Best Cruiser Bike

No matter how many new innovations come along in bike designs, some people will always be drawn to the classics. Cruisers today aren't your grandma's bike of yesterday. These bikes have sleek lines, quality build, and they are incredibly versatile.

A cruiser, also known as a "Beach Cruiser," still sports the vintage look but goes beyond the beach and the boardwalk. They are still built for comfort with the big balloon tires, comfort saddle, long wheel base and upright riding position.

Cruisers, with their bigger tires and added stability, are a great place to start if you haven't ridden a bike since you were a kid. This bike is a great choice if you are looking to use riding as part of your fitness routine and just want a calm, leisurely ride around town or your neighborhood.

If you want low maintenance that anyone can learn, you want a cruiser. These bikes are built for simplicity, leaving not much more than chain maintenance and an occasional flat tire to change.

You can find cruisers for everyone, adults and kids alike. That makes this bike perfect for a family ride to the park or a cruise on the beach.

I've been a cyclist since I was a child. I've owned as many as 5 bicycles at a time and all served a different purpose. I had a mountain bike for rough trails, a hybrid for on and off rail trails, a light weight racing bike for road riding, a modified mountain bike for longer distance riding, and a touring bike. I currently own the most compact folding bike available on the market. It's great for commuting and travel. I do the basic maintenance on them and I use a bike for travel purposes. I have had the folding bike down the east coast and from California to Maryland. I'm currently a staff writer for a NYC bike shop and enjoy seeing all the new equipment as it hits the store.
