Default Re: Aluminum or Steel

A vintage beach cruiser frame with MTB or BMX components may provide both.
Some guys add the banana seat, sissy bar and ape hangers. It's your build.
Newer steel beach cruisers will also take plenty of abuse.
Aluminum will work, but you must be more more careful with the installation.
There's no doubt that Felt has created a beach cruiser rennaissance with
their unique cruisers. However, I would use something less valuable on my first build.
Spend time in the photo gallery to see which bikes require more effort and hassle to install engine kits on.
