I purchased the Schwinn Drifter Cruiser Bike as a birthday present for my 12 year old daughter. I just converted here from the kids level smaller kid themed bikes to a grown adult bike and this cruiser was the perfect way to go. The price is really really fair in terms of bike pricing and I thought since it was a cheaper superstore level bike it would potentially be lower quality. However, it appears to be handling the rigor and use of a 12 year old girl day to day. It is also very appealing looking and has a great design, which means you get a nice looking bike for a decent price. I went with this cruiser as it allowed me to not risk having to make a more expensive large purchase from a bike specialty store for a kid that may not know how to take care of a more expensive higher level bike.
