Single speed and good for flat terrain. If you have rolling hills, you'll either get a good workout going up, or you should consider a multi-speed bike so that you can trudge up the hills.

answer 3
Mine (October 2010) came with short "bobbed" fenders (doesn't cover the back wheel completely). The picture shown on the internet site didn't show fenders, but mine has short fenders on front and rear wheels. Due to their size, I don't count on them to keep wheel spray off me in raining weather, but they'll do the job on wet spots on the pavement and keep the dust off me.

answer 3
Mine had a "tractor seat" on it. It was about 4" thick with both foam padding and a spring suspension undercarrage. The seat on mine must be about 8 or 9 inches wide. I've been riding bikes for about 55 years and I don't think you'll find a wider seat unless you would special order one from a custom manufacturer.

Mine (October 2010) is an anodized aluminum orange in bright sunlight. I'm guessing the manufactuere changes the color frequently (each year?). Mine also came with short fenders over the wheels so the picture on the internet site doesn't look quite like mine (mine looks better... everyone who sees mine is jealous and want to take it for a test ride.)

Still Have Fenders?????????

The red one did. If it does not that is a deal breaker especially since the price has gone up from $84.99 to just south of $100. What has improved with this deduction over the last year-Nothing from what I can tell.

How do I order parts.

I bought the bike 7 months ago. the back wheel locked up and I found that the sleeves that hold the brake bearings had broken. Where can i purchase parts to repair it? I suppose that I will need a new back wheel.

answer 2
You don't need a new wheel (unless the spokes got broke or the rim was damaged in the process). Most bike shops will fix this "coaster brake" problem for a nominal fee. On a slow day, they may also do it for free for good community relations. Also check to see if there's a bike club in your area. Most people like me would be happy to help.

Answers
answer 1
It is like the old street tires. Approximately 2" wide with a close raised diamond pattern tread. decent traction in most conditions without the singing of the offroad tires. The rolling resistance is much better than the rough treads, too.

weyerhauser
 - Northeast Oklahoma
answer 2
It's a beach cruiser bike with low street tread (think running shoe tread). It's not a knobby tire like a "mountain bike" and it's not a slick or smooth tire.
answered 3 years, 11 months ago
By
BRWally
 - Baton Rouge LA
answer 3
Typical cruiser bike tires - wide tires, with continuous tread (not the knobby kind as on mountain bike tires). They are about 2 inches wide. Rides great on pavement if properly inflated. Rides well on small gravel. It is not an off road bike. It is a beach cruiser bike.
