    "That's where we want to go, way down in Kokomo." Ride down to the boardwalk and through the sixties on the 27.5" Men's Kokomo from Schwinn, a classic cruiser bicycle with a modern new twist. High rise chopper handlebars, simple single-speed riding and color-matched fenders are reminiscent of the vintage cruisers you probably whipped around town on as a kid in the sixties and seventies. The twist? Big machined aluminum mag wheels that add a fresh new look and added durability to the wheels. You'll turn heads around town, on the bike path and wherever else the ride takes you. Front and rear alloy linear pull brakes are an upgrade on the coaster brakes typically found on cruisers. Those classic ape handlebars are easier on your back, while the Schwinn Quality padded cruiser seat helps soften the ride. The Kokomo comes with a limited lifetime warranty for as long as you own the bike. Go down to Kokomo with this fresh take on a classic cruiser from Schwinn. Enjoy the ride.

    Now go back and read Kingfishes' post in your best stereotypical announcer voice... "Hey there swinging guys and gals..."

    Ok I didn't see this thread when I searched. in the old Walmart thread.

    I saw that as well and I really like it. I wouldn't mind one with 24 inch mags.

    You can get 24" skyway mags .

    Would be cool , not too common yet.

    I should have said single speed like the Kokomo has. I looked at those in store and they look too wide because of the multiple speed it has.

    Looks like a 4th grade boys drawing of a bike, but to each their own I guess. Those look like wheelchair wheels.
