New: Take part in the October Giveaway for the Haven Bicycle Co. beach cruiser


Purchased this bike today from Amazon.
#1
Thought I would try it out. Free shipping and a 79 cent Canadian dollar. Reviews were all good.
Bought the xlarge frame one in black $224.99 Canadian or about $175 us dollars.

What do you think?

Update.
I see the counter says 111 views, if the counter works properly? and no replies. So not much enthusiasm for it I suspect.
I will photograph the bike after I put it together. Reviews indicate the brake pads and the pedals need upgrading and I will put my comfort seat on it and ride it. Reviews also indicate it to be a fast bike. (runs free wheel or fixie). Anyway I am off for my daily ride.

Looks like a fine bike to try out a fixie on the cheap Lots of color schemes to choose from too. I like the black and white one myself. For me the fun is building one from scratch. Though at a much higher price tag, no way around that. Perfect bike to get your feet wet with Elmore! Please post some pics, would love to them

Will do PK.

I have been fixing and selling quite a few bikes. However the number of bikes for sale on Craigs List and the Internet is just incredible.  I have to sell them between $90 and $125  on Craigs list to compete with other hobbiests and they have to be functioning 100%. Parts are expensive here and shipping costs are high into Canada other then on Amazon which has distribution centres in Canada.

New Bikes usually go on sale in July for clear out.  So  i will keep an eye open for a new road bike with 24 speeds or so.

Good choice. At $175 it's a great bicycle you've purchased from Amazon. In fact I'm planning to buy that similar one very recently, to gift my little brother.
