The Urban Man is a well built, stylish men's cruiser at an affordable price that has proven it will last. It has a great option if you are just getting in to the beach cruiser lifestyle. The dual-spring seat and the extra-wide handlebars provide a very comfortable riding experience. The 26" whitewall tires add another stylish element to this bike. Lastly, double clear coate finish provides for a high-gloss look making the color of the bike really stand out and shine.
This review is from: Firmstrong Urban Man Single Speed, Matte Grey - Men's 26" Beach Cruiser Bike
Pros: sturdy built. arrive on time.
Cons: I did research and figured out I only need a bike allowing me to go from A to B (1 mi) without bending my back as if I will win Tour de France. So I chose this one, as least I get a reasonable sit position.
after my first trial run, two big issues come up: 1) there is no hand brake; if I want to brake, I need just pedal backwards -- smart, or, just akward? I don't feel confident that I can brake adequately in an emergency situation. Back pedal means I cannot provide precise, gradual braking. 2) the horizental bar prevents me to get on bike easily. I can do it as I am over 6'10'' tall, but the bar is uncomfortable and plain annoying.
lessons learned: NEVER buy a bike unless I ride the model in person. it is not a CPU.
Advise to bike manufacture: design a comfortable, walk-replacement bike, without the non-sense sitting style making the bott-above-head. if you get stuck at the drawing board, here is a hint for you: take a flight to Asia, learn the best style from there. best part: a comfort style does not come with patents.
