what do you think is better a mountaion bike at $60.00 or a crusier at$99.00 the crusier has to have some kind of ajustment my knees almost hit the handle bars and it feels like I`m real close to them the mountain bike is a little smaller and a seat that would ride up your ass so a new seat is a must an the fact that being bent forward might be a problem both are steel frames crusier is the moon dog at wallys and the mountain is at target thanks every one for your answers to all my other questions later

There are tractor style seats that are very inexpensive and comfortable at k mart and wall-e- world. A $5.00 scrambler style handle bar solves the hunched over problem.

I recommend front shocks of some kind and a shock absorbing seat post.

I have a mountain bike and a cruiser. I much prefer the cruiser. It's a lot more "oldman" friendly.................:D

I am partial to cruisers but its your bike and the decision is yours. I would say that whichever bike you choose, you want it to be comfortable and fit you well. You will be spending alot of time on your bike and if you are not comfy it will take away from your ride. I'll also say from personal experience that a bike that is too small will get old very quickly and you won't enjoy your ride nearly as much...Kelly

I though I'd add my 2-cents here what ever you guys or gals buy for a bike weather its ridged framed or not e-bay has front supenssion forks for sale for around $15.00 to $20.00 includes shipping. the problem is getting them to fit your bike.
Using the inner goose neck parts off a wreaked bike that will match your bike you can weld up a stem to fit the new fork to go on your bike its a little bit of work but I've done 3 and glad I did makes the bike very nice to ride.
Also changing out seats and handlebars makes big changes for the better. I better add that smooth treated tires will make the ride more enjoyable I inflate them to the max pressure.
I also like the foam handlebar grips that sell for about $2.00 to $4.00 the cheaper the better.
Ride it like you stole it!:ride2:

I heard that the springers made for Schwinn 26" will fit the Kulana...that's what I picked up at Spooky's.

I picked up an old 24" girls cruiser for $5 at a local auction and put the bars and spring seat on my free mongoose mountain bike. Had to make shims for the smaller diameter bars to fit the neck with v brake cable running through.
Very comfortable now and looks good with the rubber sleeves.
