I've been looking at Electra bikes, specifically the Townie 7D and Amsterdam Original 3i. Mostly because I rode a Townie last month and it felt like the most comfortable, least scary bike I've ever been on. I'll be riding in Brooklyn where its high-density, and drivers are not too friendly. I plan to ride mostly in parks, but sometimes need to ride in bike lanes to get to the park. Its important to me that I feel comfortable on the bike and I like that with the Electra bikes I can put my feet flat on the ground if I need to. Any suggestions of bikes with same advantages that are better built and/or cheaper?
