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.

STORY BIKE FEATURES
To tell the truth I just received my bike today and have not used the electric function. But, at the outset I can say this is a very high quality product made with an eye to detail, functionality and beauty. I'm impressed. I would recommend 1) a sheet of paper in the package explaining that the assembly is outlined in a video; that was not immediately evident; 2) A video on the display function would be helpful, 3) You should consider including a schrader to presta tire pump adaptor, as most buyers will not have presta pumps, and will want to ride their bikes. The tires do arrive at about 3/4 pressure so can be ridden. But overall great work making this high quality and functional product available.
I recieved and have riden the bike everyday since. I like that the bike is light. I live in a condo and am able to easily get it into and out of the building. The boost is great but there is not much difference from one level to the other. I have to replace the seat due to numbing. I will also replace the pedals due to skinning my legs several times. The charge holds well. I am able to average a maintained speed, on mostly level roadway, at 16 mph, for a sustained ride of about an hour. Head winds, where i live are constant and strong, but no problem on this bike. Overall, I am very pleased with the bike and would highly reccommend it for people that do not expect the bike to do the work. I am 64 years old and get a good workout. Its what I was hoping for!
I am in my 70s and ride a bike for exercise and recreation, usually on paved roads and bike paths. I was looking for an electric bike that I could ride without assistance 80 to 90% of the time, with a boost for steep or long hills. The Story road bike hits the spot perfectly. It is light enough to ride without assistance and the nine gears are perfect for a rolling hill ride of 20 to 25 miles, but when the terrain gets steeper, it's nice to be able to call on the five levels of power assist to crest the road. So far, the bike is exactly what I was looking for. Like other reviewers, I found the seat uncomfortable for a longer ride, and plan on replacing it. I also wish it was possible to raise the handlebars a bit, but it's not a dealbreaker. I did not notice that there are no braze-ons for mounting a bottle cage, but have ordered a strap on cage which should do the trick. For the price and quality, this is a good bike. And the gift of a bike to someone in need is cream on the top.
I purchased the Story bike because I was no longer able to ride the hills in my area after mitral valve replacement. I took my first 12 mile ride yesterday and discovered that the hills disappeared. It was a stress free ride thanks to the pedal assist which I set at 1 or 2 for the most part. I like the weight of the bike and the gearing, both of which contributed to my reason for purchasing a Story road bike.
Got my bike about a month ago and haven’t looked back since. Great speed , gears switch smooth . The only problem is the seat . It’s a little to flat so I switched that out for a gel road seat. Biked 80 miles on it so far and plan on putting more miles on this bike
