2011 Electra Townie Balloon 3i

You'll feel like you're cruising on air with Electra's Townie Balloon 3i! It boasts fat 2.35-inch-wide tires for great traction and an ultra-smooth ride. And, Electra's laid-back aluminum frame features their Flat Foot Technology so you can rest your feet fully on the ground whenever you want and a plush saddle for ride-all-day comfort. Plus, the low-maintenance, weatherproof Shimano 3-speed internal drivetrain makes easy work of the hills and the Shimano roller brakes deliver solid stopping power.

      Best bike I ever owned! Feels like riding on a cloud! The 3i internal hub works great and provides enough gear change for most cases, except really steep inclines. Roller breaks work great. Balloon tires are sweet. The saddle is so comfortable, I could ride all day. If you can afford the 8i go for it, but the 3i is pretty awsome to.

        If you want an awesome bike for cruising, then this is it. The internal gears makes shifting easy (you can even change gears while stopped). I found this bike is great for casual rides, commuting, and paved bike paths. It has great looks and turns heads everywhere. The balloon tires are so cool and comfortable. It's the new "Big Wheel" for the kid in all of us.
