We’ve got a patent for comfort. Checkmate,
guy who invented the couch.

The revolution started here. The Townie® introduced Electra’s patented Flat Foot Technology® to the world and it was love at first sight. That love has made the Townie the best-selling bike in the U.S. Turns out people like originality. 

The Townie was born from an idea that challenged the sacred geometry of bike design, and created a completely different riding experience. With an upright seating position that lets you see the world better and plant your feet flat on the ground whenever you want, it sets a new standard in comfort and control. Although most Electra bikes feature Flat Foot Technology to some degree, the Townie showcases it in all its glory. 

We know it can be hard choosing which model is right for you. How many gears? Step-thru or step-over? Some people just pick their favorite color, which is cool. Choose from an Original or EQ equipped with fenders or lights. Throw on a rack, front or rear basket and you have the perfect bike to ride to the farmer’s market, grab a coffee or to the next town over.


The Townie® EQ. The Townie Original offers the simplicity of our patented Flat Foot Technology® frame design in a variety of speeds. The Townie EQ is a Townie Original fully equipped with fenders, Hub Dynamo powered front and rear lights and internal cable routing. Click on the image to see the difference.
