Huffy Rollercoaster 20-inch Kids' Bike - Red
I am way too big for this Huffy Rollercoaster kids' bike, and it's a rickety rattletrap anyway. I'd probably die if I tried to pedal it to the end of my driveway. But every time I look at the rollercoaster logo and coaster cart graphic on the chainguard, I want to hop on it and barrel down a ski hill.
The fire engine red paint, compelling graphic treatment and ape-hanger handlebar positioning really serve to disguise what is otherwise a fairly unassuming bike. Two 20" wheels, handlebars, little fenders, a nondescript white seat, and that's about it. But the sight of yellow rollercoaster cars jumping off of a red chainguard stirs an emotional reaction, even in an adult.
I wish this bike had 26" wheels and an adult-size frame, with the exact same colors and graphics. I'd tune it up and ride it everywhere. Or at least to the bottom of the cul-de-sac and back.
