answer 2
I've done some research, and yes, a gas engine can be mounted, but it's not advisable for 2 reasons: 1. It would void your warranty; 2. It would, under Florida law, RECLASSIFY your bike as a MOTOR VEHICLE, which requires a driver's license and registration. As for electric motors, which, under both state AND Federal law, do NOT require a license or tags, they, too, can be mounted on your bike. However, since the front fork is NOT pure steel (it's made from an alloy), hub motors may pose some risk of fork breakage from high torque, and may also void your warranty. But if you MUST use an electric motor, your best bet is a tire-friction driven system, which (though not as fast as a hub motor) is easier to install (does NOT require tire and wheel removal/replacement, but DOES require removal of either the front or rear fender, depending on where the motor/friction drive is mounted), and is somewhat more economical. Hope this info helps! ;-)

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.

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.

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 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.
