    Commute Go

    I have been looking at this bike also. My wife has the townie go and we really like it. The Electra bikes are available at REI stores. When you buy there you receive 10% of the purchase price in “dividends” which you can receive a check for that amount after a year. I m surprised there is not...

    Looking at Electra Loft Go -- but getting lost down the online rabbit hole.

    Hello, If you buy the bike at REI you get 10% back in dividends that you can use to buy stuff or receive a check for that amount. You will have to wait a year, but that would be a nice savings.

    Advice on Trek vs. Raleigh vs. IZIP

    After reading the review by Court on the Kiox, I emailed Electra , asking would any of their 2019 models come with the new display. The answer was not right now. They also said they had a bike coming out later this year that would use the PowerPack500. I wonder if it will be a new model, or just...

    I do not ever see much about Electra bikes on these forums, and I wonder why. I bought my wife a Townie Go, and she really likes it. I m considering a Electra commute go for me. The big deciding factors were Courts reviews and the fact that ERI is a dealer, and there's a lot of them around the...

One good reason to buy from REI is the 10% dividend "rebate" that can be used for purchases OR receive a check for the amount, during a certain time period the next year.... In...
