    Errand bike wanted

    I'm wanting a coaster-brake errand bike that I can fit with fenders and a basket. The usual "cruiser" style bikes (including the supposedly heavy-duty Worksmans) seem to have a 1" seat post that bends when I sit on it. The only durable coaster brake bike I've seen so far is the Electra Townie. Anybody have other suggestions? Thanks!

    Agreed! That's why I sold my Dyna cruiser bike. I bought a new Townie 1-speed today!

    Bikes use brakes to stop.

    If your bike has breaks, don't ride it.
