Electra Ticino Singlespeed

Electra Ticino 20DElectra is really, really proud of their retro-styled Ticino bikes. The beauty really is in the details, which make the bike as much about the experience of riding a retro bike as it is about the look. Shown here is the singlespeed. The flagship 20-speed features capped toe-straps, roll-stamped five-star hubs, downtube shifters and cantilever brakes. What’s more, many of these components, including the striking, polished-aluminum cranks (made by FSA) are available as aftermarket parts.

    I was checking those out! That is such a nice looking bike. Classic styles seem to be creeping back into the bike market. I figured someone would be coming out with a line reminiscent of the old English three speeds, but to be honest I really expected it to come from Raleigh based on what they’ve been doing with bikes like the Clubman.

    That is a nice looking bike. Electra has been making bikes for normal folks for quite some time. Some of the other big bike makers are finally starting to figure out that not everyone wants a racer-boy bike.
