JustBicycles.com giving away FREE BICYCLESometime back we shipped a cruiser to Gerry up in Canada.  Here is a snipet from what he had to say. 

A while back, Sue from justbicycles.com contacted me to add some of my articles to their website.  Being a cruiser bike maniac myself, I was happy to see that they had a nice selection of cruisers, even a tandem, among the other regular bikes. The prices were also very decent.  Anyways, I was going through their online bicycle catalog and I found this bike, The Chief. It was on sale at $140, shipping to Canada was $65, with duties and exchange rate, the total is a bit over $CDN300. Not bad considering that we don’t have too many cruisers around these parts and the price for something like this would be a lot more.   The bike was shipped with Fedex and I received it within 7 days. The bike was very well packed and the only loose thing the box was the seat, but it was very well protected for the trip. I have pulled hundreds of bikes fresh out of the box while working for stores and bicycle shops and this one was very much up to standard.

Here is the bike Gerry reviewed:  http://justbicycles.com/bike_details.php?item=The%20Chief

To be fair and find out if it was easy to assemble, I enlisted my daughter to take on the job. Now Sarah is not unfamiliar with bike maintenance, I have taught her well. But she never had the chance to assemble a brand new bike together. Don’t think for a minute that I gave her the job just because she’s a girl. Sarah can tune a bike, flip a boy bigger than her over her head and she sword fights with the toughest of them in Live Role Playing.

The first thing to do is to get that bike out of the wrapper and get your tools ready. You’ll need a set of Allen keys, a 15mm socket wrench for the wheel, a 15mm open ended wrench and/or an adjustable open ended wrench. Cut the tie wraps holding every thing together and remove the wrapping paper over the frame by hand. The only thing to watch for while unpacking the bike is the front wheel. It is slipped into the left crank arm and you must slide it out carefully. Install the front wheel and pull out the kickstand so you can work easily for the rest of the assembly. . . .

All and all, this bicycle doesn’t have a cheap feel to it. It is of solid construction and the ride is amazing. I have to say that I have fallen in love and it’s a good thing that my other bikes are not jealous! I’ll be making some modifications to this bike in the coming future and I will keep you posted on the progress. The first thing I want to do is go for a Shimano 3 speed Nexus coaster hub…and a suicide shifter. 🙂

Til next time, ride safe and Godspeed.
