My wife and I recently purchased Commutes. We ordered mine (black) from the local bike shop and her's from REI because the local shop couldn't get the metallic blue. Interestingly the bikes had some differences. Mine had the front rack and a single kickstand. Hers had a double kickstand and no front rack. Her Arbus wheel lock looks the same but she can remove the key when it is is open. (Thinking the local bike shop sold me a prior year model.) I didn't care for the front rack so I removed it only to find I could not reattach the light above the fender as the wiring was too short. So I had to reattach the rack since I wanted the front light. I also removed the frame wheel lock because I disliked not being able to remove the key unless it was locked.Hello to all the Electra owners! My wife has a Townie, and I just go a Commute . It is a step through, in glossy black. It came with the front rack, I don t know if I like it or not but I think it looks cool. Has anyone added mirrors to the mustache handlebars? I keep looking at the bars and it does not seem like the “bar end” type would be facing backwards.
