Comfortable, cool looking cruiser.

Pros:
Smooth Riding, Comfortable Seat
Cons:
Tires Not For Dirt Roads
Best Uses:
Road Riding, Smooth Bike Path Riding
Lights work nice (EQ) once you get up to riding speed and generate steady power. Pedaling is a pleasure as your feet are slightly forward, unlike traditional bikes where your feet are right under the seat position. For a cruiser type bike, it is not too heavy, which makes pedaling easy, and 7 speeds is sufficient for bike paths. If you are 6' or taller, get the tall size.
