I absolutely love my Cruiser! I took it to new levels with some upgrades that I think are certainly worth it if you are interested in some easy upgrades. I added the TerraCycle idlers which really quieted the ride down to practically no noise. Incredibly quiet on a smooth road. I also added the Schlumpf front drive and the new Alfine 8 speed internal drive. Along with a trio of Marathon Plus tires it is fast, smooth and a blast!
