HB   Recreational Rider [Sep 21, 2008]
Strength:

Quality of the bike. The looks, the cruise, the tires. Frame is nicely welded, finished and painted. Nice custom touches here and there.

Weakness:

It's on the heavy side. There is a lot of rolling mass in those wheels. Would like to be able to move the seat back further for an even cruizier stance. Would be nice to have a multi speed interally geared hub (I think I'll put one in). Bottom bracket and cranks are a bit cheezey for the price of the bike. Three piece quality cranks would be nice.

This is a great bike for its intended purpose - cruising. You aren't going to cover bike miles on this bike. However, this bike is just fantastic for slow cruises along the beach or to the shops or where ever. Its comfortable to ride, has a 22 tooth rear cog to make pedalling a heavy bike easier as it's only single speed. Remarkably comfortable for a ridgid frame but that is due to the springer seat and 3" fat white wall tires. This bike turns heads and attracts plenty of comments. I've never had a bike that so many people have been interested in, it really does attract compliments. Big bold chopper style triple clamp chrome forks and a very subtle stylish frame. It's nicely finished and looks like a quality bike.
