Why get a Beach Cruiser Bicycle?

Beach Cruisers are probably the most comfortable bicycles you are ever going to ride. The Main components that make those bike “the cruisers” are:

  • Large and balloon-like tires on 26-inch wheels
  • Wavey handlebar
  • Double-spring extra large saddle
  • Funky frame style
  • The upward and laid-back riding position

Which Beach Cruiser Bicycle to choose?

Although the following beach cruiser bicycles look and perform well in their overall designed environment, there are still some aspects to choose from. The main difference would be the quality of components and the number of speeds or gears certain model has.

1-speed / 3-speed / 7-speed – which one to choose?

Single speed or the 1-speed models are the most common for classical beach cruisers. It is easy to spot one by looking the rear wheel and noticing only one sprocket while the multiple gear one has a derailleur and to count the number of speed one has it is mostly easy to by counting the sprockets the rear wheel has

Why get a Single Speed beach cruiser bicycle?

Single Speed Beach Cruisers are an easy way to go. They are usually cheaper, in most cases maintenance free and there is a back-pedal rear brake option inside the wheel. I like the fixed gear idea by its simplicity, and it looks more like a cruiser than any other bike. Cruiser is for cruising, but when you are in need for the gears – you are probably not cruising anymore.

Why get a 3 / 5 / 7 speed Beach Cruiser Bicycle?

If you are a sort of person who likes anything with all the extras and options to choose from, a multiple gear version is for you. A variety of gears comes in handy when you live in a hilly region or just like to choose the pace to flow.

Steel or Alloy Frame?

Since you are buying the bicycle for very light riding conditions like the cruiser is designed for – you don’t really need to worry too much about the difference. Both Steel and Aluminium frames are very durable though the aluminum a little less

Difference between the models for men and women?

The main difference would be the upper tube – like for any other bicycle frames – men’s bike has a straighter tube while women’s bike has an arch bending lower.

Firmstrong Beach Cruisers

I have personally owned a firm strong beach cruiser and with a mountain-bike background – I can guarantee they make both Firm and Strong bikes for sure. During to long time I’ve had my Firmstrong, I constantly got was amazed by the amount of “beating” this bike could get overtime – maintaining its rigid performance. FirmStrong bikes are special the way, that they are way more durable than their price range compared to many other bike brands.

handy on rainy days. Fenders not only keep the dirt and water splashing on your knees and back – but they also give the bike a nice and elegant look. The following model is quite universal for wider tires and really gives the nice finish on the design, definitely a worthy extra.

26-inch Fenders in all possible colors to match your bicycle frame color.

For an obvious reason to prevent your bicycle from theft. I recommend getting a code-lock so that you don’t have to worry about a key, but code-locks again are known to be the weakest way to lock your bike. U can try getting a U-Lock, Chain or anything else as well.

Cable lock


Great to store your wetsuit, water bottle or whatever comes in your mind. Besides surfing, it can carry almost one full shopping bag of groceries.

For obvious safety reasons, and you don’t want to lose your cool.
