    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!

    Today’s cruisers pack all that timeless class (gigantour wheels, single or three-speed, opportunity for an adorable woven basket) with a lot more style and a lot less poodle skirt. And best of all, most can be customized to your liking. From candy red wheels to mint green seats, your two-wheeler can be as colorful as you imagine.

It's a small detail, sure, but it makes a read
