I am suffering from a nerve impingement that makes standing, walking, and sitting in a chair very difficult but do get a lot relief from riding as it puts me in a position that relieves the pressure on the areas that are being affected and the handlebars make a good support to take some load off my back.

I still have trouble getting a leg over a regular bike, even my mountain bike isn't low enough at times.

I have taken to riding my Twenty Folder which has a low step over, a comfortable ride and riding position, and an anatomically correct saddle that takes pressure off of my perineal area.

It even has shopping baskets.

It does exceed the weight I am allowed to carry but that is not an issue as it lives in the garage or gets walked into the entry where I can fold it up.

I volunteer as a bike mechanic and also love to tinker and modify things... the Twenty never came with alloy wheels or a dual drive and they sometimes be found for very little money.
