The first thing we should be asking ourselves is, “what do we want in a beach cruiser bike”? So let’s think about this for a  minute. What do we want?as we find the best beach cruiser bike,  and, yes, the pun is intended!


This is what I’ve come up with;


-Comfort


-Ease of Use


-Structure


-Reputation


-Storage


-and I’m adding this one, it may not be one you like, but it’s one I’m going for.


-the cuteness factor


-what others are saying – reviews from people who bought this cruiser bicycle and are really riding it.


 I’ve looked at what is offered out there and I think I’ve found a quality beach cruiser. I’m looking at schwinn bicycles, specifically, a Schwinn 26” Lakeshore Women’s Bike.  It seems to have everything I am looking for.  This looks great for riding around town, to the beach or riding instead of driving to my friend’s house for a good workout.  Let’s review it.


 Comfort


This looks like it will be very comfortable to ride. It has easy to reach handle bars  in classic cruiser steel, which won’t give you pain from over stretching your arms while out for a leisurely ride.


Rubber block pedals for a secure fit without slipping


Schwinn’s classic cruiser oversized padded dual spring saddle seat, comfy for your tush.


Ease of Use


Besides looking pretty spiffy, this beach cruiser is easy to ride.  It comes with  easy to change gears with a SRAM grip shaft in a 7 speed drive train which means you have a speed for riding up a hill, less huffing and puffing to get up that hill when it’s in the right speed.  Plus a speed for coasting down that same hill, maybe with your arms free in the air pretending you’re “on top of the world”, ala Leo DeCaprio. One for a harder terrain and one for just sailing along plus 3 more that you probably will never use but it’s nice to know you have them just in case.


Structure


This Schwinn beach cruiser comes in a 1955 classic centilever design, pure nostalgic style in a steel cruiser frame. Schwinn has been around since 1942 so it also comes with the Schwinn quality.


It also has alloy linear pull hand brakes for easy stopping.


36 hole alloy rims that are rustproof and will conquor any terrain.


KMCZ-50 black chain with new feather style chain guard.


26” size spokes


Schwinn 26” whitewall tires


Cuteness Factor


This is my favorite part.  This cruiser is adorable. It definitely has the cuteness factor going for it with it’s colorful front and rear fenders to keep you dry when you decide to splash through puddles throwing caution to the wind. Plus it comes with a rear rack for storage when you ride  by an impromptu flea market or such. Although I don’t think it will hold that “can’t live without” etarge.


Adding to the cuteness factor is the color choices.  This cruiser comes in champagne or purple!! I love purple!! My first big girl bike was purple!   Ah, the memories….


This is a sure winner for style. We’ve got the fantastic color choices, the full wrap fenders, the rear rack for storage and the classic 1955 Schwinn design.  Add the Schwinn reputation and quality and we have hit a home run!
