Review: Let’s test the Electra Townie Go! 7D EQ Step-Thru, an urban e-bike with its own style


What is just and necessary

I think it has become clear that we are dealing with a different category compared to other “manual” urban bikes. But that doesn’t mean that its main value is being a different bike. It has all the minimum required for a bike that will move around the city.

The integrated lights are simple and effective, the mechanical brakes are sufficient and the rear derailleur Shimano Tourney seven-speed with remote control RevoShift it reminds us how well the Japanese brand does this type of entry-level component.

For orders, please note that this is a bike that comes standard unequipped. It does not have a carrier, luggage rack or basket as basic equipment. Of course, you have at your disposal accessories such as the basket for the handlebars Electra Plasket what you see in the photos It is very beautiful and resistant, although when placing it we have to turn the front light a little so that it does not rub. In any case, I always prefer to put the load behind and for that reason, the Townie Go! 7D EQ has anchors on its rear triangle to put a carrier like that of its “cousin” Townie Path Go!

Continuing with the accessories, we have details such as fenders or chain covers in painted metal. This gives it a touch of authenticity and a very interesting finish, but adds some extra weight. Then there are components such as the steel steering, the goat leg or the saddle itself which do not help the scale either. The final weight of the Electra Townie Go! 7D EQ it is 21 kilograms, which, in any case, keeps it within the range of manageable urban electrics at idle.

In any case, the whole combination of platform and components contributes to this bike having a very interesting price. As of today (March 2023) the recommended price is €2,000 which is very competitive considering what it offers.

Electra Townie Go!  7D EQ Step-Thru

Different, brave and accessible

I really enjoyed sharing a few weeks with the Electra Townie Go! 7D. It’s been useful, it’s been fun, it’s made me feel a little more “cool” at times, and most of all, it’s gotten a couple of people asking me about it while I tied it up near a store door. People who seem to have taken it for granted that urban cycling is only for a couple of bike types and have now discovered something different and “cool”.

It is also a bike with a good price for what it offers and a great opportunity for a brand like Electra to find its place in the European cycling market.

Family stuff

The Electra catalog is available on the Trek website and is a veritable orgy of colors and designs of all kinds. From 100% American cruisers to much more classic and European bikes. You have electric bikes from €1,699 for the Cruiser Go! up to €3,499 for the Townie Path Go!

In any case, if we stick to the Townie Go “family”!, this consists of two models that differ in the colors available and in the position of the horizontal tube of the frame. The Electra Townie Go! 7D EQ Step Over it has a high bar and two very serious colors available. The joy remains Step-Thru (like the one we tried) with five very fun colors and a low bar.
