I am pleasantly surprised that my Cowboy feels like a "normal" bike. So i get my kick from biking still. I love the support when getting speed, it feels much safer when crossing a road or something like that. The support when taking steep hills feels natural, i still have to make more effort, but like i am 20 again, same for steep bridges over canals. And it 's a joy when having a headwind, again more effort is still needed, but it is more enjoyable for my knee joints.
