I posted this message on one of the other topics and it was suggested that I post it here on the general forum to see if anyone has a Biria or has ridden one.
I have been looking at a Biria EZ off which is imported from Germany. I live in the Midwest and the bicycle shop is in a town about 90 miles from where I live. I can't find any consumer comments on the Biria and it has been in this country since about 2002. It is a new design with a low step up.
About four years ago, I gave my old bicycle away and bought a new three speed with a coaster brake. It is a man's bicycle and I cannot get used to getting off.
I have upset twice with it now and decided that it would be cheaper to buy a new bicycle than pay the hospital bill when I break something the next time I end up in a heap.
When I get off the bicycle, my reflex is to want to move my right leg to the left and the bar on the man's bicycle is in the way. Evidently, part of learning how to ride a bicycle is that you don't forget is how to get off the bicycle the way you learned.
I am tired of bicycles that have brakes that don't work, gears that don't work so will buy one at a bicycle shop. Almost have to, because Kmart and Walmart don't stock girls bicycles. That's why I bought a boys bicycle last time, I couldn't find a girls bicycle.
www.biria.com and check bicycles to see a picture. They also have a picture on the first page.
I was wondering anyone here has one and how they like it. With the EZ off new design, I am wondering if the frame will stay straight, etc.
thank you, Mary
