Default Re: quality of cruiser?

I looked at the Huffy and I wasn't impressed with the construction. Heck, they didn't even close up the ends of the cantilever bars where they weld to the stem. I have no personal experience with the Micargi but in the past there have been some negative comments made here about their frame integrity. Seems there were some that developed cracks. But, I've also seen some nice Micargi builds and they have some good looking bikes at reasonable prices. As for the Schwinns; I'm on my second Jaguar, $149. at Target and on sale often for $124. I got one for $99. because of a few scratches. It is a good solid bike with the only area I found deficient being the kickstand mount. I reinforced both of mine. That's my input. Let us know what you decide.
