Does huffy make those vintage-style cruiser faux tanks to fit under the top tube for this? It would be neat if they did and you could fit a spare tube and wheel wrenches in there.

I have an old Schwinn tank bike, and had never considered removing the horn and battery to use it for storage... Now, I may have to.

After you add the faux tank, would filling up the rest of the area down to the crank make that slick red devil more aerodynamic? I think I'd have to embed some red LEDs in the back of that saddle for brake lights, too. (Cool bike!)

So long as the bearings on it are well adjusted and lubed, I doubt it would be a bad bike. There's really very little to go wrong...

I'd say post it on in HrN in the 41, but it's now the new friendly HrN so you would likely just get ignored.

Glad you like it, but I gotta ask... since it is such a great bike, does this mean that you'll be riding more and posting less?

You seem to get confused by people's posts. What part do you need clarification on? We're happy to help.

And about the bike. The bike that you like, the bike that you ride, is by far the best bike (for you) on the planet.

If you look very closely (I have a digital image amplifier that lets me scutinize potentially subversive material) you can spot small electronic surveillance devices on the bike. One has a classic appearance for CIA, the other for the SVR. If I were you I'd ditch the bike, although it might be too late to save you.

It's most likely because people have read your threads.

+1

That's what I was thinking when I saw the thread title...the best bike in the world is the one you ride (and ride often, I might add).




and for the pics in the OP; I like the overall color scheme, especially the red rims.

Go do a 100 mile ride in one day on your beach cruiser and then come back and tell us how you feel.

Or he could use the cruiser for what it's intended for and enjoy it; no need to be an ass about it.
