Electra Indy Bicycle
(regularly $679.99; 50% off MSRP good only 12/3 thru 12/16 or while supplies last)
This is the BEST deal we've EVER offered on a bicycle in our 18-year history! We saved it for a special bike at a special time of year, because we can't think of a better-looking bike to find by the tree on Christmas morning. The Electra Indy is a bullet tank cruiser bicycle with Shimano Nexus Internal 3-Speed, vintage balloon tires, and coaster brakes. It's lighter than it looks thanks to an aluminum frame that will carve mean streets with ease. Pinstriped fenders and a dual-spring leatherette saddle mean total vintage flair on every ride. The Electra Indy is awesome-looking and awesome-riding. If you've never taken an Electra for a test ride, you gotta give it a try. Sure, you may already own a road bike or a mountain bike - now you need the ultimate around-town bike! And did we mention how awesome it looks?!

40% of urban travel in the U.S. is 2 miles or less, and 90% of those trips are made in cars. Just about anybody can pedal about 2 miles, no matter what condition they are in, and you don't need to wear any special clothing or shoes to do it (although we still recommend a helmet!).
Patti The Buyer's Tip O' The Day
If 1 million people made just 1 of those 2-mile trips per week with a bicycle instead of a car, we'd emit 50,000 less tons of carbon dioxide per year, and use 5 million less gallons of gasoline! Not to mention that shorts trips are the worst when it comes to wear and tear on a car's engine.
So, you don't have to devote yourself to living completely car-free. Just try going by bike once a week! You'll feel better, look better, save money, and help save the earth!
