I didn't think I would like a cruiser bike. I wanted a mountain or multi-use bike because I think they look cooler, but after trying out a few in the store, I realized that they weren't really a good fit for my short arms. I tried out several cruiser bikes and liked the way they felt (the seat is WAY more comfortable than that of a mountain bike), but they didn't have any colors that I really liked. I left and went to another store and found this one and thought it was perfect. I barely sat on it before deciding it was the one for me. Surprisingly, it fits in my Mazda 2 hatchback with the back seats folded down, though it would be an easier fit if I took the front wheel off. I would recommend this bike. I rode it for almost 2 hours that same night and didn't have any issues with it.
