    I love this bike! It's a very comfortable ride. Your feet can touch the ground easily and the design of the bike makes it easy on knees. I wanted a bike to ride around the neighborhod with my kids, but once I started riding, I realized it was a great way to exercise. I started with a department store bike but it didn't hold up to daily riding. The Townie is a million times better, I wish I had bought it a year ago. I rode to school with my kids this morning and they kept having to yell, "Mom, wait up!" instead of the other way around. This bike makes riding feel fun and effortless. It feels very safe being able to put my feet down on the ground when I stop, which is really important when you're riding with little kids who sometimes make unexpected, sudden stops.

      I purchased this gem after riding every cruiser type bike in Sacramento. For me, the truth is in how a bike feels. The Townie 7D is a plush easy ride, yet easily covers ground for me to commute, ride to the grocery store, or just toodle around town and the American River bike trail. I added fenders, a rack, and a front basket. I could ride this bike all day, and often refrain from driving my car all weekend!

        Have had the Electra Townie 7D for almost a month and have ridden it more than I had for the last three years combined! Commuting to work, cruising the bike baths, or riding to town to find ice scream, this bike handles it all with grace and style. It's so comfortable, it can take bumps along the way, and I can sit up without having to crouch over the handle bars. Having the pedals slightly forward helps. Having the gears is a must where I live, and it makes this bike a true "all-around town" bike.

          I broke my hip rollerblading and thought biking was out. A friend recommended a Townie and I just love it. It's a great feeling to just step down flat-footed when you come to a stop!

            I love this bike! It is super comfortable to ride and handles well around town. I've been riding it for a month or two now and would buy it again in a heartbeat!
