Utility matched with eye-pleasing aesthetics of the latest city bike from Brooklyn Bicycle Co. takes the beach cruiser to new places. With 3 speeds of gearing hidden inside the Shimano Acera hub, you’ll be able to go to the beach and back. The chromoly 4130 steel tubing means a lighter, stronger frame and it comes with braze-ons for adding racks and water bottle cages. Color-matching fenders and chain guard are included; commute, here you come!
Precision sealed-bearing hubs mean longevity and a smoother ride, even in the salty air of the coast. To that end, the bike has a chrome-plated chain to fend off corrosion and is fitted with many alloy components, rust-proof and lighter weight.
