My 2015 Electra Cruiser 1

The 2015 Electra Cruiser 1 in Red Metallic
Meet my newest addition to the fleet, my 2015 Electra Cruiser 1, which I purchased from Breck's Bicycle Shop in Owensboro, Ky. on Jan. 9, 2015.


It's just about the prettiest shade of red I've ever seen, and being a metallic red, the paint looks to be about a foot deep. It was bitterly cold (18 degrees with a 25-mph wind!) when I brought it home, so there's just the one picture for now. More will be added!

DETAILS:
  • Red metallic paint with black lettering and stripes
  • 26 x 2.125" WD "knobby" tires (26x1.85 Michelin Protek tires, installed 1/27/16)
  • Black aluminum wheels (with stainless steel spokes as of 2/14/15)
  • Single speed Converted to 3-speed internal-gear hub, 2/14/15 
  • Coaster brake
  • Steel cruiser-style frame
  • Purchased at Breck's Bicycle Shop in Owensboro, Ky. on 1/9/15
