Nirve

I’m probably really late to the draw on this but everyone is getting in on the retro road bike scene.  This is the first time I've seen it but even Beach cruiser manufacturer Nirve got in on the action.

These bikes are quite nice and all but their price points are always around 400-600 dollars.  This begs me to wonder why more people don’t just buy an old bike and restore or put some new gear on it.  You’ll be saving money, the planet, and if you pick right you’ll have a much better bike in the end.

Don’t get me wrong, I’m not a retro grouch, and I’m all for new technology but these “Retro" style bikes have NOTHING over vintage bikes besides being shinier.
