    Hi, Newbie here.....

    I'm not sure this will post as a link. Can anyone offer suggestions on this bike please? In case the link doesn't work, it is a Trek Cruiser Classic. Thanks, Mark

    not really an expert on cruisers, but it looks sweet, and it gets good reviews.

    have you thought about internally geared cruisers, they are super reliable and offer more than one gear, for climbing, or bombing. trek has a line of bikes i think they call them "limes"

    My response would have been something along the lines of: "Does your bike have computer controlled suspension? Then shut your piehole, this baby is from the future!"

    You see, their morals, their code...it's a bad joke, dropped at the first sign of trouble. They're only as good as the world allows them to be. I'll show you. When the chips are down, these...These "civilized" people...they'll eat each other. See, I'm not a monster. I'm just ahead of the curve

    I just switched out the old wheelset for a set of Worksman Super Heavey Duty wheels the rear wheel has a cog thats built for indutrial bike use so I had to order the "Heavy Duty" chain that goes with it

    wtf is with all that extra metal? also, why do cruisers insist on having geometrically inefficient shapes? shouldn't a bicycle builder know that a triangle is stronger than a squiggle?
