I ride a Rans Dynamik crank forward "comfort bike" and love it. I used it for my 17mi/day round trip commute for 10 years. Hill climbing is easy on this bike. When set up properly by pulling back on the handlebars you can add a lot of power, no need to stand. A "normal" bike now feels comparatively like a torture device.
