(Not sure if it's quite the right forum for this, if not I apologize. The BMX subforum specifies 20" so this doesn't apply there.)
Is anybody around here riding a BMX cruiser as a primary "getting around" bike? I'm sure that if I had to ride 20+ miles a day to be at an office by 8AM, it would be no fun, but for getting around the inner city it works great. (That being said, I ride it 20 miles per day all the time, and feel fine.)
I prefer them to fixed-gear track bikes, perhaps, because of my skateboarding background: I like to be "standing" while travelling and I like to coast.
I also like the smaller size/better maneuverability, and that I can push it around like a scooter very easily. To me this is worth having to pedal a little harder to go a little slower.
Honestly I'd say my reasons are similar to what a fixed enthusiast would cite: I feel most intimately connected to this kind of bike, and it's very simple to operate.
Currently I ride a "Shadow Conspiracy x Invisible Man", as sadly my Floval Flyer was stolen (lifted over the top of a Bus Stop sign). I've got the tires inflated as much as possible. It may see an upgrade to grips and cranks in the near future.
Interested in any responses,
