I haven't been on a bike in about 5 years and am looking to get a new ride. My main purpose will be to ride local bike trails (asphalt - on road) while towing a kiddie trailer with my 2 year old.
I'm really liking the look of several cruisers - and I am in love with a Kona Humu Humu... I've also looked at the Schwinn Panther, SSX and the Raleigh Special.
A guy at a bike store told me yesterday that riding a single speed coaster brake cruiser might get old if I plan to ride over 3 miles. He recommened a couple of hybrid Raleighs and Treks that had an upright comfy ride, but also 8 speeds and more features - all were less than the Kona. I felt he was actually being very honest as he wasn't pushing a more-expensive or as-expensive bike...
What do you think? Is a simple sinle-speed coaster brake cruiser OK for what I want to do? Any opinions on that Kona? Any suggestions?
Thanks in advance!
