    This bikesdirect cruiser bike looks really cool.

    http://www.bikesdirect.com/products/Mango/toucan3.htm

    the website only says "lightweight"... I wonder what the bike actually weighs?

    That's just an ugly Electra Townie. Not too much cheaper than a real one, too.

    With all due respect I would never buy a bike I couldn't try out first. That's smart shopping.

    Yikes...normally BD bikes are at pretty good prices, but almost $400 for a three speed cruiser online? Yikes.

    +1 (unless I had first tried out an identical model in person) And I find it difficult to believe one size bike ".... 19" fits most riders from 5'7" to
    6'2"

    I do agree about trying before buying. I'd have passed on the Melon due to the handlebars, and gotten a nice mini Velo instead.
