The unique design of Electra Townies makes it a little challenging to pick out a hitch mounted bike rack. The shape of the frame doesn't allow them to fit on a hanging rack well and the fenders can interfere with some platform racks.

A great option is the Saris Freedom EX, part # SA4412F, because it can handle the weight of a Townie, which tend to be on the heavy side. The Saris EX holds bikes by the frame and has adjustable clamps so it can handle the Townie's unique shape.
