Any feedback, suggestions and ideas are most welcome.

Maybe a brake lever with a bell? :D

A performance model; I'd definitely upgrade to a model with stiffer framing, more permanent construction of the handlebar riser (I have to tighten those quick release knobs every few miles, even with a spring washer and washer added), and a Sturmey-Archer 5 speed freewheel hub.

Strinjam se z zgornjim veleposlanikom okrog močnejše aluminijaste konstrukcije predvsem v območju gonilnega mehanizma in tudi sam moram večkrat zategnit tista plastična prijemališča za hitro zlaganje na lesenem delu Halbike... Sicer pa v vožnji res uživam...

A lot of improvement ideas on the technical side can be offered, but I am finding myself really enjoying the fenders... when they don't fall off. I am speaking mostly about the ones for the front wheel, I am constantly on the lookout about losing them. Any mechanism implemented from the get-go to keep them fixed there will be a welcome addition.

Perhaps a wider handle bar or a way to rest both elbows on long rides (I typically ride 10+ miles an outting) ...on straight aways, I like to streamline myself (because as we all know, regardless of whichever way the wind is blowing, we're always going to be a sail) in that crouched road bike position, and then focus on my RPMs.

I miss a bell, i tried mounting one, but it wasnt a succes for me as it takes up handlebar space. Being able to let other ppl know ur coming or want to move past them is very helpfull especially in crowded places like here inthe Netherlands. Also the lights arent quite sufficient, from the side people hardly notice you when riding in the dark.

It would be great to carry a couple of things on the bike. Some kind of "Halfpack?" A backpack get sweaty.

@ Dave J.: We expect to hear more about Nikolaj's experience with attaching a small bag to the handlebar. He has tried different configurations on his Halfbike for longer rides using both readily available products as well as ones that are handmade specifically for his Halfbike.

@Mihail K. - Sounds good, thank you.

I would like to see an independent rear Truck or a truck that will flex on turns (maybe made of carbon fiber) as an upgrade or performance model.

Hi Kent, can you give some more info about the picture you uploaded?
(ambassador) 5 months ago
it's a Gila Board - 4 wheel independent suspension. wackyboards.blogspot.com/2015/03/gila-board.html

It even has a sway bar on it.

OK thanks, looks interesting

The handles get so close to my waist when climbing. I'm curious if the overall ride would be better with the handlebar one or two inches further forward.

I think you can add more accessories, not sure that Halfbike needs to make them. They can have them collected and logged on. Then it can be added value for the higher price. I think it would be good with larger boundaries of colors & wood. So people can customize their Halfbike more. It should cost more and not be the same delivery time. Black default or customize. I think brake lever with a bell? is a good thought or just bell. It would be good if there were reflections on Halfbike, red back and white front and an orange in the wheel.

The rea sping should be painted for preventing rust/ corrosion. I dit it on my own, for ensuring the not where to corrode. Have further more added more reflectors making it more visible. Red on the rear and white on the front three frame. A bell would be nice, a nice thinge.
