I need a Bike

I want a cruiser bicycle with gears.

I am having a very hard time finding one.

I have gone to about a dozen stores over the past two weeks in Riverside and all over Los Angeles looking for a damn bicycle. I have come close to finding what I wanted a few times but... *sigh* I need a fuck'n bike. I do not have the time to schlep all over southern california for a pinche bike.

I am open to other bikes. Really, I just want a bike that will give me a comfortable ride. I want a big cushy seat. I want to be able to put my hands on the bars without giving my wrists carpel tunnel syndrome. I want gears on my bike because I will be riding it on hilly terrain. I don't want to be hunched over, I prefer to sit upright.

I am not asking for too much in a bike, am I?

Any advice?

Know of any great places where I can get a great bike?

Yes! Try http://www.chubbyscruisers.com/shop/

They'll ship from the south bay for $20 which includes assembly.

They moved. Now they are closer at
Chubby's Cruisers
2047 La Cienega Blvd
Los Angeles, CA 90034

I've done web research on the best prices, and this place has them. Plus, the selection is great. You can also buy your horn, basket and tassels here.

My girlfriend got her bike at Chubby's. She loves it, their prices are pretty good.

I made a mental note to come back to this 'cause I've really been wanting to buy a bike for a while. That place looks like it's really close by my apartment too! Yay.

.....and did I mention that it's woman owned? That's another plus.
