Electric "road" bike
This is my first try posting on anything, but I've hit a wall and don't know where to get some info. I'm a 54 y/o woman and former avid cyclist who has had MS for 32 years. I'm entered into a more progressive form of the disease, but I'm just not done cycling yet! I've been adapting down from my Kestrell road cf...then to a triple crank TREK 1420....for the last two years I've been riding an electric Giant Lite pedal assist. I've been able to keep my miles up to about 100+ a week using this workhorse, and even did a ride from Harrisburg PA to D.C. last summer, but the Giant is sooooo heavy. I also carry an extra battery with me so I can travel 50+ miles a trip.
I really miss riding my road bike, but the problem is I have no ability to lift my right leg over the bar and I also have foot drop (along with a host of other issues..balance; vision, etc.. we don't have to go into here). Despite my exhaustive research on the web, I cannot find an electric pedal assisted road bike (drop handlebar) with a step through frame. Can anyone point me in the right direction? I want to ride while I still can ride. Frankly, I think my fitness has kept me as healthy as I am for so long. Thanks
