SiKK Beach Fat Tire Cruiser

Just a heads up on anyone looking to purchase the SIKK UFO 7spd 4 size beach cruiser. I received mine yesterday and although it rides very smooth and looks great. A word of warning if you are 5'6" or shorter you will find this bike a little difficult to navigate getting on and off. Even with the seat in the lowest setting the stance is very tall. You have been warned and oh BTW they don't want them returned. They will charge a steep restock fee and you also will pay shipping.

Yeah, Similar problem with FAT MTB's too.

Under 5'6" really needs a 24" x 4 or 5" wheel or else it screws up the geometry (or you need creative frame design.

Problem is, manufacturers consider 24" bikes to be for the young'ins

Tire is not the issue. It bike frame design. Look for bike with low top tube near the seat tube.

Designing around a too large wheel/tire CAN be done, but it's a compromise and not always a good one.

If you scale down the frame, you need to scale down the wheels/tires.

There's not a big enough market.
