yes, yes it is.
i've got a brittle bone disease (osteo genesis imperfecta) which, thank god, in my case isn't as severe in adulthood (i'm 33 in december) as it was in childhood. i think i last rode my huffy singlespeed when i was in 5th grade or thereabouts...
didn't get back on a bike until last august. even had to spend a couple of hours in an empty lot just to learn how to start up without falling sideways or backwards.
my most recent accomplishment is a 45+ mile trek out to phoenixville.
on a 20" 3-speed.
