Step-Through (Step Thru) Electric Bikes are bikes without a top tube. They are getting much more popular as it’s much easier to get on and get off these bikes and they can be shared among all family members regardless of their gender and age.  Step-through bikes used to be called “women bikes”, which was an incorrect stereotype. Actually, step-through bikes can be used by any gender and age group if you appreciate the benefits they provide.

An electric bike with a step-through frame is basically made in a V shape with no top tube. Normally on such bikes you can easily step through the frame without having to lift your leg high while getting on and off. Such bikes are known to give you the luxury of a “comfortable” ride compared to step-over bikes as they provide a slightly more upright sitting position that of course removes the pressure off your back muscles.

Step-through bikes are made heavier merely because there is no top bar to hold the front and end parts of the frame together, so the bike frame will be less solid and not secured enough. The solution to this is that the frame is made of more resistant material so that it is not deformed under pressure.  That is the very reason it feels a bit heavier. But at any rate, the extra weight will not be noticeable in step-through e-bikes as the power of motor takes the weight off your legs.

In regular bikes (non-electric), step-through bikes can be a bit slower as they are a bit heavier. However, the same thing does not much apply to step-through electric bikes. Clearly, with the convenient assistance of the motor in e-bikes, step-through bikes can be as fast as the step over ones.

Actually the seating position on a bike affects the speed much more that the frame type. So bikes that provide upright seating position are usually slower than the bikes on which you need to lean forward to reach the grips. As when you lean forward you have better control on the handlebars and can push the pedals harder. However, the ride on bikes with upright seating position is more relaxed and fun and safer for senior riders or riders with back injuries.  

It can be. There are two reasons for that. One is the shape of the bike that might feel somewhat clumsy as there is no top bar to hold while carrying it around. The other reason can be the weight factor that can make it challenging for some riders to carry it up stairs or lift the bike off ground to pass it over any obstacle.

There are two solutions: 

  • You can buy a bike top tube adapter that from one end attaches to the handlebars and from the other end attaches to the seat post. So in this way you are making your bike a step-over bike so that you can put it on a bike rack
  • Or alternatively you can buy bike racks that are compatible with step though bikes. 

If you are going to share the bike with other family members, buying a step-through bike is probably the right choice. Senior people, people with back or knee pain or injury prefer step through bikes. Most women prefer the relaxed ride on step through bikes over the ride on step over bikes. Also shorter riders usually feel more secure on step through bikes and find them much easier to use.   

It would be a bit old-fashioned to relate step-through bikes to women only. But it is true that women can easily get a smooth ride on these bikes without the risk of ripping their dresses and skirts on the top bar. But generally the idea is that the frame structure can even work for men in cases when they’re dressed up in formal clothes, suits or any attire that might feel uncomfortable to lift legs while mounting and dismounting the saddle. But one thing which is for sure is that step-through bikes are absolutely unisex and can easily be used by female and male riders both.

One thing to keep in mind is that the point of step-through bikes is comfort. So it can work best for whoever looking for a smooth, comfortable fun ride. Generally, if you are included in any of the groups of riders below, do not hesitate to vote for a step-through bike:

  • If you commute daily in your formal attire
  • If you are usually dressed up in skirts, dresses or any outfit of this kind
  • If you are interested in casual but not speedy rides
  • If you are a fan of upright riding position
  • If you have to repeatedly mount and dismount the bike for different reasons like delivery riders, postmen and etc. Overall, step-through bikes are the best fit for rides with a lot of stops on the way.
  • If you and your family all intend to get a ride from it occasionally. The structure of the frame allows everyone with different heights and physical conditions to enjoy yourself and have a ball. It is true that anyone, tall or short, can easily get off the saddle to step on ground whenever they lose balance. In bikes with a top tube this can be a nightmare for shorter people.
  • Seniors and those suffering from knee pain or any other limited agility
  • City riders who are unlikely to get off-road or get on steep hills or any tricky terrain

All in all, if you are the kind of rider who wants to get comfort out of a bike, riding a step-through, you will be full of the joys of spring.

In some cases, Yes. Let’s say you are riding a bike with a saddle higher than it should be and for some reasons, your feet cannot touch the ground when you stop the bike. In that situation, being on a step-through is way safer as you can get off the saddle with ease and get yourself in a standing position. Obviously, in a bike with a top tube, there is a chance of falling over on one side as it is more difficult to use feet to control the unbalance.

All said, you must be wondering: “If step-through gives the most comfort and safeness, why are step-over bikes even there?!”

Well, step-through definitely works for many riders, but not for everyone. For example, if you are a cyclist with a passion for speed and if you are going to ride off-road mostly, if you are planning on going on long rides without stopping, if you’re a heavy rider looking for something light weight or handy to carry around, and finally, if you need attachments like water bottle or bag holders on your bike frame, most probably you should not consider step-through bikes because that is not what they are made for.
