Vacation, beaches, and warm nights - summer is here. If you’re still unsure about what you’re going to do to occupy your time during these three glorious months we’ve got just the idea – Cruiser Bikes!

Made for the perfect easy ride that goes hand in hand with a cold beverage and a short cruise to the beach, lakeside, or park. Cruiser bikes, also known as beach cruisers are bikes that combine balloon tires, an upright seating posture, a single-speed drivetrain and straight forward steel construction with expressive styling.

Not fully sold on cruiser bikes? We’ve got 5 reasons why you need them this summer.

  1. Summer Is A Time For Cruising

Cycling enthusiasts, we know you love a good fixie, we do too, but something about the heat of summer makes us want to slow things down and take it easy. Enter, cruiser bikes. Put on your swimsuits and flip-flops and take the scenic route to the beach, it’s time for a little relaxation.  If your life is as fast-paced as we think, you’ll be thanking us later. After all, taking it easy is a self-care must, and we’re all about self-care.

  1. Stay Fit On Vacation

Cruiser bikes are a great way to keep active while you’re on vacation in a very low-key way. Bicycles are naturally a low-impact workout. Not only can you get a full-body workout but you also strengthen your muscles, increase flexibility, fight fatigue, and reduce mental blocks. Most cruisers don't have gears you can shift to help you up hills, so your best bet for blasting calories is to take a path with a little bit of incline, providing greater resistance. But for those of you who like a little help from gears, we also provide geared cruisers! So go ahead and have that extra ice cream. After all it’s hot and you’ve earned it!

  1. Beach Party? No Problem.

What’s the best thing about cruiser bikes? Plenty of space to install a bike rack! With all the hanging out we tend to do in the summer, a bike rack is the perfect addition to your summer essentials. Are you in charge of bringing the beer or snacks to the beach bonfire? No worries, there’s room for that in your easy-to-install bike rack.

  1. Wide Tires

Perfect on gravel and beach roads, wide tires come standard on cruiser bikes and we absolutely can’t imagine a summer without them. Go from side-walk to boardwalk with ease as you make your way through summer.

  1. Comfortable

Last, but certainly not least, cruiser bikes are comfy. With a wide seat and wide tires you’ll feel like you’re riding a cloud through your summer vacation. Our Beach Cruiser comes complete with an extra comfort design.

Still not sure if cruiser bikes are for you? Check out The FG Cruiser, a new breed of bicycles, where urban and beach mix. The FG Cruiser® is the most advanced cruiser in comfort, design, and performance. This bike is more practical and efficient than your typical Cruiser, yet more comfortable than a Fixie. Hitting the beach by day, or the city by night has never been so smooth.

Five Reasons Why You Should Take Up Swimming
Five Reasons Why You Should Take Up Swimming

November 02, 2021

For many, swimming is a pleasurable past-time activity that helps them relax and unwind after a tough day or week of work. On the surface, swimming might seem like a low-intensity activity that involves just the use of arms and legs to wade through the water. However, that is not entirely true, as swimming is a full-body workout that involves most muscles in the body, and has other perks.

With E-bikes Booming, Are Their Batteries a Threat to Our Environment?

For many years, many economies of the world have been dependent on fossil fuels as their primary source of energy. This heavy reliance on fossil fuels has had a toll on the environment. We have observed drastic changes in climatic patterns resulting from global warming, due to high levels of carbon emissions from engines running on fossil fuels. This has led to the adoption of electricity as a more environmentally friendly alternative source of energy.

We have had a boom in the number of people using E-bikes in the recent past. What makes these bikes unique is the fact that they run on an electric motor powered by lithium-ion batteries.

With this influx of E-bikes, the main question is whether or not these lithium-ion batteries can sustainably meet our energy needs.
