With his post on why cruiser bikes suck, Josiah Hesse seemed to be cruisin' for a bruising. And the hits just keep coming:

Says cycling for the rest of us:

This is merely your opinion and you know what they say about opinions. Every person on this earth can be an irresponsible rule breaker if they choose to be. It has NOTHING whatsoever to do with whether they ride a cruiser or not. I live in a mountain town and I ride my cruiser every day, and yes, as my form of transportation. I do also ride in the winter on a daily basis. I guess you shouldn't write a blog or article when you do not possess full knowledge to do so.

Do cruiser bikes suck? Or does Josiah's opinion suck? Post your thoughts below, or join the conversation already under way here.

Keep Westword Free... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Denver with no paywalls.
