HUFFY CRUISER BIKES REVIEW

The Origin and Evolution of Huffy Bicycles

Huffy cruiser bicycles are bikes manufactured by the Huffy Corporation, a company based in the United States of America, which began as Huffman Manufacturing Company in 1928. Back in 1887 the pioneer founder of Huffman Manufacturing Company, George P. Huffman, acquired the Davis Sewing Machine Company that was later transformed into a bicycles manufacturing factory. The trade name Huffman Manufacturing Company was founded by Horace Huffman Sr. (George’s Son) in 1924 and began its main operations by manufacturing and importing bicycles however this was done under the canopy of the Dayton trademark (it is worth noting that from 1924 to 1949, Huffman Manufacturing Company continued to manufacture and sell bicycles under the Dayton trademark) and produced its first Huffy bike by 1892 in Dayton.

Huffy Corporation is amongst the leading manufacturer and supplier in motor bikes, bicycles and accessories and parts with services developed to improve consumer satisfaction, standard of living, lifestyle and optimise business performance. Huffy bikes are known for their incorporation of fashionable features and construction of fit for purpose bicycles to meet the ever growing demand of the distinct set of bicycle customers or buyers.

Since then Huffy bikes have been competing with other bike designs, models and brands so as to take part in the cycling industry in the United State. Regardless of the challenges faced by the cycling industry before and during the second world war (1939 – 1945), Huffy Corporation tried incorporating into the Huffy convertible bike around the year 1942, the first training wheels.

The first bicycle to bare the Huffy name was the bicycle created for children and came with a rear training wheels and footsteps. This bicycle was known as the Huffy Convertible and was developed in 1949.By 1955, sweet sound was brought to two wheels with a radio built in the tank and on the rear carrier a battery pack and an antenna was also built into the Huffy Radio bicycles. The Huffy logo was created in 1959 and the company had all its bicycles and Huffy swapped or converted to bare the Huffy name.

Huffman became one of the largest manufacturers of bicycles in the United State of America in the 1960s.Huffy proceeded in the development and manufacturing of unique and somewhat distinct bike models such as:

  • The Radio Bike, which was a bicycle that had an electron-tube radio attached to the tank;

  • The Scout, which was a road bicycle with a gear system running up to 10 speed levels;

  • The Dragster sometimes also known as the “wheelie bike”. This bicycle aka muscle or high-riser bike was designed to attract and capture the interest of children with features such as an ape hangar handlebar, a banana seat and small; and

  • The Sigma, a BMX (meaning a bicycle motocross) bike that is sports (track or off road) bicycle used for racing and stunt riding.

Huffy’s experience and expertise in the creation and development of efficient bicycles used by athletes. Five medals were won during the Olympics game competition in 1984 by cyclist or bikers that used Huffy bikes.

Later on in the year 2004, the 76-year-old manufacturers of bicycles like the Dayton Roadster and Huffy Convertible (that is the Huffy Corporation) declared it had financial problems especially with its accounting sector. Due to this accounting irregularities the price of Huffy stocks in the New York Stock Exchange market plummeted by approximately 40 percent. In August of same year, Huffy stocks were put off and removed from the New York Stock Exchange. Huffy finally announced that the Huffy Corporation and all its United States and Canadian subsidiaries would file for bankruptcy protection under Chapter 11 of the United States Bankruptcy Code. The bankruptcy notwithstanding the company came to an agreement with its principal suppliers for the continuous shipping of products while it expected to meet commitments to customers through 2005.

In 2006 it was recorded that more than 100 million Huffy bicycles had been sold in the world market. In the years 2010, a complete line redesign aiming to bring fresh designs and consumer comfort. Also, a smaller size for young riders was created from the Huffy Green Machine in 2012 so that riders can have different tune to spin.

The need for Huffy passionate riders was met in 2013 when the passion for innovation from Huffy resulted in the discovery of a new line of Elite Series performance bike. Presently, all the bikes that are sold under the Huffy name are produced in China.

General Characteristics and Specifications of the Huffy Cruiser Beach Bicycle

For the purpose of this huffy cruiser bike review, the specifications discussed below will be vis-à-vis the cruiser bikes designed and produced by Huffy will a little emphasis on the deluxe cruiser bike where need may arise. The cruiser division of huffy is one of the most prevalent of all the other bike division categories. The characteristics below pertain to both gender designs of the Huffy cruiser beach bikes.

Frames: Huffy cruiser bikes are comprised of tubes and stay that make up the frames. These tubes and stays may vary depending on the model and the likes or style of the owner. They can be easily customised and theme aspects added to it. The frames are usually made of resistant steel or other robust material. Classic Huffy cruiser frames consist of an adjustable rear rack.

Saddles: There are different types of saddles but in the case of the Huffy cruisers, these saddles are comfort saddles and not racing saddles implying that they a wider, heavier for ensuring a pleasurable ride. Nonetheless the saddles vary slightly between genders for example the men’s saddles are narrower and often longer than those of the women (these are wider and often short). The good looks of the Huffy cruiser bike saddles are principally an amalgamation of the cosiness of spring seats and the densely padded style details.

Seat post: The seat post supports the saddles of the bikes and as the frame of the bicycles are made of varying material but same as the frame. They are usually adjustable to suit the height of different riders. They can be easily customised and a theme aspect added to it.

Brake: The brakes system on the Huffy cruiser can be located at the front or rear of the bike depending on whether it has a single or double braking system. This setup usually depends on the model and most especially on the type of bike. The huffy deluxe cruiser have an easy to use coaster brake while other bicycles often have the calliper and the linear put brakes (good vibration cruiser bikes) incorporated which is one of the most used type of brake system identified on the Huffy cruiser.

Wheels: These are usually a combination of the tyres, rims, spokes, valves and hubs. These components are often found at the front and rear of the bicycle. The rims found on Huffy cruiser bikes are lightweight alloy that are very resistant to corrosion. The wheel size determines the type and model of the bike and sometime the gender for which the bicycle was built. There are various wheel sizes on the Huffy cruiser bikes (with the Huffy deluxe cruiser inclusive) as illustrated below. As regards designing and manufacturing of the Huffy cruiser bikes and the wheel sizes, the men’s model and the women’s cruiser models only have the 26 inch wheel size in common. Below the 26 inch wheel size we find the women’s models and above the 26 inch wheel size are predominantly the men’s Huffy cruiser models.

Derailleur: These derailleurs are the mechanism on a bicycle used to move the chain from one sprocket (gear) to another in cycling. These component can only be found on the cruiser models that have a gear system hence are absent on single speed bicycles. On a multispeed bike there are front and rear derailleurs: the front derailleur guides the chain from a chain ring to another chain ring; and the rear derailleur changes the chain from cog to cog.

Crankset: The crankset consists of a double or triple chain rings in two crank arms.

Bottom bracket: This component comprises the spindle, bearings and cups. The bottom bracket links the frame (tubes and stay) to the crankset. The spindle styles that can be found on a bicycle are either be the square taper or the splined style depending on the cruiser bike model.

Pedals: The pedals are the device used for the generation of mechanical energy required to move the bike. There are two main types of pedals i.e. the platform and the clipless pedals. The platform pedals are the ones armed on the cruiser bike because they do not need the rider to have a special cycling shoes and are designed for road and cruiser bikes. The huffy cruiser are equipped with a double density pedals to give the rider a desired comfortable ride throughout.

Headset or the front set: The head set is made up of the following parts: the handlebar grip; head tube; shock absorber; front brakes and fork. These headset and its parts are what the rider uses to guide and steer the bi-wheeled foot pedal vehicle in the desired direction. Depending on the height and morphology of the rider the headsets are adjustable to suit and match any rider.

The stem: The stem connects the stem to the handlebar and they could be threaded or threadless. The threaded stem have a quill that slides into the handle bar and is tautened with a bolt and wedge while the threadless stem clamps directly to the steerer tube and are tautened by one or more bolts.

The handlebar: The handlebar or steerer is the main component of the bike that is used for direction or guiding the apparatus in the direction wanted by the cyclist. The handlebar design and style varies amongst the different models of bicycles. There are a few designs of handlebars in the bicycles industry but the main steerers found on the Huffy cruiser bikes are the risers, drop or flat bars. The riser bars rise from the stem and lean back towards the bike rider; the flat bars go across the bar and equally lean towards the rider; while the drop bar are mounted directly to the stem and have a flat section with two hooked areas. Some of the grips on the handlebar are double density grips to ensure a firm, relaxed grip, a pleasant and comfortable ride.

The shifters: The shifters are found on bikes that had a gear system. These shifters are sometimes mounted together with the brake levers at the front of the bike (the front set). The shifters change from one gear to another.

The brake lever: The brake lever is located at the front set and is sometime mounted together with the shifter. The brake lever controls the braking system on the bicycles. Bicycles with a single speed like the Huffy deluxe cruiser bikes have a brake lever that controls just the rear wheels.

Fork: The fork is part of the front set or headset of bicycles. The most used fork type on the cruiser bikes are the rigid fork rather than those with suspensions or shock absorbers. The rigid forks are made of same sturdy material as the frame. A few materials include carbon, steel, and other alloys that are used for the fork due to their robustness.

The kickstand: The kickstand is a swivelling metal rod attached to a bicycle or bike and lies horizontally when not in use but can be kicked into a vertical position so as to support or hold the bike upright when it is stationary. The kickstand are found on all the Huffy cruiser models of bicycle.

The fenders :The fender are a sturdy feature that add a classic look to the Huffy cruiser bicycles. The fenders are installed on the bikes to keep the rider clean and dry i.e. prevent dirty water and mud from attaining the rider when riding in bad weather or insalubrious environment.

Extra features: Some huffy bikes have other features that could be classified as somewhat unconventional feature that can be found on a bike. A good example if the Radio bike on which a radio stereo was attached to the frame of the bike ensuring that the news and other radio entertainment or information sources followed the riders everywhere their went. Some other additional features that could be found on a Huffy cruiser bikes especially determined by the owner or rider of the bicycle are: the front / handlebar basket; handlebar beverage holder; cup or bottle holder; embroider saddles; dual density grip and pedals, 12 gauge spokes, pencil rubber tires, front / rear rack and cell phone carrier etc.
