My girlfriend has always struggled riding traditional bikes. The Step is an amazing bike that barely looks like an ebike. It has given her a new freedom to ride wherever she likes and she can now keep up with me on longer rides. I’m super jealous and might even consider getting an AMX for myself!
Great e-bike for the city with a huge advantage:It is lightweight!
AM1 is a revolutionary ebike! It offers all the advantages of an ebike, but it is just 14 kg! I am petite girl (50 kg), and I always struggled to bring the my old ebike inside my house and coming back from work after a long day, that was particularly annoying! The battery capacity for me it is not a problem at all, I live in a flat/slightly hilly area, so I use the power at minimum level most of the time, so the battery lats 30 miles at least.Another big advantage is that if you ran out of battery, you can easily use the AM1 as a normal bike! This is exactly what I was looking for, a lightweight ebike that I can use in the city under a 1000 pounds! Assembling the bike is not easy if you do not have a bit of mechanical knowledge, but it is funny and it allows you to know better your bike! Highly recommended!
Awesome bike from top to bottom, truly love it!!!!
As a bigger framed individual, I would’ve liked the slightly higher battery wattage found standard on their new models. By far the best bike I’ve ever owned!!! We’re saving up for another for my spouse.
The bike exceeded my expectations in everyway. The bike is comfy, the ride is smooth and speedy and, with some careful battery monitoring you can get much more than 20miles out of it! Im honestly super chuffed and wish this company all the best in their endeavours. Even planning to ride from London to Amsterdam on mine!
I bought the AM1+ and it’s amazing. Rides really smooth. Battery will last longer than expected. I have no regrets purchasing. Only feedback I would have is if there was Bluetooth capabilities with the mileage tracker and battery life.
Love the bike. My bike storage is vertical along the wall on a hook, so I'm glad it's so light otherwise I would be totally screwed. Love that you can remove the battery too. It could go a little faster, but that's not a huge deal; if I wipe out at 15-20mph I probably won't die, whereas if I wipe out at 30mph it might be my last. Overall amazing bike.
My work is about 12 miles commute from my place. Riding 5 days a week was always a challenge with steep hills along the way. Getting AM1+ has helped me to ride to work everyday without breaking a sweat. Its light, sleek and fun to ride.
This bike is awesome. It's clear there was some bike-loving passionate folk who designed it. Unlike other e-bikes I've ridden, this feels like they say: a bike with a battery. Just what I wanted, a regular ride on the flat, and then flatten the hills. The single speed isn't a compromise with the battery - I love the simplicity. I ride it 28km's round trip to work every day. I run it on 4/5 speed plus some boosting up little hills, and it's on it's last bar when I get home. I love the removable battery - great for errands in sketchier areas downtown. Downsides: I switched out the skinny bar, it was OK but didn't have room for lights and a wider bar is a comfier ride. The deep rims look cool, but it's kind of a pain to find replacement tubes with a long enough valve. Changing a flat is also an ordeal (maybe purposeful for anti-theft) need to remove the disk brake and fender to remove. And the battery gauge is kind of wonky, flashing empty then 5 minutes later back up to 3 bars. So you just have to get used to distance. The green color is very green especially with matching fenders. Looks cool! But if you want more stealthy look I'd suggest a more modest color choice :) Overall, awesome bike, I've already ordered and AMX carbon belt, so happy to support this company. Great customer service and happy to support such a passionate startup. Keep up the great work!
I would normally go for Form over Function but this bike has both. It looks awesome and rides like a dream. Quick acceleration and great manoeuvrability. Totally stripped down cool!!!!! Easy to assemble too!!!
Assambly is really not that complex as it may seem thanks to detailed instructions. Two areas where you may consider watching extra videos on youtube: a) brakes set-up, b) rear wheel alignment
My travel time to work reduced from 30 to 20 min (I used non e bike before). Moreover I got freedom to choose: if i want my legs to work, i switch off motor, the bike is still great just as normal bike! I can easily go 25 km/h without motor. If I want to get to work extra fast or I'm lazy - I switch on the motor. My first battery charge lasted for 50km of ride.
I ordered an AM1 and everything went perfectly well. I got quick answers to my questions on the chat when ordering and delivery in less than a week in France. Although I am not very good for DIY, putting the bike parts together was not too complicated and a great way to understand how the bike is built for ongoing maintenance. The bike is great to ride with a great design. I recommend analog motion 100%
Pleased with my AM1+ Step Bike. I recommend it already to a friend. She ordered the AMX Step Limited Edition. I could already order a battery with more power (24V, 7AH) with discount. A perfect city bike for Munich. Model looks like classic british bike, not screaming I am an E-bike.
I bought the Analog Motion Step bike as part of a cycle to work scheme. As an older person I was finding it difficult to keep cycling and this has given me the impetus to keep going. While it assists, it is still good exercise. It's a lovely bike to ride. My only comment would be to make sure you put your hand on the brake when stationary as the throttle can automatically surge if you move the pedals. Very light weight and looks like an ordinary bike so doesn't look conspicuous! Love it and the guys at Analog Motion are really helpful.
A beautiful, well crafted bicycle, that is easy to ride, maintain and looks great, oh, and is electric! Unlike most bikes in this genre, the AM1 doesn’t look electric and doesn't let the practicalities of motors, etc, get in the way of style :) Love it, have already ordered another!
Assembling the bike wasn't as easy as I expected - especially the brakes took me a couple of tries, until I was really certain. But now that I have the bike I am double as proud as I could be if I had bought it ready assembled from a shop.
Using it every day since I bought it. :)
I have now been riding AM1 for about 150km. Bike is really fast and it has shortened my 8km commuting time from 25 minutes to roughly 19 minutes one way. Also I don't need to take a shower when i get to the office which was the main reason why i bought this bike in the first place.
The bike looks amazing on pistachio green with black parts and fenders. Ride comfort is a bit tense so I am going to switch wider tires for next season. Overall I am happy with my bike and hopefully it will last for years to come.
Having the electric boost makes owning a single speed viable in my hilly city. Cruising speed is about 30km/hr on the flat and not much less going up the hills. Battery life is better than expected so far with some basic power management as you ride (turn down the assist whenever it makes sense). Very happy with it!
With my AM+ I ride 24km to work every day. That consumes about 50 - 70% of baterie depends of weather and traffic. Surprising is that I can get engine support up to 35km/h on level 5. Without support I can get up to 40km/h. I strongly recommend Adjustable Stem Pack for more comfortable ride position.
The AM1 definitely makes a huge promise about it's functionality when you see it on the website.. and damn, I was not disappointed!
The assembling was easy to manage by myself and after I got it a week ago, I was riding it every single day as much as possible!
It's just a lot of fun to have the motor on and it makes biking in the city much faster, especially at traffic lights! Since I live in quite a hilly city, it's perfect to go uphill with less effort.
But even with the motor turned off, it's super easy to ride it in flat areas.
The design is wonderful and with the pistachio green it's an eye-catcher!
Many thanks from Stuttgart to Nav & Jack for their wonderful work on this awesome bike!
The right balance between minimalism and functionality
I ordered two of these for my girlfriend and myself. Assembly was quite a bit more laborious than I imagined, but once that was done, the joy of the first rides quickly made us forget about that.
These bikes are really quite surprising in a very positive way, and feel great to ride. In our case the range seems quite a bit wider than 30km, more like 45km. I guess this depends a lot on how flat the terrain is and how often one has to stop at red lights. We're very happy about our purchase.
I took a little time to assemble, but it was also a lot of fun, and now I know almost all the screws on the bike. My first impressions are very good, it is a lot of fun to be on the road. 55/5000
The wait was worth it, thank you and all the best.
I was looking for a pedelec that looks cool and it isn’t too expensive which seemed like a contradiction. Luckily I found analog motion.
The setup took an afternoon and it was really not to complicated.
The bike kept all its promises. Next week I will try to install a thule chariot.
Mein AM1 Step + fährt sich gut, genau richtig für die Stadt. Die Batterie läßt sich schnell ausbauen und z. B. zum Einkauf gut mitnehmen. Die ersten Probefahrten im Freundeskreis haben bereits stattgefunden. Alle sind begeistert von der kompakten Form und dem für e bikes geringen Gewicht. Danke an Jack und Nav, sie haben ein richtig gutes bike entwickelt!
My AM1 Step + runs well, just right for the city. The battery can be removed quickly and z. B. good for shopping. The first test rides in the circle of friends have already taken place. Everyone is enthusiastic about the compact shape and the low weight for e bikes. Thanks to Jack and Nav, they have developed a really good bike!
Thanks so much for this design. I expected my AM1 would be good - but even in my landscape with 50m uphills it is so comfortable! The frame design is excellent. As an e-bike this is a must have for sportive bikers and I am sure, this bike is today a forecast how e-bikes will be designed much more future. Thanks a lot once again. Dirk
