Believe me, not a good idea. 20 years ago maybe, but these days, no.

Retro in the dictionary sense, my wife rides a Skull Skates cruiser. Somewhat less 'bling' than my prototype but she isn't sad enough to take a photo of hers :lol:

After my wife's confession of never having changed gear on her by nu nu (fnar fnar!) I though it time to rebuild it removing the excess weight that was redundant! Theme is er... Red?! Coming together nicely!



Big gearing though - I take it that there are no hills anywhere near you?

4th bike for her now, all others were either badly set up or the wrong size. This one just needs a damper cartridge in the forks, and the rear wheel axle sorted and it's good to go.

1995 Jamis Dakar Team

(Quite possibly bought from the OP on ebay some time ago with really nasty parts hanging off it, not saying he put them there just how it came)
