  • Traditional steel frame is rugged and forgiving on bumps; sports a crown fork and retro spring saddle for comfort
  • Step-through frame makes mounting and dismounting the saddle quick and easy
  • Geometry places pedals ahead of the seatpost, which creates a low center of gravity and positions rider in an upright, balanced position
  • The result of this geometry is a comfortable riding position, full leg extension for maximum power, and, typically, an ability to reach the ground with both feet
  • Shimano Nexus 3-speed shifting system is maintenance-free and simple to use with a quick twist of the wrist
  • Integrated coaster brake is both effective and intuitively simple to use—just pedal in reverse, like you did as a child on your first bike
  • Platform pedals accept just about any pair of shoes or flip-flops; full-length chainguard keeps pant legs free of oil and entanglement
  • 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.
