The Townie Commute 8D is a stylish commuter bike that is built to handle the rigors of the road. It offers eight speeds to choose with a Shimano Rapid Fire Plus shifter and front and rear linear-pull brakes. Large 700c, puncture-resistant Schwalbe balloon tires roll fast and smooth, decreasing vibration on uneven roads. Swept back handlebars provide a comfy, upright position with a wide view of the road so you can spot potential hazards, opportunities and detours. And by detours we mean happy hours.
