We were really impressed with the cool styling of the 700c Columbia Streamliner Men's Bicycle. It has thin, lightweight wheels, which made it easier to ride, and less weight to pedal around, which can be a real problem for a lot of beach cruiser style bicycles. There are generous fenders which is a must for any puddles or wet weather riding. You can see the additional wire frame around the rear wheel, which is sturdy and adds a cool, hipster touch. That extra strength is really handy, because it helps support a serious rear rack, which includes a spring loaded holder thing, which is great for book bags and the like. What is more difficult to see from the photos are the sleek, old-school pinstriping on fenders and frame, and the logo on the front of the bike. The seat is well cushioned vinyl, in a retro leather finish, as are the rubber hand grips. Further, the bicycle is comfortable and easy to ride, with smooth pedaling and, again, it's great to not have all the weight that goes with many full sized cruiser bikes. Unfortunately, our bike was missing a bolt for the front fender, which we replaced from a local hardware store; I assume (hope!) that's pretty rare. Assembly is straightforward -- see our video -- but requires several tools, including large hex-L wrenches. If you have the option to purchase it assembled, you might want to do that, unless you know people who enjoy assembling bikes, like we did.
