'DEAL OF THE MONTH
- Longer chainstays and wheelbase and a lower center of gravity provide ultimate stability even when the bike is fully loaded
- The smooth ride of ultra-durable butted chromoly steel is comfortable day after day
- Low touring mounts front and rear stabilize heavy multi-day touring loads
- Touring drivetrain combines mountain-bike gearing with road-bike smoothness
Enjoy all the advantages of Townie’s Flat Foot Technology®—comfort, control, efficiency and a wide view of the
road—along with a Shimano Nexus 3-speed internal hub that makes shifting as easy as a twist-of-the-wrist. The
gearing is protected inside the rear hub, so there’s virtually no maintenance required to keep shifting smoothly.

3-speed gear range at the twist-of-the-wrist. Ergonomic Townie saddles are as comfortable and stylish
as your favorite pair of jeans. A durable cover surrounds a supportive multi-density foam base, suspended by lightweight,
shock-absorbing elastomer springs.
