Start Your Ride
Choose Your Ride
The Urban Man rides smooth, pedals easy, and it's fun. With three different gear options — one, three, or seven speeds — you can choose the right bike for your terrain or favorite activities.
While only offering one gear, the single-speed Urban Man is still able to serve the differing needs of various riders. It's ideal for those who want a simple bicycle that is fun and easy to operate.
The single- and three-speed models have rear coaster brakes, while the seven-speed offers front and rear handbrakes for added versatility.
Comfort seat and wide tires
The oversized seat features double coil springs, making the ride smooth and soft. The 2.125-inch wide, grippy whitewall tires absorb the bumps for an effortless ride.

Let me tell you the pros-
1. Coaster brake means fewer cables and less adjusting, honking, squeaking and just general BS associated with bikes.
2. 36 spoke rims, front and back, heavy gauge steel great for carting 300 pounds of Me with out a lot of maintenance.
3. NEXUS 3 Speed Internal gear hub- this means I get some gear reduction for mechanical advantage on the hills and a nice 'around town' gear for when I need power. This is WAAAAY better than a single speed bike (unless you are a teenager or live on flat ground, skip the single speed) and unlike derailleur style bikes, the chain is fixed on 1 front sprocket and 1 real. The chain does not change gears, the hub does and all your troubles go away (unless you are a serious mountain climber and need all those gears)
4. Surprisingly, this bike is light. It's just about 38 pounds, fully assembled.
5. The beach cruiser style is a nice upright position with plenty of knee room, no knocking the handle bars or odd body position.
6. The seat is serious comfort, 2 springs, nice and wide and the Firmstrong logo in white looks classy as hell.check out the pics I have added.
7. The detail in the hand grips is beautiful. Nice simple leather wrap with baseball glove stitching over foam. See the pics.
8. It's just a damn good looking bike. Retro classic style, with just 1 cable for the rear hub, the lines are clean and maintenance is near nothing.
I have a 31 inch inseam. The bike I bought has a 17 inch frame. I was a little sketchy on the size, at first, but standing flat footed and straddling the bar, it's a comfortable height. I raised the seat up high and the handle bars, too. When the pedal is down, my leg is fully extended so I'm getting the most out of every crank, no short changing.
10 days in...
I have been riding an average of 15 miles per day, I have ridden every day since I got it Aug 1, 2016.
I started out in a beach town, all flat riding. I use it for commuting around town and for playing Pokemon go so there is a lot of on and off, sudden stops, close quarters turning, speed up and slow down. Pokemon go beats the hell out of a bike and this bike can take it (so far).
The seat remains comfortable for hours of riding and my body is okay because the body position is nice and natural.
I have been back home in suburban New Jersey for 3 days and have used it to commute to work. Lots of hills, bridges, steep inclines that take 1 to 3 minutes to ascend in the easier gears. I'm VERY glad for the 3 speed over the single. Potholes are rough, the frame is stiff with no shock absorption. Because I'm big, I go on and off curbs where there is a curb cut or access ramp. Otherwise I get off the bike and pick it up. I do not want to wreck that back rim.
On my suburban terrain, I'm not struggling to keep an 11 mph pace and it's plenty fun and comfortable for my 4 mile each way commute to work and home, plus a lot of time in the parks, bike paths and paved trails where we ride with the kids for leisure.
10 days in and I'm pleasantly surprised, I'll keep you posted.
I changed the tires to Orange Kenda (the same it came with, just orange instead of white wall and added Slime Nail Proof tubes), For commuting to work, I added an Ibera Pak Rak Commuter Bag and some safety lights.
I have ridden this bike, now over 500 miles, the wheels are solid, the spokes are good and tight. The frame is holding up nicely and the seat remains comfortable. Nothing appears to be deteriorating.
Here is the Amazon link to the RakPak https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00LBHDP9O/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o01_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1
Update 3: a little over 1,000 miles, now, about 50 days in.
I have done 50+ mile riding days and routinely commute to work on this bicycle. I have gone to New York City and tested this bike in traffic, up hills that I would rather forget, down steep hills and busy sidewalks.
1 flaw I'm starting to find, now, is the rear wheel. The spokes are starting to break. I went to the bike shop to have 2 spokes changed and broke another one on the way home. All on the rear, where the weight is.
The repair is about 35 dollars at my shop, that included 2 spokes that were 2.00 each so the cost is in the labor.
If I'm goi g to be commuting year round I can see I will need to get into a serious bike upwards of 1,000 dollars but if you are going to the park or riding around down the shore, leisure, and not doing 500+ miles a month commutes, this n
Bike is tremendous fun and a great value.
We love both bikes: both bikes handled my 5’7” 280 lb frame and my wife’s 5”6” 140 lb physique easily. Both are very comfortable to ride and the construction seems to be about the same. Some parts are identical such as the pedals, seat post clamp, and reflectors. Both bikes were easy to assemble and both arrived in excellent condition.
Here's where we found differences in the two bikes:
The sixthreezero comes with a carrier rack pre-installed. We really like this additional feature.
The Firmstrong’s seat is firmer than the sixthreezero. For us the sixthreezero seat is more comfortable.
Although it seems like you can’t go wrong with either of these bikes, we found that the small differences in the sixthreezero made it our favorite.
The bike feels light despite its size (the product spec says it is 38 lbs). On the road it is a nimble and comfortable ride. It is essentially a road bike and doesn't handle bumps very well.
A couple of thoughts (neither cons nor pros):
(1) I am 5'6" and this bike is just a tad on the big side for me. I have the seat almost to the lowest level. I am able to stand on both feet on the bike, but just barely. I am thinking someone that's shorter than me may have a hard time with this bike, even though it is rated for 5'2" and above.
(2) The handles spread wide. This perhaps makes the ride a bit more comfortable but it does make the bike feel bulky; it is a bit difficult to maneuver this through normal sized doors.
Then I rode over a half inch branch laying in the road and heard a spoke snap. Turns out all the spokes are overtightened. And the cluster has been overtightened so badly I haven't been able to remove it--my next option is an impact wrench which is probably going to break something. So I'm probably about to have to buy a new wheel for an 8 month old bike. My "cheap department store" bike lasted years and thousands of miles and if the bearings were a standard size I'd still be riding it
