The Electra Townie Euro 8D step-through women's bike serves up a little bit of Euro and a whole lot of cool. It's perfectly suited to cruising, running errands and casual riding.

  • Flat Foot Technology™ design puts bottom bracket and pedals well ahead of the seatpost, resulting in a lower center of gravity, full leg extension and increased comfort
  • Geometry also places rider upright for comfortable, heads-up positioning; aft positioning allows a rider to place both feet on the ground at a stop
  • Aluminum frame provides vertical stiffness for prompt acceleration and power in climbs; step-through design facilitates easy mounting and dismounting
  • Shimano Rapidfire Plus trigger shifters snap through the 8 speeds; features Shimano Acera rear derailleur and replaceable derailleur hanger
  • Linear-pull brakes provide controlled deceleration so you stop when you need to
  • Alloy rear rack with strap lets you easily attach and haul items for excellent utility
  • Convenient platform pedals require no special shoes, and the full-length chainguard and aluminum fenders keep clothes free of dirt and oil
  • Semi-slick 700x38 tires ensure a smooth and stable ride over a variety of surfaces
  • 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.
