I am looking to buy a half bike but living life in quite a hilly area. Does anyone have any experiences / advice re hills and how easy it is to ascend them Thanks Adam

Hey Adam, I've had my Halfbike for a little under a year and as I've noticed, most smaller hills are ok but anything steeper than a 6% grade gets tough for me if it's a long hill. I enjoy hitting a few hills during my rides because it's fun to have the variety.

Hi Adam, Tha Halfbike 3 with its 4 gears and special sprocket for hilly riding can do even better, but the comfort zone still lies at around 8% gradient.

Hi ! I have myself some hills. It's doable, but you need to learn on flat ground before. Learning to go down is harder than go up for me ;)

Hey @Adam L. What @Herry S. wrote. Going up the hill is easier than going down the hill. I am living in the beginning of the German Ore Mountains and for hilly area, I recommend the Halfbike 3 because of its break (especially when it is raining). The 4 gears are also helping you but realistically written, you need some training to climb up a bigger hill - *but* it is doable. The reward when reaching the upper part of the hill is enjoying the way down.
