Excellent cycle. Better than the videos or marketing. It does it all. Workout cycle, commuter vehicle, riding with the kids, out for a fang - with the wind in your hair. I use the Halfbike more than my bicycle now, did not see that coming. How is it to learn? Great, follow the instructions, trust the design, you will be hooning around before you know it. Highly recommended, 10 out of 10. So easy, when you get it.
