Ebike Mythbuster - Stepthrus Aren’t Just For Girls!

Updated: Dec 22, 2022

Here's an e-bike MythBuster. Have you heard someone call a step-through bike, a girl's bike? That's not really the case anymore, especially with the advent of E-bike.

E-bikes are empowering people with bad knees, hips, and backs to actually get outdoors and ride again. And many of those people choose a step-through version because they're easy to get on and off of without throwing your leg over the back of the bike.

That's why you'll see some manufacturers offering step-through style e-bikes in gender-neutral colors like denim or white.

If you have a hard time physically mounting an e-bike, consider a step-through. You'll be glad you did.
