Some questions

I am looking into getting a cruiser but like the long wheel base. Are the Electra's longer then the felt's? Also I see Electra has a fat bike now and wondering if there is a three speed hub that would fit the rear tire. Kinda bummed that they only did them in one color, and only did single and seven speed. Thanks

I would guess that Electra would be longer with it have that set back seat post. Show me some pics of the fat Electra as I can't seem to fine any. If the rear drop outs are like most fat bikes Sturmey-Archer makes one. https://www.universalcycles.com/shop...s.php?id=68184

If I'm doing this right here is the single speed.

Cruiser Lux Fat Tire 1 | Electra Bikes

seven speed
Cruiser Lux Fat Tire 7D | Electra Bikes

hope it works.

Thanks
Joe

Sorry it took so long to get back to ya. The specs don't tell for sure if it's 170mm for the rear drops... I'll shoot a email to my local Trek shop to see if they can find out.
