Girls 20Beach cruiser bicycle is the perfect bike to ride with ease. Bicycles are designed to allow the rider to sit more upright, without having to lean forward toward the handlebar, which greatly reduces the stress on your lower back. Bicycles are not made to be driven at high-speed, this bike is a bike that can be enjoyed.

Single Speed or Multi Speed?
One of the first things to consider is where will you ride the bike, and what type of area will you meet? If you will be on flat terrain and on the sand lots, with no desire to drive very fast for long periods of time, we will suggest a single-speed cruiser. It is very simple, and has a basis for stopping coaster brake. Since there is no teeth to move, there are not many opportunities for sand can cause problems on the way up on the beach. This is the type of bike you can ride and ride, without ever thinking about shifting gears.

For those of you in the hilly terrain, or if you need to drive long distances, you might want to consider some speed bicycle. Most of the cruiser bike with some gears have between three and seven speeds. Basically, the more gears, the more options you have to pedal efficiently. At the speed of three, you will have a low speed, medium and high. If you go up into the hills and has a hard time paddling, you can move to a lower gear, so it’s easier pedaling. The same thing applies when you are pedaling very easily and want to go faster, shift into top gear and the resistance will increase, but you will get more “bang on your feet” so to speak. A six-or seven-speed bike operates in much the same way and have the possibility of even more. Most of the cruiser bike we carry have the shifter panel, which means the shift mechanism is part of the section in the palm of the hand, and all you do is twist the grip to switch speeds.

Aluminum or Steel?
Where you live can play an important role in selecting the type of bike that will suit you best. If you are near the coast, where the salty ocean air rolls in, you may want to consider a bike with aluminum because aluminum is more resistant to rust than steel. Steel frame is slightly heavier than aluminum, but traditionally provide a little smoother ride than aluminum because of stiffness aluminum. If your bike will be kept outside most of the time, and you’re near the ocean, we would recommend a bike with aluminum rims with alloy.

Rims either steel or alloy (aluminum). Aluminum rims provide a better braking surface, especially when wet than steel, and stainless steel grille gives good strength. The rims also mix a little lighter and more resistant on rust than steel. You will find that there is more aluminum on the bike, the higher the price will occur, as the alloy material is more expensive than steel. For bicycle with coaster brakes, and no handbrakes, alloy steel braking surface vs. will not apply.
