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 both feet 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. The aluminum frame and rigid fork give it a light, lively feel. It's seven gears make for both simple operation and easy hill climbing. Come test ride one, and see why it is our most popular Townie. The ladies model is also available in orange, violet, quartz, coral, fuschia, white, polar blue, and vanilla. The mens model is also available in moss, black, chocolate, graphite, and slate blue.
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, and a front suspension gives it a smooth, plush ride. The ladies model is also available in persimmon, pewter, and polished blue; the mens in blue, white, 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 only the basic model below, but Electra has a large selection from which to choose. Peruse their site. 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. Check them out.
The Gigi Cruiser
These days we're stocking the Gigi. She comes with three easy-to-operate gears and a coaster brakes. And like all of the Electra cruisers, 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.)
Here's a really pretty cruiser. The seven gears make it easy to negotiate the hills around here. The wider seat and upright riding position make it very comfortable, and the frame is designed so you can have the seat high enough to make it easy to pedal, but not have that tip-toe reach to the ground when you stop.
Here's a brand new bike from Electra. I think it's best described as a fast hybrid. The ride is light, swift, and smooth.You'll lean over just a tad, but not too much. The Verse is quite comfortable. It's a nice blend of a flat bar road bike and a traditional hybrid. We thought enough of it to add to our line-up. Come see what you think. We also carry the ladies in teal/blue.
