    Singlespeed beach cruiser with internal hub riding trails ?

    Hello,

    I was at Santos riding and I passed a guy going the opposite direction riding what appeared to be a beach cruiser with an internal rear hub. It looked like it had a threadless headset as well and flat bars. Since he was riding with a female companion I didnt want to stop him but now I wish I would have. Is this something that someone makes now that is a new version of the old beach cruiser ? Or maybe this guy just fixed an old one up. It was a singlespeed and even had teh small rounded tubes that went from the top tube to the downtube. Sweet!

    Was it something like a Retrotec frame? They make some pretty badass custom cruiser-like frames.

    Thats a wild ride, Normbilt!

    HappyBrandon, thanks! It looked just like that. Went to the website and the bike was identical. I want one as a backup bike!

    Aquaholic...that is truly sweet!..Truly.

    I have a masi Soulville 7 that i have taken on modest jaunts..It actually does rather well but I'm not jumping or anything, just enjoying a smooth saunter about the trail.
    I dont have a pic but this is a very close approx.
    I have removed the fenders and I dont have the drum brake, mine has a SRAM I-7 IGH and a coaster brake.

    I saw one leave ahead of us one day at Santos. By the time I got to the freeride park, he was collecting himself after a bad wipeout. He then proceeded to tell us what bikes should and shouldn't be on the jumps. This bike was complete with fenders and chainguard.

    did he say "and my bike obviously is in the latter category!"

    rider does more than the bike, i've seen guys ride road bikes down the up escalator. back then i could barely ride down stationary staircases longer than a dozen steps without getting twitchy.
    (yeah i did a lot of urban riding for a while)

    i'm FAIRLY sure that riding beach cruisers offroad is nothing new.
    If steel is real then aluminium is supercallafragiliniun!
