24"? Ouch. That's a might tall for me! LOL
Thanks for checking!
Think you are misunderstanding measurement. Down tube from head tube to bottom bracket is 24”, seatpost tube is 18”, standover is about 31” to 32” depending on where you measure. I wear 30” inseam pants. The top bar is fine for me at my 5’-10 1/2” height.

Oh duh. Yes, I meant seat tube. I wear 30" inseam pants too, but they drag the floor when I take my shoes off. LOL
Thanks for the measurement info.

If someone wants to try to run down the tires they are marked Chao Yang 27.5x2.50. I have bought replacement tires direct from Pacific Cycles perviously, not sure if that’s still possible. Support: 800-626-2811

I sent an email to the company in China.

If I get one, I'd like a front handbrake, but it looks like the rim edge is curved, not made for a brake pad.
Don’t think a rim brake would work, as the rims are curved. You’d have to come up with a disk brake mod. Or you might be able to make vintage spoon brake. There is a brake mounting hole at top of fork yoke.
I’d call the service number I listed for pacific, except you might be closer to China.

Someone said not to let this bike sit out in rain. It has alloy rims, SS spokes alloy front hub, Nexus rear hub, aluminum frame and seat post, aluminum stem, aluminum bars, alloy cranks and chain ring, steel fork and chainguard, alloy pedals, steel hardware items. It should resist moderate moisture as well as about any bike.
About to put a Brooks B135 seat on it. Just about doubles the value. Can’t take it with you.

Along with the Brooks, I still think BMX bars would sit well on that bike.
Maybe some low rise...never used them on a bike. We’ll see. Thinking of changing stem to allow for 31.8mm clamp, then beefier bars.

Added the Brooks saddle, adjusted height and leveled it out. I went for a few test spins and made adjustment fine tuning changes. Now I think I’d like a layback post or I need to flip the bracket. A few new lake shots.

Go buy one, have fun playing with it! Sadly amazon has raised the price.
I flipped the seat post bracket seems good now!

If I had room for another bike, I would order that bike for $176. You can't get a cruiser like that that is American made or high quality for anywhere near that price. Especially with the Shimano 3 speed with coaster hub.
I rode a Diamondback Edge in ND regularly, same kind of quality, Pacific made, but it held up well for all the riding I did with it. Still won't give up my American made Hawthorne though.
