Designed for stability, ease of use and laid-back style, the Electra Townie® 3 is a great bike for the novice rider looking for a fun cruiser.
Flat Foot Technology™ combines a slightly rearward riding position with a chainset mounted forward of the seatpost
Result is low center of gravity and full leg extension, which combine to increase comfort and pedaling torque compared to many comfort-category bikes
Also, low center of gravity lets riders sit on the bike with their feet flat on the ground, providing unsure riders stability during starts and stops
Shimano Nexus internal 3-speed rear hub provides smooth, intuitive shifting; great for light riding around town and the RV park or along the promenade
Ergonomic, shock-absorbing Townie saddle softens the affect of bumps in the road
Adjustable seat post and handlebar stem let you dial in the fit for nothing but comfort (with so much adjustability, one size fits most people)
Total convenience: Platform pedals require no special shoes, and the full-length chainguard keeps dirt and oil off the legs of your pedal pushers
Semi-slick 26x1.9 tires provide a smooth and stable ride over a variety of riding surfaces
Front linear-pull hand brakes provide controlled deceleration
After an initial break-in period you might notice your bicycle performing less responsively than the day you brought it home. Not to worry, this is typical of all new bicycles and simply reflects that cables have stretched or their housings have seated themselves into final position. To keep running at peak performance, all REI bicycles come with a FREE warranty tune-up, which should be accomplished between the first 100-200 miles of riding or after the first two months if you're accumulating miles less quickly. Contact your nearest REI bike shop for details and an appointment for this important service.
