The Shimano 7 Speed Gear System which is the best option for seven speeds on a cruiser. 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. Gear one is the easiest to pedal and gear seven is the hardest to pedal, meaning gear one should be used for going uphill and riding at a slow pace and gear seven should be used for downhill and high speed riding. The gears make the Urban Man 7 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 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.
