We'll admit it: there really aren't too many 6 speed cruisers out there. They somehow got lost in the shuffle, overshadowed by little brother 3 speed and big sis 7 speed. Kind of like that middle-aged child that really doesn't get much attention but still decides to show up anyway.
Our 6-Speed Cruisers offer better mobility for those who ride long distances or on rough terrain. A bike’s number of speeds depends on how many gears a bike uses. We offer several speeds; 3 speed, 6 speed, 7 speed, and 18 speeds to help fit your biking needs. The ability to change gears allow for best power options for your current riding conditions. Low gears make riding uphill easier as its less strain on your joints. Although you are not gaining speed, you are pedaling at a greater rate to keep your momentum going. A higher gear is used for riding down hills. Less pedal action at a higher gives you the ability to keep a higher speed and stay in motion with your tire rotation. Although multi speed bikes offer greater mobility, they can be complicated for some users. If you are a casual rider check out our single speed cruisers. They’ll get you to where you need to go with comfort and ease.
Choosing your gear preference depends on the type of riding you’re planning on doing and the type of terrain you ride on. Six speed bikes are great for larger hills and someone who needs to ride longer distances. There is no derailleur on a three speed cruiser as it only uses one sprocket. The fully enclosed, internal hub is at the rear of the bicycle and needs little maintenance, allowing you to get up and go and easily tackle minor hills and downward slopes. Bikes with higher gears are for the more avid cyclist. The gears have derailleurs, multiple sprockets that have a lever that moves the chain when switching gears. They require a little more upkeep, but will get you rolling with ease for long treks or over more harsh terrain.
