Although Electra is a brand rather than a type of bicycle, we've given them their own category because they don't really fit into any other. Their Townies, Cruisers, and Amsterdam bikes are sort of comfort bikes, sort of cruisers, but not exactly. They are, however, exactly stylin'. Scroll down for a small sample of their bikes. Stroll in for a test drive. We think you'll love these bikes.
The TownieThe Townie is a unique bicycle. It's a cross between a comfort bike and a beach cruiser. Unlike any other bike on the market, the Townie allows you to have your feet almost flat on the ground when you stop, and still have the seat high enough to make the bike easy to pedal. This "flat foot technology" is especially good for folks who have not ridden for a long time, or who just feel uncomfortable with that tiptoe reach to the ground that is characteristic of most bicycles. Besides being very comfortable, this one size bike fits most people. It's a bike you can share.
Townie Original 7D
We start things off with the Townie 7. It's a very comfortable bike. You sit upright. The aluminum frame and rigid fork give it a light, smooth, stable ride. It has seven easy to operate gears, which are just enough for the hills around here, but not so many that you don't know what to do with them all. Come test ride one, and see why it is our most popular Townie. They come in a multitude of colors. We have most in stock.
We also carry the Townie 7 with the 24" wheels to accomodate smaller riders.
Townie Original 21
This is the bike that started off the whole "flat foot" thing for Electra. The 21 gears make it especially easy to pedal. An aluminum frame makes it light weight. The ladies model is also available in persimmon, pewter, and polished blue; the mens in black, crimson, and silver.
As the name suggests, The Amsterdam takes after the original utilitarian bikes of Amsterdam. The styling is classic, and like the Townies, you'll have a lot of your foot on the ground when you stop. We stock the Classic 3i, but Electra also makes the spiffy Royale 8i with all the trimmings. Take a look. We can get any of them for you.
The Amsterdam Original 3i
Here's the Amsterdam we keep in stock, the Original 3i. It has three speeds and a coaster brake which lends it reliability and simplicity of operation. The "cool" factor is a bonus. Available in orange, pink, and spring green. Also available in men's.
The hardest thing about carrying Electra cruisers is picking which ones to stock. They are hands-down the coolest, best looking cruisers out there, and Electra makes a bunch of them. We only keep one or two in stock, but the whole line is available to us in just a couple of days. Peruse the Whole Line.
Here's one of the cruisers we keep in stock. The wide seat and upright riding position make it very comfortable. The seven easy to operate gears make going up hills a breeze. And like all the Electras you'll have a lot of your foot on the ground when you stop. Plus she's really pretty.
The Wren Cruiser
These days we're stocking the Wren cruiser. She comes with three easy-to-operate gears and a coaster brake. You won't have to think about how to operate it. All you have to think about is how good this bike looks on you! (Check back with us. We like to change around what we stock in the cruisers.)
