Call me a hipster, geek, fashion slave, whatever, but I love this new bike. Electra makes California-style cruiser bicycles(note the west coast candy paint.) The Townie line is designed for the "anti-cyclist", someone who gets tired just watching the Tour de France. More than that, for people like me who have degenerative disc disease (aka osteoarthritis) having the seat positioned further back from the pedals means no low back pain while riding.

Funny, this is the type of bicycle I wouldn't have been caught dead on as a kid, when 10-speed racing bikes were the bomb. Now, style takes a back seat to comfort for me.

Now to think of a name for it...

A little feature I added, dice valve caps.
