I got an early Father’s Day present from my family and it is a Firmstrong Chief from the great people at beachbikes.net. This is not a paid advertisement although they are sending me a bell because I wrote a review. But it has nothing to do with this site or the stuff I write here. Anyway, it got here fast and was easy to assemble. The only problem I had was someone put stickers on it. Easily taken care of.
It has one speed and that’s all I can really handle. With more speed bikes I can never gure out what gear I should be in and as for going up hills I would rather get off and walk then pump away like a fool gaining an inch at a time. The bear riding a tiny circus bike hits a little too close to home.
I’ve taken it out for a couple of spins to begin the get off my ass program. Almost forgot how much I love riding a bike. Coaster brakes as well to round out my return to 9 year old transportation do over.
