What makes a cruiser bike?

Perhaps one of the most iconic parts of a cruiser bike is the swept back handlebars which provide the  rider a comfortable grip while seated upright.

The tires on a cruiser bicycle are also iconic and tend to be oversized or “balloon” tires  which help cruiser riders feel even more comfortable and in control of their ride.

Cruisers are known for their coaster brakes and single gearing, but more and more cruisers are offering hand brake and speeded options to allow the cruiser rider to go to more places than ever before!
