I'm thinking of getting a regular bike. I have some moderate balance issues, which is why I got a trike but I find that riding a trike is getting cumbersome and limiting.
I'm an adult learner so I don't know if the balance issue is because I've never ridden or owned a bike and I'm afraid of falling or I'm just a klutz.
I have been looking at bikes and found the ones that involve "crank forward" or "flat food techonology" and wonder if this is a good approach OR should I just "cowgirl it" and get a regular bike.
I'm thinking of a Woman's Electra 3-speed Townie. So far, this is the one with flat foot technology. I can't seem to find any others that feature this.
I'll still be using my trike for short distances but I plan to use the bike for longer trips involving the bus. Here you can hook up your bike to the front of the bus, whiche comes in handy when the bus leaves you a couple of miles away from your ultimate destination.
