Default Re: Micargi Vs. Huffy

Man I wouldn't trust a low end bike wheels at 35 mph. You can buy some better quality bike wheels form you LBS and not spend too much. I bought some 26" MTB rims for a little over $100. They are disc break or cantilever break compatible. I put them on a Trek cruiser classic ($250). rode the bike around with the original rims before I motored her up. the thing just sucked. put the MTB wheels on and wow it was great. After new triple clamp fork I almost didn't motorize cause it was too fun to ride peddling the thing. thing rides solid and sweet with the upgrades. BTW spent almost a grand on the parts. So if your wanting to go cheap you'll have to stick with Micargi or huffy or schwinn. But I would recomend spending a few extra dollars and getting better quality.

I'm interested in doing an Electra bike. they have one called the striaght 8. Real cool, run you $600 or so for it though.
