With the comfort of a cruiser and the versatility of a hybrid bike, the Electra Townie 21D gives you enough gears to go wherever you please while remaining laid back and in style.

  • Flat Foot Technology™ geometry places rider upright for comfortable, heads-up positioning; aft positioning allows a rider to place both feet on the ground at a stop
  • Suspension fork and Townie ergonomic saddle with shock-absorbing elastomers offer bump-smoothing comfort for all-day riding
  • Shimano EZ-Fire Plus trigger shifters and Tourney rear derailleur provide smooth shifting through the 21 gear combinations
  • Linear-pull brakes provide controlled deceleration for easy stopping
  • Semi-slick 26x2.0 tires ensure a smooth and stable ride over a variety of road or gravel surfaces
  • Platform pedals deliver total convenience—no special shoes required
  • 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.

Electra Townie 21D Bike - 2013is rated4.5out of5by2.
Rated5out of5byfromGreat riding bikeI have my Townie at work for breaks from my computer screen . I take a good 15 minute ride four times a day, gets your mind off of work. The bike works great and is very comfortable for a heavy set man. I now own one for the house as well,(replacing a specialized 12 speed). There are lots of hills in my neighborhood and this bike handles them well. Get you a Townie, you will be a happy camper

Rated4out of5byfromTall in the saddleBroke my back riding last year, my physical therapist recommended this bike and it rides very nicely but I was used to a faster bike, the seat is far too wide and it cannot really dig into faster gears, still a very nice ride overall , the flat-foot technology (this attribute could use a less clumsy name) really does sit the rider straight up, well made with sturdy reliable components, this is an excellent ride for the price and with time I believe we'll form a true friendship
