    Anybody ridden a Monster Cruiser?

    Saw one of these chained in front of Home Depot recently, and I've been slapping at my wallet ever since. Don't need another bike; got nowhere to keep it; it's useless and it weighs 72 pounds(!), but I sort of want one. I see myself moving to Hawaii and riding it along the hard sand....

    No...but I want one bad for our weekly cruiser ride. now if I only had the spare $600. Currently ride a Dyno Deuce cruiser and a Fuji cruiser tandem and they are a blast for tooling around town.

    That looks cool, but what about a Swiss Army Bike.

    A whole lot more tradition and 2/3 the weight!
    We have nothing to lube but our chains.

    Cool, but when talking cruiser bikes you don't worry about weight.

    yes i have.

    it's a thrill for about the first 10 minutes, then the novelty wears off. they are quite slow.

    Might be good for riding around the Home Depot, but that's about it....

    Coker also makes a unicycle using one of those big wheels. And they make a pretty cool looking high-wheeler replica using that wheel too. http://www.coker.com/store/customer/...cat=303&page=1
