Cool Electra 7D in "Matte Bark"

Excited to be part of the cycling family again. I don't think I've ridden a bike since I was 10 which is a good 20+ years ago and I'm loving every minute of it. Turns out something good did came out from the pandemic. Using this opportunity to cycle as a family. My wife has always wanted to get a cruiser bike so when I got hers on mother's day I immediately fell in love and had to get one for me on for father's day. Lucky to be able to snag one since it seems everyone is buying bicycles especially cruisers where I live. Drove an hour and half to get mine. Already got her some pedals and seat as well. Waiting on some Brooks leather wrap grips to finish off the look.










Here's the wife's:

Thanks JehD ! Yes they are very fun. Just wish they were a little lighter but I guess you can't really expect that from a cruiser.
GeezyRider Thank you! Yes they only had two options. Matte black and this. I think Matte black would have been too plain though which is why I went this route instead

What a lovely color combo! I looked and looked for a 7D for weeks and none anywhere in the country. One shop in AZ had one but will not ship.

Love your pedals - who makes them and where did you find them?
