2020 Electra Townie Commute 8D EQ Hybrid
The Townie (R) Commute 8D is a stylish commuter built to handle the rigors of the road.
It offers the comfort and control of the best-selling Townie (R) with additional features that allow riders to go the distance in style. A comfy, upright riding position provides a wide view of the road so you can spot potential hazards, opportunities and detours. And by detours we mean happy hours.
You're looking for a bike that has all the upgrades necessary for a safe and stylish commute. The Townie (R) Commute 8D features our game-changing Flat Foot Technology (R) , cushy balloon tires and swept back handlebars for ultimate comfort and control. If you want to get around on two wheels more often, this bike is for you.
Complete with heavy-duty front and rear racks and LED lights, alloy fenders, and an ABUS ring lock, this ride is ready to roll. A Shimano Rapid Fire Plus shifter glides through 8 speeds while powerful front and rear linear-pull brakes give you all the stopping power you need. Top it off with a ringer bell and you're set.
What do you get when you combine the best-selling Townie (R) with additional features to take your commute to the next level? The sleek and stylish Townie (R) Commute. And you know it'll be a comfy ride, because it wouldn't be a Townie without our patented Flat Foot Technology (R). So get on and ride.
Don't worry, your car will be just fine in the garage. Large 700c, puncture-resistant Schwalbe balloon tires that roll fast and decrease vibration on uneven roads for a smooth commute. You can carry your gear with heavy-duty front and rear racks while the color-matched fenders make sure everything stays clean.
Front and rear LED lights, an ABUS ring lock and a color-matched bell add safety, security and style. About Electra At Electra, we are inspired by those who ride our bikes. By the artistry of our culture.
And the details that surround us. We started this company with the idea that we could always do better. Better than what was out there.
Better than what we've done in the past. Because we believe in the power of forward motion. We believe that true innovation is what ultimately sets us apart.
And we believe in the power of different. The way we see it, if you always take the same path, you are always going to end up in the exact same place. So, we explore, we create, and we design with purpose.
We design with the intent to enhance your lifestyle. And why we may have a relaxed view on just about everything, we're serious about our bikes. How they ride, how they look and how you look riding them.
That's how you pull away from the pack. Even when riding with someone on your handlebars.

City Bikes are a decent investment for urban riders - suitable for roads, parks and canal paths, as well as light excursions off-road, they're a good all rounder. Alternatively if you're more serious about speed, I've got quite a few Road Bikes listed, and for the dirt junkies amongst us, a decent selection of Mountain bikes too.
