Cruisers with multiple gears?DT

Anyone know if they make cruisers with more than one gear? We're moving to Germany soon, and my wife wants one to ride around the villages and be able to pull our daughter in the trailer behind her. Thanks!!

Raleigh has two decent offerings, the retro 7 around 230.00 and the internal 7 for around 350.00 both look nice and have matching fenders.

I've got a Milano, and it's a fun little cafe cruiser... and relatively inexpensive (I paid about $500 USD).

The Newsboy represents the "ultimate" cruiser...

The Straight Up X7 just looks so kewl.

We abide.

I rode my Milano 45 miles Saturday. It's sort of fun, but I could have ridden my racing bike 60 miles in the same time. It's heavy, inefficient, bad positioning -- but great style and fun.

The 7-speed Nexus hub is available on several cruisers.

Schwinn has been building a modern cantilever cruiser like my 31-year-old ride, which is available as the "Cruiser 7". A few years ago, Breezer made a copy of an even older Schwinn cruiser called the Ignaz X, also with a Nexus 7, but with a chrome-moly frame.

There have also been cruisers with 3-speed hubs, and 5-6 gear rear derailleurs.
