Nowhere in the description does it say that this bike weighs 63kg!

The description states 29kg.

According to the exact weight, it's 28.2 kg with the battery mounted.

The battery alone, 830Wh, weighs 4.1kg.

 

The bike is of the Low Step type with a single tube, so the tube walls must be thicker to maintain proper stability for users, especially those weighing over 100kg.

 

This bike is not suitable for carrying up stairs unless done by two people. Generally speaking, except for folding bikes, every bike will pose a lot of difficulties when carrying it up stairs.

Such bikes should be regularly stored in the garage.

63Kg would be a lot to lug anywhere but the review says it weighs 29Kg, not light, but not out of line for that type of step through ebike either

63 kg is a lot of weight to muscle up stairs or lift on to a bike rack. Users will need to have a safe place to keep the bike on the ground level and not rely on using a car to take the bike further afield.
