Happy Hour is Here!

The Townie Commute 8D is a stylish commuter bike that is built to handle the rigors of the road. It offers eight speeds to choose with a Shimano Rapid Fire Plus shifter and front and rear linear-pull brakes. Large 700c, puncture-resistant Schwalbe balloon tires roll fast and smooth, decreasing vibration on uneven roads. Swept back handlebars provide a comfy, upright position with a wide view of the road so you can spot potential hazards, opportunities and detours. And by detours we mean happy hours.

It's right for you if...

You’re looking for a bike that has all the upgrades necessary for a safe and stylish commute. The Townie® Commute 8D features our game-changing Flat Foot Technology®, cushy balloon tires and swept back handlebars for ultimate comfort and control. If you want to get around on two wheels more often, this bike is for you.

The tech you get

Complete with heavy-duty front and rear racks and LED lights, alloy fenders, and an ABUS ring lock, this ride is ready to roll. A Shimano Rapid Fire Plus shifter glides through 8 speeds while powerful front and rear linear-pull brakes give you all the stopping power you need. Top it off with a ringer bell and you're set.

The final word

What do you get when you combine the best-selling Townie® with additional features to take your commute to the next level? The sleek and stylish Townie® Commute. And you know it’ll be a comfy ride, because it wouldn’t be a Townie without our patented Flat Foot Technology®. So get on and ride. Don’t worry, your car will be just fine in the garage.
