Aluminum Step-Through Frame
The sixthreezero EVRYjourney Women’s Step-Through Hybrid Cruiser Bicycle is constructed from aluminum alloy frame. This vintage-inspired hybrid cruiser bike has a high-gloss, metallic navy blue finish, with chrome components. To complete its look, it’s equipped with a steel rear rack for carrying your bags and other heavier luggage.
The 17.5-inch downward slope of the frame’s top tube and down tube allows effortless mounting and dismounting. In addition, the backsweep handlebar and frame allows an upright riding style to keep your hands, back, and shoulders comfortable.
The EVRYjourney is recommended for riders from 5 feet to 6 feet and 4 inches tall. With its pedal-forward frame design and adjustable, dual-spring seat (moves forward and backward), you can maintain proper leg extension, put your feet flat on the ground when stopped, and achieve optimal pedaling when riding.
Seven-Speed External Derailleur and Shifters
Equipped with Shimano’s 7-speed external derailleur, the sixthreezero EVRYjourney is suitable for a wide range of purposes—from cycling on beach path to running errands to navigating the city streets. Changing gears is as simple as twisting the right shifter.
26-Inch Kenda Whitewall Semi-Slick Tires
The Kenda whitewall, semi-slick tires measure 26 inches in diameter and 1.95 inches in width. These tires have close to smooth tread pattern, as they roll faster on relatively smooth and paved city streets, trails, and bike paths.
For riding on dirt roads, soft grounds (mud, snow, sand, etc.), and wet grounds, we suggest tires that are wider or have a rugged tread pattern, such as the sixthreezero Pave N’ Trail Women’s Hybrid Road Bicycle w/Rear Rack.
Front and Rear Hand Brakes
Unlike the Retrospec Critical Cycles Parker Step-Thru City Bike with Coaster Brake, you don’t have to pedal backwards to stop this bike. The sixthreezero EVRYjourney has linear-pull brakes, which you can engage by using the brake lever on the bike’s handlebar.

- Rider height: 5 feet to 6 feet and 4 inches

Enough Gears for Urban Riding
Some may feel that a 7-speed bike like the sixthreezero EVRYjourney isn’t enough. It really depends on your requirements and the type of terrain you’re going to use it on.
If you’re not going to travel by bicycle all the time, or if you’re going to cruise around areas with paved roads, then the sixthreezero EVRYjourney hybrid cruiser bike might be okay for your needs.
However, if you’re going to ride this bike on mixed terrains, or if you want to cycle longer without getting exhausted easily, then a multiple-geared hybrid bike, such as the Retrospec Critical Cycles Barron Hybrid Bike 21 Speed, might be more for you.
Assembles Relatively Easy
Putting this together is relatively easy and fast, even if you don’t have the know-how on assembling a bike. It might take you around an hour and a half or less to finish the job. All that’s left for you to attach are the front fender, front tire, pedals, and saddle. Although some components might need to be greased or fine-tuned, which could be tricky.
Useful for People with Physical Limitations and Injuries
The sixthreezero EVRYjourney doesn’t have shock absorbers, but it’s a relatively comfortable bike. People with multiple injuries have been riding this bike without experiencing serious problems. They were able to reclaim their health, thanks to its pedal-forward, step-through frame design and backsweep handlebars.
The sixthreezero EVRYjourney Women’s Step-Through Hybrid Cruiser Bicycle is ready for any riding adventure—from cruising your favorite beach to exploring lanes to improve your overall fitness.
Not a Light Hybrid Cruiser Bike
It’s not a lightweight bike, but it’s definitely not the heaviest among sixthreezero’s lineup of hybrid cruiser bikes. Despite its heavy weight, it’s not difficult to carry and load into a vehicle or a bike rack.
Instruction Manual Needs Updating
Assembling the sixthreezero EVRYjourney Women’s Step-Through Hybrid Cruiser Bicycle is okay for most people, especially those who are familiar with bike repairs or components. However, some feel that the assembly guide book is outdated and needs to be more comprehensive.
Can’t Add a Water Bottle Cage
This bike doesn’t have a water bottle mounting screws. One customer installed it on the bike’s front fork because the handlebar is too thin and the frame is too large. If you really want to attach a water bottle holder, you might want to take it to your local bike mechanic to avoid costly mistakes.
Who Is It For?
Beach lovers would definitely like the sixthreezero EVRYjourney Women’s Step-Through Hybrid Cruiser Bicycle. People who had a recent surgery or suffered from multiple injuries would find this bike comfortable, easy to use, and helpful in their recovery. If you just want a hybrid cruiser bike for your errands or riding around the city or town, this bike’s a good option.
The sixthreezero EVRYjourney Women’s Step-Through Hybrid Cruiser Bicycle is one of those entry-level bikes that’s worth the price. Many people are satisfied with its performance on the road: Shifting has been good. No flat tires or issues. The chain doesn’t come off even after riding it for many miles. It’s sturdy and relatively comfortable. And, it’s easy to assembly by casual cyclists, with minor components adjustments.
Whether you’re a casual cyclist or a beach lover, the sixthreezero EVRYjourney Women’s Step-Through Hybrid Cruiser Bicycle will suit your needs.
