sixthreezero paisley women's cruiser, 3 speed model

The fashion and pop culture conscious folks behind sixtreezero were always bike lovers, but were particularly smitten by the beach cruiser culture in their hometown of Hermosa Beach, CA. Longing to be part of that scene the company was founded in 2005, and met with success as today tens of thousands of their bikes are cruisin’ across America.

Sixthreezero makes cruisers for men and women, but the women’s Paisley model is far and away the company’s most sought after bike. They’ve sold out of them several times, and each time they build up a long waiting list for the next batch. The company is happy to announce that not only is the Paisley available again, but now comes in two models with a new three speed option in addition to the single speed version. Check out all the details and more photos after the break…

sixthreezero paisley women's cruiser, 1 speed model The Paisley is a 17” women’s cruiser frame made from steel, and it rides on 26” wheels with 2” wide waffle-tread cruiser tires. The single speed version has a 40t sprocket up front and 18t cog in the rear, but the new three speed version employs a Shimano internal rear hub mated to a twist-shifter for those who prefer to have a bit of gear range. Both models feature rear coaster brakes.

Your choice of gearing is the only difference, as all other components (and colors) are common between the two models. Sixthreezero’s bikes are quite obviously meant to appeal to people visually, and the company has accordingly put some thought into the color-coding of the Paisley cruiser.

The Paisley’s frame comes in glossy coral pink with detailed pink paisley fenders. The pink is offset with sky blue painted alloy rims with matching painted stainless steel spokes. The cruiser has classy white wall tires, and matching brown synthetic leather sixthreezero grips and saddle.

The rest of the components are pretty basic stuff- The chromed handlebar, seat post and one-piece crank are all made of steel, the headset is a threaded type (which should be obsolete for any type of bike by now, in my opinion) and the platform pedals are made of black plastic. The Paisley also comes with a kickstand and reflectors.

The complete bike weight is listed at 32lbs, although it’s not specified if this is the one or three speed model. The three speed model costs $429.99 USD, and the single speed sells for $379.99.

Sixthreezero bicycles are available at authorized dealers or online retailers and direct through the company’s website. Their bikes carry a lifetime warranty against manufacturing or material defects on the frame and fork, and six months coverage on components.

Looks Walmart quality, except with paint options. Maybe even sub-Walmart.

And before someone explodes about Walmart, I’ve seen a few off-brand cruisers that have very similar parts. The hubs appear to be those really god awful 3-part chromed steel hubs, which sometimes have the threads for the nuts off at an angle. The headset is a cheap steel unit that uses knurling for the upper race, and is also likely poorly threaded, making adjustment an annoyance. It’s got a cheap saddle clamp, the kind that tends to slip easily if not overtightened.

It might not be a BSO, but it sure shares a lot of parts in common with a BSO.

Wonder what the meaning of the name is. Here in Chicago, it’s kind of a slight dig at someone from the Naperville/Aurora suburbs (because of the area code).
