Walmart cruisers any good? -Also how about Trek Calipso?
I have a decent Trek hybrid bike for my longer rides, but am now also looking for a 7 speed retro looking fat-tired cruiser just to crawl around town with...
I'm 70+ and still got me a soft spot in my heart for these old time looking bikes that were the mainstays of my boyhood days!
I saw a nice looking one in (gasp!) WalMart... Thing even had chrome steel fenders! Anyone have any experiences with these Wallywurld bikes? Sheeeesh, it was only $139, which ain't too hard to take..?
I'm also considering the Trek Calipso because it's a 7spd cruiser that's supposed to be fairly lightweight, but my local dealer wants $400+ for it, and that's making me a bit twitchy, y'know?
