So it was February last year when I received my Halfbike and I'm amazed at how hard it was to master in the beginning. Today riding it is as fluent and fun as I'd seen it done in the original advertisements. I've learned just as many other have to relax and forget about all you know about bikes and skateboards. The half bike will perform brilliantly once you let go and trust it to stay underneath you.This is by far my favorite pastime. It is still a conversation piece a year plus later.
