Default Re: HUFFY Cranbrook vs it's Schwinn Twin

The WalMart Huffy Cranbrook's do have 12 ga. spokes for 2010 as well as wider steel rims and a higher flange style front hub. I've built two this year. Same carppy rear coaster brake. The Micargi I built starting end of '09 has slightly better rear brake and alloy rims. Not much better. Still think Wally bikes are a good place to start. Cheap and you'll get to learn a lot by constant repairs. At least you won't spend a bundle to see if you like the Hobby! Hey 'mapbike' I'm also 5'10" and 200 lbs.. Know what you mean about Cramped on a Cranny!
