    Well, that depends on what one thinks 'looks good'. Nearly every body type can dress to impress. IMOO, only superheros look good in spandex. Us mere mortals are never flattered by it. Never. In...

    Oh, I actually like them less on the small framed. Makes them look like walking sticks. They flatter no one.

    I've seen them too.... and I still say tights are meant to be worn under something, not as pants. It is a look that flatters no one.

    And, do they make any for women too?

    I saw the women's commuter jeans.... did not have any of the good features. There has to be something out there...yes?

    This is why there should be a curb.. keep them out.

    Wish we had a few more bike lanes here.

    Hmmm.... it's it the case that...

    Yellow or orange with a black saddle. Or one of those 'camo' tapes in yellow/orange or yellow/white.

    Then again... I have clown barf tape. YMMV

    Instead of a cruiser, would you consider a 'city' type bike? They tend to be a whole lot lighter than a cruiser, have 700mm sized wheels and can go fast or slow, as you choose.
