Yesterday, I posted about my Good Deal Day, which included a new bike for me! Well, today, said bike went back to Walmart. The frame was... well, length wise, it wasn't built right. It was far too short- every time I tried turning, the handle bars hit my legs (and I did raise the handle bars as far as they could go). The front wheel also hit my feet when I turned, too.
Yesterday, they had 2 cruisers that I saw in my price range- the one I bought, and a bright, candy pink Schwinn for $99. I am not a candy pink kind of girl, but I was willing to try it in the store- well, same problem. The handles kept hitting my legs. :(
After looking around for a bit, I saw it- all the way on the top shelf of the 3 layer bike shelf. A bright, aqua blue metallic, modernized looking cruiser for $99. I had to find someone who could get it down, and cringed as this poor guy had to single handedly get it down with a ladder, and hold it one handed as he got off the ladder.
I tried it out, and rode it down the aisle, despite how amusing I must have been to other people. It was perfect. The handle bars were forward and up, like those old U shaped handle bars bikes had in the 80's when I was little (only, not so big). The other two cruisers had handles that came to the side, which contributed to them hitting my legs, I think.
See how low the frame goes? I don't have to lift my leg too high to get over the frame. It was VERY easy to get on and off of. I love it! Now, I just need a big wicker basket for the front of it. ;)
