Review: 26″ Huffy Women’s Nel Lusso Cruiser Bike

huffy cruiser bikeThe 26″ Huffy Women’s Nel Lusso Cruiser Bike was a new addition to my camping trips last year.  I wanted a cute cruiser bicycle to ride around the campground.  I’m not going to lie, I also wanted a cute bike to park next to my vintage camper.  Styling a vintage camper is fun so why shouldn’t my bicycle fit into my camper theme as well as provide exercise?

No one else in my neighborhood rides a cruiser bike.  I feel a little silly at times.  When we went camping, I realized I had found my people.  Then, we took a trip to New Orleans and EVERYONE has this Nel Lusso Cruiser bike.  Ok, I saw a few other bikes, but this was by far the most popular bike being used around the tourist attractions.  Again, I found my people!

My decision to purchase the 26″ Huffy Women’s Nel Lusso Cruiser Bike came down to a few things:

Favorite Features

  • From the fenders to the handlebars, it has the vintage look I wanted.

  • The seat is wide and comfortable.

  • It has a cell phone holder.  I typically just put my phone in the basket, but this seemed like a win at the time of purchase.
  • It has a drink holder and it is in a convenient location near the handle bars.

vintage style bike

  • The basket.  I feel like a cruiser bike needs a basket.  This one is wire so it is durable.


Would I Buy it Again?

Yes!  I don’t put a lot of miles on this bike and it has been perfect for a short stroll through my neighborhood or a campground.  I don’t feel like this bike is for the person who is going on a 10 mile trek.  The people of New Orleans seem to feel different though.  I imagine some of the people who own those bikes probably put a lot of miles on them.  If I had the choice to buy a different bike, I would still keep the Nel Lusso cruiser.  It is comfortable, easy to ride, and has the style I was looking for.
