Cruisers are perfect bikes for casual bicycling around your city or the park. Cruisers were extremely popular in the United States from the 1930s-1950s due to their style, comfort and heavy durability. These bikes offer a classic look with larger tires and higher handle bars for sitting in an up-right position to take in the view around you.
Folding bikes are designed to be stored away - perfect for travelers who need to store their bikes on boats, trains and vehicles - or for city commuters. Folding bikes have the same sturdy structures and support, yet are light weight enough to be carried up flights of stairs to your apartment.
Unicycles were once seen only as a vehicle of amusement in parades and circuses, but current day they are used by cycling enthusiasts for sport and entertainment. With only one wheel and a special hub designed so the axle is a fixed part of the hub, balance is the key to success while riding Unicycles.
Standing Up-Right Trikes
The main beauty of the trike is that balance isn't required to ride. Trikes are preferred for adults who suffer from back or knee problems because it has a "step through" feature and the design offers a more comfortable ride that eases the body. Similar to cruiser bikes, adult standing up-right trikes offer a higher handle bar and heavier frame for a smooth ride to take in the views.
Some adult trike riders find that if the seat is lowered, it lowers their center of gravity. This allows them enough comfort to ride at higher speeds. Recumbant trikes also offer a wide seat with a comfortable backrest, therefore adult trikes are becoming more and more popular due to their versatility and comfortability to older adults.
