I spent this weekend in Dallas, and in a mission to provide more detailed photos to go with the prior review of the Electra Townie 8i owned by my mom in Dallas. The bike is a couple years old and my mom stores it in their shed, which means it's not exposed to water, but humidity is a factor. There were no signs of dry rot in the tires and the only wear has been a bit of rust on a few bolts.
And now for some pictures!
From the non-drive side
From the drive side where you can clearly see the hockey stick chainguards.

This is written on the seat stay - flat foot technology is a patented Electra technology and they seem to be pretty proud of it.
Really, they really emphasize the positioning in the branding.
The headtube badge
Shimano Nexus 8 internally geared hub, the same one found on just about any 8-speed internally geared bike made.
Finally, the pictures to go with the review!
