Several months ago, I purchased this same bicycle, only purple, made by "NEXT". This style of frame does double duty -- it works as a mixtie [men or women] and as a great step-through mounting style for women. Very sturdy. Light as well. I took my fenders off because I prefer everything pretty basic, but they were sturdy metal as well. The bike frame as described is an aluminum alloy and appears to be used by a number of bicycle companies. In any case if you want a classy looking cruiser, comfy and easily adjusted, THIS IS FOR YOU. If you need to save a little, as I was searching, I found the same bicycle AT WALMART FOR 89.99! Also got the men's version in orange. AND BECAUSE THEY ARE FEW AND FAR BETWEEN THIS YEAR, BUY THIS BIKE AND YOU WILL NOT BE SORRY! Oh, and I am 66! Love to cruise around and can run errands. The addition of a basket or rear mounting rack helps too and Amazon has lots!
