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.

Looks like the owner re-posted or someone "flipped" the bike. It's up again, but for $350 this time.

I'd say he got too many emails and adjusted his price. That will turn a lot of buyers off.

The Wife saw how much I enjoyed my Felt Cruiser that she broke down and bought her own. She loves the Beer theme on her new cruiser.....

As nice as this looks, this is just the back roads where houses were destroyed after hurricane Sandy. It's beautiful, but tragic at the same time. I do have a few areas around me that have mountain bike trails, but I haven't tested them out.

This is a cruiser, right? It’s a Shinola Detroit Arrow. It’s a nice riding bike, but I’d like a more upright posture. After seeing the pix in this thread, I’m thinking about some riser-type, or cruiser-type bars—Maybe bigger tires, too, if they’ll fit under the fenders.

Very nice. There are several bikes in this thread that are similar. Of course that wouldn't be called a beach cruiser, and thanks to the black paint it resembles a classic roadster, but as long as your cruising on it that's all that seems to matter.

Pull those fenders to fit wider tires and put on the higher handlebar you are wanting and it'll be a city cruiser for sure.
