The Huffy Cranbrook is a men’s cruiser bike available for $79 at Walmart. It is a single speed comfort bike with 26″ tires, a steel frame, and a classic bicycle look. It looks like an old retro bike your grandfather would have ridden.
The bike is classy and well designed. It is no-frills, but that’s part of the beauty. The paint is a glossy cranberry color and the accents are flat black. The bike is all metal – including the fenders. The single-speed drivetrain features coaster brakes for easy stopping.
Functionally it is exactly what you would expect for a beach cruiser. At $79 it is very affordable and looks and rides like it costs much more. The only downsides are the cosmetic quality of the welds. They don’t look good at all. They seem to be structurally sound, but look like they were hurried. I can only assume that they will likely be the source of future rust as it’s unlikely, based on their appearance, that much attention was paid to ensuring they were properly prepped for paint.
Overall this appears to be a decent bike for the money and I look forward to using this as a project bicycle which includes an 80cc 2-cycle engine kit.
