26" 3 bar cruisers - who all is making them?

Looking for a cool manufacturer for a modern 3 bar cruiser ala Laguna or S&S. I've found:

http://www.santabarbaracruisers.com/mens-frames

http://ratrodbikes.storenvy.com/collect … ames-forks

Any other builders out there?

Would prefer to keep the spend around $450.00 for F/F. For the prices Santa Barbara is asking for I'll just buy a vintage Laguna.

My favorite is the WTP Avenger.  I've been wanting one for a while but could never find one at a reasonable price used.

Seems like a good deal but, all the parts on it are el cheapo and, if you want to change the stem to something cool, you're screwed. hmm I do like they're chromed though.

Yep that’s what kept me from purchasing a f/f. My 3yr olds balance bike uses a 22.2mm, odd. hmm

My bad. Got my numbers mixed up. Is it really a 22.2 tho? Seems they made it to be old school compatible.

Re: 26" 3 bar cruisers - who all is making them?

Yeah, cause who doesn't want to jimmy rig a brand new bike?hmmlol

Anyway, my point was, the complete is only $650 but, the only halfway decent part on it is, the taiwan-made frame. I'd sooner buy an SE.

Re: 26" 3 bar cruisers - who all is making them?

New message from: atomiccycles (788)

"The fork is 22.2 mm, this way you can run either diameter. the older one with a shim and a different wedge and the 22.2 one."

Kind of funny they would go 22.2 but guess it keeps the adjustable stems an option for us old farts lol


It's yours. Do what you want with it smile Planting seeds is better then tearing up trees.

I made a couple of tweaks but it rides smooth as glass.
