I really want a bike - something that works with my extremely short frame and arthritic wrists. I think this Schwinn Cruiser might be the ticket. I could ride it to work, to the pool, etc. and it would fit my fat a$$, my short arms, and my numb hands. It's available at Target for $129, or I could get a "nicer" brand at a local bike shop for $249. Either way I'm buying a groovy set of back baskets or a front wicker variety. There are a couple of used cruisers on Craig's list but the current owners are about an hour away.
What is your vote??
Of course, if the oil companies and speculators weren't so greedy I could afford gas and could therefore keep my lazy butt in my minivan where there is air conditioning and cloth seats. Then again, I wouldn't have such a lazy fat behind if I rode a bike more often.
