"Electra makes a superior riding Cruiser bike. You can get them in many forms... - 7 speed - 3 Speed - Aluminum or Steel - Generic or Fashion I will mention they are now owned by Trek. To me this means that the cool offerings of them will be waning."

Beach Cruiser Advice

can anyone offer advice for buying a beach cruiser?  target has some that look super cool but I'm wary that they will ride poorly after not too long.  I can repair bikes fine and know enough about most other bikes to judge decent vs not.  but cruisers are pretty simple and I'm wondering if there is a big advantage to the treks and electras vs huffy.  anyone have experience with both?ThanksSee More

notoriousDUG replied to CJ's discussion wheelbuilder needed
"A wheel is dead after 3 broken spokes in my opinion; with 5 broken spokes they should have told him it was time for a new wheel.  Come into Johnny Sprockets and I can take a look at it and see what we can do for him."
