We somehow scored a Townie 8 for $550 brand new off the floor. Wife picked it out as a fun bike to have when we're not out trying to kill it. Now I want one. I can't believe how fun these bikes are to ride.
I'm totally sold on the 8-speed Nexus. That's a cool lil hub. So that leaves me with two options, the regular Townie 8 vs. the Townie Balloon 8. Only difference is the Balloon 8 has the mo bigga tires and no shock. I don't think we'll get the same kinda deal on it though.
Anyone have any experience riding the Balloon 8?
