I just noticed an ad in Bicycling on Electra's new "Townie" bikes with radical geometry. It seems like Electra cleaned up the entire line and is now banking it's future on this new Townie with low seat, roadster style frame that supposed to be more comfortable than anything out there.
It seems like Electra is promoting that cyclists should be riding "flat foot" on the peddle instead of simply using the top of the arch. I looked at the low riding position and it seems like you're sitting too low on the saddle even though the peddales are further away. Wouldn't this cause knee pain?
How many people here think that Electra is simply pulling our leg?
