Firmstrong Urban Man Three Speed cruiser bike is a fantastic recreational men’s bike with gears. True to the classic cruiser design, the frame is simple and clean giving it definite aesthetic appeal.
With the added gears the Urban Man 3 Speed has added capability versus a traditional single speed cruiser bike. Shimano Nexus three speed internal gear system is one of the easiest gear systems to use and operate. All of the shifting takes place inside the rear wheel, which means no longer does the chain have to move for the bike to change gears. This means less maintenance and less possibility of future problems. The gears ride smooth, shifts easily and seamless. Gear changes happen without even interrupting the riders pedal stroke. While only three gears, each gear provides exactly what recreational riders need. Gear one will be great for pedaling faster with very little resistance, ideal for going up hills. Gear two will provide some resistance and will be great for cruising at a moderate, sustainable pace of approximately five to fifteen miles per house. Gear three is going to give the highest resistance making pedaling a bit more difficult but will allow the rider to hit higher speeds (15 – 25mph) on downhill and flat straightaway rides. For the recreational rider the three gears provide just enough variance in speeds to cover the three basics of all rides, uphill riding, cruising and flat riding, and downhill, high speed, and flat straight away riding. There is only one cable for the gear system so the design is not cluttered or overwhelming. The ride is smooth and effortless, the wide tires and spring saddle make the ride soft and comfortable. The brake system is a coaster brake, which means the rider pedals backwards to stop, just like the original beach cruisers.

I love mine. I always liked huge bikes. This one is pretty, feels and good to sit on. The handle bars allow me to sit up straight, not curled over like a squirrel. Three speeds are quite enough and work well. I put a bell and a kick stand on mine. I just could not be happier about a bike.
Man this is an excellant bike. You're ad says the bike can go 15 to 25 mph. However I got the bike to go 35 mph on a flat level road. Oh and before I forget can the 3spd be replaced with a nexes 8 spd? I've also got the springer fork on it , a bike seat from Italy, a sun suspension seatpost ,you're guys fenders and 2 classic led head lights (1 single light an 1 7 led light) and a classic rear fender taillight,suuuuuppppppppeeeeeerrrr comfortable.
The bike arrived in great shape and am excited to do the final assembly, which looks very simple and straightforward.
Everything about this buying experience—from your post-sale communications re: Order and shipping, to the packaging and timely delivery of the bike, to the clarity of your assembly instructions—has been outstanding.
I am an Amazon shopper and a big fan of beach cruisers, and i need a beach cruiser to handle hills. I currently have a 1 speed firmstrong (womens) but hard to go uphill with. I bought a 7 speed awhile back but i hate the maintenance on bikes with anything more than 1 speed, and 7 speeds are really only good for off road since they dont go that fast, and i am not looking for anything to ride on the road like a 21 speed. So i did research and i found out 3 speeds have less maintenance and can handle going uphill. I looked all over Amazon but all 3 speeds were sold out for the beach cruisers. I found this site by google search. They sell all firmstrong bikes. Firmstrong is the the best bike and really light, but the womens 3 speed was sold out, so i got a mens 3 speed, grey. I just love it. XDS has great support too. I got my bike within 5 days.
This adventure started because my bike was stolen, and here comes xdsbikeco.com with a similar bike shipped in perfect condition a week after placing the order. The circumstances sucked but this vendor exceeded expectations. Thanks for making a bad situation great!
