Bike of the week 11: Electra Townie 7D

With Summer approaching, cruisers are becoming a hot seller at the shop. One of the Electra bikes that is particularly cool is the Townie 7D. Electra has three major series of bikes:

  • Cruisers: Style is king. Lots of different models, colors, and styles.
  • Townie: Practical, yet very cool.
  • Amsterdam: European-style bikes for everyday life.

The Townie series of Electra cruisers is the most practical for everyday use. 7D indicates that this mode has 7 speeds and shifts using a traditional derailleur. This gives you a good range of gears, but the shifting is still very easy to use. In Utah, you’re always riding up or down a hill, so having a few extra gears is not just luxury, it is necessity! The Townie 7D also uses front and rear hand brakes to give you a little more control as you ride. When pulling a child trailer, this is a must have option. Both men’s and women’s models are available in a number of different colors.

What makes this bike so versatile and cool, is Electra’s Flat Foot Technology. The rider is able to easily reach the ground while sitting on the saddle while being comfortable and allowing for a full leg extension. Proper leg extension is critical on every kind of bike for efficiency, but it often puts the rider uncomfortably high so reaching the ground is a struggle.

We have these in stock, so come take a look and a test ride today!
