What’s The Difference Between Men’s And Women’s Bicycles?
Generally speaking, women’s bodies are different from men’s in a variety of ways. The typical woman is shorter, has less muscle mass, and has narrower shoulders than the typical man.
In order to account for these differences and provide a more comfortable riding experience, many women’s bicycles have shorter top tubes and reduced stem lengths. This style of bicycle would be best suited to women who are shorter than average or petite in build. However, it is important to remember that whilst in general women’s bodies are different from men’s bodies, people do come in a wide range of different shapes and sizes. This means that some women may feel more comfortable riding a bicycle that is marketed as a man’s bicycle, and vice versa.
Additionally, it is important to note that women’s bicycle saddles are often different to men’s bicycle saddles. For women, the saddle should provide support to their bones whilst sitting, however it should also relieve pressure on soft tissue. So if you find a unisex or man’s bicycle frame better suited to cycling style, you might consider swapping the seat to a ladies bicycle saddle.
What About The Step-Through Bike?
In the United Kingdom, step-through bicycles are often marketed as women’s bicycles. However, it is important to note that just like ‘men’s bicycles’, they are not exclusive for women. Indeed, across The Channel in Europe, as many men ride step-through bikes as women.
What eBike Should You Choose?
eBikes can be used for a wide variety of different activities ranging from exercise, to leisure, to commuting. As such, electric bikes come in a variety of different shapes and sizes to meet these needs. We have a wide range of ladies electric bikes available on our online store, you can choose from bikes including but not limited to:
Something For Smaller Ladies If you’re smaller than average or petite, we recommend the Axcess Exmoor. This eBike might be small in size but it still travel far and fast, with a range of 35 miles. Due to the size of the bike, we recommend this model for people between the heights of 5’ and 5’5”. Additionally, this bike also has a great feature for those new to the eBike community. In addition to its budget friendly price, the battery on this electric bike cannot be overcharged as the battery charger turns itself off when the battery is full.
Achieve Your Fitness Goals If you would like to purchase an eBike in order to reach new fitness goals, we recommend the Alpine Sport. It has a range of up to 70 miles, giving you the power you need to cycle for longer. However, the features of this bicycle don’t end there; this bicycle also has puncture resistant tyres and self-adjusting hydraulic disc brakes.
Commuting To Work When commuting to work on a bicycle, many people choose a fold up bicycle because of the convenience of being able to fold the bicycle up when they’re not riding it. That being said, fold up bikes do have their share of disadvantages, often they have shorter wheels and smaller frames, which can make cycling difficult at times. However, these disadvantages can be mitigated by choosing to ride an electric folding bike instead of a normal folding bicycle. Our online store has three folding bikes to choose from, the LifeCycle Traveller, the LifeCycle Buzz, and the Axcess Shetland. Additionally, if you purchase the Buzz during the winter, you could take advantage of our Buzz Bike Winter Sale. If you purchase a Buzz bike this winter, you can do so at the low price of just £599. However, if you’re considering purchasing two electric bikes, you’ll have the opportunity to save even more money as two Lifecycle Buzz eBikes will cost just £1000. That’s a saving of £398!
