Makes getting around town a whole lot more practical.
E-Bikes have turned the corner. Used to give you a tailwind to boost your energy and extend your range, Townie Commute Go! 8i E-bikes from Trek's sister brand Electra are hitting the sweet spot -- and we are now stocking them at Sunshine.
The Electra Townie Commute Go! 8i is a capable around town and commute bike that blends Electra's cool design and great build qualities with pedal assist electric bike motor and control technology of Bosch, experts in electric motors for decades.
The one-size fits all step-over frame is made from lightweight aluminum. (If you prefer a 'step-through' they make those too).
Power to Go!
The bottom bracket incorporates the strong Bosch Performance 250w motor - the same power Trek puts on their e-mountain bikes, so you know it's strong.
The mid-frame motor, coupled with the smart and easy to use handlebar controller, provides 4 levels of support: Eco, Tour, Sport and Turbo. The assistance you choose starts helping the moment you are pedaling and stops boosting the instant you stop pedaling.
Great range, fast charging
The Townie Commute Go! 8i provides assistance from 20-100 miles, depending on power level and grades you ride.
The Electra Townie Commute Go! 8i can power you along at a top speed of 20 mph (25 km/h). The 400 Wh lithium-ion battery battery charges fast in just 3.5 hours and is easily removable for charging or theft protection.
Well accessorized for both fun and function
Electra's Townie Commute Go! 8i bike really is set up and ready to...Go! Out of the box complete with front and rear racks, full fenders, front and rear LED lighting, and a color matched bell (ding!).
Built solidly, runs smoothly, made to last.
In the parts department the Townie Commute Go! is not a toy. It is a solid well made reliable machine from the same folks who bring you Trek Bikes.
Smooth and easy 8-speed shifting of a Shimano Nexus internal rear hub, which keeps things clean. Strong and smooth hydraulic disc brakes by Tektro give you the safety and control you need at speed or with a heavy load.
Fat Frank Balloon tires by Schwalbe will have you rolling fast and comfortably. Townie Commute Go! also has a very healthy carrying capacity - a real workhorse if you need it to be.
