In the spring of 2017, I bought a Halfbike for the challenge, and it looked like fun. The bike arrived in two days, and assembly took a leisurely hour. For my first ride, I just stood on the Halfbike, coasted down a gentle hill for a few hundred meters, then walked back up and did it again. Within 30 minutes, I was pedaling comfortably in a straight line. Within a week, I was at ease with turns and uneven surfaces. Within a month, I routinely rode for two hours on paved paths in a forest preserve.
I recently moved to the Raleigh area in North Carolina (USA), and I still love riding my Halfbike. Please let me know if I can help you to decide whether to try or buy a Halfbike.
The people you see here are not our employees, but enthusiastic halfbikers helping us spread the word. They are not available 24/7 so please be patient and kind.
