Hello Retro Grouch,

Saw you are a 559 fan. My wife has a Villager. I have tried riding it but don't like the feel of my knees coming up close to my stomach.
I see the 559 has a more reclined seat though it doesn't adjust which I thought may be more comfortable for the above mentioned

Do you miss the fact of not having an adjustable seat on your 559? Also, is it harder to pedal with the low pressure tires?

I only ask because I'm considering buying a 559, couple of used ones for sale here.

Thanks, Scubaquarius
