Default Anyone considering buying a Cranbrook Please Read First

It is no secret that I hate coaster brakes. They must be modified to even work. I don't consider them enough braking power for the speeds you will be running at. I even refuse to build anyone a coaster brake equipped bike. In general I hate them.

But there is an alternative. Not sure when, but Walmart has dropped the price on the Schwinn Landmark from $149 to $99, plus tax. You can even get free shipping to your nearest store. Or for a small fee ( for me 4.97) get it delivered to your front door. . .

Steel frame
Multispeed, if you ever pedal it's nice
Front and rear brakes. Linear but better than a coaster brake and no mod needed.

smaller gauge spokes
1 color available vs the cranbrook's 4

For the $10-20 more, Please consider upgrading to a better bike.
Best flat protection ever. Watch the video Here.
