    New Electra Townie owner

    Hello all.
    Just purchased my first Electra bicycle this past Saturday. The Townie 7d in black. Now the fun begins... customizing it!

    When I purchased it, I had the bike shop install the Electra fenders, rear rack and a bottle cage. I am thinking of swapping the handlebars out with the ELectra ape hangers, but I want to get some more mileage on the bike before I do that. I might just find that I am perfectly fine with the original handlebars.

    I have been looking at some different lighting options for the bike. I really like the retro bullet headlight and rear lights that Soma Fabricators offers. The plan is to mount two headlights and two taillights eventually.

    I am also thinking of swapping out the original kickstand with a two legged stand. Does anyone here have a particular two legged stand that you could recommend looking at? Preferably one in black, but I could live with a chrome finish.

    Thanks in advance.

    Thanks for the link.

    Finally got to get out and ride some today. If it hasn't been raining, I've been stuck at work and not able to ride. Did just under 11.5 miles total with my son. Snapped a quick picture of the Townie.
    Got the trunk bag off of Amazon for just a little over $13. May not be big enough. I have a beach towel inside the main compartment along with a ulock and 4' cable. No room for anything else. Had to stuff my son's basketball jersey inter the carry strap. Not sure if I am going to keep the bag that's attached to the stem/top tube. Just something I had from another bike and threw it on today before heading out.
