Beach cruisers come in many varieties. From the very simple single-speed with a coaster brake models, all the way to fancy multi-speed bikes with dynamo front hubs and integrated lighting systems, all are designed to be the ultimate comfort rides. Beach cruisers can be a great form of self expression too. Some cruisers showcase beautiful paint jobs and unique styling cues. Island Bicycles features the Electra Townie. With its super laid-back styling and patented Foot Forward design, the Townie is arguably the most comfortable bike on the road.
Kid’s bikes are as individual as kids themselves. With four different wheel / frame size options, there are kid’s bikes available to suit everyone from the first time rider using training wheels, to the transitional rider getting ready to make the leap to full-sized adult bikes.
A hybrid is exactly what it sounds like – a mix of a road bike and a mountain bike. The result is a bicycle that’s suitable for general-purpose riding over various types of terrain, which is why most hybrids tend to be used for commuting. Hybrids are great bikes for exercise as well. With multiple speeds and more aggressive geometry, hybrids are designed to cover more ground more quickly than ultra casual beach cruisers.
WOMEN’S SPECIFIC BICYCLES
Island Bicycles is proud to offer bicycles from Liv, a company whose bikes are designed by and for women. Liv is woman-powered. From their founder to the global team behind the brand today, Liv is the only women’s brand that makes their own bikes in-house from start to finish. Liv makes women’s specific bikes for just about every discipline of cycling from high-end road bikes, to mountain bikes, to hybrids, and even women’s specific e-bikes!
Although Key West famously has no mountains, (or even hills for that matter!) lots of folks still love to get off road for a bit of exploring. For those so inclined, Island Bicycles offers a lot of choices. Hard tail, full-suspension, pedal-assist eBikes, and all points in between.
PEDAL E-ASSIST BIKES
eBikes are likely the way of the future. They’ve been around for quite a while, but in the last few years battery and motor technologies have advanced at an incredible rate. Pretty much all bicycle manufacturers offer one form of eBike or another, with many putting forth complete dedicated lines of multiple eBike choices. Island Bicycles carries more eBikes than any bike shop in the Florida Keys. Pedal-assist cruisers, hybrids, mountain bikes, and even eTrikes too!
