►We love riding bikes with friends, meeting new people, exploring new places, seeing the world from the seat of a bike, and drinking in all that life has to offer.
We here at Kickstand are dedicated to spreading this passion and the cruiser lifestyle. We invite you to join us. It takes more than a good idea to launch a magazine. We've assembled a cast of characters with decades of experience in media, design, and the law . . . All with a common passion for bikes, community and fun. Brad K. Evans - Editor & Publisher. If you own a cruiser bicycle, it’s likely that you know Brad. He is the brains and backbone of the Denver Cruiser Ride, president of the Human Powered Transit Authority, and the one crazy enough to start a magazine about cruiser bicycles and those that ride them around the world.◄

ROAD KANDY This link here was sent to me by an online friend named "Seton Watson", the same man who brought all of us here the "Autum Minion" listing. Seton lives in the United Kingdom and is a contributor to this website whenever he runs across something that he feels is appropriate. Thanks again Seton. So anyway this listing here is for the very beautiful cruiser bike i guess called "Road Kandy". Problem is, this website features the bike in flash mode with a very large view spinning around, but there is no link or way to purchase this bike. However, there is a "Store" link which takes you to a page where you can use PayPal to purchase some handlebar grips. So, hopefully in the future the website owner will include some way to purchase this nice looking unique bicycle. There is no additional information on the website, no contact info or other links . . .
RITCHEY MOBY BITE 2.1 TIRE
I have bought and used these tires. In my opinion they are a very good quality tire for the price. I recommend them for use on any beach cruiser type bicycle. Before buying these tires make sure there is enough space in between the rear "Chain & Seat stays" and front fork inside width to accommodate these larger than average tires.
Some bike frames will not accept them. They look like slick tires and hold up well. In fact, they are called a "Sticky Slick" tire but keep off any slick surface or conditions like mud or ice because you will probably fall over very fast as i once did. These tires are great for clean dry concrete or pavement surfaces only. Dry hard pack dirt might be OK. Tire pressure range is 45 to 60 lbs as recommended by the manufacturer, but i have used even higher PSI with no problem. These tire are sold as 26in "Clincher" tires and contain a steel wire bead. The most common color is black but they used to be made in a cool gray color also. One size only: 26in X 53mm (26in x 2.1in). I have linked to Cambria Bicycle Outfitters as a source for these tires. There is a slight possibility that ritcheylogic.com (Ritchey Design) has stopped making these tires and what people are selling now are the remaining inventory. I hope this is not the case.
►Wide, sticky slick for traction on rock and pavement. Side fins for traction in corners and off camber surfaces. Plush, fat casing for a smooth ride and maximum floatation on sand. This tire is a blast to cruise on. Wire bead. Black-Black. Size-26 x 2.1in 690g.◄
Pacific bicycles seems to be a company that supplies the big chain stores and other large volume sellers mostly. They are headquartered in Madison, Wisconsin. The bikes appear to be a low price and lower quality bicycle - what people call an "entry level bike". You can buy these at Target Stores, Sears, Wal*mart, Amazon.com, Toys"R"Us, eBay, etc. Picture on the right is of their "Pacific Central Park Men’s Cruiser Bike" (26-Inch Wheels) model.

I like this bike a lot. It looks to be well made. I think they only have a men’s and women’s model of this style.
►Beach cruiser bikes are a comfortable and durable bike that were at a peak of popularity in the 1950s and 60s and have become popular again in recent years. They are known for their durability, heavy duty frames and thick balloon tires. Beach cruisers have large comfortable seats and low handlebars.
They are usually one-speed, and use a coaster brake. Today, beach cruiser bikes are shipped all over the United States, and can be assembled in less than an hour with a small amount of equipment. All you need is a tire pump, screwdriver, Allen wrench, scissors, a 5/8 inch wrench and a 14 mm wrench. Cruisers are uncomplicated, appealing to those who have had enough of multi-geared bikes and technology all over the place. That's why they are so comfortable, including their wide seats. Sitting upright, riders can relax and enjoy the scenery instead of bending forward uncomfortably. Models with ten-coat paint jobs and wide fenders are especially treasured. For baby boomers in particular, the new cruisers are the bikes they dreamed of when they were young. We ship beach cruisers anywhere in the USA. You can use our shopping cart to get an exact quote for shipping. We use FedEx Ground. Shopping cart will give you exact shipping charge before you checkout.◄

So the time is now to get yourself a Phat Cycles "Phundamental Beach Cruiser". You'll get an alloy frame with generously swooping neo-retro lines, a super bouncy coil-spring-cushioned seat, one, three or six speeds (maybe a little high-tech for a cruiser, but hey, there may be hills in your 'burg), flat pedals, protective fenders and a chain guard, and rear lights for visibility on your way home from the local watering hole. The wide bar elegantly widens your turning radius, letting you look cool and unhurried even when you're going fast, and the plump tires bounce over pavement cracks with ease. It’s a fun, stylish ride, sure to grab the attention you deserve. And despite this Phat Cycles burly appearance, it’s relatively lightweight as far as cruisers go."
Cruiser tech highlights:
- 14ga Stainless Steel Spokes.
- Shock-absorbing high-volume balloon tires.
- Soft, comfortable saddles and grips.
- Swoopy handlebars.
INGLIS CYCLES It appears that most of his bikes are built for off-road racing, but maybe a person could put some ballon tires and a more comfortable seat on one of these bikes to make a very neat beach cruiser bike.
►Quality bicycles hand made in Napa Valley California. Inglis frames have traditional straight tubes while Retrotec frames have curved tubes. Retrotec is the original brainchild of Bob Seals. Bob wanted a cruiser that he could ride and race. After being turned away by everyone he asked to build such a bike, he started working on building it himself. I (Curtis Inglis) came on the scene in 1994 apprenticing under Bob for a few years. He really had an eye for beautiful things and it shows in the Classic frame design. After many years of only making the Classic, I started to branch out in all sorts of directions. First it was the Half for my girlfriend, then a twin top tube for a friend, added another tube to the twin for another friend and so on and so on. A lot of the bikes come from my living in Chico and San Francisco and seeing some really neat old bikes that really appealed to me. When I design something new, either for a friend, or myself we ride the thing to death before ever even thinking of making it a standard offering. I guess that’s how we have ended up with so many styles of the Retrotec. It keeps it interesting for me as a builder.◄
This is their Cruz 7 Comfort Chainless Cruiser model. They have a mens and womens model. These people specialize in "Chainless bicycles".

Just a quick press with your thumb moves you easily through the gears to deliver a smooth, enjoyable ride, every time.

Whether you are just getting back into riding, or want a bike with style to accompany it’s performance, the Cruz will help you fall in love with bicycling all over again.◄

HAWK CLASSIC BIKES I possibly mistakenly had this bicycle line included with the "City Bike" category on my website "TheBicycleBum.com", but people selling this bicycle refer to it as a "Cruiser" bike. If the pictures are true - it is a very beautiful cruiser bike. Made in Germany and not to many dealers in the US. However, there is an eBay seller in the United Kingdom mezorex who will probably ship to those buyers located in the US.
►Hawk classic bikes are designed to revive the motorbikes of the twenties and thirties. They combine the aesthetics of a distinct, dynamic frame and the passion for detail of modern technologies.◄
MARIN BIKES Surprise! They have a couple of models of very nice looking beach cruisers. Picture on the right is of their "Drakes Beach". Go To: "Path" Tab > Cruiser.
►Marin Bikes was established in 1986 in San Anselmo, California and celebrates its 24th anniversary this year. Its offices lie in the shadow of Mt. Tamalpais, commonly referred to as the birthplace of mountain biking and still at the heart of the sport.
On advice from his doctor, founder Robert Buckley rode a mountain bike to help heal a nagging knee injury and quickly became passionate about the sport. He founded Marin Mountain Bikes upon this passion and remains dedicated to the pursuit of the ultimate cycling experience. After 24 years Buckley remains at the helm of Marin, directing daily operations and is the creative drive behind the brand. The first model to roll off the line was the Madrone Trail. Buckley teamed up with local Marin County bicycle enthusiasts to design the bike and realized quickly that he was in the process of changing his life and the lives of many around him. Providing bicycles with introductory price points along with performance hand-built racing hardtails, Buckley and Marin Bikes toured the West Coast and the Rocky Mountains promoting and selling Marin Mountain Bikes. According to Buckley, "After more than 20 years of business, we haven't lost sight of our core values. I am committed to building a bicycle that is light-weight, durable and designed to give riders the highest quality ride for years to come. I'm proud of what this company has become." Since its founding, Marin has built its strong reputation upon a number of technological advancements including: City and Urban Bikes, clearly leading the industry and setting the standards for performance and design.◄
HARO BIKES Haro now has some nice looking cruiser bikes and priced very reasonably. It looks like they use the same frame for several different models but still look very good. The picture on the right is of their Cooper Model, possibly their latest model. Cool looking bikes.

SUN BICYCLES Sun has a large inventory of beach cruiser bikes. They are based in Miami, Florida. About 9 different classes of cruiser bikes each class containing from one to four different styles. The picture on the right is of their Sun Full Custom Orange Cruiser.
►If the Custom Cruiser Original sounds great to you but want to shed a bit of weight through liberal use of aluminum then the Full Custom Alloy will fit the bill.
By utilizing 7005 series aluminum and a custom hydro formed top tube a unique retro alloy look is achieved while still conforming to the long wheelbase and relaxed geometry established with the Custom Cruiser. You'll also find the same custom designed Sun ultra comfort web spring saddle, full coverage color matched and flared fenders, classic rubber pedals, and moto style grips. Lastly we added a three-piece alloy crank and custom chain wheel to finish out the retro looks of this cruiser. At Sun Bicycles, it’s ALL about the bike. In fact, bikes are all we do here - all day, every day. Our designers are on top of the latest technologies, materials and styles. When one of our bicycles rolls from the design board to the showroom floor, we know it is the best bike for the money. At Sun Bicycles, we search the globe far and wide for the best value in aluminum, steel, paint and components and bring them together in our Miami design offices. There, our bicycle designers put forth innovative ideas from which prototypes are made. Each aspect of each model is closely scrutinized and fixed in the redesign phase. Then it’s off to the factory for production. When a Sun bicycles exits the factory doors, it’s a bicycle we are proud of, one we'd want to ride ourselves. From the stalwart Atlas line that takes on industrial jobs like a workhorse, to the Sun Custom Cruiser that sets the standard for strip-cruising cool. Sun bikes are tried and true for a good reason: since 1972, Sun Bicycles has always been and always will be about the bike - all day, every day.◄
