5 Signs You're A Beach Cruiser

Beach Cruiser Bicycles have been around since the 1930s.

They are truly nostalgic and certainly timeless, having prevailed as the go-to bicycle for cruisin' around town... but why, and is a beach cruiser for me?

Their upright riding position, balloon tires, very comfy seats, and endless accessorizing possibilities (fenders, baskets, cup holders) for customization make the beach cruiser the perfect bike to bee-bop around town on. Tourists and locals alike, appreciate their simple design and durability to withstand the salty air, all while coming in at a budget-friendly price.

Sometimes you just need a breath of fresh air. If you've gotten in the habit of automatically jumping in your car to head to the store or coffee shop, maybe its time to consider hopping on your bicycle more, much more!?!

5 SIGNS YOU'RE A BEACH CRUISER:

  1. You want a laid-back, easygoing, mellow way to transport yourself from A to Z.
  2. You want a new way to #optoutside and take in the sights & sounds.
  3. You want to accessorize and stylize your bike so it's unique.
  4. And you might even have a little furry friend named Toto that you'd like to 'tote' around with you in your handlebar basket.
  5. You're in dire need of an undemanding alternative to recover from spin class and your weekly riding group.

WHAT SIZE BIKE SHOULD I GET?

Beach Cruisers may come in various sizes or one-size fits all and also have options like Single-Speed or 7-Speed variations. Each beach cruiser can be unique in its own way, it's just up to you! Cruisers are for cruising, not for a challenge, and we all need a little help cruising through life!
