Product Details

2016 Electra Townie Balloon 8i EQ

Every ride is a great ride on Electra's Townie Balloon 8i! It boasts fat 2.35-inch-wide tires for an ultra-smooth ride, and Electra's step-through aluminum frame with their Flat Foot Technology, which means you're super comfortable and can always get your feet on the ground easily. You'll also love the easy-shifting Shimano Nexus 8-speed drivetrain that lets you cruise over the hills. It's low maintenance, clean, silent and simple to use, and you can even shift while you're stopped. Other highlights include the plush seat, upright handlebars and confidence-inspiring Shimano roller brakes that stop you quickly and safely in the wet and dry.
