I bought my Halfbike 2 years ago. I was looking for something new and fun, that would challenge me and allow me to spend more time outdoors. The Halfbike had promised to make me feel like a child again....and it does!! I admit that I only use it on flat bicycle paths, and I don't do long distances. I am quite happy with a nice 10-12 km ride. I am glad I have taken a chance and bought the Halfbike. I did change the handlebar grips to have a more ergonomic and comfortable positioning with my wrists, and that was 100% worth it. Overall, I'm quite happy with my Halfbike!
