For our Story Road Bike, we started with a sleek and traditional bike design. We carefully tucked in a powerful motor and hid the batteries neatly into the frame. When we finished we found ourselves with a beautiful and timeless bike that’s modern and powerful.

This model comes 95% assembled with all the tool necessary included making it easy to put together at home. 

Our Electric Road Bike comes well-equipped with a lightweight frame that's powered by a 350-watt motor, 36-volt battery. The LCD Screen is easy to operate and includes a USB charging port. 

We added premium parts, including micro leather grips and seat, hydraulic disc brakes, and 9-speed gearing to give you the ultimate performance and range. 

The Story Road bike’s beautiful, minimalist design and outstanding performance makes it an obvious choice for those looking for a cost-efficient rocket ship.

900-mile update: My Commute was too rough...

I’ve had my Story Electric Road Bike for about 5 months now and while it has been great fun for the most part I very quickly realized that the roads around the Boston area were just too much for it. To start out with the positives, the motor performance is still excellent and I get around 20mi of range when flooring it on PAS level 5 at a constant 18 to 20mph. Similarly, all the components have been solid so far as well, with the exception of the rear brake pads which I’ve had to replace once already as they had worn down.

What hasn’t been working so well around these parts - where potholes, rough tarmac, debris, and small rocks are very common - is keeping air INSIDE my tires. The 25mm wide tires the bike ships with are awesome for smooth roads in affluent suburbs, not so much when the roads are rough. This bike weighs considerably more than an “analog” road bike so the choice of the included 25mm tires is somewhat questionable as they are very much on the narrow side, even for regular road bikes.

I got 3 flats with the included Thickslicks, switched to Gatorskins and, while it took a little longer, eventually amassed 4 flats with those as well. Then, I decided to replace the rim strips with fabric rim tape and branch out a bit in terms of tire choice. I fitted the widest tires the frame can possibly hold: 32mm Panaracer Gravel Kings. Even with those tires it only took a week or so to end up with another pinch flat (or “snake bite”) despite meticulously checking my tire pressure every day.

So, over 5 months I’ve now had a total of 9 pinch flats as well as one incident where I ended up with a pinch flat and two nasty tire punctures in one go.

Ultimately I’ve decided that these roads really require a gravel bike and have ordered a Canyon Grail:ON for peace of mind, a more sophisticated drive system that lets me more easily tremor the rear wheel, and a more comfortable ride.

The Story Road Bike remains a great bike if you live somewhere with smooth roads, but if your daily commute is a little on the rough side I’d recommend looking at something that can hold wider tires.

Beautiful Bike and Superb Support

Performance and style exceeded expectations!. Support team responded immediately to questions. They were also helpful in recommending options to “accessorize” the bike. I am thrilled with this bike.

Awesome service!!!!

I had a few questions about settings and assembly... which was easy but I was trying to make it harder than it needed to be. The online assistance was INCREDIBLE! Almost immediate and thorough! You NEVER get that these days. Riding my road bike and it is AWESOME! Battery charge lasts ridiculously long and riding is smooth and fun. When I asked about modifications they immediately sent not just the answer but a link to the precise product on Amazon. This company ROCKS!!!
