Absolutely! build your own bike from a selection that fits your needs. It's fun, entertaining and sometimes brain challenging (all good stuff). Also it can save money but I would not guarantee that...

Super Cruiser

This is my daily ride. This is quite the opposite of a single speed beach bike but I still think of it as a " Cruiser". It was originally an Electra Townie 21D (2010) with a Suntour suspension fork,...
