20" Compact, Lightweight EBike Fits Riders 4'11" to 6'2" - Small Electric Bike w/ Low Step Thru

Today we're going to do a fitting and sizing of riders from 4'11 to 6'2 and we have some of our riders behind us here from 4'11 to 5'6 the other set of riders will come later and we're going to show you how we can fit and size them to the Simple Step-Thru 20 inch 500-watt electric bike. All right, so before we get into the fitting and the sizing of the Simple Step-Thru 20 inches, I want to walk you through some of the features. This is a 500-watt rear hub motor, so you're going to be able to hit 20 miles an hour by just using the throttle or 21 miles an hour with pedal assist. You have five levels of pedal assist, one, two, three, four, and five. You can decide how much assistance you want. You also have a thumb throttle here. Push that and you don't have to pedal at all. 10.4 amp hour battery is going to give you a range of up to 50 miles. It's going to depend on the weight of the rider, the terrain you're riding, and also what combination of pedal assist or throttle you're using. You use more throttle, you drain the battery quicker. If you use pedal assist in lower levels, you get more range. We have a chart on our website that will detail the expected range based on your usage. Now you're going to see in the videos, that this is very adjustable to varying heights. You have an easy quick release up here. And you also have this stem right here that can fold down and it's easy to put into cars and to transport. And we have other videos you can see where we do load this into a car. So also very light by e-bike standards. It's 53 pounds. And if you take the battery off, it drops it down to 45 pounds. So light, compact, easy to transport e-bike. You also have a seven-speed derailleur, so if you wanna ride it without using the assistance, you can do that. It's a lot of fun, and easy to shift. And without further ado, let's make our way into the sizings and fittings so you can see how riders 4'11 to 6'2 fit this e-bike.

Dustin: All right, we are here with our first rider, Suzanne. She's 4'11, and what was your arm length and your inseam?

Suzanne: My arm length is 17 inches, and then my inseam is 24. 

Dustin: Okay, so her arm length is 17 inches and her inseam is 24. So if you want to try to get on the bike just go ahead and step through the frame there.

Suzanne: Okay.

Dustin: And slide back.

Suzanne: Slide back and get on the seat?

Dustin: Well see like put the bike up with your feet down. There you go. All right there we go. So she's up on her tippy toes a little bit. So not too bad. In an ideal world, now we are going to be able to shift that rack back a little bit to bring the seat down about an inch. We can't do that right now.

Suzanne: Okay.

Dustin: But you can see it's not bad. We probably want to get it down another inch to maybe get her feet a little closer to the ground. But how do the handlebars feel, the location?

Suzanne: The handlebars feel amazing. Yeah, very comfortable, and I'm not, like, leaning forward or anything too much, which is an issue with me with bikes, so that feels good.

Dustin: Let me try something, too, just really quick. I just want to see if this makes it any better or worse for you because we can actually.

Suzanne: Yeah, that's nice.

Dustin: Better? Yep. I had a feeling it would be.

Suzanne: Yeah, that was good.

Dustin: Yep there we go.

Suzanne: Awesome, yeah that's very nice.

Dustin: So that's a cool thing. You can adjust, tilt the handlebars, raise and lower and once we adjust that rack for the future rendition, we'll get a little lower for her for you. So with 24-inch inseam 4’11”, it can work for her, ideally a little lower. 

But do you feel comfortable on there?

Suzanne: Overall? Yeah, I think as you said, about an inch lower would be like perfect. But overall, I feel very comfortable. It's a comfortable bike. And so that's nice. But yeah, I am on my tippy toes.

Dustin: So well, then later in another video, we'll see her test ride and we'll see how she feels up and riding. So let's move on to our five-foot rider. Okay, now we're here with Ashley. She has a 29-inch inseam and 19-inch arm lengths. So much taller, with a longer inseam than our 4’11” rider. So if you want to go ahead and sit down. Okay, so you, yeah, you have much longer legs. So let me raise this seat for you. And this is why the inseam measurement is most important. and the arm length measurement. So let's go ahead and bring the seat up. Okay, so try that now. Does that feel a little better? Or should we bring it up even more? I think maybe more. Put the, let's see. Try that. Put your right foot down. Yeah, let's bring it up just a little bit more. Okay, go ahead and try that now. Maybe a little too high. Okay, I'll bring it down just a touch. So the nice thing about the quick release is it's easy to adjust. There we go. I think that's pretty good. What do you think about the handlebar? So now you have longer arms, so we can pull these. 

So how's that? Let's try that. You can figure out where you like it best.

Ashley: I think I like it closer.

Dustin: Okay.

Ashley: Cause then I can lean into it. I like the grip on them too.

Dustin: And then they can come up if you want as well. I don't know if that's better or worse. There we have it. Cool. so I think we got a good fit for her. You can see her arms are nice and relaxed. Her back is upright and yeah the longer inseam, we had to raise the seat. So it'll be interesting as we move through all the heights to see how the height and the inseam affect the sizing. So let's move on to our five-foot-one rider. Okay, now we're here with Victoria. She's five foot one. She also has a 29-inch inseam and 17-inch arms. So I left the seat at the same height. So why don't you try and see You can step through the frame to mount it a little bit easier. There you go. Slide back on. Can you get your feet down a little high? So let's lower just a touch for you if you want to get off real quick. Let me bring it down just a little bit. Okay, try that. Yeah, that looks a little bit better. Does that feel comfortable? And then sit back on the seat, put your butt, there you go. And how do the handlebars feel, it looks pretty good.

Victoria: Yeah.

Dustin: I think we've got a good fit. So yeah, we've got a nice upright, relaxed she's got the bars close to her body, and her feet are in a good pedaling position. I think we've got a good fit for her. So let's move on up to our five-foot-two rider. Okay now we're with our five foot two rider Katie she's got a 27-inch inseam. And 17-and-a-half-inch arms, you said, right? 16 and a half-inch arms. Now again, we're moving up in height, but we've just moved down an inseam. So if you want to step on let's see how it fits you. Okay, so it's kind of low actually. So let's go ahead and move the seat up. So if you want to get off quickly. Let's try right there. Okay, go ahead and give that a shot. That looks a lot better. Does that feel okay?

Katie: It feels comfortable, yeah.

Dustin: And how about the handlebars?

Katie: This feels good to me.

Dustin: Let's see. Better? Worse?

Katie: I like it down a little lower. Yeah, that's nice.

Dustin: Okay. And how is the closeness to your body? Good?

Katie: Yes, it's good.

Dustin: Good. Yeah, she looks like she's got a nice upright back. Good leg extension down on the ground. So she'll get good pedal extension. So we've got a good fit. Let's move up to our 5'3 rider. Okay, now we're here with Stephanie. She's five foot three. She's got a 26-inch inseam. And what was your arm's length again? 17 inch. So again, we keep moving up in height, down, and inseam. So go ahead and step on. Let's see how it fits for you. Now just try to get that right. So yeah, okay. So the seat's too high. So you can tell from our five foot two rider, taller inseam. So go ahead and jump off. I'll just lower it down a little bit for you. And if you step through the frame, which is a little easier to get out, there you go. How does that feel, too high or better?

Stephanie: Better.

Dustin: Okay, and how about the handlebars for you?

Stephanie: Yeah, they feel good.

Dustin: You were 16-inch arm, right?

Stephanie: 17.

Dustin: 17 inch. Perfect, so we got a good fit for her as well. Now again, playing with the seat height, it's easy as the inseam changes. I've left the handlebars in the same position because everyone seemed to like it there, but we can adjust those. So let's move up to our 5'4 rider. All right, now we're here with Maria, who's 5'4. Maria has a 28-inch inseam, right? An 18-inch arm length. So if you want to go ahead and get on, let's see how this is for you. How does that feel in terms of your foot position?

Maria: Feels good.

Dustin: Yeah? And how about the handlebars? Too reachy? Okay?

Maria: Forward.

Dustin: Forward, okay. Let's try to do that. Okay, find the place that's good for you. Okay. So you like it a little bit more stretched out in front of you?

Maria: This is more comfortable.

Dustin: Okay, and she had an inch longer arm than our previous rider, so we can easily move those back and find a good position. So we got a good fit for Maria at 5'4". Let's move up to our 5'5 rider. Okay, now we're here with Tasha, who's 5'5". She has a, what was your inseam again? Sorry.

Tasha: 29.

Dustin: 29 and 18 and a half-inch arms. So if you want to step on, we'll see how we fit in size for you. Okay, so we got to bring the seat up. So if you want to jump off quickly. So that's actually like the first time we've moved up in height where the inseam has moved up. That's exciting for us. Get to try something new here. All right, try that. So this is the highest we've had the seat. That seems to be, yeah, lean towards your right foot. Like, take the bike. There you go. Perfect. How does that feel? Feels good. And how about the handlebars? Do you want them closer to you?

Tasha: I think a little bit closer.

Dustin: Okay. Okay. And they can be raised or lowered too. Good? Okay. All right. There we go. So again, nice upright back, relaxed arms, and we've got a good fit for Tasha at five foot five. So let's move up to our five-foot-six rider. Okay, now we're here with Madeline. She's five foot six and she has a 33-inch inseam. And what was your arm's length? Sorry.

Madeline: 19.

Dustin: 19-inch arm. So go ahead and step on and we'll see how we can fit in size to you. So actually that looks pretty good in terms of your feet. How does everything else feel for you?

Madeline: It feels really good actually.

Dustin: Yeah.

Madeline: Oh, I like it.

Dustin: Cool. Yeah. The handlebars look good. Her arms are relaxed. She's upright. The feet are in a good position, so you should get a good pedal on the downstroke. So we got a good fit for Madeline at 5'6". Let's move up to our 5'7 rider. All right, now we're gonna move into our taller riders from 5'7” to 6'2", and you're gonna see how this Simple Step-Thru 20 inches can actually accommodate their heights because of the seat, raising and lowering the seat, and also the adjustability on the stem. So stick around and here we go. All right, now we got Peter at 5'7", and what was your inseam?

Peter: 30? 

Dustin: 30. And your arm length?

Peter: 19.

Dustin: 19. All right, go ahead and have a seat. And then put the bike upright. Put your foot on the ground, your right foot on the ground. That seems pretty good. In terms of the handlebars, do you like them there?

Peter: Yeah.

Dustin: You do? Okay. Yeah. It looks nice and relaxed. The bars come right into his body. His back's upright. We got a good fit. So let's move up to our 5.9 rider. All right now we got Jason at five foot nine and what was your inseam?

Jason: It was 30.

Dustin: 30. And your arms.

Jason: 21.

Dustin: 21. Okay go ahead and sit down. Okay and put that right foot down. Does that feel too low or feel okay?

Jason: No, it feels okay. 

Dustin: Okay, how about the handlebars?

Jason: I like the handlebars here.

Dustin: Yeah. Let me just show you what we could do actually.

Jason: Oh, that works.

Dustin: Better?

Jason: Yeah, that works.

Dustin: Okay. Yeah, there we go. Yeah, you got them. They come right into your body. Good control right there. All right. Got a good fit for Jason at five foot nine let's move up to five-ten all right we got Travis at five foot ten and what was your inseam?

Travis: 29.

Dustin: 29 and your arm length?

Travis: 21.

Dustin: 21. all right go ahead and get on there. And put that right foot down. And, yeah, put the bike upright, like straight.

Travis: Like, like yeah.

Dustin: Like there you go. Lower? Okay. Let's drop it down for you.

Travis: More control.

Dustin: Yeah. Alright, try that. Do you like that better? Now how about the bars right there?

Travis: Do the bars go out of it?

Dustin: Yep. Good? Cool. Got a good fit for Travis at 5'10". Let's move up to our 5'11 rider. All right, we got Kyle at 5'11". What was your inseam?

Kyle: 27 inches.

Dustin: 27 and your arm's length?

Kyle: 22.

Dustin: 22. Go ahead and get on. Let's see. All right, seats are low, I think. So let's go ahead and raise the seat for you. All right, let's try that. That looks a lot better. And how about the handlebars?

Kyle: I think maybe a little bit higher.

Dustin: We're getting close to the max. So that's as high as they can go.

Kyle: Oh yeah. I still feel comfortable.

Dustin: We could bring them. Oh, you want them up this way more, but yeah. So we're at the maximum actual height. So as we get.

Kyle: I mean, it still feels comfortable.

Dustin: Okay. All right, there we go. Now, as we get into the taller Heights, this is a 20-inch. So we'll see how it fits on the six, six-one, six-two, the Simple Step-Thru. If you like the step-thru and you're that tall, you probably want to opt for our 26-inch version. depending on how you see our taller rider size. So let's move up to the six-foot rider. All right, we got Braxton now six feet, 33-inch inseam, 22-inch arms. We got the seat pretty high up. Go ahead and see if that's going to work for you. So he's going to be a little cramped, it looks like. Can you spin the pedal backward? Oh, we got to.

Braxton: Yeah, the kickstand. I got you. Excuse me.

Dustin: You have to get off.

Braxton: That's all good.

Dustin: Let me see. There we go. All right.

Braxton: All right. You need to push this kickstand back.

Dustin: That's good. I mean, yeah, it's going to be leg is going to be maybe a little bit cramped. Let's see if I can get the seat up just a touch for you. All right. So that's our max seat height. So see if that feels any better. And then put your right foot on the ground. That doesn't seem too bad.

Braxton: It feels good.

Dustin: Yeah? And how about the handlebars for you?

Braxton: I like them here.

Dustin: Yeah?

Braxton: Yeah, yeah. I get a little bit closer, yeah. 

Dustin: Cool. All right, there we go. So we got a fit for Braxton. Now, again, it's going to get dicey as we get over six feet. He likes this, which is good. Let's move up to our six-foot-one rider. All right, now I'm with Mike who's six foot one. He's got a 32-inch inseam and 23-inch arms. Go ahead and have a seat. I don't know if that seat's gonna be too high for you or not. Seems okay actually. And now the bars are as high as they can go. So I don't know if you would want them like farther away to get your arms out or…

Mike: I like them in actually.

Dustin: You liked them, right? Yeah. His back's upright, his arms are still relaxed. It's not like he's leaning forward. So it looks good. And he says it feels good. This is where the inseams, arm lengths, and heights all kind of combine to a particular fit for a rider. So let's move up to 6'2 and see how that rider fits. All right, we're with Ryan now, our final rider. He's 6'2, 33-inch inseam, but I have this gut feeling he may be a little bit taller. What was your arm's length again?

Ryan: 24.

Dustin: 24, right. Go ahead and get on and let's see. Yeah, so in a perfect world, he'd have a higher seat, I think. That's as high as we can put this seat up. So if he felt comfortable doing it, he could. Otherwise, if he wants better leg extension, I'd move him to our 26 version of the same bike. You know, again, up to him. If he's not gonna pedal much, you could use it and zip around because his arms and back and whatnot look comfortable. Am I wrong or?

Ryan: No, oh no, I feel great. Yeah.

Dustin: Yeah, but the legs are going to be a little bit cramped on the downstroke. So, but again, everything else is okay. So if you've got north of a 33-inch inseam, you're not going to get the best leg extension on the 20-inch. Anything under that looks like you'll get decent leg extension but over 33 inches, I think moving to the 26-inch version may be a good option. But then again, on the 20-inch, you get this nice compact design where the bars are right there. It's zippy and fun. So, that concludes all the riders. Stick around for the summary.
