E-Bikes & Bikes Customised to You

Women looking for a bike to cruise the city streets or the beach often debate between purchasing the sixthreezero Around the Block and the Schwinn Ladies Perla 7-speed cruiser bicycle. While both bikes might look similar on the surface, there are some differences you might want to consider if you’re pondering the 2 rides.
Around the Block
Say hello to a new best friend. The sixthreezero Around the Block Women’s 26-inch Cruiser Bike is a super comfortable and low-maintenance bicycle, the kind you want to take with you everywhere. It doesn’t give you a lot of hassles and it’s ready to go whenever you are. Biking has never been easier.
The Around the Block is a 26-inch single-speed cruiser that’s stylish and cool. It features a 17-inch matte steel frame, 2.125-inch tires, and a cushioned saddle seat. This bike is the ultimate ride for a leisurely cruise to the farmers market, library, park, coast or work. It was designed for comfort in mind. Some say this bicycle is like a couch on wheels.
We don’t want to go for a joy ride, commute or exercise on a bike that’s made poorly and has issues. That’s why we’ve updated all of the features of the standard cruiser on the Around the Block. It’s fun and easy to ride on this bike that suits most lifestyles and locations.
Schwinn Ladies Perla 7 Speed Cruiser Bicycle
While certainly one of the more popular women’s cruiser bikes, the Schwinn Ladies Perla 7 Speed Cruiser Bicycle doesn’t compare to the Around the Block in terms of universal comfort. It’s made of sturdy construction; it features a steel cruiser frame, and this bike’s twist shifters and rear derailleur provide a smooth and quick ride.
But, many riders who are shorter have complained that this bike is just too big and it’s not comfortable. The Schwinn does offer Alloy V brakes so you can stop efficiently, and it features full fenders that make riding pretty enjoyable in all types of weather. However, the padded spring seat doesn’t do for comfort what the Around the Block built-for-comfort design does.
There’s more to comfort on a bike than just a padded seat. When you’re choosing a cruiser bike, think about whether or not you’ll be able to sit up straight in an ergonomic position and comfortably get to where you’re going, even if it takes you an hour to get there.
Why Choose the Around the Block?
Consider that sixthreezero lets you test your Around the Block bike to make sure it’s the right bike for you. We want you to enjoy years of riding and the only way to do that is to let you take your new bicycle for a test spin, and then you can decide if it has found a permanent home with you. When you buy a bike from sixthreezero, including one of our women’s Around the Block bicycles or any of our women’s bicycles for sale, we know you’re making an investment in terms of money, time and lifestyle. We want your bike to be the absolute best fit. We’ll make sure that it is.
