At our bike shop upland we sell all kinds of bikes. No bike has more enduring popularity than the beach cruiser.
beach cruiser is a bicycle that was designed for recreational beach riding in the thirties. The cruiser has an upright seat position, basic steel frame, single
drive train, and balloon tires to resist sinking into soft terrain like sandy beach. Cruisers enjoyed popularity from their introduction in
the 30's through the 1960's.
The 1970’s-1990’s saw a break in cruiser sales as the two-car family became
the norm, and fewer people were riding for pleasure or running errands around
town. Since the mid-1990’s, they have made quite a comeback, with today's interpretation often keeping the classy retro looks. Currently they
are one of the hottest bicycles on the market, appreciated by many kinds of
riders for casual or short rides. If comfort, affordability, mechanical simplicity, and plenty of style are your
priorities in a bicycle, a beach cruiser may be just what you're looking for.
