Expert Review

Renowned for their laid back vibe and equally easy-going beach cruisers, Electra brings another gem to the game the Ticino 8D. Inspired by classic European touring bikes, the Ticino offers the same smooth ride for longer distances, with all the best extras to make commuting, errand running, and general messing around a real blast.

A butted 6061 lightweight aluminum frameset with chromoly, lugged crown fork offers a responsive and agile ride, with silky smooth 700c Electra Elite double-wall alloy rims that make the bike flow like liquid down the roadway. A drivetrain blend of Shimano and SRAM is commanded by easy action RapidFire Plus shifters, and unique reverse-hinged bar-end levers operate retro-style brakes. Even the chain ring is designed to keep the chain from snagging a pant leg. Riders sit upright and aware while piloting the Ticino with the wide, swept-back bars.

It’s the little things which truly make this bike shine like the earth tone saddle and matching handlebar grips and it’s packed with other gorgeous highlights, too, like hammered alloy fenders and a stunning alloy crankset. Double bottle mounts are standard fare, along with full compatibility for a rear rack. The Ticino has runway model good looks in elegant dress and sparkles with glimmering chrome accessories, so get used to turning heads on your way to there and back again.Rating: 4.75/5
