Product Details

2011 Electra Ticino 1

With a nod to the golden age of cycling, Electra has created the Ticino 1. Think of it as old school meets the modern era in its simplest form. The frame features a chromoly main tube for a posh, civilized ride and horizontal dropouts so chain tension is a snap. All the retro details are here, too: upright tourist bars, an elegant handcrafted chromoly fork and even stainless-steel fenders. For convenience and comfort, the Ticino gets a no-fuss, one-speed freewheel, quick 700c wheels and a cush dual-density seat. Pedals with non-skid platforms let you use any shoes you want and the powerful brakes provide confidence and control.

      I use the Ticino 1 everyday for fitness. The bike is supremely comfortable. It is a little weird pumping up the tires to 100 psi when the sew up's I used in the 60's would only handle 75. Frame feels great brakes could be slightly better. Needs a lightweight kickstand. I am converting mine to a kickback two speed not because I need to but because I can. I am old school so I prefer the feel of steel. I am doing lots of mods because I love to change things but it is not necessary. A bike is strangely intimate, not unlike a Ferrari I once owned. This gives me the same fun at a hell of a lot less money and worry. My wife who does not like to ride has asked me to obtain one for her. I think that say's it all...

      Absolutely lovely lines. I blame Electra for getting me back into biking after 30 years. Although I am fit I find riding about 15-20 miles a day five days a week helps with back stability issues. My muscles are coming back and I feel better every day. The Bike is very lightweight and lovely to look at. Very nice fast ride for the style and type. I'm 6' and the large frame is a good fit. Although the gearing is fine for average flat ground use I am changing out the single speed hub for a Archer 2 speed kickback. I am dropping one tooth on the rear cog to have a slightly higher top speed and still have the benefit of a lower gear for hills. I like the look of the single speed and wished to stick with that. No spandex required, and people smile when they slowly drive by. Electra did a fine job at the price point. It needs 32's instead of 28's IMHO a lightweight kickstand would be nice. Although i will spend nearly the price again to customize to my liking the bike was and is nice right out of the box
