2010 Electra Ticino Classic City and Touring Bicycles

2010-electra-ticino-grey commuter city urban bicycle bike

Electra is debuting an entirely new line of classically styled city / touring bikes at Interbike in just a couple of weeks, but we’ve got a little sneak peek.

Dubbed the Ticino, they offer seven trim levels and a variety of colors for men and women.  Designed to be lightweight, comfortable and roll easy on 700c wheels, the Ticino is meant for everyday use.  Shown above is the Nimbus Grey men’s model, featuring their singlespeed layout.  Men’s frames are available in Regular and Large sizes, and women’s frames come in just one size.

To complement its Ticino bikes, Electra will offer a proprietary line of retro-style components that are “infused with contemporary technology”–including forks, cranksets, chainrings, tourist handlebars, stems, saddles, brake levers, pedals, hubs and rims to allow cyclists to customize their existing bikes.

Hit ‘more’ to see the rest of the lineup…
