The Urban Man 21 Speed Beach Cruiser is a great bike for those riders that want a little something extra from their cruiser bicycle. The 21 speeds, front and rear derailleurs, and handbrakes make the Urban Man more versatile than a standard beach cruiser. Hills and long distance rides will be suited well for this beach cruiser bike.
The Urban Man 21 Speed features a Shimano 21 Speed Gear System, a Shimano Tourney Derailleur, and RevoShift Twist Shifters designed to let you cruise, climb, and coast, even on the steep hills. It has a derailleur which means the chain changes sprockets to shift gears, when the chain moves to a different sprocket the bike changes gears. The gears make the Urban Man 21 Speed ideal for many different types of riding, it provides the great, classic, trendy design of a beach cruiser with the functionality of any hybrid, road or mountain bike. Also, it keeps riders in the comfortable upright riding position cruisers are known to provide. The twenty-one speeds are a great feature to have if riders want to commute, get some exercise or ride over 15 miles in any one trip. The speeds will give riders a variance in resistance they can switch back and forth from during rides to allow themselves to take resistance on or off their legs. This gear system also features a rear freewheel, so riders can pedal backwards freely while riding.
