Why Buy a Stepthrough?

Stepthroughs are one of the most popular style of bike we sell here at Perth Electric Bicycles and they offer a number of advantages over the more conventional diamond framed bikes. They typically offer a more comfortable, upright riding position that affords good all round vision and are also significantly easier to get on and off for those with knee and hip injuries. These features combine to make an incredibly practical and easy to ride bike, ideal for running errands and enjoying a more relaxed rides with family and friends. Additionally, they’re ideal for people new to cycling or for those who are lacking confidence on the bike. They’re also a great choice for electric conversion to make them the ultimate town bike!

Going Electric

Stepthrough bikes are often ideal for electric conversion, but there are a couple of things to consider, most importantly: where to fit the battery. Oftentimes, a rear-rack style battery is the best option for this, given that they don’t encroach on the stepthrough clearance whilst also providing useful storage capacity. This can, on occasion make the bike a bit tail-heavy, however, this can be offset to some extent by opting for a front wheel motor kit.

There are, however, a number of newer stepthrough designs that have sufficient clearance to mount a central battery which greatly benefits handling balance by keeping the additional weight central and as low down as possible. Bikes such as the Specialized Roll, the Avanti Metro and others will allow for this. For the best bike in this category, however, look no further than the Norco Scene.

The Norco Scene has been around for about a year now and in that time has become a shop favourite for how it takes an electric conversion and, more importantly, how well it rides! With its lightweight, single bar alloy frame and an excellent riding position it’s a great all rounder for everyday use. Other features such as disc brakes and generously sized city tyres allow for dependable, not to mention comfortable performance.

We’ve fitted it with our centrally mounted PANASONIC Tigershark battery that has minimal intrusion into the frame clearance and a 250 Watt rear-drive motor. That said, this bike has enough versatility to accommodate a wide variety of different electric conversion kits that we offer.
