1) Stand with your back against a wall and separate your feet so they are shoulder width apart.
2) Place a book between your legs and against the wall with the spine of the book facing upward. Raise the book until it fits snug against your groin.
3) If you can recruit some help, have the other person measure from the top of the book (spine) to the floor. If you are on your own, use care to hold the book in place and measure from the top of the book to the floor.

Delivering Spring 2021
- Battery System
- Fit & Finish
The lightweight, mid-mounted Brose S MAG motor features a brushless internal rotor and produces 90Nm/66 ft. lb. torque, plenty of power assistance to provide a quick launch from a standing start and to give the rider the ability to conquer challenging hills.
The Gates™ carbon-fiber belt drive is smooth, quiet, and maintenance-free; it requires none of the frequent lubrication or adjustment of a traditional chain-drive system.
The fully enclosed, maintenance-free Enviolo AUTOMATiQ intelligent automatic transmission is an electronically controlled CVT (Constantly Variable Transmission) rear hub that automatically adjusts the gear ratio to maintain the rider’s optimal, personalized pedaling cadence as terrain or speed changes.
The RUSH/CTY STEP-THRU is equipped with an integrated, 529Wh lithium-ion battery that can be quickly removed from the frame without tools. The battery locks into the the frame for enhanced security.
The integrated, removable, 529Wh lithium-ion battery delivers a real-world range of 30-90 miles, depending on ride-mode selection, terrain, and how much pedal input the rider supplies.
The lithium-ion battery can be charged on-the-bike through a charging port conveniently located on the frame downtube, or easily removed for off-the-bike charging. Charge times are as follows: 0-100% = 4.75hrs; 0-75% = 2.6hrs.
- Wheels & Tires
- Fenders & Racks
Front and rear hydraulic disc brakes utilize four-piston calipers and 203 x 2.3mm heavy-duty brake rotors designed to deliver confident braking performance in most riding conditions. This is essential for faster-moving eBicycles and all-weather commuting.
Wheels consist of 27.5 x 35mm alloy rims laced with stainless-steel spokes and fit with high-volume, 2.4-inch diameter Schwalbe Super Moto-X tires. The result is a perfect combination of low rolling resistance, ample shock absorption, and responsive, predictable handling.
Front and rear fenders protect the rider from wheel spray when riding in wet or dirty conditions. Front and rear cargo racks increase utility and practicality, providing a convenient way to carry small loads.
- Ride Modes
A bright LED headlamp mounted on the handlebar stem illuminates the path ahead and can make the rider more conspicuous after dark. Bright combination LED tail and brake lights integrated into the frame dropouts are designed to make the bike more visible from the rear. A distinctive LED front signature light illuminates whenever the eBicycle is powered up.
Eco Mode for a gentle amount of assistance in flat-and-favorable conditions
Tour Mode for the optimal blend of assistance and economy in mixed conditions
Sport Mode for pronounced assistance away from corners or over rolling hills
Boost Mode for any riding condition requiring a sustained boost of extra power
The Serial 1 app, which will launch in Spring 2021, will allow easy access to key rider data and also can be used as a secondary display when veiwed on a smartphone paired via Bluetooth with the Serial 1 eBicycle.
Fit & Finish
Frame geometry is optimized for each frame size to maintain a comfortable riding position and consistent handling across all rider sizes, regardless of rider height. The desired riding posture for the city bikes is upright to maximize comfort and awareness of the rider’s surroundings. Both the frame geometry and contact points were evaluated, to make sure that our size range is well suited to nearly every customer.
Brake lines and electrical wiring are routed through the frame, promoting longer life and less maintenance through protection from the elements and clean, snag-free styling.
Contemporary design touches like the sleek, integrated battery, the elevated chainstays, and the mass-centralized motor position all mark the beauty, craftsmanship and emotional connection inspired by Harley-Davidson.
The sophisticated commuter. The RUSH/CTY model is a premium, full-feature eBicycle designed for adventure-seeking adults ready for more-convenient and fun commutes, reduced riding effort and easier access to healthy lifestyles.
