The '09 Electra Women's Townie Balloon 9D, via Helen's Cycles.
ELECTRA ELEGANCE: All cycles have elegant flair, but this '09 Electra Women's Townie Balloon 9D, with its wide whitewalls and retro saddle, has extra oomph. Maybe it is the Amgen Tour of California pulling into town. Maybe we need a way to get more exercise and have more fun doing it. Or maybe it is that longtime LA cyclery Helen's Cycles has this particular Electra on sale. It's all good. RIDING DEAL: It's $499.99, down from $859.99. Sweet.
