compare a tomos sprint to a tomos LX

the lx is top tank

the sprint is step through same with St and arrow

step thru just means theres nothing there like the lx and streetmate has.

Someone really needs to write the step-through article.

Re: top tank vs step thur tanks???? what does this

top-tank = looks like a motorcycle

step-through = looks like a "ladies" bicycle

Re: top tank vs step thur tanks???? what does this

The step thru was designed so women could ride them wearing dresses

Re: top tank vs step thur tanks???? what does this

Dont be sexist. Men can also ride them wearing dresses.

Re: top tank vs step thur tanks???? what does this

so your telling me i dont actually have to wear an actual dress???? damnit. i feel like a jackass now.

seriously... wouldnt it be easier to just google "step through" first instead of making a post like this? hmmm...

Back in the day most cyclemotors were built on a ladies bicycle style frame. The idea was that by making the bike unisex you could sell the same bike to anyone, this made it much easier for the maker. Brands started making cyclemotors appealing to just about anyone. The added extensions to the exhausts to keep oily mess off the rider, added side covers, leg shields and chain cases to keep the mess down. This way your suit or skirt didn't become ruined.

Top Tank looks like a motorcycle. Step Through looks like a moped. Peace, Jerry.
