    Comments:

    I loved this bike the moment I got on it. I have increased distance riding, sometimes riding for hours with few stops. If it's windy, I drop down to 2nd gear and take my time, but I can still do over 20 miles. I ride with a friend and my bike outrides and out-maneuvers hers, yet she is younger and thinner and more athletic.I adore the flatfoot technology, which gives stability and I feel safer. I have had no spills since buying this bike, as I did on my old bike which rode too high.I love my Electra Townie!

        Comments:

        I performed much research for a bike sturdy enough to hold a 500+ lb Polynesian man. There are few choices that are ready to ride immediately without modification. After test riding several Electra models, the smoothness and ease of shifting of the 3i sold me. The flat foot technology helps me peddle with the balls of my feet instead of the heels while taking weight and pressure on my hands and arms by allowing me to sit straight up. I have owned my bike for 3 months and love it. Three gears are plenty for the recreational riding I do. Mahalo (thank you) Electra.

        Comments:

        I've owned this bike about five years and have gotten great enjoyment from it. It's a very good bike for an older adult that wants to get back into riding bikes. I've made a few minor changes. The saddle was a bit too uncomfortable for me. Too wide! I put a nicer English leather saddle on it, recommended by my bike mechanic, problem solved! I can ride it forty, fifty miles, with no discomfort now. I put a Townie rear rack on it and a set of panniers. I can carry a lot of stuff without a problem. I can average about 10-12 MPH in high gear. Low is plenty adequate for most hills. I highly recommend it for older adults that haven't rode a bike in a while and want to get back to it. It's a good value for the price.

          Comments:

          I was a little worried when I first bought this bicycle, mainly because of the price. But once I took it out for a spin I was blown away by the comfort and ride of the bike. Also, not that it means that much to people but for me, I love the compliments. Everywhere I go I get people asking me if they can test ride it or just take a few snap shots....I don't live in a big bicycle city. Buy this bike,the flat red color is nicer in person.

            I have ridden this bike to work,at the beach and down the city streets. It just doesn't get any better than this. A smooth ride and very comfortable. The internal shifter works like a dream. By far the best bike I have ever owned. Do yourself a favor and get on one of these fine machines.
