Once upon a time low step frames (step through) were reserved for the ladies in dresses and skirts and step over bikes were for the men in their trousers. Back then, however, they did not have a 350 watt motor in their bike either!
We have come along way since then and nowadays the comfort and convenience of a low step is available to everyone.
Unparalleled Accessibility - A low step frame allows the rider to mount and dismount their bike easily and effortlessly. This is exceptionally helpful for people who might struggle a little bit physically to lift their leg over a high step frame, whether due to injury or age.
Increased Confidence - The step-through frame because of its accessibility is ideal for riding in urban areas that require a lot of stopping and starting. The ability to simply step off the saddle and stand up straight to regain your balance if needed (especially if the bike is a bit tall for you) is a great advantage and confidence booster for city riders. That is one of the reasons a lot of couriers choose this style of bike.
Pleasantly Practical - Commuting to work with a Blix electric bike is great for many reasons. One of the best reasons is that you do not need to wear the lycra uniform and you arrive at the office feeling fresh and energized. With a low step frame, you can easily ride into the office wearing your professional attire and not have to worry about embarrassing rips once you dismount!
It's Fun! - The low step frame makes it easy to hop on and off the bike as you travel to the corner shop or the local coffee shop - put your coffee in the Blix front basket (with a built-in cup holder!) and you're back on the road in moments!
Long gone are the days when we had men's and ladies bikes - now we are in the age of what works best for me? If you are not the most flexible person on the planet, if you like to ride into work wearing your best suit or dress or if you simply just enjoy the freedom of being able to hop on and off your bike, test ride a step-through today!
