The bike that started it all, the Electra Cruiser has been turning heads for over 25 years. What started as a love affair with biking, art and design turned into a collection of the most beautiful, fun-to-ride bikes on the planet. Electra opened up the frame geometry, making a more ergonomic ride perfect for cruises to the beach, to the store, or to nowhere in particular. You can choose from the meticulously designed Fashion or Attitude Cruisers, Electra's classic Cruiser or Cruiser Lux bike.

More on Electra Bicycles...
Electra Bicycle Company is a manufacturer of cruiser and city bikes founded in 1993 and headquartered in Vista, California. Electra bikes are known for their casual, relaxed riding style and colorful, eye-catching designs.
The company was founded by Benno Baenziger and Jeano Erforth, who were inspired to start Electra after a trip to Amsterdam where they saw the city's extensive network of bike paths and the popularity of biking as a means of transportation. They believed that they could create a similar biking culture in the United States by producing high-quality, stylish bikes that were accessible to a wide range of people.
Electra's first bike, the Townie, was released in 1993 and quickly became a hit thanks to its unique design, which allowed the rider to sit in an upright position while still being able to comfortably reach the pedals. The Townie also featured a comfortable saddle, balloon tires, and a simple, single-speed drivetrain, making it easy to ride and maintain.
Over the years, Electra has expanded its product line to include a variety of cruisers, city bikes, and children's bikes, all with a focus on comfort, style, and simplicity. In addition to the Townie, some of Electra's other popular models include the Beach Cruiser, the Amsterdam, and the Ticino.
In 2010, Electra introduced its "Flat Foot Technology," which allows the rider to plant both feet flat on the ground while seated, making it easier to start and stop the bike and increasing stability. This technology has been incorporated into many of Electra's bike models and has been well received by riders.
In addition to its bikes, Electra has also focused on promoting biking as a healthy, eco-friendly mode of transportation. The company has sponsored a number of biking events and initiatives, including the "Ride for Kids" charity ride, which raises money for the Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation.
Electra has experienced steady growth over the years and has become a well-known and respected brand in the cycling industry. Its bikes can be found at bike shops and dealerships around the world, and the company continues to innovate and expand its product line to meet the needs of its customers.
