      Comments:

      I really enjoy my new bike! Just recently became interested in riding again due to being retired military and because of health issues. The Electra Townie is a well built bicycle that is comfortable and easy to ride. My wife calls me old school, in which I totally agree with. My sales rep. at Athens Bike Shop went to their basement and brought up a metallic moss Townie and I simply had to have it because the color reminds me of a vintage GTO. My total experience with this bike and Athens Bike Shop in general is outstanding and well worth the drive.

      I ride my Townie everyday all around town. It is a comfortable bike to go to the gym, the store, the library of ride to dinner. I needed a bike that would allow my feet to touch the ground, a bike that was easy to operate, a bike that put my weight on the seat and NOT on my wrists/handlebar. The Townie met my needs perfectly.

        Comments:

        Got back into riding after about 50 year lay off and this 69 year old is thrilled. I have been riding the Trinity Trail which is a Fort Worth Tx City bike walk and run paved trail. After only a month, I am doing a 25 mile turn around and it has been a blast, except on the return when the wind is above 15mph! It rides smooth, gears work great and best of all Bicycles Inc, will adjust my bike 4 times a year for free. I would say unless you want to go real fast this is the bike for you. Seven speeds are plenty!

          Comments:

          I am in my 60s, and have arthritis and bad knees. My doctor recommended cycling and swimming to control the arthritis and to put off knee replacement surgery. I have not been a consistent bike rider since my bike was stolen when I was 13 years old. So far I am easing into biking by riding around the cul de sac 15 times at least once per day. I hope to start riding on bike paths. The Townie is very comfortable for a tall man, and very light and easy to control. Thanks to Bike Doctor of Annapolis for setting it right the first time.

            I use my Townie 7D for light commuting and family riding. We live in a semi-hilly area, so gears are good. Bike is extremely comfortable! Probably the most comfortable bike I've ever used. Had my heart set on a cruiser, but once I test drove this in the Jax Murr parking lot, I was hooked. Wife bought it for my early b-day present. You sit upright, which is comfortable. Electra's Flat Foot technology helps with waiting at signals. Gears shift flawlessly. Brakes stop bike effortlessly. Easy to steer and maneuver. Smooth ride. I added the plastic fenders and 8-ball bell & valve caps. Pretty nice looking set up.

              Noel at Mr B's knows bikes and is very customer service oriented. He asked me about my intended use of the bike and he recommended the Townie 7D and after three weeks of daily use, he was right on! This is a great hybrid bike. I use it for commuting 20 miles a day and the 7th gear is good at about 15mph. On weekends I like to drive on desert roads and when the bike performs well in light to medium sand. First gear will get you through most sand while 7th is great for commuting on residential and county roads. I'm 62 and this bike is getting me back in shape without a lot of effort.

                I have a full-suspension, lightweight beast for a mountain bike. And I have a carbon fiber road bike. I love each of them. But I'd forgotten that riding a bike can be fun, low pressure and relaxed. The Townie is a great bike, whether it's your only ride, or the third. The wheels are decent quality, 7 gears does well for city trips, and the long wheelbase makes for a smooth ride.I've taken mine out wearing flip-flops, a ball cap and cargo shorts. I hadn't done that in at least 10 years! These can be customized w fenders, groovy headlamps, a keg cup holder (and baskets for the handlebars if that's what you wanna do).Take it on your next bar crawl, or to your evening softball game, a festival, whatevs.

                  This is so easy to ride I hardly work up a sweat. I was comparing it to a Trek Navigator 2.0 and it just seemed to be the right fit for me! You actually stand flat footed while seated and it is very easy to control. I am 63 going on 18 when I am on this bike!

                  When I bought my Townie, I was looking for a bike to motivate me to ride again. Since buying my Townie, I have enjoyed cycling so much that I now ride several times a week and go about 8-12 miles each ride. I have lost 75 lbs. and LOVE my bike. I am constantly getting compliments about how "sharp" it looks. I really don't care about the looks so much; I'm more impressed by how comfortable the ride is. I tell all my friends about "flatfoot technology" and have converted several friends to this style of bike. Thank you.
