You're welcome. The area is best ridden in the spring when it's green, but anytime on the bike is awesome. Casino and riding, bad combo! ;)

I did this one late July last year, nice ride overall, really hot that time of year. Couple of pretty steep but short climbs on the way back. Was going to do Cat Canyon but since I was on a cruiser...

Thefts are huge at colleges so yes, keep it simple. And since they're stored outside don't spend much money on them as they'll be virtually destroyed in a couple of years. For a flat campus I'd...

Mid 80's Cruiser?

Hello, found this listed and I'm interested but the only thing that doesn't look classic Schwinn to me is the top tube/bottom tube/head tube junction. All of the older classic Schwinns I've seen have...

Wow (those pics)!! Feed a stray cat and you just get more stray cats. Plain and simple. Stop feeding them and move them along. Our state is a sanctuary state (their words). A sanctuary for homeless,...

Like JSIGONE, I used to like to ride pretty light (well as light as I could on a cruiser) with no saddle bag because I didn't like the way they looked on the bike, yet I liked to do pretty strong...

Last 2 years I've done an all-nighter 200km Audax ride up and down the SART, starting at 7pm and finishing 5am or so. The organizer does it every year. Personally I'd be sketched out to ride it...

"Craftsmen wrench" LOL I thought about that but I just tossed in the bag a small vise grip as a quasi multi-tool.

Wow, 40T is quite small. See what your back one is, one tooth smaller can make quite a difference. I run 44T / 17T but I ride pretty aggressively. I can "cruise' 16-17 mph fairly comfortably...

I wouldn't leave a bike I liked more than 10 minutes. At a minimum I'd use a U lock but seriously, if you want to leave a bike for hours, find a crappy bike to use.

Another reason to ride a cruiser. 65 miles with a 3 mile beach ride in the middle. Try that with your 23's or whatever they are. ;)

Only 2,000 miles on a set of rims? You gotta be kidding me. You roadies need to step down to some 26" cruiser rims, man. 7,000 miles on my current set and Schwalbe 2.35 inchers. Not one flat....
