I ordered a half bike because I don't like sitting on a bike seat too long (male problems). It was easy to assemble. Learning balance and turning took several attempts over a few days. Now, I can comfortably ride from home to downtown, about 3 miles. I tried riding from home to work (5.5 miles) with a backpack but it changed my balance enough to making riding difficult.
I am happy with the half-bike. It is fun to ride and great for short trips. It is also significantly less expensive than an Ellipti-Go, which has a similar riding motion.
