Firmstrong makes retro-styled cruiser bikes that are built using modern technology and high quality components. They are affordable bikes that are designed to be ridden anywhere. They also look great, and are aimed at people who are already involved in cycling as well as those who haven't cycled for decades, and those who have never been on a bike before.
The company is based in California so it is not surprising that its heritage is steeped in the beach cruiser-style of bike. And while it is a relatively new brand of bike, it has already built up a reputation not only for style (all of its bikes are works of art) but also for quality and exceptional rider comfort.
The focus of its design and manufacturing is on three main areas:
• Premium quality - in materials, parts, and production techniques • Modern design - applying modern style to a classic style of bike to improve the overall experience • Unbeatable value - they make affordable bikes although there is no compromise on quality
Firmstrong Bikes are made with steel frames and come in a variety of different configurations. This includes single speed, three speeds, and seven speeds. The single speed options have coaster brakes instead of handbrakes, which mean you stop the bike by pedaling backwards.
All the bikes in the range also have a comfortable, upright riding position, as wells as fat tires with thick treads that make it easy to ride on almost any surface. This includes sand, dirt, grass and pavement.
Firmstrong is not a brand of bike with a racing heritage. This sets it apart from many other brands of bike whose focus is on making road bikes, TT bikes, track bikes, mountain bikes, and cyclocross bikes. For these companies lifestyle bikes are often made as an afterthought, and make up a small part of their overall range. For Firmstrong, on the other hand, lifestyle bikes are the only type of bike they make.
Firmstrong makes bikes for men, women and children. There is a single style for each category, but you can get a range of different gearing options, brake set ups, sizes, and color variations.
The women's bike has even more color variations than the men's. In terms of design and style it also has a comfortable seat and wide, high handlebars. It has a frame with a lower step through, though, and large mudguards over the front and rear wheels.
The kid's bike is a single speed with a coaster brake and is available as either a 16-inch bike or 20-inch. It is based on the adult models so has high and wide handlebars, a unique frame design, and a big, comfortable seat.
As well as bikes, Firmstrong also supplies a range of accessories.
As Firmstrong is not involved in the manufacture of bikes for racing, it is not involved in athlete or team sponsorship's.
