It's Different For A Reason!
The modern bicycle really hasn't changed much since the Englishman John Starley introduced the "safety bicycle" over one hundred years ago. While it is true that advances in materials and manufacturing processes have brought durability, efficiency, and economy undreamt of in Mr. Starley's day, the design has essentially gone unchanged.
Although bicycles today are easier to ride than ever before, they remain as comfortable as a one hundred year old "boneshaker".
Comfort Ride design considerations
After studying various cycling related ailments involving the lower back, neck, hands, and wrists, we determined that by setting the rider's position back it would transfer the weight from the hands to the seat and feet. This avoids the hand and wrist discomfort commonly experienced among cyclists. Additionally, a benefit to this approach is an ergonomically advanced relationship between the seat, hands, and feet. After extensive testing, Comfort Ride has developed what we believe to be the world's most comfortable bicycle.
The "laid back" seat angle we developed places the hands higher, back straighter, and the feet set forward to create a safer, more comfortable position. Also the "laid back" seat angle allows the rider to place both feet on the ground when stopped, while maintaining optimum pedaling position.
(This is important to the health of your knees!)
This position makes it virtually impossible to be pitched over the handlebars due to the fact that very little of your weight is bearing on the handlebars. Finally, our bicycle's unique seat positioning allows for "heads-up" viewing, enabling you to have a greater field of vision. This increases your safety as well as your visual pleasure. Wouldn't you rather see something other than the road rushing past your wheels?
What about those wheels ?
The front wheel is even smaller than the rear wheel to allow very low stand-over clearance. This makes it easier for you to mount and dismount the bicycle.
