Default Re: Which bike to build? Help!

Thanks much F Rod 81.

I'd love to build with the single speed Schwinn Cruiser I've got but I'm a bit leery of going 30-35 mph only to be able to tame it with a coaster brake. I guess I would need to add a front disk brake? Any recommendations on brands and what do they cost?

I have no idea what my style is and don't care. Not concerned with what the bike looks like or how it rides. My main purpose is to learn how to build one. So, all I'm really looking for is a bike that's easy to build and as safe and reliable as possible once it's done. I'll figure out my style and preferences on my second or third bike I figure. So, I'm stuck between building on a 7-speed Schwinn Point Cruiser and a Schwinn single speed cruiser.

C'mon guys, anymore advice? I'm totally in the dark here - I need some guidance!
