    I am very impressed with this bike. I'm new to serious bikes and think I made the right decision with this one. It is very comfortable and easy to handle. I ride mostly for fitness now but I am wanting to take the bike farther and farther. It works really well on the pavement and doe's really well off the paved surfaces. I've owned it for a month now and would gladly purchase it again.

      I am sorry for the people that don't like the shifting. My husband adjusted mine and it shifts great. You might need to take it to the dealer and have it tuned a little bit. The seat kind of hurts, but I just have to get used to it. I am really enjoying it. I love the happy orange color.

      Comments:

      If you are just going to tool around town for 10 or 15 minutes this bike is okay. But I think it is way over priced for how rough the gears shift and how easy the chain comes off

            I bought the Townie for myself to celebrate a significant birthday. I have been very happy with this bike. I ride it every evening and the 7 speed is perfect for the Midwest suburban streets. It shifts easily. The wide seat is comfy and looks good in hot pink. Wide tires are sturdy and give me a lot of confidence. I like the fact that this is a one-size-fits-all bike and is easy to dismount and stop abruptly, if necessary.

                  My salesperson really listened to my needs to identify what I would like. My family and I were on Mackinac Island in Michigan and rode rental bikes two days straight. I never felt and comfortable and confident and it was because of the bike! The rental was a different brand but after describing the experience to my salesperson, he took me over to the array of Electras with flat foot technology. I am on my bike all the time now and loving it! I only wish they would make a ladies bike in black or steel grey since that's more my color style. I got the green which is very cool. The styling and accessories are fun too as well as the Electra Facebook page etc which makes you part of the Electra community.

                    After having some difficulty adjusting to a "teetering" urban-style bike, [...] store manager suggested I test ride a Townie ...voila! LOVE it! This bike is so comfortable to ride. Its Flat Foot Technology allows the rider to feel stable and confident. This positioning, plus comfortable seat and wider tires easily make this the best bike I've ever ridden. The 7 Speed gear option is perfect for our flat terrain and additional features like handbrakes and optional fenders make Townie a solid ride you'll enjoy for years!Kudos to [...] excellent staff too who really cared about my satisfaction.
