I told him, PLEASE don't go that route.
He wants to just tool around his retirement community. Hasn't ridden a bike in 60+ years.
He told me he wants a single speed bike. Trust me, if he says this, you will not be able to convince him otherwise. He said he also wants to be able to sit on the seat and plant his feet firmly on he ground.
I am going to take him to my LBS, but I called them today, and they have no single speeds in stock.
They carry Trek and Specialized. Anyone have a recommendation?
I'd rather he get something from the LBS, but more than that, I just want him to get something.
