Oh my goodness, where do I begin. I started searching 5 months ago for a cruiser bike. I knew it had to be pink. I also wanted multiple gears and some mechanism for storage. I searched all over the internet and read reviews on a ton of bikes. I started watching the sale prices on this bike when I decided it was the one. The lowest I've see her for is $189.99, but I got her when she was $196. However, I signed up for the Shop Your Way and they had a coupon going for $15 off!! I did the in store pickup at my local Sears. I have a large sedan car, but she didn't fit, even when they tried to take off the front wheel, so I had to leave her at the store and come back with a friend's truck. Make sure you have a bike rack or truck when you pick her up. This bike is even more stunning in person that it was online. The hot pink has this gorgeous sparkle to it. I like the gears because I can put it on a higher one and get a better workout. I seriously grin from ear to ear every time I see my bike. It's extremely comfortable. The cargo rack on the back can carry up to 22lbs. The bike comes pre-assembled and they did a phenomenal job. I didn't have to make a single adjustment. I would HIGHLY RECOMMEND this bike to anyone in the market for a cruiser. I could not have dreamed up a more perfect, stylish ride :)
I have not purchased or ridden a bike for 20 years, so I hesitated to buy this bike. But after reading many good reviews, I decided to give it a try. I have been jubilant with my purchase. The bike design is comfortable and so easy for a woman to keep the balance. The only adjustment was to lower the ?seat, but that is because I am a petite person. Other than that, no further adjustment is needed. Sears personnel were friendly during the store pickup and when I needed the adjustment for the seat post. Big thumbs up for the Sears sports team at Montgomery Mall Maryland! I appreciated these kind retail personnel. They made the purchase experience pleasant!
This Catalina bike rides smoothly. I bought a Schwinn basket and attached it to the front of the bike to carry the water bottle and misc items. The basket feels secured and looks good on the bike. Since then, I have enjoyed riding in the park with my daughter this summer. All of a sudden, I am happy again like people say, "a kid with a new bike".... yes, I am happy riding a new fantastic bike after 20 years not riding a bike! Sears should continue to carry this model, Catalina made by Schwinn. I do not see newer women bike models come close the quality of this Catalina design.
The cycle worked awesone and I would recommend it to anybody
As a senior needing more exercise, I wanted get a bike. I needed a bike that I could step through easily, and with a larger seat to be comfortable to sit on. This bike is perfect for me! It is easy to get on and off, and I like that it is very stylish (girly). :-) I plan to get a cute pink basket for the front handlebars so I can carry my cell phone and water bottle with me.
