Default Re: HUFFY Cranbrook vs it's Schwinn Twin

I like the Cranbrook. I bought one last year and still like it. Steel frame and all. Now, I would say that if you're looking at bikes right now at Wal-Mart, check out all the bikes. They have some that have the thicker 12-gauge spokes and some with 14 gauge spokes. I think the Cranbrook has 14 gauge spokes on it. IF I were to do it all over again, I'd shop for the wheels with the thicker spokes. I changed mine out to Husky wheels and the difference was substantial. You may pay 20-30 dollars more, but, I've got that much just in the rear tire replacement on my Cranbrook. Plus, they've got a wider rim also.
