Seriously, just do it. Don’t get stuck thinking about the $3,000 bike or the $7,000 one you’ve been researching. I’ve had my Story bike for 7 months now. My husband has a Faraday that’s now starting to lose it’s verve after a few years. So I needed to keep up with him!
I enjoy my Story bike so much, and rode it around San Francisco for months to and from a small office I was renting. SO glad I bought it instead of buying a new computer. And someone else got a bike because I bought mine. Even better.
5 years still going strong.
Better than I expected! I can ride with ease. Too bad It took so long to reach me, not much weather left to ride in. Shifting is a seamless breeze. Had to replace the “little” saddle for a more comfortable ride.
Never hearing of Story bikes during a two year research for an affordable Ebike I ran across the name in an article on affordable Ebikes. I had decided on pedal assist, battery size and weight was important. Reading everything I desired I ordered a commuter bike immediately and couldn’t be happier. Excellent quality of work coupled with smooth gearing and looks. I get compliments and second looks from folks. I love the comfort of assist that allows a moderate workout without the mental strain. And no bottom soreness after hours in the saddle. It’s a hidden gem and I’m spreading the word.
Overall, this bike just can't be beat for our needs. We had a long list of requirements that make a great errand/short commute bike and the Story Electric Commuter is the only bike on the market that hit all the important points.
To be the perfect around town bike it had to be/include: Gears, light weight, disc brakes, headlight, fit multiple riders, have enough power to get up our steep hill, fit larger town tires, include fenders and racks, and most importantly, be stealth enough, and low priced enough, to not be afraid to leave it locked up somewhere! There's a few other bikes that hit all these points except they cost more than double so we'd be afraid to ever leave it locked up anywhere rendering those options useless. Plus the adjustable stem makes it easy to switch between riders from 5'5" to 6'1". Even our 6'4" son fits on it relatively well.
Regarding electric bikes in general and for the people on the fence: I'm a seriously competitive cyclist that trains 6 days a week so obviously a hill isn't going to be that big of a deal for me. But you know what? I don't want to come home late at night and get my heart rate high just before going to bed. I don't want to ride in the winter and start with a bunch of clothes then be all hot and sweaty even though it's 20 degrees out. Ebikes are a game changer for us in that they replace car trips and let us get places faster and without showing up a mess.
The only thing I wish it had included was an integrated taillight (and the ability to have the headlight and taillight be on anytime the bike is ridden).
