2016 Electra Townie Original 21D Tall

The Townie Original 21D is perfect for intrepid travelers desiring the most comfortable way to see the countryside. Electra's awesome Flat Foot Technology lets you put your feet flat on the ground while in the saddle. And, the pedaling is easy with the quick-shifting Shimano 21-speed drivetrain and the plush seat. You'll also love the wide tires that make cruising super smooth. Plus, the linear-pull brakes ensure you've got the stopping power you need. This Tall version is perfect for big guys who don't fit smaller bikes.

      Comments:

      I have had a lifetime of knee issues and resulting surgeries. Which means I get nervous about just getting on and off a bike. Whether just starting out or stopping at a corner in traffic. I am on my third prosthetic knee. I am tall, so any bike I ride will require me to come down to the ground with all of my weight on one leg at some point. EXCEPT this Townie. The bike supports my body weight when I stop and I simply put a foot down and "Flintstone" it. Trust me. I dread a sudden stop and crash landing. This is the only bike I could find that gives me reassurance I won't be hurting again if I lose my balance. But the biggest plus is it a blast to ride. God bless the man that designed this.

          Comments:

          I carry it on the back of our travel vehicle, we visit the great bike trails in the south. It is set up for maximum comfort on my 67 year old body. I haven't had such a good fit, for a bike, since I was a kid.
