Is this the famous Vanmoof lady?

That's great. Just wondering, is this the Venmoof lady who upset the uptight cop in NYC, and inspired a whole protest ride?

Girl bike is not for girls

We old guys are the ones who need the step through frame. Stiff joints are well accommodated by my Brompton with low tube, though pedaling eastbound on Charles Street can make a different kind of trouble.

Another way...

...might be to tip the bike so low that you can step over it, and step into the upturned pedal as you straighten up? I don't wear a skirt, but it seems to work. Just don't steal anyone's bike showing them!

One more reason...

...to ride a small wheeled folding bike.

Great little Video

Hey,

I enjoyed your video. I contribute to the social media and website for a bike-sharing company and would love to see more of these. If you ever have shorts you'd care to share, I would love to see them.

Why worry?

I say get on and off your bike whatever way is easiest for you, and wear whatever you want. If someone is that interested in a split second of panty-flashing, give 'em a thrill!

Step Through is Weak

They do still make step through street bicycles, and not just for women. However, the frame design is structurally weak and limits the utility of the bike. Many women, myself included, much prefer a standard top-tube. I'm not an aggressive rider, just a sometimes commuter and more of a picnic biker. I love the method for mounting shown in this video. It's cute and intelligent, if not entirely practical. There are so many methods for skirt mounting, would love to see a compilation video.

What ever happened to?

When did manufacturers stop making step through street bicycles for women? Never used to have a problem with proper women's bikes!

soooo stylish

can we use this video in an ad campaign to get more women to ride bikes? Even blokes would look good doing this (not in the skirt though)

Lovely trick, but...

...can't I just wear shorts or capri leggings under the skirt and call it good? I really think I'd fall and crack my head open if I tried that.

I don't dare!

I'm pretty sure I would fall off and suffer a head injury if I tried that.
