The latest craze is not a mountain bike with a fresh set of gears, or a road bike made from the lightest titanium material, but instead lowrider bikes - they have low seats, raised up high handlebars, and lots and tons of bling and chrome. As the universe around us carries on getting increasingly bewildered, even our playthings become more complex. As an example our mountain bikes are far more difficult than ever with tons of gears and decisions between hard tails and soft tails and having to pick 'tween disc brakes or v-brakes. In such an age, it's not surprising the cool "retro-look" is back. Well, essentially the retro-look never goes out of favor, it just lies asleep for ten years or so before making a come back. In this point in time, lowriders and chopper bicycles are resurging in renown. They are actually not for riding cross-country or downhill, except for riding on pavement or across soft beach sand, they are smashing. It's more than the high handlebars, generous seats, and fat tires that supply a comfortable ride, it's the facility to convey one's individual tastes by embellishing their bikes. These bikes became fashion statements among the teenagers of the major built up areas of the state. Schwing bicycles first appeared in California in the early 1960s. They were built by children, who wished to copy the then-popular customised Harley bikes called choppers. Why chopped? Because the bikes had been "chopped" - back together from many different bicycles. The most particular feature of the chopper bike is its handlebars...
Also called ape hangers, which extend high above the head of the rider. The seat or saddle, in the meantime is situated even lower than ordinary, and the pedals are pushed far forward.
The conception of the chopper does not stop there, naturally. Enthusiasts heap on all the add-ons they can concoct, from chrome to gold to fake fur, from special painting to audio systems. If you are mechanically disposed, you can assemble your own chopper bicycle out of pieces of others, but if you had just like the flavour while avoiding that fuss, there are chopper bike shops out there who can give you the bike, and all of the accessories you must tailor-make it to your satisfaction. Precisely like beach cruisers, you can believe that these choppers with all their accessories would weigh you down, however that is not correct as everything is made from space age materials for lightness. Nevertheless , they sometimes only come with one gear mechanism, so cycling up hills could be a bit of a job. However that is not what these bikes are for. They are for cycling about the area, impressing your chums, and pleasing one's creativeness.
