Since 1993, California brand Electra has been committed to making bikes for everyone. From step-over electric bikes to fat tire mountain bikes, Electra produces them all. Every Electra bike is designed in California and manufactured in China. Though Electra produces a full range of electric bikes, today we’ll focus on the Electra Townie Go! 8D Step-Over Bike.

Let’s get down to basics. The Electra Townie Go! 8D Step Over bike is priced at $2099.00 and comes in two distinct color options on the 6061 aluminum alloy frame: Poseidon blue or matte black. Though the price is a bit higher than similar offerings from Rad bikes, the high-end components well make this bike worth the extra dough. With a Bosch Active System Motor and unique patented Flat Foot Technology, this bike is a great bland of control and fun.

The Townie Go! 8D features a seriously quiet Active Line Gen 3 250 Watt motor that has a top assisted speed of 20 mph. Four power levels, ranging from eco to turbo and a center mounted motor make for a smooth drive. Unlike similar models, this includes a generously sized Purion display to keep tabs on battery, range and speed. For gearing, Electra included an 8-speed derailleur drivetrain to provide a solid gearing range. Meanwhile, mechanical front and rear disc brakes as well as balloon tires make for a seriously seamless ride. Hi-ten steel unicrown, straight/tapered leg fork suspension also helps keep this bike in check.

To garner good range, the  Electra Townie Go! 8D comes equipped with a Bosch 400 Wh lithium ion battery. It can charge up to 50% in just 1.5 hours and completely charges in as little as 3 hours. The battery is removable for off-bike charging and can garner a range of up to 100  miles, making this an ideal commuter bike.

Overall, the Electra Townie Go! 8D Step-Over bike is a great mid-range priced bike for those who want a long range with just the right amount of power. Powerful Bosch components and a fully removable battery make this a solid choice in the electric bike market.
