For as long as I've seen them around, these
have inexplicably been a source of great annoyance to me.
Was it the sheer cutsie-ness? The pastel colors and basket that made the girl look like she came straight from a Doris Day movie?
Was it the fact that everyone and their poodle had one?
Or was it simply the fact that I just don't like the way they look?
Maybe all of the above, just a little. But I think I've finally figured it out. You see, the handlebars are very long. So when girl rides a beach cruiser, she doesn't lean over the handlebars, as on a normal bike.
Not only does this make her look like Doris Day's evil clone. It brings to mind another biker. One who also sits up very straight, rides and old-fashioned bike, and looks extraordinarily pleased with herself.
