2012 Electra Townie Original 8i

Electra's Townie Original 8i offers a lightweight aluminum frame with a wonderfully comfortable ride thanks to a suspension fork that soaks up the bumps. This sweet bike also boasts a Shimano Nexus 8-speed drivetrain that makes hills disappear. It's low maintenance, clean, silent and easy to use, and it can even shift while you're completely still, like at stop lights. You'll also love the plush seat, quality wheels and tires, and the easy-to-reach handlebars and controls.

Features and Information

  • One size fits most.

Comments:

First got one for my Wife, Townie 7 Internal hub in Hot Pink, my daughter fell in love with it so had to find another for my wife and got her an original Townie 8i Misty Moss color; then it was my turn and got the 8i pictured here. All are fun to ride and very comfortable. We are accessorizing them with racks, bags and lights. With my bad back this was a perfect choice.
