I'm looking for some advice for my 77-year-old father's new bike. He hasn't been on a bike for some time, and has recently become interested in getting back on two wheels. Being able to put his feet on the ground, while still seated, seems like a "no-brainer" for safety's sake.
I've found the Trek Pure and Electra Townie models. The internally-geared hubs are the preferred configuration, for ease of use. He wants nothing to do with a derailleur set-up. Are there any other models available out there that we should have a look at? Does anyone have some experience with one of these bikes?
