I recently acquired a medium sized halfbike with the 3 speed hub. I am an avid cyclist and an outlier with both DF and Recumbent bicycles. I became adept at the halfbike in about 20 minutes in a parking lot. I immediately felt new muscles working, including my core and upper body. I have ridden as far as 6 miles in the first week and really enjoyed the bolt upright riding position. I live on a busy bike path and had no problems maneuvering around joggers and baby carriages. I like the bike's minimalist vibe and simple solutions for folding and braking. I am thrilled to have added the halfbike to stable of human powered vehicles. I am excited to experience future variations of the halfbike and will watching its evolution with great anticipation.
