Description

Inspired by vintage European touring bikes, Electra's Ticino 7D is classically beautiful with modern touches. Details like the sweet-riding diamond frame, upright tourist handlebars and hammered fenders show off its retro styling. Meanwhile, modern features make the Ticino ride like a dream. The lightweight aluminum frame and wide-range 7-speed gearing mean nimble handling, plenty of get-up-and-go and easy climbing, too. Best of all, the ride is relaxed and upright, perfect for looking around and enjoying the view as you cruise down the street in style.

Love My Bike

Pros:
Lightweight, Comfortable
Cons:
Best Uses:
Commuting/City
I purchased my Ticino two years ago and ride daily to and from work. I love the way it rolls and rolls. I feel like I can coast for ever and the speed is awesome when you want to move. For a comfortable, stylish cruiser, I think it is hard to beat!

Best bike I have ever owned

Pros:
Durable, Lightweight, Versatile
Cons:
Best Uses:
Commuting/City, Road Biking
I am a year round commuter, and require a bike where I am sitting upright rather than hunched over. I have retrofitted many bikes over the years to meet this requirement. This is the first bike that I could immediately start using off the shelf. A truly great bike; quality from fender to fender. Way to roll, Electra.

Might Look Like Kermit but I Don''t Care

Pros:
Versatile, Lightweight, Durable
Cons:
Best Uses:
Commuting/City
I purchased the Ticcino 7D because of the upright posture it offers. I cycle 32 miles round trip, 5 days a week durning the spring and summer months and as far into fall as I can. The bike is comfortable, reliable and easy to maintain. My only complaint isthat the tires (700c)don't have enough "grab" to them. The slightest amount of water at any speed can cause the rear to skate out. I will be working with my Bike shop to find a solution this spring. The rear rack that Electra has designated for this bike is stylish but virtually without function. I monted a sturdy after market rack that holds my paniers just fine. All-in-all if you are commuting, not raceing, this is a great piece of equipment.

fancy looking junk

Pros:
Lightweight
Cons:
Wears Out Quickly, Poor Construction
Best Uses:
I bought a Ticino 7 in September for commuting. I needed the upright position and the swept back handles because of lower back and shoulder problems. This bike has been a total nightmare. I have had to drag this piece of fancy looking trash into the shop over a dozen times already because of multiple flat tires, broken valves, rattling fenders, a busted derailler, the list goes on. I had to spend 100 bucks replacing both tires because they are too cheap and flimsy to withstand city riding. The valves had to be replaced twice because they broke off while I was pumping the tires. And the gears stopped shifting right after about 5 months and still don't despite my bike shop making 4 attempts to adjust. This is all after only having the bike for less than 8 month. Just junk.
