    A perfect day in sunny SoFla consists of eternal sunshine, endless palm trees and a light sea breeze as you pedal through the sand. While the essence of this scene is Pinterest-appropriate, the sight of a 6-speed mountain bike rolling along Ocean Drive kills it for us. But fear not, nostalgic warriors, an iconic vintage model has made a reemergence. Nothing says MIA living quite like the laid-back, chilled out, beach cruiser!
