I love this classic style! I know, I'm a bike-geek. I want an eight speed because I live in a hilly area. What a practical machine! Looks great in green with the tan seat and handlebar grips too! I bet this would be faster to ride than my old 1980's Norco Pinnacle converted to a commuter.

The Amsterdam just like the townie has a unique frame design that accomodates most people so the can stand flat footed when they stop and it is very comfortable to ride. Overall people have liked the bike, but there have been some complaints about the chain gard comming apart. Overall for a casual rider it's great, We have to see for the hard core commuter. Enjoy

The Amsterdam really appeals to me. It's pretty cool that Electra has combined a classic look with their crank forward geometry. My only worry would be this bike is so classy looking it's a theft magnet, which is a bad thing for a grocery bike.
