Designed for convenience and comfort, Story Step Through Electric Bikes are perfect for an effortless and joyful ride on a beautiful day, which is why it was chosen as one of Oprah's Favorites Things!
All our bikes come 95% assembled with all the tool necessary included making it easy to put together at home.
The unique easy-adjust handlebar and seat move up or down quickly without the need of any tools, making it our most versatile bike for riders of any size, or for sharing within a family.
With its curved, open, step-through frame design (often referred to as a Dutch bike), it makes getting on and off the bike trivial, even for those with limited mobility or difficulty getting their leg over standard frames.
It also comes ready for any weather or trip with front and rear fenders, integrated front headlight, and a rear-mounted rack. But don’t forget the 350w electric motor and Shimano 7-speed gearing to help you get up those local hills or maybe cruising at top-speed as you go around them.

We are so happy with our purchase. It’s darling, comfortable and I’d buy it again!!
Pros: Nice looking, clean lines, lightweight good components. Cons: overpriced, underpowered, loud motor. Would not recommend. Would be a good buy at $1200, but $2000 (with tax) was stupid of me.
I live in NYC and started to use the local citi bikes to get more movement in and avoid the subway. I realized having my own e-bike could be a game changer and a friend of mine told me about Story Bikes. I got my bike within a week after ordering. It came with everything assembled except the pedals, handle bar, and needing to put on the LCD screen and bell on the handle bars. I watched the youtube video tutorial to help me put it together (which I recommend) and story bike's chat system online was very responsive to any questions I asked. I've put about 65 miles on the bike so far and here's what I love about it:
+ The seat it comes with is comfortable. I thought I would have to change it but it's been great so far.
+ I've gotten a lot of compliments on the bike itself, it's sleek and doesn't look like a standard e-bike.
+ It's lighter weight than other e-bikes, so it's easy to handle, also manages bumpier roads well.
+ Breaks are responsive.
+ Love that there's 5 speeds of pedal assist, many times I don't have to go above 3 out of the 5 speeds to get where I need to go, or up hills. The torque sensor also means I can pull off from stops with ease.
+ It charges up pretty fast, can go from 0% to 100% battery in about 3-4 hours.
small things I haven't liked:
+ the rear fender was twisted into the back bike spokes when it arrived. It wasn't too hard to fix but the rear fender needing to be attached is a new thing they have changed according to the info I got, and don't currently have in the youtube tutorial when putting the bike together, but the chat system online was very helpful with this.
+ the stitching on the leather hand grips on the handle bars are already starting to fray a little bit, and concerned about the grips starting to wear a bit so soon.
+ the battery isn't the strongest you'll be able to find out there (and it's a good deal still for the price). I can get about 15 miles on the bike when at the highest speed assist, and about 25 miles when I keep the speed assist below 3. I'm also a thick person so your miles will vary but if you ride frequently and take longer rides like I do, you'll have to charge it pretty frequently.
Overall if you're looking for a solid, pretty, affordable e-bike, can't recommend a better option!
Love my new e step through bike. Easy to use, easy to get on and off.
The bike is a welcome addition to my bicycle park. I am able to manage the Seattle area hills and still have to work doing that (nice!). She seems to have a similar weight as my 26-year old Trek "Schlepper", which is awesome, because you could still ride home if the battery gave up on you (that has not happened), or perhaps even put her on a bus rack (not planned at this point). Vaude-bicycle bags fit well, so I'll be able to run shopping errands here. More another time when I am more experienced.
