2017 Electra Townie Go! 8i Ladies

Once we hit the year 2000, we all assumed we'd have jet packs. Electra's Townie Go! 8i is the next best thing. This fun cruiser monitors your pedaling power and speed, and it automatically delivers some surprising power from a Bosch electric motor for an added boost to help conquer hills and ride long distances without breaking a sweat. The electric bits are seamlessly blended into the aluminum Townie frame, which features an upright seating position and fat tires for smooth, easy cruising. Combine all that with a maintenance-free 8-speed rear Shimano hub and you've got an extremely versatile bike that's ready to take you anywhere. Plus, Electra's Flat Foot Technology lowers the seat height for easier stops and starts. Commute to work, run errands, and ride for joy in comfort and style, it can go over 100 miles on a single 3.5-hour charge. And since it boasts front and rear lights, a rear rack, and full fenders, you just replaced your car. The future is here.

    Comments:

    I am a short (5'7") 59 year old male and bought the black with cream tires version of the "girls" bike and love it. Very easy to get on and no issues being able to get feet fully on the ground. The electric assists really makes riding fun and practical again. Have taken it on several hundred miles of old railroads converted to trails and of course some normal on road use. You don't have to worry about killing your knees or not being able to get up a hill. Really can not say enough nice thinks about this E bike or Burt's Bikes in Henrietta NY where I bought it.

    Fantastic e-bike and so much fun to ride!

    About Me

    Comments:

    I've owned a lot of bikes, but this Electra e-assist bike is by far, my most favorite of them all, including my recumbent bike. Not only is it a great looking bike and very well built, but it is a blast to ride. I don't hesitate to go wherever I want as sometimes I will judge a ride on how difficult the hills will be, especially on the ride home. With the electric assist no hill is too hard to climb, especially when you have bad knees. It's also a comfortable bike to ride (leather saddle seat) and I especially like that the bike is equipped with great features such as matching fenders, front and rear LED lighting, chain guard, frame lock and rear rack. One thing missing is a bottle cage but I added a rear rack trunk bag and keep my water in that. I was very lucky to get the azure-colored bike as it is difficult to find right now. I bought my bike from the Hollywood Bike Gallery and had an excellent buying experience from them, along with great service from their Service/Maintenance Dept. I highly recommend this bike to anyone who wants the extra help from the electric assist. I couldn't be happier with my purchase of this bike.

    Comments:

    I got a totally different bike and it was just too tall for me. Afraid I would fall starting and stopping. Found out about the Townie and fell in love. Test rode one and that was it. Ordered the Ebony and it will be here this week. The feature I love the most is that you can be flat footed and stand up on it. No fears of falling on this bike. Of course the hill assists will be a great benefit.
