I’m ready to purchase Lectric bikes for me and my wife. We are both in our 60’s and are looking for a little exercise in a relaxing way. I’m getting the XP step-thru model for my wife and pondering the same model for myself. I’ve already addressed the issue of possibly hitting my knee on the folding hinge bracket on the “men’s” model so I think that is a non issue. Is there any advantage of going with the step thru model over the XP as far as comfort or ease of operation? I’m not looking at this as a macho decision (ok, maybe a little) but are there other males out there that went with the step-thru model?
