- Its a heavy beast, unlike normal bikes where you can just lift the front wheel, its impossible on a bakfiest. Its like a motorbike when you wheel it around.
- With this sort of weight I still havn't got the hang of taking off on an elevation going up, even with e-assist. Will need some practice.
- The bike is great on the flat or downhill but going uphill, it is really hard going; I'm glad we added the e-assist. Going on the flat with e-assist you fly along.
- Don't look at the front wheel and steer, this only puts you off; you need to look ahead.
