Elgin, JC Higgins, J.C. Higgins, They're All Sears bikes, and all freaking awesome!!  I love that the Firestone bikes are all the same frames too... It's too bad there isn't more information out there about these bikes as they totally kick ass.  Yes, they're not quite as good quality as a Schwinn, but they're absolutely serviceable and personally I find they fit taller riders a bit better.  One really could ask why AREN'T these bikes ruling the world about now?!?

Vancruisers Turns 5 Years Old!

Happy birthday!!

Well, it's official - Vancruisers has now been up here sharing our local cruiser scene with the world for a full 5 years!!

In that time I've seen a lot of people come and go, and I've definitely learned a lot about running a site like this.  It's been a pretty intense learning experience overall from how not to step on people's toes, learning how to keep a group together and happy and learning how to keep the site interesting / relevant without taking up too much of my time.

My original goal for Vancruisers was to have many different writers covering all kinds of things, unfortunately we haven't quite gotten things to that level yet.  Part of the problem is usability on the site - I think we've made some definite progress on that but there is still work to do.  My vision is to one day have a "type - click - publish" sort of workflow which I think would help.  The hard part has been keeping all the great content we've built up over the past 5 years while still continuing to move forwards!!

Anyhow I'm glad you're here, pull up a chair and make yourself at home!!
