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!
Adore my bike! Bought this to commute without the hassle of turning up sweat drenched. Quality is great and so is the range of the battery. Love it so much I tell everyone about 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!
My wife and I bought an AM1 + through Kickstarter. We are thrilled with the modern style, the low weight and the ease of use. The assembly was easy even for a layman to realize.
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.
The lightweight design makes it fun to ride even without electric assistance. It’s a beautiful bike.
Very good range and general feeling when riding the step+. I have been commuting with it for 5 months without a issues.
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.
Assembling the bike is not a big challenge for IKEA-experienced people. The descriptions are easy and very understandable.
The quality of the bike parts appear to be very good and the first test were very positive. I can’t wait to expand the testing during the next weeks. It seems to be a big success...
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.
It is a good thing, the speed, the weight and the look, thank you for this :-)
Es macht unheimlich viel Spaß mit dem am1+ durch die Gegend zu rasen. Ich schaffe auf Stufe 5/5 über 20 km Reichweite. Jedes Mal wenn ich vom Rad absteige habe ich ein Riesen grinsen im Gesicht!
Danke an das Team, die das möglich gemacht haben. Thanks to all the whole am Team!
It is a lot of fun with the am1 + racing through the area. I can do it at level 5/5 over 20 km range. Every time I get off the bike I have a big grin on my face!
Thanks to the team that made that possible. Thanks to all the whole team!
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
