granted, mine doesn't look exactly like this, but you get the idea. I have started riding mine everyday, and almost twice a day, and I was able to go up a flight of stairs w/o pain yesterday, yipeeeeeeeeee!!!!!!!!!!!!! for now, I don't know if any weight has been lost, but I know muscle has been found.
my knees have been killing me and it was suggested that maybe it was the. muscle and not just the joints, so I have been working on that. Dan replaced my thin tires for all-terrain versions for dirt roads. I have no gears to change and only a front brake. Dan took the basket off a few years ago and put a plywood board on it for when the kids rode together. I would like my basket back, but I won't ask for now because Dan is busy with the deck still.
