How do I know what size cruiser bike to get?
Typically, a 15-inch frame should fit adults that stand up to 5.5 feet tall. Frames that range between 15 inches and 21 inches are perfect for adults that stand between 5 and 6 feet tall.

How do I choose a cruiser bike?

Are cruiser bikes good for exercise?
Cruiser bikes are a great way to keep active while you’re on vacation in a very low-key way. Bicycles are naturally a low-impact workout. Not only can you get a full-body workout but you also strengthen your muscles, increase flexibility, fight fatigue, and reduce mental blocks.
Is it hard to ride a cruiser bike?
The cruiser bike is notoriously heavy, making it difficult to ride this type of bike uphill. But while a lighter frame can make it much easier to ride a bike uphill or pedal faster, it can also be a huge downfall if you’re riding in inclement weather or windy conditions.
How far can you ride a cruiser bike?
A beach cruiser typically has a top speed around 15 miles per hour. If you have an electric bike, you can crank it up to 24 to 28 miles per hour. Of course, these speeds aren’t going to last forever. Pedal assist mode for most electric bikes lasts for about 40 miles.
Why do cruiser bikes not have brakes?
The cruiser bike also traditionally didn’t include brakes in the design. Instead of the standard hand operated brakes, the cruiser bike is equipped with a coaster brake. Pedaling backwards would slow the cruiser down sufficiently. The harder you would pedal back, the harder the braking force would be.
Is a 24 inch bike too small for a woman?
Women whose heights are 5.4” and below can ride a 24-inch bike. This is because the frame is the right height to accommodate the length of their legs and will ensure they find it easy to peddle. It also means that you need to get a smaller bike with a sizeable frame.
