The Point Beach Cruiser is a classic, recalling the better days of Schwinn. The bike is comfortable and easy to ride. Assembly was very easy, being mainly the mounting of the front tire, handle bars, seat, and pedals. The frame is tubular aluminum, relatively light weight yet very solid, and the crank is a solid, one-piece design, usually found on more expensive bikes. The tires seem to be a better grade than found on most new bikes; they track well on both dry and wet pavement and add to the ride comfort. The only real detraction is the gauge of the metal used to make the front and rear fenders. Unlike the original American made version of this bike, the metal is quite thin and will bend easily if care is not used during assembly, but it does serve to keep the overall weight down. My wife and I bought a number of bikes as part of a family activity plan that doesn't involve TV. While this bike is obviously never going to win the Tour de France, it is more than up to the challenge of everyday use. The 7-speed derailleur makes the Point Beach Cruiser much easier to ride than a single-speed cruiser.
