    Well, I've bought two bikes off bikesdirect.com that have been very reliable. They are also pretty cheap for most stuff on the site.

    So maybe start looking there? To narrow down on what you'd...

    Speaking as a female with a male BH (not married yet, but eventually), chances are pretty good they know. Or at least suspect. If studies are any sort of indication, most women tend to keep a handle...

    I'm going to guess that you live somewhere fairly well developed? And that most of the people are fairly well off?

    The local libraries here are almost always well stocked with students (who can't...

    My grandfather on my dad's side had a roofing company years ago. Think early 90s, late 80s. Back then they made 15+ in upstate NY. I remember him bellyaching about having to hire outside the family. ...

    You get used to that. I think most stock 'cruiser' saddles have springs.. I switched my saddle to a Brooks B67s (it's hard leather with big springs) and the bouncy on cobbles is...annoying..

    I had a Schwinn very similar to that one. Try wiggling the saddle back and forth a bit, to see where it 'fits' you best. I've got a big butt too and find that moving it back a little is more comfy. ...

    Me + crap I carry is enough weight already. I'm already slow enough!

    So I stick to a sprung saddle and nice fat tires. It seems to work. I'm comfortable.

    If the cruiser will get you riding then go for it! I ride the crap out of my cruiser.

    Changing handlebars is no big deal.

    I have an IGH 8 speed mixte from bikes direct. Love it. I also like my 3 speed IGH stepthrough. It's from papillionaire. Both are steel. I commute on both.

    I have had something similar happen with the old style cruiser that I had. Well, both of them, the replica 'anniversary' 7 speed and the Sanctuary 7.. Neither was anything much more than a cheap...

    Thanks for the guidance. :) I thought it might be a freewheel... but I just didn't know for sure. It's off a rather cheap bike too.

    Looks like it might just be easier to get a new wheel. Blah. Or,...

    Freewheel or Freehub??? I can't tell.

    This bleeping thing. What is it? It's off a newer cheap Schwinn.. so possibly a freewheel.... but it's a seven speed so maybe not?

    I weigh a bit less than you but have a Winsdor. It has the thinner tires, 700x35 or 38; and IGH. The tires aren't that thin but are smaller than your last bike. That said. Mine is a different model...

    Yeah, sometimes there can be issues if the thing isn't configured right or if there is a conflict.

    1. Restart the computer regularly. It's good for them. Even better is shutting them down for the night...they cool off. They like that.

    You guys aren't afflicted with a bad case of the Gunslinger's Cult either. They ask because of suicide risks and dangers an unsecured gun can have to a child. Makes sense to me.

    I have one. The side with the gears goes on the side with the chain. ;) Other than that, I don't think it matters.
