Electra Townie Commute 27D
Earlier this Spring, when my wife was interested in getting a new bike, I saw the new 2018 Electra Townie Commute 27D and thought that it would be a nice bike for me. Long story short, I ordered one sight unseen from Towpath Bike in Pittsford, NY. A few days later, I received a call that the bike was in and ready to go. My first ride was the 7 mile ride back home from the bike shop.
Within the first 500 feet, I knew that I was going to love this bike. I've owned many bikes over the years and I usually end up making changes to accomodate my wants and needs. The Townie has a upright riding position, which I really like. I can't take a lot of pressure in my wrists and the handlebars of the Townie Commute are just perfect for me. I love trigger shifters and this bike has them. Front and rear racks allow me to take my all important "stuff" with me.
The only change I've made is adding a Brooks B67 Aged saddle.
