The bikes are customizable to your height and weight so that the brand can really focus on personalized customer comfort. Their bikes come in one, three or seven-speed, and there are four styles to choose from, one of which is “hybrid”. The latest addition to their product line, hybrids are a cross between road and mountain bikes, so expect wider tyres and beefed up brakes so that you can take your bike off-road if you need to.

Top 5 Best SixThreeZero Bike Reviews
5. Scholar Beach Cruiser Bike (Single-speed Version)
The ultimate in simplicity, the scholar is ideally made for casual cruises along beach paths and flat riverside cycles. It’s available in three or seven-speed, but the ease of use of a one-speed bike is evident here, and it’s also really good-looking.
It comes with matching front and rear fenders, a wide handlebar for maximum comfort, and that classic upright position synonymous with cruisers. The mix of cream and orange on the standard bodywork is also extremely aesthetically pleasing, and the lack of any cables, plus it coming 85% built, means that this is the ultimate hassle-free bike experience.
· Under $300 is an absolute bargain for a well-made steel-framed bike
· Very comfortable seating position for cruising
· No gears means no cables – there’s very little that can go wrong
· Very limited in terrain, speed and incline – use on flat, smooth surfaces only
4. Around the Block Cruiser
Another affordable option, this bike comes with eye-catching curves all over. Again, ThreeSixZero go all out for comfort and looks, and the wide foam saddle is extremely comfortable, while the custom foam grips are cushioned to be easier on your hands.
The pedalling is well-designed, with the smooth cruise system ensuring that you’re never over-exerting. The attractive design differs for men’s and women’s bikes, with the curved frame at a horizontal for men or a less-pronounced diagonal curve for women.
· Unbelievable value, at $200 for the single-speed or $250 for the seven-speed
· Sturdy and reliable
· Front and back baskets can be added for shopping
· Only black to choose from – where are the stylish colors from the other models?
· Quite heavy considering its limited function
3. In the Barrel Men’s Cruiser
The best of the cruisers SixThreeZero has to offer, it is perhaps then a slight disappointment that there is no women’s option. Boasting a wider, sturdier frame, this bike feels like it could almost pass as a hybrid, and indeed it holds up well on dirt as well as tarmac. It’s leather bubble seat and cushioned leather handlebars are classy and attractive and are stitched to a very high quality.
The pedals are rubber block so that you still get the same comfort you do with lighter weight cruisers, but the added sturdiness of the build allows for a slightly higher top speed of up to 20mph, and the seven-speed option doesn’t seem unnecessary, despite this being a cruiser. It isn’t without its faults though, and perhaps the clue that it is still a cruiser is best illustrated by the complaints online about the pedals but being particularly sturdy or secure when taking it on to dirt tracks.
· Feels like a hybrid but without the hybrid price tag
· Superb quality leather
· Pedals are not particularly sturdy and have been reported to fall off
· No women’s version
2. EvryJourney Hybrid
It is the seven-speed hybrid bikes available at ThreeZeroSixty that really put an exclamation point next to the company’s name. The EvryJourney is no exception. Offering the comfort of a cruiser bike, with a wide, cushioned saddle and upright seating position, it is a breeze to ride. But when you want to crank up the power, the Shimano seven-speed gear hub provides a smooth and reliable shift with no grinding.
This is supported by the 2-inch tyres, which grip well and allow you to ease your way up hills on varying grades of terrain. It has a low centre of gravity and is made with variety in mind, with people of all heights having both a comfortable standing and seating position.
· Lightweight, powerful and adaptable, with a really sporty look and feel
· At under $400, it’s great value for money y
· Excellent tyres make this a true hybrid
· 300-pound weight limit means it doesn’t quite live up to its name
· Brakes might need to be adjusted during first few uses and can be fiddly to install
1. Explore Your Range Hybrid
In all honesty, there isn’t a huge amount to choose between the EvryJourney and the Explore Your Range. This has the same cushioned saddle, Shimano gears, 2-inch tyres and smooth cruise configuration through the pedals.
As with the EvryJourney, it is designed with comfort in mind, so you get a cruiser feel but with hybrid performance. There is a good choice of colours, and men’s and women’s options available.So why have we given this the number one spot?
The bike has a higher centre of gravity than the EveryJourney, but this doesn’t seem to make a difference to performance, simply meaning that this looks more like a cruiser where the EvryJourney could be mistaken for a sports bike. The frame is not curved, but this is merely aesthetic, and the end result is a bike that is $50 cheaper, and this is what makes the Explore Your Range hybrid shade it.
· Plenty of power with no real effort – it feels like a cruiser
· Excellent tyres
· The best value for money you can buy in terms of high-quality hybrids
· The same height and weight issues as the EvryJourney
While the cruiser bikes are excellent, and simple to put together, the hybrids offered by ThreeSixZero are extremely high-quality, offering versatility but with the same level of comfort. Of course, if you are looking for the easiest bike possible, a one-speed cruiser would be a perfect choice, but the seven-speed hybrids are easy to put together, operate and enjoy, without actually weighing anymore.
