E-Bikes & Bikes Customised to You
Hey everyone. I'm Dustin. I've nearly 20 years of experience in the e-bike and bike industry, and today I'm going to show you an easy-mounting electric bike for seniors over 60. Stick around.
All right, so today I'm going to show you an easy-mounting electric bike for seniors over 60. But before I do, hit that subscribe button below. Stay in touch with us here at sixthreezero. Be the first to know about all the new content, new products, and, of course, giveaways that we're doing here. All right, so right here I have the sixthreezero Simple Step-Thru electric bike, and I also have my riders here, Harry, who's 69, and Mama Shar, who's 71. And we do a lot of test rides with seniors, riders over 55, over 60. And a common problem I see is knee tightness, knee soreness, arthritis, and maybe surgeries that have limited or restricted movement, which is why we've come up with the Simple Step-Thru electric bike that we have here. Now, this is a 26-inch e-bike, so it's great for regular riding not as an e-bike or as an e-bike.
It's going to go up to 20 miles an hour with the throttle and 28 miles an hour with pedal assist. Also, your range is going to be 20 to 50 miles depending on the weight of the rider, and the conditions. That's why the range is so big. But this is a great e-bike. And, also, with these 26-inch tires, if you want to ride this like a regular bike and still get exercise, that is a great option. Sometimes with the smaller wheel sizes that you see out there, it's harder to pedal, and so it's not as easy to ride it as a regular bike. You could log serious miles on this as a regular bike. That's the beauty of it.
Now, the biggest, most impressive feature of this is even at a 26-inch frame, this is the lowest step-through I've seen out there for an e-bike. It's just about 13 and a half inches. And we're going to show you with Harry getting on and off, and Mama Shar getting on and off, really, how easy is it. So, Harry, why don't you go first just because we've got it already adjusted for you, and you can see for him to get on and off, go ahead and just mount it. He just puts his leg right through there, and then he can slide onto the seat. Now, the other piece of this is that it's got four custom adjustment points. We can adjust the tilt of the handlebars, the rise of the handlebars, the tilt of the seat, and the raise of the seat. He just rode this bike, so we already know it's adjusted well for him. You can see he's in an upright, ergonomic position.
And, again, this step-through is going to make it so safe and easy to get on and off. Should you need to get off at a moment's notice, you could just pull your foot out and, boom, you're off the bike. There you go. And so, again, I see this a lot. Things just tighten up over the years. It gets a little bit harder to raise your foot. So in this case, all you got to do is raise it just a little bit to kick it through. Sometimes people still do the kick over here, but even for me now, especially if you have batteries or racks back here, it just becomes a little more cumbersome. So, easy to get on and off.
Dustin: All right, Mama Shar, you're up.
Shar: Now, this is my bad knee, so I'm going to put the bad knee to the test.
Dustin: Yeah. Let's do it. And what is bad about it? Is there something that happened to it or it's just-
Shar: Yeah, I danced too hard last night, and it's locked up today.
Dustin: Fair enough.
Shar: Okay. And I'm not as tall as-
Dustin: Oh, let's, let's adjust the seat for you.
Shar: Yeah. Okay, perfect. Thank you.
Dustin: Okay, let's get that seat.
Shar: And I noticed that's very easy to do.
Dustin: Yes. I don't remember where we had it for you. Maybe right about there.
Shar: Yeah, that's good. We'll try that.
Dustin: Yep. So Mama Shar had never ridden a bike before. One thing I was going to say is we were teaching her to ride a bike, and it's important that getting on and off and keeping her low to the ground is important as she gets comfortable with it. And I think another thing is as you get a little bit older, there's a little more fear in your head. You don't want to crash. You want to be careful. Of course, we don't want to break bones or injure ourselves. So having this step through also with this forward pedaling design, which keeps the pedals forward, allows the seat to be a little bit lower to the ground while still getting leg extension when riding. It's going to keep you safer so you don't have to deal with, again, raising your leg, and getting all clunky. You just can focus on just riding the bike and balancing and having that confidence, which is important to stay up on the two wheels. So easy for you to get on and off?
Shar: Absolutely. Yeah. Look. Yep. And that's the bad knee, so that's a good one.
Dustin: Yeah. And, again, as Mama Shar said, she danced last night, and her knee was a little tighter. You don't want to have a bike maybe some days you can get on and some days you can't get on. So at least with the low step-through, your body's going to be able to do it every day of the week. So there we have it, our easy-mounting electric bike for seniors over 60 and 70.
