CRUISERS offers and insider's look at the latest and greatest cruiser bicycle styles and designs, and provides tips on how people can trick out their own bikes to proclaim their individuality. It also tells the unique history and development of cruiser bikes, from their pre-World War II origins to the popular California beach bikes of the 1970s to today's retro-chic bikes. Without style, a bike is just a bike, a means of getting from here to there. With style, the bikes people ride become a defining stamp of who they are. The modern cruiser-with its oversized balloon tires, solid steel framing, shock-absorbing suspension, and custom colors and modifications-is a testament to individual style. So saddle up in the seat of a classic bike and rediscover the smooth rolling freedom.
