Beach Cruisers Do you love balloon tires and fenders? Do you love riding the simplicity of a single gear and coaster brakes or a single gear cluster? Do you love the classic curves in the tubing of a cruiser that takes you back to the 1950's and 1960's, stylistically? Here's your home! Welcome to the Beach Cruisers and Cruisers forum!

Show me your cruiser.

I had back pain in general mostly upper back but no longer an issue with this sit up ride. That hump on the back of the saddle just felt odd regardless how I adjusted it.

No, you can tell by looking at the bottom bracket on both bikes to compare. The Electra/Townies have their BB moved forward about 2-3". Top one looks like it has a laid back seat post though.

same boat here... looking to add another cruiser, but my search is a little harder..... trying to find a much older cruiser (preferrably from the 30s/40s, maybe 50s) in rough shape to restore and ride

Learning a new camera this morning. Not too shabby for a $130.00 camera.

Thought I would add my wife's 1962 Schwinn that I put together for her. 5 minutes of riding and got compliments from some local bicycle club members.
