Parts on cruiser bikes are built on standard bicycle demensions. You should be able to get a replacment 26" alloy wheel from any bike shop, just tell them it's for a "beach cruiser" style bike, but they'll probablly charge you ~$50 for complete replacement 26" wheel. A steel rimmed wheel will cost less, but it will rust.

Though it is said site to store are not assembled, this is not true. If you order the bike and sent to the store and call in they will assemble the bike for as it is seen as customer satifaction. My store offers free assembly but i have heard of stores charging so I would double check before you try. If they don't assembling a bike is not very hard and a fun DIY.

The seat post diameter on my is 27.2 mm

The seat post is only about 8" long making it too short for me (I'm 6' with 34" inseam) so I bought a replacement seat post from a bike shop (400mm x 27.2 mm) so that I get a more comfortable fit for my height and leg length.

Mine came fully assembled and I actually rode it out of the store. Just be careful that the tire is firm with air as riding with low air in the wheel will pinch the inter-tube and cause a flat. If there's a auto center at the store just ask them to top off the wheel until it's firm... or possble use a bike pump from the bike parts section of the store or the automotive parts section of the store to firm up the tire.

Yes, you should be able to ride the bike after the store assemble it, however you may need to make some adjustment to your preference once you get home.

answer 1
Mine says 40 psig on the tire I have.... but I alway use an "educated thumb" and just squeeze the tire to ensure it's hard and firm, rather than use a tire gauge. You don't want to ride it with low pressure or you'll "pinch" the tube and flatten the tire.

It is recommended that you inflate between 35 - 42 pound.

Mine's an anodized Orange in bright sunlight. The women's mixee' frame is purple. Most manufacturers only make one color to each the manufacturing process. They may change the color each year to make the bike look different.

I had a question re: color as well, and as far as I could determine, the women's bikes are only blue and the men's bikes are only red. I actually ordered the men's bike because I really wanted red!

My brother is 6'1" and 355. If ridden on streets and not hopped up or down curbs and potholes, he got along fine with one like this. When he went on teh trails at the local lake, the rear axle was not up to the job. I built a custom rear hub with caged roller bearings and a 5/8th" stainless steel axle. If just riding gently, this is marginally ok. Anything else, look for a stouter rear end.

I own one. The seat is not comfortable for anything but the shortest ride. The bike is only good for flat areas.
The seatpost needs to be higher. I will replace both the seat and the seatpost. The frame holds me, it will hold you. I'm happy with it for what I need. The price was right.

I'm 5'2" with a 30" inseam and I can't stand flat-footed even standing over the center bar. BUT I don't stand flat-footed even with my mountain bike. That's not a requirement for me, but I'm a motorcycle rider, too. Unless I must stop for two or three minutes, I never put my feet down.

I am 5'6" or 5'7" & 156. I have an inseam of 32," i was able to fit both feet flat on the ground with the seat all the way low. I think the flat was even a little bit up and i still was able to put both feet flat on the ground. Good luck!

26" cruiser style bicycles usually come equipped with one piece Ashtabula style cranks that require 1/2" threaded pedals but this bicycle is one of the exceptions. This bicycle comes with the three piece (the crank arms are removable from the bottom bracket) cranks which require the 9/16" threaded pedals. The 9/16" pedals give you far more variety and options for choosing what suits you than the 1/2".
