From the looks of things I picked a good time to get my bike as it appears the Steel 7D has been discontinued, along with the matte black Cruiser 1 and the silver Fat tire 7D.

Im surprised as the matte black cruiser 1 had been a staple for a long time.

I looked over the electronic version of that catalog on Electra's website. It sure seems to showcase advertising photography and graphics more than the bicycle models they have for sale. It makes me think the website will more accurately show Electra's product line up than the catalog would.

Looking at REI’s website, the Cruiser1 is still available in Black and Matte Bark , and the 7d in steel is available in matte black . Maybe they still have inventory.

I looked at Treks website and they show it in bark, black and blue? looks greenish to me. It also shoed the Steel 7d but not the Fat Tire thats odd.

The Ghost Rider is gone too at Electra and Trek .
I checked the local Trek dealers website and the Cruiser 1 is available in black in tall and regular, blue and bark in regular . No Fat Tire .
I'm glad I got one when I did .

I had a Moto 3i and loved the bike. This is the way it shouldve been built.

Hey all! This is my wife's new 2020 Townie 7D EQ. She was slightly disappointed that Rose Gold was discontinued, but we found another really nice color in Matte Violet. I'm not certain if this is a new finish for 2020 or not.

An update on the 2020 Electra 7d Fat Tire Cruiser .
The Fat Tire is still showing on Electra’s website, in black only . But , The local Trek organization which owns three shops within an hours drive , no longer lists the Fat Tire .
I'm glad I got mine when I did .

It is a bit spendy but as a former Moto 3i owner they are nice bikes. I had mine for a couple of years It was a 29 in wheel, mechanical Disc Brake, 3 speed internal. I really liked the bike and if could've made improvements it would've been exactly what they did 27.5 wheels with wider rubber, Hydro Disks and and more gears.

I picked mine up on sale at the end of the model year for like $500 US vs the $650 and thats what I thought was a good price $1k is a bit high. But they are nice.
