Overview Of A Step-Through Bicycle
This type of bike was developed in the late 1800s and early 1900s with the idea that when women wearing skirts, could get on and off their bikes without having to lift their leg, and obviously show more than they'd like to. In this day and age, women don't wear dresses quite as much. Women wear pants, but the traditional design has stayed with us. It's a very classy, elegant design. It's a very euro look, but aside from that, it's very practical. The other benefit of someone that may have very short legs and you have trouble getting on and off the bike, a step-through frame is a great idea. It's very easy to step through, sit down and get on, and to get off of. In addition, for someone that's just a little bit shorter in general, the step through is a great option or for anybody that has balance issues or is not comfortable having to lift their leg, again, to mount or dismount. Typically, step-through frames tend to be popular for a lot of riders.
55 and older, or someone that you know would rather be a little bit closer to the ground or when you stop, it's a little bit easier to straddle the frame of the bike if the bar is really high, getting off the bike and straddling the frame can be very difficult. So typically, you do see step-through bikes, more common for women. However, more bikes are becoming unisex with a step-through frame. A lot of men are preferring to have a bike that's easy to get on and off as they don’t need the top tube or the top tube to be high for their inseam. We have some bikes that actually could go unisex. The EVRYjourney, for instance, has several colors like the navy. It's a step-through frame as well, and both men or women can easily ride.
We do encounter a lot of men who prefer to ride a step-through bicycle. If being low to the ground, or if you have short legs and want ease getting on and off your bike, a step-through frame would be a great option for you. So don't forget you can check out some of ours, such as the Ride In The Park, and the Body Ease. We call it a women's version, but really can be for men or women as the frame is not particular to any gender. So take a look, go to the ‘shop’ page, and check out our bikes.
