I was a little skeptical about riding a bicycle being 6’5” 250lbs. My wife wanted to get some exercise that was fun, enjoyable and leisurely since we’re empty-nesters and don’t have to run kids everywhere. I just wanted something simple and not too expensive so I wouldn’t be upset if it didn’t work for my size. My wife found Retrospec online and I liked the idea of a single speed beach cruiser. Price was very comparable to other companies we saw online (can’t find a bike in the stores) so we decided to give it a try. I ordered the 29” in matte black (obviously) and my wife ordered the 26” purple. No mistaking who’s bike is which First, the bikes came pretty much assembled (score). We unboxed them the evening they came in and were riding the next day. Second, the ride is smooth and my 29” bike with adjusted seats and handle bars is freakin awesome! Bike doesn’t even break a sweat supporting my 250lbs and has good distance between saddle and pedals so I don’t look like I’m riding a tricycle. This is a great bike for the price and I’m looking forward to riding a bicycle again!
Love the 29" wheels and roomy frame. Bike did come with some dings from shipping but Retrospec made it right. Used this for a motorized bike build and rides great. Components arent the highest quality but for this price point and a beach cruiser it is a great deal! The only thing that would make this bike better would be an option for one with gears!
I ride this cruiser every morning. At 6'2" it is tall enough and a lot of people comment on how tall it is. I love it. It makes living in this stressful time easier because at 6am I am out riding 7 days a week and it is my meditation from the world. If you want a single gear bike that looks as good as it rides, this is it.
Good quality and great price.
He absolutely loves it!
