Bicycling isn't always about zooming at top speed. Sometimes it's about enjoying the scenery and making a statement. Whether you're heading to the beach, a local trail or simply touring the neighborhood pulling your toddler in a child trailer, cruiser bikes are a stylish way to go.
Jason Edwards, sales associate at the Richardson Bike Mart in Richardson, Texas, said that riding a cruiser bike is more of a social activity than an athletic one. "The best thing about cruiser bikes is that they are simplistic and old school; typically, they have only one speed, so there are no real maintenance issues," Edwards said.
