Loving... Cruiser Bicycles

Guys, I sorta want a bike. Not the hard core moutain kind of bike, but the comfy, cruise to the store and buy flowers kind of bike...

They're just so cute. I'm thinking maybe I can trick myself into exercising ;) Maybe.

If you have one, do you love it and what kind do you have? I'd love some recommendations!

Electra Cruiser from United Cycle

  1. Hey Christine
    Thanks for dropping by and the kind words. It's funny, my husband and I were looking at this bike last night. My bike is relatively new but already needs repairs. I'm thinking about about trading mine in .... (it's a Townie) I thought they were good bikes but I wasn't too impressed. Can't wait to see what you end up buying. Have a great weekend!!!

  2. Hahaha... I have a cruiser bike (which I LOVE). It has a fabulous basket and a super comfy seat... but it never really tricks me into exercising! I ride it often, but I don't think the pace I go can in any way be considered 'exercise'!

    1. Haha, this cracks me up. Don't say that, any movement is "exercising" in my books!

  4. HI Christine - I've found you through Dajana's blog. :)
    A co-worker from work's wife has this bike and rides it to Southgate LRT every day for park and ride. She loves it, and I've covetted it from afar. It's super cute.

    1. I'm so glad you let me know, Emilija! It's awesome to hear from someone who owns one. I totally want a basket too!

  7. Oh...I have been loving these too. I really, really want one. Wishing I hadn't bought a new bike just a couple years before these came back in style.

    1. I'm a sucker for cute things, Amy, but I'm sure your bike is equally functional, haha.

  12. Love my cruiser! I got it on Craig's List but it was originally a Target Schwinn. Buying it used was a no guilt purchase for me because I didn't know if I'd like it, and I felt like buying it used would help me justify the expense in order to try it out. :)

    1. That's so true, I'm definitely going to check second hand. Thanks for the tip!

  13. Mine is straight up vintage - from the shed of a friends parents cabin and hadn't been ridden in almost 40 years. Makes me feel like a total hipster (which I am not), but it is SO fun to ride. Also, since there are no gears or disc brakes, it's slightly dangerous too, which, yayy! haha.
