Re: Beach cruiser!!!!
There are disc brakes also. But from the sound of things you won't be able to afford them right now. Another thing you can do is look around (and ask friends) for junk bikes that have front "V" brakes on them. Free parts are always good. If they work probably all you would need is to replace the brake pads. The above is how I got my free "V" brakes. Now I have a disc brake though.
Good luck and ask as many questions as you need.
