With a convenient step-through design, gorgeous retro styling, enhanced stability and a sweet, sweet ride, the Electra Townie 21D women's cruiser bike is sure to delight.

  • Lightweight aluminum frame provides vertical stiffness for prompt acceleration and power in climbs
  • Geometry places rider upright for comfortable, heads-up positioning; aft positioning allows a rider to place both feet on the ground at a stop
  • Step-through frame makes mounting and dismounting saddle quick and easy, and reduces rider's fear of sudden, awkward stops
  • Shimano front and rear derailleurs provide smooth shifting through all 21 speeds; geared for hills as well as flats
  • Shimano Revo shifters are intuitively easy to use and deliver smooth shifting
  • Suspension fork and Townie ergonomic saddle with shock-absorbing elastomers offer bump-smoothing comfort for all-day riding
  • Linear-pull brakes control both wheels, providing smooth, responsive deceleration
  • Semi-slick 26x2.0 tires provide a smooth and stable ride over a variety of riding surfaces
  • Convenient platform pedals accept most casual shoes
  • One size fits most
  • Specs are subject to change

Fitting an Electra bike is easy. Start by setting the saddle to its lowest position and then stand over it with both feet flat on the ground. Next, simply raise the saddle until it rests in the crotch. Tighten it in place, and that's it— you're done! 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.
