Also I am going to go with the Huffy Cranbrook as well. After looking on here in the forums, seems to be the best starter bike I can find that's a reasonable price. However, I've seen others elsewhere warn that the fenders, especially the front one is a death trap and to either reinforce it or remove it. I will also be having some hands on help as well as this forum too. So I am feeling confident! I'll be sure to post pics once it all gets here and I get her going.
Probably over 50% of us on the site have/had a Cranbrook as their starting point.......myself included. Just make sure that everything is tight and the bearings are well lubed with some high temp grease. I always seem to have some Lucas Red 'n' Tacky that works very well.
Also, make sure to add a front brake to your rig. Coaster brakes are kinda sketchy at the speeds these bikes can go.
Best of luck on your new adventure!!
