If you’re thinking about taking the plunge- DO IT! My blix has radically changed my life. I am 27 and, due to a vestibular disorder, I cannot drive and struggle to ride buses. This has created a significant barrier in my life, both in terms of my freedom and autonomy. Not to mention the cost of taxi and uber! Now, I am free to go anywhere I want with ease! I feel so stable on my Vika+ and I cannot help but smile with every ride. I am logging an average of 75 miles a week commuting to work and hobbies. I have ridden it through rain, snow, high winds, and in the middle of the night and felt very safe in all conditions. I tried and researched many brands before I settled on Blix but the craftsmanship, customer service, and unique design on the Blix line had me sold. I have also found the warranty services to be wonderful. I LOVE my bike!
