The bike is easy to assemble, comfortable, fun and easy to ride, and lighter weight than other e-bikes. Good customer support and service. All around good product.
I love it!!!
Several years ago I purchased a story by for myself and for my wife. I was very happy with the quality paint job Dash blue. I have to give it Highmarks it’s still working well my wife’s bike had a little bit of difficulty adjusting the steering - handlebars it would not stay in place so we had to take it to a bike shop. The bike is still performing very well no complaints… it’s my third electric bike.
I was so excited to get my Story step through bike for Christmas. I have had some recent mobility issues and this will allow me to maintain my exercise level.
The appearance and quality of the bike is excellent. Its Fun to ride!! I am looking forward to many enjoyable days ahead. Connie R
Haven’t unpacked it yet since for Xmas and now snowing
My step thru bike arrived expeditiously and safely in Hawaii. It was easy to assembled the last few parts (handlebars, display, pedals). After quickly topping off air in tires, I was riding to the beach in an hour. Actually nice to ride with zero assist on the flat roads and adjust assist for slight grade or hill. Especially like that it is light weight compared to other ebikes which makes it easier for me (a female senior) to handle. Looking forward to many fun and comfortable rides around Hawaii Island. Jan
My wife caught me assembling her Seafoam Green Step Though Commuter when she happened to get home early. She promised to still act surprised on Christmas morning though. On the site it appeared to be more of a pale green tinted white color. It is very green with a blue iridescence. in about 2 minutes, the color of reality had begun to grow on her. After 3 minutes she had named her new bike, Willow.
Looking at our 2 Storybike commuters side by side, I noticed very subtle changes in the 9 months between purchases. The addition of braze-on mounts for a front pannier rack, quick release front axle and slightly different brake rotors (the quick release front axle will be added to my bike soon!). All this indicates Storybike's commitment to constant improvement. BRAVO!
Storybike makes an incredible product with a more incredible business model. My family is very glad to be a Storybike family and can't wait for the next chapter.
So far so good, I haven’t put enough miles yet, but I will say the support from the company, especially Travis has been superb.
The bike arrived quickly and without damage. Easy to put together. Battery display is straightforward and I have no regrets. I love having the power to climb hills and speed up when needed.
Step Through Electric Bike
I wanted a bike that I could easily ride up hills with my 24 pound French Bulldog in a basket. I tried riding several different brands of e bikes only to be disappointed with the heavy weight, the jerky speed assistance, the loud humming noise, the complicated controls, etc.
Disappointed, I came home and googled “e bike” and my list of priorities for an e bike. I was thrilled to find that a product exists that reportedly fulfilled all my requirements. And it cost less than the competition. AND the company is philanthropic!!
When my Story Bike arrived, I quickly attached the pedals and handlebars. Then, nervously, I tried it out. Absolute success. I bought a sturdy little basket and some metal brackets to attach a seat for Cousteau. I have ridden it every day since (about 20 miles today) with my boy and it is thrilling. My friend saw me go past her house and said that she witnessed pure joy. True.
I haven’t assembled it, yet
I owned a high end Trek bike and it was great, but I could not keep up with the rest of the people with which I ride. The Story bike allows me to keep up. The pedal assist allows me to still get in a workout at the level I desire. I would not want an ebike that senses the power you need and providing it without you having some control. My riding friends that have tried my bike the looks, the control of the gears, the boost and the look of the bike. I know Story has a step-throuigh bike, but that style is just not for me.
Not everything will go right every time. But when there was a problem with the bike, customer service is superb in handling it from a distance as an online merchant. Not an easy feat. Important to bring up for others.
I ride each weekend 30 to 40 miles with a group of about six. I bought the Story bike so I can keep up with the younger rides on the hills. So far I can easily keep up and there is plenty of battery power left at the end of the ride. Love my New Story bike.
