"It seems to be in that not-sweet spot somewhere between a bicycle and a longboard - much less useful for long distances, bad road surfaces and load-carrying than a bicycle, but more of a hassle to lug around than a longboard."

Tonight I saw a young woman on Lincoln Ave. wearing her helmet backwards, on the back of her head. I take this as a positive sign - another new cyclist in the city!
