Model 15589

The Straight 8 is straight money. One of our most popular Attitude Cruiser bikes, it comes blacked out with red spokes, a checkerboard rim on the rear tire and custom 8-ball valve caps. Complete with a hydroformed aluminum frame, Flat Foot Technology® and Fatti-O tires, the Straight 8 provides a relaxed, comfortable ride that feels as cool as it looks.

You like an understated kind of cool. Understated like a pipe wrench. You appreciate quality design and want a cruiser that is more than a piece of art, but a nice ride as well.

The tech you get

The Straight 8 8i features a hydroformed aluminum tank. It is equipped with a Shimano internal 8-speed rear hub with coaster brake and mechanical disc front brake. It rolls on 24" x 3" Fatti-O tires that are equipped with super sweet eight ball valve caps.

The final word

At first glance the Straight 8 may look like a standard cruiser. Take a closer look. You'll notice the details and start to understand how much time and attention goes into designing a bike that seems simple but evokes plenty of attitude. This bike answers the question, "What are you looking at?"
