Re: Help sizing a Townie bike

My husband is 6' and 215 lbs - is there a difference in height between the 7D and 9D style bikes? I see that the 7D is 45 inches high.   Thanks

Re: Help sizing a Townie bike

@jfjeld1226 thanks so much for the sizing question on the Townie! The Townie 7D and Townie Path 9D have the same size bike frame, so your husband should have no problem fitting on either. What you gain with the 9D, in addition to more gears, are bigger wheels (27.5 vs. 26) which are helpful on a wider variety of terrain.

Hope this helps and let us know if you have any additional questions!
