Beach Cruiser Update 3...

Well, the laid back seat post for the Beach Cruiser arrived today. I installed it pretty quickly, and I like the way it looks and feels.

I ended up flipping the mounting hardware for the seat over, as well, which allowed the seat to sit down about another half inch or so, which I think makes it look better than it did with just the new seat post.

I know that these pictures are from different angles, but I think you can get the basic difference between the old and new seat posts.

Here's the bike with it's old seat post.


And here's the bike with the new seat post.


Notice how the seat is several inches farther back and a couple of inches higher?? It makes for a much more comfortable and natural riding position. With the old seat post, the handlebars almost felt like they were too close to you when riding. Now with the new seat, they feel like they are a perfect distance away.

Here's a picture of me on the bike with the old seat post...don't mind my look, it's freezing in the garage and I was trying to get done as quick as possible!!


And here's one of me on the bike after I put the new seat post on.


Notice how much farther back it looks like I am with just this simple modification??

Overall, I'm really pleased with the seat post. It looks great AND provides great comfort, so that's win-win in my book.

I'm also really happy with the way this whole project continues to move along. Awesome.

The fenders really highlight the whitewall tires as well, yet another feature that makes it one of the flashiest and fun-looking cruisers around Affordable Cruiser Bicycle.

Avoid leaving your beach cruiser out in the rain or outside overnight if dew is a possibility for the next morning.

The Toyota Previa's spaceship-like interior is roomy and comfortable. Fit and finish is very good. Driver's place is comfortable; great visibility. The third-row bench seat splits in half and folds up easily against the sidewalls making a lot of space for cargo.

When we sell a Previa we get calls years later from customers who say they put 30,000-50,000 miles on the vehicle and its been great.I never ever got those calls selling any other vehicle.
