About the Product
The Bruiser is a favorite among men looking for that recreational cruiser to fit the true needs of a guy. The Bruiser name suits it well, this is a guy’s guy bike.
A great cruiser for men who would like more leg and arm extension, the 26-inch Chief Man cruiser bike from Firmstrong features an elongated frame with a forward pedaling design that allows riders to keep seat closer to ground while still getting proper leg extension for a more comfortable ride.

What customers say about "Key Specs"
Firmstrong Bruiser Man Beach Cruiser Bicycle, 26-Inch
  • I bought this bike for my husband and it is the first time a bike frame has been big enough for him. He loves it!
  • The flat black frame looks pretty sharp. Frame is steel. Welds look good.
  • This bike has great components, and nice light frame.
  • I like the large frame and equipped mine with bags and a basket on the front.
  • I'll start by saying that the bike looks very cool, and rides very nicely. I'm 6'3" and this bike fits me perfectly.
Firmstrong Chief Man Beach Cruiser Bicycle, 26-Inch
  • I give it five big ones because this bike handles well and I'm 275 lbs. larger frame than normal.
  • I mostly ride it to and from the beach and at 6'1" 215 Lbs. I appreciate the elongated frame.
  • The long frame is comfortable for me, a tall-ish guy (6' 2").
  • This bike is big and fits my 6'3" 300lb frame well. It also seems to be able to handle my weight with ease.
  • The bike is a perfect fit, handles nicely and accomplishes everything I bought it for.

What customers say about "Components"
Firmstrong Bruiser Man Beach Cruiser Bicycle, 26-Inch
  • The wheels were perfectly built. I was so happy with mine I bought my wife one, one week after I got mine.
  • The black wheels and tires make it more manly and tough looking. Its easy to assemble and a good price.
  • I feel comfortable on it and the wheels support my stature.
  • The bike is easy to ride with its big tires but is not fast. If you want a fast bike a beach cruiser is probably not what you should buy.
  • Very comfortable ride. Tire rubber feels very soft.
Firmstrong Chief Man Beach Cruiser Bicycle, 26-Inch
  • The seat is comfortable, the balloon tires bouncy and fun around town.
  • The handle bars are in the right position for long rides and the balloon tires give a nice soft ride.
  • Sort of refreshing to ride a single-speed, foot brake bike again after years on 27-speed, hand-brake bikes.
  • Great bike and the forward pedaling style makes for riding with ease uphill or against the wind.
  • Comfortable pedals and kick stand works well.

What customers say about "Features"
Firmstrong Bruiser Man Beach Cruiser Bicycle, 26-Inch
  • The wrapped grips are a nice detail, and the seat is cushy.
  • The seat is comfortable without upgrading. It's my favorite bike.
  • And the name bruiser does describe it - very sturdy and looks to be exceptionally well made, big comfortable seat, solid welds.
  • First off I love the look of this bike it rides great, seat is comfortable and it assembles easily.
  • This bike is beefy and has no problem handling a couple of saddle bag type baskets as well as a basket on the handlebars.
Firmstrong Chief Man Beach Cruiser Bicycle, 26-Inch
  • Assembly went smoothly, all I needed was my metric allen wrench set.
  • This bike with its forward peddling, stretched frame, adjustable handle bar stem, and simple design looked like it would do the job
  • The bike fits me pretty well with a high seat post position and it's very comfortable for short rides around the neighborhood.
  • The bike rides OK, seat is comfortable .... its OK for the price!
  • Since the handlebars lean forward and the seat is adjustable, I imagine almost anyone will be able to ride it without issue.
