Kind of get an idea on what goes best with what on these bikes.. because im trying to get one of these badboys since i seen bikeguy joes in action.. bikes r sweet! any suggestions?? im all ears!! thx
Yea cool. Actually i want a lil bit of all fast,comfort.. ect but yea he willazkronic said:decide how you will ride ie: do you want fast, comfortable, stylin' ?
find a bike you like, and follow Joe's lead, it looks like he will be a big help to you
enjoy, it only takes a 5 minute ride to make break out the ear-to-ear smile for me
oh ok thanks manbamabikeguy said:The absolute easiest bike is a one-speed coaster brakes cruiser.
But if you want hand brakes (yes) and variable speed for occasionally peddling (yes) then a 3 speed bike OR a 7 speed bike is good enough.
Any higher than that and you have doubled the derailleur troubles, etc, and for the noticable difference vs. future maintainance/tweaking, 3 or 7 speeds is just as good as 10/14/18/21/24 speeds.
This is especially true if the engine is going to operate over 95% of the time, like mine do, I never shift out of high speed (7th)
Also in the COMFORT catagory, foam handlebar grips are a lot better for long distance than any rubber types. I hate that ribbed rubber feeling, unless I'm wearing gloves.
