Cruiser Bikes are not as famous around the world as are mountain bikes, but slowly people are beginning to understand the utility of cruiser bikes.
Those who are seeking comfort especially for everyday commute to frequently visited places like grocery or school, cruiser bikes are the way to go.

This is not an ordered list.
1. Schwinn Women’s Sanctuary Cruiser Bicycle / Schwinn Men’s Sanctuary Cruiser Bicycle
This is an affordable and functional cruiser bicycle for women. This bike reminds you of the time when bikes were simple with handlebars, comfortable large seat, single-speed, fenders, rear carrier, and a kickstand.
The reason this bike is listed here is because of its simplicity in design. If you are looking for a plain and down to earth cruiser bicycle for starters, then here is a good bike for you.

3. SixthreeZero Men’s In The Barrel
Not only is this bike of top-notch quality, but the customer service of SixThreeZero is second to none. It has an unmatched design that will most certainly turn heads. This is yet another good cruiser bicycle for beginners if jaw-dropping aesthetics is what appeals to you. Unfortunately, it is quite expensive therefore not recommended if affordability is your prime requirement. However, if you are looking for the quality of $700 cruiser bike in half the price, then this should satisfy you. This bike is available in 3 speed and single speed options.
4. SixthreeZero Women’s Beach Cruiser
Like the SixThreeZero In the Barrel for Men, this is one of the best cruiser bikes for beginners. It perfectly combines the retro style with modern touch making it one of the cutest bikes in the market.
With a fresh style, out of the box design, functionality, premium built quality and unmatched customer service, this should be the go-to bike for most starters. Once again, unfortunately, this is one of the most expensive cruiser bikes for women on this list. This is mainly because SixThreeZero does not compromise on its quality. This bike is available in singles and three-speed options.
5. Critical Cycles Women’s Beach Cruiser / Critical Cycles Men’s Beach Cruiser
If you are looking for a cruiser bicycle with the style of a SixThreeZero in the Barrel or SixThreeZero Women’s beach cruiser but are not willing to pay as high a premium, then critical cycles should provide you with a good alternative.
Many satisfied customers have labeled these bikes as the best bikes for the money.
Although you cannot expect the quality to be same as that of SixThreeZero, if you do not have the ability to sense the nuances of bicycling as the pros do, then why spend more on something that you don’t understand completely.
Take my advice, if I were looking for a cruiser bike for beginners I would give precedence to affordability and go for this bike.
