Cruiser shows fragments of a subculture practiced in the German city of Oberhausen that transfers symbols and practices of the outlaw motorcycle scene to bicycling. Jan is awarded the group’s patch at the campfire, Hercules makes tea in the workshop and Sidney gets a Mohawk shaved by his father. The group’s rituals and the sensuality of their two-wheelers are at the centre of the film, alongside the construction of masculinity.
