If you frequent the beach, chances are you’ll want to spend more than a few minutes there. Getting there without dropping your picnic basket can be done with the Electra Townie Go 7D, thanks to its electric-powered nature and rear rack. And with such a comfortable ride, it’s making an admiral effort to be the best electric beach cruiser bike.
Why We Like It – Electra Townie Go 7D
Toss your picnic into the rear rack, slide onto the seat, and take off for the beach in the Electra Townie Go 7D. Even on sand, its patented Flat Foot technology offers superior stability and control.
Durability & Build Quality
The Electra Townie Go 7D is more than just a 6061-T6 aluminum frame that can handle quite a bit of heat and weight. The crank, for example, is made of forged alloy, then fitted with double chainguards. The frame is then infused with Flat Foot technology for much better support, stability, and control.
Performance (Speed & Acceleration)
The Electra Townie Go 7D does well enough in the speed department. Its 250W hydrive rear hub motor can push the bike up to 20mph. That’s a good speed, despite such a lower wattage motor. To compliment it, the electric bikes are fitted with 180mm mechanical disc brakes for superb stopping power. You’ll have to take it for a spin or two to get used to the brakes.
Range & Battery
The range of the Electra Townie Go 7D fluctuates based on power support modes. Using pedal assist can net you more miles on a single charge at the cost of you doing more work. At maximum, you get 50 miles. What it doesn’t have is throttle mode, something the Juiced City Scrambler has.
For $1500 you’d think these e bikes would be full of features. Having excellent brakes is great and necessary, but that’s as far as it goes. You don’t even get headlights, forcing you to pay a bike shop.
Electra Townie Go 7D Wrap Up
Lacking features and full throttle, the only appeal the Electra Townie Go 7D has is for frequent beach-goers who need a good electric bike with a rear rack. It has solid speeds and a great battery for it. That’s in addition to superb 180mm brakes and better control from Flat Foot technology.
