Flat Feet are Important!
(Saint John, New Brunswick, Canada)
When I took the safety course, we were told to switch inbetween the bikes so we could get an idea of what suited us and made us feel more comfortable. One happened to be an off $ on road thats seat was at my belly button. i hoped on thinking nothing of it till i had to stop. IF YOU CANT TOUCH FLAT FOOT THE BIKE IS NOT FOR YOU!!! (Or you need a lowering kit).
That was the only time I have dropped a bike as it stands!
