    COSTCO Schwinn Cruiser - was $170 - now $130

    I know that cruisers are not necessarily the focus of this group, but many of them are single speed nonetheless . Now COSTCO during the winter months has been trying to offer a Schwinn 26" SS Cruiser with fenders and some front wheel suspension for $167.99 - I guess they did not sell, and so now - in time for beach season they reduced them to $129.99. I know they are very cheaply made, and may need some adjustments and component improvements, but I am curious if someone here bought one, and what their experience is.

    At least it would be a cheap start to a SS Klunker build.

    i have three.

    -one i converted to a 3spd with a vintage SA hub.
    -one i converted to a fixie with my old deep-v wheelset. (eggplant rear/red front)
    -one i turned in to lawn art. doggies pee on it when they get walked down my street.

    i like the third one the best.

    Me too. Deep V's or some Aerospokes would make it look sweeter.

    If I lived on a beach, it'd be the only bike I'd own.

    Think of it as 'Mao's Socialism Tool' and be happy.
