Step Through Classic 7

  • Sale
  • Regular price $1,000.00


The Step Through was designed with simplicity and practicality in mind. We’ve removed the flourish in favor of features that make riding your bike fun again. The Step Through features a mixed-chromoly frame to reduce weight, a rear rack for all your cargo, and fenders and a full chaincase to keep you clean and dry. The 1 speed features a simple coaster brake; the 3 and 7 speeds feature an internal gear system to keep things ultra-simple. The 8 speed features a quality rear derailleur using top quality Shimano components.

PRACTICAL. RELIABLE. SOLID. 

We like to focus on the details — this means every part of the bike is carefully considered to ensure your new ride exceeds your every expectation. Hopefully you’ll even find a few surprises once you’re home from the shop.

CHAINCASE 

All of our models feature a full length chaincase. We designed this case to fully protect both you and your bike from grease coming off your chain. You won’t have to worry about tucking in your pant legs or oiling your chain as often. Phew.

FENDER AND HUB 

Our 3 and 7 speed models use a clever design that puts all the gears inside the rear wheel hub. This means you can easily shift gears and you don’t have to worry about the chain falling off. To keep you clean, all Simcoe models feature high-quality, stylish fenders.

WASHERS 

Our fenders come installed with unique leather washers. We use leather because it helps ensure that your bike will not squeak or rattle, and leather washers help prevent corrosion if you ride through the winter. Bet your last bike didn’t have these!

BARS, BRAKES & SHIFTERS 

The handlebar and stem on our bikes keep you upright and comfortable, without having to reach too far or put pressure on your wrists. We then use convenient thumb shifters for quick and accurate shifting.

SMART GEOMETRY DESIGNED FOR RIDING IN THE CITY 

Traveling by bike in a dense urban environment requires a bike that is both nimble and stable, not just one or the other. Your Simcoe bike is designed to stay glued to the ground while you thread your way around pedestrians, cars and potholes. At Simcoe, we put an incredible amount of thought and experience into our geometry. We call it CitySmart, and it offers the smartest, safest, and most enjoyable geometry on the market today.
