    I look for excuses to get on my bike. This bike is comfortable and I have gone from barely making it around the block to riding for miles. I am 65, and I recommend this to any senior who wants to start exercising....great fun!!!

      Comments:

      I wanted to get back into riding. I had a mountain bike that was about 20 years old from when my kids were little and tried riding it and my hands and arms hurt for days. I did a lot of research and decided to take a look at cruiser-style bikes, but didn't want a single speed bike. I decided on the Electra Townie 7d, took a quick test ride around the store's parking lot, and bought it in the beautiful Violet (actually a deep purple) color. That day my husband and I took a 15 mile ride on the North Branch Trail and I loved the bike more with each passing mile. It is super comfortable with a cushy seat. Being able to sit upright and not have to have my weight forward on the handlebars made all the difference. And I love the flat foot technology where I don't have to get off the seat when I stop. My husband even took a short ride on it when we finished and couldn't believe how much more comfortable it was over his mountain bike. He is now thinking of getting one too. I love it and can't wait to buy some fun accessories for it! I would highly recommend it. The Village CycleSport is a wonderful place for all your biking needs and I would highly recommend them too.

        I got this bike for myself, but shared it with my mom to see if she could use it. At 56 with bad knees she loves her new bike. The flat foot design makes her feel safe and in control.

          It meets all my needs and it looks cute too! However, I am not crazy about the crank forward design for two reasons: first, I cannot stand up to pedal uphill and second, in order for my knees to not hurt I had to raise the seat to a point where the "flat foot technology" is canceled. This is why I gave 4 stars and not 5. Otherwise, this is the most comfortable bike I have ever owned. The longest non-stop trip I made on it was 25 miles: no pain whatsoever! Great, fun bike!

          I love this bike and I received fantastic customer service. I am thouroughly satisfied with my shopping experience and my bike itself. I live on the 2nd floor and the aluminum frame is plenty light enough for me to get it upstairs by myself. This bike is 20 times more awesome than the Schwinn I had.

            This bike is incredibly comfortable and fun to ride! I use it to pull my daughter in a trailer to go to the park or a leisure ride. It is well built and very attractive. I know I will be riding it for years to come, it is a great investment. The staff was also incredibly helpful and friendly, it was well worth it to go into the store.

              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.
